Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Opening (Basic Editing)
Camera: Sony DSC-F707
Location: Woodstock, NY
Date: Sep 11, 2007
Aperture: f/2.0
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/39
Galleries: Emotive, Rural
Date Uploaded: Sep 11, 2007

The frame stands in front of the Art Society of Woodstock, NY and provides an ever-changing picture as the light changes, as people move past it and as the viewer's angle changes. I shot this with a Sony DSC-F707 I bought used for its ability to focus and frame in low light.
Adjusted curves, cropped, reduced size for web.

The flash on all 4 sides of the frame is harsh. It would be nice if you could have flashed the background instead. The frame is also not focused very well, and it's your subject. Done right the background may have looked like the picture in the frame.

Not "AN" opening (noun), but OPENING (verb)

I thought that this was a really good idea for a photograph and it would have been really nice except for the lighting. It appears to be a rainy and dark day if not late in the day. Its just too dark in the back ground. Other than that I really like the photo and the idea behind it.

Crop this tighter. The flash didn't help with the lighting.

The frame has too much glare from the flash and is not in sharp focus.
