out of focus, and overexposed.

Better focus would have done it. Good idea and effort!

Include more of the white keys and sharper focus would improve this photo. Nice take on the challenge though. 7

this is a fun idea, it could be focused a little better.

Even as an abstract image, I would have liked this better in focus.
05/14/2004 04:57:13 PM
Good point of view, but completely out of focus.

This is a good idea, and would have been a good image if you had the proper equipment, you need to back off with your cammera until the image is in foucus and then crop down to what you want, or you need to invest in a macro lense, which will enable you to get this close to your subject.

It's not very sharp, is it? I'm wondering what the opposites are supposed to be: the black and white keys (I'm guessing that the picture is a close-up of a piano), or the black and white colors visible on these black keys. IMO this shot would have gained a lot had you zoomed out a bit and got a wider shot of a few keys.

Focus may have been better.
05/13/2004 12:29:45 PM
not nearly focused enough
05/13/2004 12:12:06 PM
Hard to tell what it was at first glance - now I see it's paino keys. Nice attempt - would have preferred it in focus, more contrast. The composition would have been GREAT! Nice try...

I think it would have been much better if the white keys were in focus.
05/13/2004 02:42:36 AM
it seems a little blurry.
05/12/2004 08:15:33 PM
Mmm not sure of the opposites on this? And the blown out spots on the black keys is very distracting..
05/12/2004 08:04:08 PM
A clearer shot would've been nicer.
05/12/2004 03:52:02 PM
I don't understand why the shot is so blurry. And I think the balance of white abd black keys needs to be better to work for the opposites theme. Keep at it!

Great idea! Overly shallow DOF. Pull out a bit, and refocus.
05/12/2004 02:07:26 PM
If this was in focus and the end of the keys weren't blown out with light this would probably rate an 8 or above, I like the crop and the composition of the shot but the other factors hurt it a great deal. A 3

I don't really like the glare on the front of the black keys. I don't know if it was intentional, or not so I am scoring as if it was. good luck.
05/12/2004 12:36:57 PM
Seems to be out of focus. Why are the faces of the black keys white.
05/12/2004 09:21:34 AM
blurrier than mine
05/12/2004 07:08:23 AM
Nice, wish you could have got the focus though! You might have meant to do it this way though, but my opinion differs I guess. I think if you rework your photo you could have a winning one here... (I'm jealous!)

Why so blury?
