I'm new to dpchallenge.com.

I've been doing digital photography on and off for a few years and have recently taken it up as a serious hobby. The primary reason I become a member is have a chance to receive comments and opinions on my photos so I can improve upon my techniques, skills, and etc.

So, if you would be so kind to take a look @ my first 2 and only entry so far and give me more comment. I'm not disputing my votes, I just want to get more input on my photos so I can learn and improve. I am sure everyone here would like this done for them too.

Here they are:

Thank you!

I commented on your first one - the zipper without someone / something else in the frame the shot looks incomplete

As for your second - may be if you did not invert the picture you would have got a bit better rating...

I responded similarly as Tarique. I thought you used a creative idea in the zipper and a creative technique with inverting the image with the chain link fence. Your execution of the the technique was good but the subjects in the BG detracted from the attitude the chain link fence created. Seeing a solitary tree or a demolished wall or something else through the chain link fence and then inverted in color would definitely have gotten a very high score from me as the technique lends a strong feeling to the image. I didn't see that as a strong entry for the challenge. The zipper for Inside Looking Out was creative and well-executed but the lack of focus beyond the zipper left the viewer (me in this instance) with no good focal object to look out at. I think I would have scored this much higher with a model or something eye catching outside the zipper. The depth of field was pretty shallow on this image, too.

Those are the reasons I scored these lower than you might have liked. It's not that you don't have some good ideas or know how to use creative techniques. I just felt that these two examples of your work could have been better with minor composition changes.
