Hello from the Critique Club!

I have studied your image and have the following to offer:

Composition/perspective - coming at this house from a distance, being at ground level is a nice technique and works quite well here. The processing makes it look as though it is a mirror rather than a window which adds to the overall composition - an element that keeps you looking to see the rest. The slightly angled placement gives it an old picture feel. Many things on many levels working here. It works rather well too that the house is not exactly in focus/soft focus. Well done!

Color - the processing here puts this into two categories: the color portion has just enough color coming through to keep it color - the hint of red on the house, the soft blue/gray of the sky and the white of the snow. The duotone portion gives the image a stark and empty feel which is a nice contrast to the house. Really gives it a lonely and desolate overall feel.

Lighting - obviously natural - well controled. The white is not blown out at all and the detail/texture of the snow comes through nicely on both halves. No glares or odd reflections in the glass shows attention and detail to placement.

Challenge requirements - this has met the challenge requirements in every fashion. Your element of transparency is obvious and certainly is the strongest element of the overall composition.

Overall/my opinion - this is an image that demonstrates a very nice blend of the natual and the processed where the synergy between them is very strong and dynamic. It also demonstrates a strong ability to take an idea/concept and execute it to perfection. Very well done and pleasing image.

7 - Good. Criticism; not much, maybe a slightly different angle with the frame, not sure. Colors a little more vivid too, may have made this better in my opinion. Like the nice sharp angle/perspective.

Absolutley brilliant. I love the choice to go sepia instead of B&W, I doubt I would have thought of that, but it really makes the photo. I love the photo, but I also wonder what it would be like with the house in focus, instead of the frame...

Clever idea and well executed.

I really like the concept of this shot. The difference in tones from the window pane and the real world is very nice. I think I would have liked this shot more if everything in the image were in sharper focus. JMO

Hmm, it's tough when two people do essentially the same thing. I think the other entry is superior compositionally. Still, this isn't bad at all.
10/31/2005 07:47:05 PM
nice use of selective desaturation.

Ah--one of my favorites, if not THE favorite in this challenge....just a fantastic capture. The applied "snow" in frame really does it for sure--Good work

Wonderful--just very cool composition--one of my favorites

is that snow on the ground? i really really like the way you shot this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wow - this is the second shot I've seen using a frame. Great minds must think alike, I guess. My favorite part of your photo is the house itself. I also wonder how this would look as black and white instead of the sepa tone?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm guessing this is a mirror or a very clever trick. Either way it's very effective and looks good with the brighter scene and the falling snow. The position, angle and proportion of the house scene is also very good

Great texture and color combinations. Nicely done!
