Greetings from the Critique Club -

So how do I follow up with a comment after reading your dads. ;)

Really not a bad score here. You have an interesting image to begin with but I must say that I really want to see more of the bridge. I dont mind the fog covering up part - I just wish it wasnt covering so much. The lines and curves of the wire are interesting, just cut too short by fog. But whatcha gonna do? You can only shoot what you have in front of you and nature isnt always gonna give you the perfect options.

That said, you did pretty good here. Good eye for seeing an image available. Good job composing it in that you didnt have to crop much at all. Focusing on whats in your camera frame before hitting the shutter will yeild you better end product in the long run and a better eye for whats available to you. It really isnt a bad picture, it just lacks some of the wow power needed to get the higher votes. As you grow as a photographer that will come. You have a great mentor and teacher in your father. Milk all you can off him and all you can off this site and you will soon be leaving him in the dust. ;)

Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing your future entries!

Tim

Well Chris, you know that I thought that this would be a top 10 percent finisher. I, too, am a little disappointed that this didn't finish higher or that some people didn't care for the faded tower look.

But I think that you will always remember my reaction when we downloaded your memory card and these images appeared. I was so excited when I saw this shot that I loudly called you to come see what I was seeing. I think that this shot is fantastic and definitely shows the artistic potential that you have in photography. You did this one without my assistance and prodding while you were away and your mother says that you even gave her tips on proper composition.

You've done very well here to place where you did among the stiff competition. And while I would have liked to have seen this image score higher, I think that you did a wonderful job and this hints that you have a lot more surprises in store for all of us.

This looks like one and a half photos stuck together. I am not fond of the faded bridge tower.

Your great comment's give me the idea to experiment with your technique in my classroom this month. Thanks for the description and we will send you a photo if we are successful. I found your photo by reading a note Langdon made about a fox photo that led me to your relatives alligator who noted your profile as his favorite.
