Fascinating. And a little scary.

IMO it seems to be a bit OOF - not sure if that was the look you were going for.
I like the feel of the picture, it is one where your viewers can look at it and try to figure it out or make up their own story line to go along with it.

Overall, good job.

To be honest, I am having trouble processing this photo. I like the shapes, the colors, the composition ... but I'm having trouble figuring out what I'm seeing. I like the sharp background and the soft foreground. It's my failure to understand.

OK, I'm going through the Free Study submissions, purposefully finding those images I think are shot with a less conventional eye - this is one of those images! Thanks for offering something that isn't just DPC friendly eye-candy (though of course there's nothing wrong with eye-candy). I'll be picking one of these images for the Mu (most underrated) award:

Positives:This is a very unconventional image - I like that part about it. I also like the overall coloration and lighting and the scene is certainly intriguing.

Critical stuff: To me, the overall feel of this is a little casual and un-crafted; I think the main culprit here is the chair on the stage which I think looks a little messy. I think the blur is a little distracting too - not enough to be become a feature yet enough to upset the overall clarity of the image.

Overall: I think the success of this image was dependent of you get everything perfect - I think you've nailed the colour and lighting but, for me at least, it is let down by other elements.

don't quite get this...must be a play but I'm not familiar with it at all and your focus is way off for me
