I expected this. Unfortunately it fell apart as I tried to sharpen in photoshop. Here's the original. Thanks for being kind.

Good concept but poor image quality

I like the point of view but its a bit blurry or pixelized.

Out of focus? I don't know - this photo has an unnatural halo maybe due to excessive sharpening of a small crop?

thematically has potential, but resolution too low

Cell phone shot? You caught a unique perspective, but the image quality is so poor it's impossible to get past.
11/24/2007 01:51:47 AM
a bit blurry for me
11/23/2007 10:11:42 PM
Would be better in focus.

Very nice composition that tells the story well. Shot is too pixelated, though. Did you enlarge from a low-res image? Too much sharpening around edges. Would like to see this reshot at higher resolution.

Technicals: 0/2 - is that taken with a phone?

Composition: 1/2 - good POV; slightly tilted; flat lighting; crop through his head is not so good

Challenge Relation: 1.5/2

Originality/Creativity: 1/2

Overall Impact: 0.5/2

Not sure if this is out of focus or taken on a 'very' low resolution mobile pbone camera
11/21/2007 10:49:40 PM
nice perspective. bump up your resolution for a less bitmapped image.

i like the angle, but it should have been more focused.

I really like the POV on this shot but sadly I think you may suffer because of the lighting, noise and the fact that it is slightly out of focus.

To be honest it in my view (an inexperienced amateur) it is easier to work on the technicals than it is to develop a creative side so you are more than half way there. Perhaps this would have looked slightly better in black and white where on occasion noise can enhance the finished product

I dont think this is going to do brilliantly in the challenge but I do really like the concept

not even in the right size?
11/21/2007 11:02:11 AM
Nicely composed but the focus is just too off.
11/21/2007 10:52:49 AM
out of focus
11/21/2007 09:05:23 AM
The focus and sharpness seem off. Great angle.
11/21/2007 05:19:54 AM
nice perspective but the image is out of focus nnd there is a halo around the book is distracting
