allright, well just in case anyone else stops in here and was wondering what i was trying to do.. i will explain myself.

the image is of me holding the key, the shadow of me holding the key and the reflection.. i cropped it tight so just the key is left.. and obviously i cropped it TOO much.. so that most peopel could not tell what i was doing. I liked that i was able to capture a relection as well as a shadow, and presented all three keys and me in a abstract, stylistic way.

Critique Club

Well, you obviously mis-read the challenge details.

I kind of get your point, what with the reflection and the shadow, but it never stood a chance, really, did it?

Your lack of entry of comments doesn't help my task here, as I have nothing to go an as regards your intentions.

Presuming you were trying to shoot what you have shot, then the main issue is quality: there is little or no detail in this photo. A lot of noise in the red, which is itself a muted version of the colour.

Beyond which i've no idea what to say to be constructive about this ...

As an abstract, then I simply don't like it - which is fair enough, I suppose. It doesn't work on any level in which I find interest. So I can't really critique it properly.

I missed this one. I'm sorry if I don't get it and perhaps I will once the voting is in.

Nice idea, but the shadow doesn't look like a person. That significantly reduces the effectiveness and interest of this shot.

It's a nice shot, but maybe a bit too abstract.

Nice picture with nice colors, but I don't get it: what is it? Where is your shadow?

Clever, but if only you had used your shadow I would have put you in a 7-9 area

This doesnt look much like your shadow
Nice colours though
