Comment by giantmike:
Good details/textures. It feels just a little flat somehow. Did you use on camera flash?

Greetings from the Critique Club!

*scratching head* compression artifacts? Where, Spiffy? *ahem* now on with the critique...

Initial impression: Very simple, powerful image. Less is more and it definitely works here. I voted quickly, which is probably why I only gave it a 6. Now, looking at it more, it warrants a 7.

Technical: Great setting, great thirds, nice murky image which offsets the flat blackness of the bulk of the figure...as has been noted already, as though a human has been cut out of the image. Deliberate or not, it works very well. Surprised at your settings - very shallow DOF, very high ISO and shutter speed. But it works.

Artistic: The note in hand makes me wonder if it is a summons of sorts. Wow, there really is a Loch Lomond?! I thought it was just a fictitous brand of whisky drunk by Captain Haddock in the Tintin series :-) And yes, the effective negative space does draw the eye to the person. Didn't even notice the not-perfectly level horizon until it was pointed out, which may help add to an unsettling feel.

Overall: Very well done image, quiet but menacing at the same time. What will the note tell the person to do?

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

Susan

I must admit, I am a bit shocked that my entry didn't do better.... but c'est la vie! I love it! I'm glad you do too :)

I love that laundry. I think it was the centered boat that knocked this out of ribbon contention, but I'm weird that way. I still gave you an 8.

Yup, I was pleased to see that, as anticipated, I am the only person anal enough to see those compression artifacts. Nice high score. I gave it a 7, in spite of the compression, though it might have gotten an 8 from me without it.


Could you point out the areas of 'compression' spiff? :)
