This was extremely last minute. I went downstairs, thinking I'd get a few shots of my "brown" cat. She decided she didn't have any interest in sitting still for me (despite the treats,) and I started messing around with this trunk instead. It belonged to my Great Grandma. She brought it with her on her trips to Sweeden; so it undoubtedly has a lot of history behind it.

I adjusted Brightness/contrast, Hue/satruation, curves, played with the selective color, cropped and rotated.

:::Critique Club Here:::

First Impression: Just couldnt figure our what it was at first. Slowly started making sense some kind of chest or travel bag. The wow factor was not there though. (4)

Technical: Composition is just too centered. I understand the section you were trying to show but I think a different angle could haver really changed that. Also would have eliminated the hotspot caused by the flash on the left side by the rivets. (4)

Appeal: Once again there was'nt the wow effect. Very difficult to add the wow the effect in a photograph like this but using maybe a different angle with a closer crop could have added a little more to the overall appeal by involving the texture of the chest, handle, and handle rivets. (4)

Challenge: Meets the challenge or brown since there are difinetly various shades of brown within the photograph. (10)

Title: The title helped understand what the photograph was conveying about the old chest (10)

Overall: (6) Some areas of improvement and thats what learning is all about. (What do they say "everyone is a critic")

Love the cracks and aging on the trunk, it shows that there are actually "memories" to be had here... I am curious to know where that ticket was to!

Great! Would be a 10 if the reflection on the left side weren't so harsh.
