Fine, interesting and complicated image. I very much like the choice of focus that leaves the main figure in concentrated ambiguity. The openings, staircases and disparate lighting engender a sense of spaciousness in what could otherwise be felt as claustrophobic.


I agree.

Very expressive interpretation. Focusing on the environment instead of the protagonist may be unexpected but so powerfully makes the point. I'm so moved and won't forget it.

I would have been OK with her being out of focus if the Exit sign was as well.

So much to see in your photo! I like that the main character is out of focus, but you can still read her facial expression.

Lost in the process. Very nice.

A nice surprise. Shallow DOF is used here in a refreshing and unorthodox manner. The fact that the only truly sharp detail in the scene is the word “exit” is a added delicacy.

nothing is more clear than the exit. like all beautiful things, it teeters on the edge of leaving.

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

So good, the way out in the mirror is the icing on the cake.
