|Hello and greetings from the Critique Club.
Weston was known to stress the form of his subjects, to remove them from our mind as simple objects (a shell) and convey their very “is-ness” or essence through his photos. I think you’ve done a decent job of that with this entry. The crenellations in the shell, particularly the fashion that they reach deeper into the subject, really defines things well. I also particularly like the right side of the shell, with the inlet leading into it, an access point to its depths. I’m quite alright with the edges not being so definite, so absolute, as it encourages a departure from the objective identity of the subject. All in all, I think this was a good product put forth for the challenge. There appears to be a little bit of the background evident, ever so slightly, in the top and bottom right, which could have been darkened, but this is minimal and of little consequence. All in all, good entry in a tough challenge.
