Challenge: Triptych (Advanced Editing IV*)
Camera: Canon PowerShot Pro1

Date Uploaded: Nov 13, 2005

Three shots from a beach near Morro Rock (the dark rock in the center shot almost 2 miles away) Morro Bay Calif. Center shot is a macro of a shell about the size of a nickle.
The orange was supposed to be peach but came out wrong. What I had planned to enter [but couldn't update :( ] is on my portfolio.

lovely serene pictures marred by a garish orange background. I really wish you'd chosen a more subdued background color...

Nice colors, a very soothing shot, the border works good with the colors in the image.

i think the color of the border was a little too harsh for this picture, bu ti do think it's quite lovely... maybe just a little dark by my monitor... but i do like it a lot...

nice warm tone

Your frame colour, adn the sudden on-set of bokeh in the middle shot, disturb this collection for me. The colour I think removes the impact of the sunset colours in the actual photos, and the placement of the distant rock in the centre frame seems far stronger than the placemtn of the in-focus subject - my eye is constantly drawn there. The overall shaping of the outer scenes, pushing the attention to centre, and then the very strong thirds placemnt of that out-of-focus rock are what cause that I think. Given the uncomplicated nature of landscape photography - I mean the lack of complexity of reaction it provokes, such dissonant composition seems rather unuseful

good . I wish the shell was a little tighter

Three nice pictures, but the center one with shallow DOF throws the symetry off. Your (my) eye is drawn to the out of focus rock in the middle!

border is a bit large & distracting but lovely images :0) 7 for now
bump to 8 & yup the border needs to go... ;0)

border is too garish. the OOF BG in middle frame is distracting. other than that I really like the subject and handling and thougth in this.

I LOVE this idea, & how it came out. GREAT job!!!

Great colors and the focus on the center is great. (although I can't quite tell what it is. shell?) I think that having the water be more even on both sides would be more appealing, but perhaps less interesting. Border is a nice shade. 8

I like the way the color of the border goes with the shots but the middle image doesn't seem to fit well with the other two

now thats a good triptych..!! 10

This is really beautiful. The only thing I would change is the color of the border. Not sure I like the orange so much. It doesn't really detract from the beauty of the photos though.
11/14/2005 02:58:26 PM
Orange? wow that really pulls the eye away from the image. Concepts are good, images are beautiful, but orange????
11/14/2005 10:50:56 AM
The pictures are beautiful and make for a very nice triptych but the border color distracts from them, to me anyways. Maybe something a little more subtle? I had a hard time with colors as well. :-) 8

the matte color kiills me - what is a beautiful accent color in your images becomes overpowering - would love to see this on black - beautiful images -
11/14/2005 10:10:33 AM
The directions, the horizon and the central image are disturbing imho
11/14/2005 09:16:38 AM
Love the colors in this

5 - Good concept. Criticism; the framing color dominates and detracts from the colors and detail in your shots in my opinion. Like to see #2 with sharper focus on the shell, or perhaps just 'closer' to the shell/sharper angle, not sure. The feel within the shots is nice, especially the first, with the edge of the water coupled with the reflection, but I do not think #3 complements it, as the edge of the water is visually much further back, even though it also has a good reflection.

Bad choice on the border color, IMO. Otherwise nice job.
11/14/2005 03:05:36 AM
You have three pictures that really work well together, I just don't like the color of the frame.
