|Critique Club Review:
You did a very good job of lighting the rope. Great contrast,depth of field, and detail. You can almost feel every fibre. You did use depth of field to isolate the rope. However, the background is still busy and distracting. The spires of the high rise buildings, are almost like arrows pointing your eyes to the top of the page. I really like the rope in the picture, the more I look at it, the more it almost seems 3-D, nearly jumping off the page. It's the background that did you in. It needs to compliment the rope, not compete.
