Critique Club Comment

I like this one, I actually created a similar type picture (without temperature gauge) recently for a local club competition but I must say this one is better than mine!

I love the colour of the gas flames licking up the side and the movement in the needle of the gauge.

To be really critical, the small marks on the burner under the flame are distracting and although rules say you can't edit them out, it may have been better if the background was more out of focus so they weren't as noticable. Maybe you tried this, I don't know. Also, the temperature gauge, in my opinion may have looked better if it you could see the whole of the dial as opposed to the bottom of it being cropped out.

Overall, a very good photo which is very effective and you should be commended for it. Well done.

Please feel free to PM me if you have any queries.

Like this idea alot, do not like the composition or the crop, detail is fine on the gauge...think the less of the burner mechanism seen would be better and different angle might have been chosen....perhaps from above and to the left or right.

two little points that I'll make, and only because this was a 'studio' type shot that gives you the freedom to setit up 'just so...'.

anyway, the thermometer is a little bit rotated (maybe just the way it had to be), and cropping off the bottom of it throws the balance off a little. I'd have left a little foreground i think.

anyway - nice colour, and good idea.

The color of the gas flame is great, and the transparency comes through in this photo. The thermometer adds a nice touch. This shot shows that sometimes breaking the rules (don't center the subject) makes a better composition.
