good conversion 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2006 09:14:26 PM
I like this a lot but the jacket hanging on the fence and the garden hose in the background are distracting in this particular composition. I'd like to see a little more breathing room around the outsides of the frame, particularly to the right and along the top.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2006 02:56:59 PM
This made me stop and think...some were sad, some happy...who? we'll never know. Very reflective photo which tells a lot.

Effective use of sepiatone. Very moody.

It's a pretty cool photo, but I think the contrast is hiked up a little too much, because there seems to be a loss in detail in the helmet and clothing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 06:06:07 PM
good
10/25/2006 05:47:26 PM

Nice shot. Good light/shadow contrast. I think duotone works very well here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2006 12:42:37 AM
I think these other things distract. It would be more impressive with a lonely helmet on the bench, IMHO.
overall score: comp-2,MC-2,PP-2,impression-1,wow-1 = 8.
