Fyrsta skipti í langan tíma sem ég kíki hérna í Krítíkklúbbinn og fæ íslenska mynd. Ekki slæmt að byrja að geta tjáð sig á íslensku :)

Kemur mjög vel út að nota silhouettuna til að ramma inn viðfangsefnið. Maður fær á tilfinninguna að strákurinn/maðurinn sé að klást við alkahólisma eða eitthvað svoleiðis og að hann sé svona lokaður af hjálpar. Vonandi skilst þetta :) Það er ekki mikið sem mér finnst mætti betur fara. Lýsingin er pottþétt og myndbyggingin fín. Eina sem mér finnst að mætti betur fara er ef þú hefðir tekið myndina aðeins ofar og þá verið með línurnar hægra megin og vinstra megin við hann alveg beinar en ekki smá á ská. En svo gæti bara vel verið að þú hafir þurft að taka hana svona smá neðan frá til að fá hreinan himinn en ekki jörð með. Gaman að sjá mynd sem segir einhverja sögu. Ekki bara eitthvað að splasha í vatn :) Fínt mynd í alla staði. Gangi þér vel í næstu keppnum.

kveðja, árni

Great use of the silhoutte with a transparant subject to round out the experience. Congratulations on your top 20 finish.

How awesome is THAT! I wonder where that window was he was sitting on. It looks like it must be pretty high to see all those clouds outside. As always, this photo fits right in with your incredible work!

Nice framing, and the spot of color in the bottle adds a lot of interest.

This is such an emotional image. I love the framing with the silhouettes on the side. THe stormy sky brings out so much mystery. Very nice.

Nice Framing...I like the composition too.
But the grains in the sky turns me off a bit.

I wonder what the shot might have been like if it were a liquor bottle, and the subject's head were hung a little more. Great job!
