Taken on Salt Spring Island, where garbage is art and art is just plain garbage. Where a use-it-later mentality turns into a use-it-never solution. Where you start five more projects before you finish the first. A Junk Yard Island passed off as culture.

In this scene, I was drawn to the statue lady with an old clock around her neck and a birds nest at her feet. Shots with her as the main subject lacked a relationship with the environment. I prefer this shot because it encompasses the mess of a scene and properly frames the small junk covered shack.

Hello from the Critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge well.

As Aimee says, ‘what a great find’. These sort of places are an endless source of fascination, anticipation and surprise. I like the creative way you have approached the subject by introducing a deliberate angle but a crop would improve it. The telegraph pole on the right is superfluous and distracting and we don’t really need any sky above. A crop that includes the 140 sign at the bottom right but excludes the pole, you would need to clone out the two power lines from it, and removing the top to just below the weatherboard, in my mind, improves the end result. If you do that I would also clone out the two spotlights at the top of the frame or else they would then become distracting, you could also ease the detail out in the foreground with a little dodging.

Thanks for an interesting entry Camelia
