To address some of the comments: This appears much different here than on my computer. There was a huge loss of detail when the image was resized to meet the site's requirements.

As to the comment: "This is not minimalism," how was that helpful? There were not a lot of guidelines given, which leaves things open to a lot of interpretation.

The only post processing on this was to balance the colors and bump up the contrast a little.

I hope thats not powerbait he's using, you'll never catch a fish with that in a lake with that PH level.

a poor detailed shot

too many fishing shots-- this is one of the better one's

This is lacking focus and detail. You want the subject to be more off center. You do have good horizon set-up on the lower one/third.

I sort of like the washed out colors to tell you the truth...
I bet you got some comments about them...

You have have pushed the minimalism theme a bit too far; it's impossible to have any appreciation of details. If it weren't for the title, I am not sure I could have identified what those colored dots are doing in the picutre.

interesting use of theme

not minimalism
04/28/2005 10:25:54 PM
good idea. I would have liked to see the subject a little more to actually see them fishing. 6

too minimal to make out the subject
04/28/2005 07:14:12 PM
Did the small file cause a loss in clarity?

The boat and people get lost. would like to see it closer and more in focus. Also, the colors seem a bit off...like maybe too saturated. 5

Beautiful reflections and light in the water. Meets challenge nicely.

Focus is too soft. Would be better if the subject wasn't dead center and the horizon was leveled. Looks like a beautiful setting.

The background is too busy for me too feel it meets the challenge description. If they'd been silhouetted against the sky, a cliff face, or a dam it would have made this a 'cleaner' pic and may have fit the challenge better. Also, the fishermen are a bit out of focus (which detracts from their 'stage presence' as the main subject) and your horizon is slightly tilted.

The trees and boat seem to be out of focus

This photo is nice. I would have like it more if I could have seen the subject better.

This is a nice image. I like the way the water reflects different things. I also like the angle in which you shot this image. Nice work.

A difficult image to comment on really, it has simplicity and is minimal, but the elegance I associate with minimalism is lacking

Pretty, but nothing draws the eye to the subject, which is almost hidden by the background.
