Keeping a Proper Perspective
by jasonlprice

Comment:
You've got a couple of problems here. Given your intent, you haven't zoomed in close enough -- the print is so small that I can't read any passages, or even reliably identify the book as the Bible. While you've blurred the presents, they so recede into the background that they look more like accidental distractions than part of the intended composition. The presents might have had more impact if you'd kept this in color and lost the manger scene, which is not needed given the other elements. The lamp doesn't add anything to the composition or your intended message, IMO.

I think this could be greatly improved by getting up close to the Bible, so that just PART of the passage (but enough to identify it) you want is in the photo. Maybe but the Bible a flatter angle, but I'd have to play with it to see what's the best position. Bring the presents in a bit closer, so they're more a part of the composition. Lose the manger scene. This arrangement also adds a VISUAL aspect to "perspective" which I think would score better than a photo based just on a more abstract definition of perspectiveas you've done here.

Very ominous. At first glance it seems overly dark, but the more I look at it more more I like it. I might suggest a different title such as "Trapped", though.

Comment:
Normally I would complain that the background shadows are obscuring the lines of your subject, but here the background appears to be PART of the subject. The whole image makes me think of those intensely bright days where you have to squint to see. I think you've done an excellent job capturing this.

Not really thrilled with the post-processing here. You appear to have pushed the saturation too far for my tastes. Compositionally, the buildings in the back are really competing with your subject. It might have been better to pick an angle where they are framing rather than directly behind the sculpture.

A bit less dark on the top of the photo would have made a better silhouette of the kite. I like the composition and the subject. A blue sky would have been better emotion-wise for the shot.

Would have been much better if your subject had been in the lighter area to the right of the image, rather than the darker left side.

A nice shot that captures the harsh brightness of the day. I wish you'd caught a bit less sun and more of the backlit water.

The birds silhouettes are very striking. My only complaint is you've got a lot of empty space without birds, especially in the lower half of the image. This might be stronger if you had cropped it down to the upper right quarter of the image.

[Edit] I take that back. After looking at some of the other bird shots, the empty space is what really sets the picture apart -- the smallness of the birds against the vastness of the sky. I get it now. Excellent! Bumping up.

Love the composition and colors. The subject matter is very iconic for a summer sunset scene. The subject isn't in good focus, though, marring an otherwise superb picture.

Very simple and clean choice of subject. The curves of the horns provide strong lines that allow a little light to define your shape. I'd have cropped a bit off the bottom and maybe let a bit more on the top to draw the eye to the interesting part of the subject a bit more easily.
