Which one?

Partial tire - ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30049/thumb/217608.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30049/thumb/217608.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Full tire - ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30049/thumb/217610.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30049/thumb/217610.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

...or just give it up?

He-he...well, it was just a thought. Working one of the Freeman Patterson exercises and this was one of the more interesting pics from the exercise. Thanks for the feedback. Anybody else out there? ;^)

Out of the 2, I prefer partial. This is because in the "full view" the left side is still slightly clipped which spoils the composition.

doesn't really do it for me sorry. Maybe if you had a squirrel in the picture?

The cropped one, however, there still needs to be something to focus on other than just the tire. <shrug>

I think you're on the right track going with B/W for an industrial feel, but IMHO the composition is not very appealing. I agree that there needs to be either more of the whole swing or something in addition to the tire to hold the viewer's interest.

Thanks all...

The rules for the exercise were:
Part 2: Pick up your camera, a 35-50mm lens, and your tripod, and go to the front (or back) door of your home. Take 19 steps. Mark the spot. Take seven more steps from that point. The seven steps from your original 19 mark the radius of a circle, in which you should shoot at least 20 images. You should feel desperation during the exercise. You will only start to make visual break throughs when you have run out of the obvious picture possibilities.

It was a fun exercise...although the results this time weren't too exciting if my tire picture was one of the more interesting of the bunch. ;^) Now...where's that squirrel when you need one???

WOW, not sure how I'd do with an assignment like that.

the tire swing reminds me of the one my grandpop had at his house when i was little. I think some grass would make this better and i vote the whole tire. I'm the kinda person who wants to see the whole thing or none of it unless its a macro and im supposed to figure out what it is.

Yep - grass would be cool...problem is it gets worn out from dragging feet. Don't know, for some reason the munchkins just like to do that. ;^)

Ok - I found some grass.

That first one from the new 2 is good :)

Looking back on the two originals, both crops had some problems. With only 2 chains on the 1st, it felt unsupported. The 2nd lacked a focus. I took the 2nd and did a recrop to include 3 chains for balance and an asymmetrical look for more interest. See what you think. Another thought, with the bright white patch at the 2 o'clock position on the tire, you could continue that (extra burn) through the center of the tire to indicate the wear trail.

With the grass, the 1st has the most interest. I think that placing the swing more to one side would work better on the compostion.

Thanks Ben...

and Rebecca - good point on the chains and crop. Hmmm...will play with the patch.
