Critique Club for All Fall Down by Konador

Composition - I like the composition of this photo. The dominoes are falling right to left which seems more natural to those of us in western society. The captured motion is good, which meets the challenge. I like that the dominoes are falling slightly uphill. I think that a slightly more dramatic angle would've been acceptable, and perhaps a bit more appealing. The only thing I could recommend to this picture is that the picture be taken a little further back to show the fallen dominoes, the falling dominoes, and the still standing dominoes.

Background - Basic black was a great choice to show the contrast between an ivory subject and aforementioned black background.

Camera work - Motion is well depicted by this photo. The standing dominoes are very clear as they should be and the fallen ones are a little blurry, as they should be. Camera work is very well done.

Processing - I must have your secret. The color of the dominoes is great. I'm sure it took awhile to get that mastered. You probably had the help of some PS expert too as I have some of these dominoes and they are quite yellowed looking. Bravo!

Overall - First impression is that this is a very good image and it has achieved what it set out to do - depict motion with falling dominoes. The idea of showing the already fallen dominoes just came to me as I sat here looking at the pic. With a little more 'room' in the picture, you could show multiple strings of dominoes falling and vary the patterns a little too. But that's another picture another day. I like this one Konador, you did a great job. - Inspzil

PS - If I type "domino" or "dominoes" one more time I'm throwing the keyboard

I love how it goes from blurry to sharp just as the dominoes would fall. I imagine it took a lot of timing to get this just right. Good job.

This is a wonderful photograph and one of the better ones in showing motion. How many tries did it take to get this?

did you try any shots from above? I would have liked to see a few rows maybe at different stages of falling down... Its a nice picture.. maybe make the dominoes appear more white (in your editing program) might help them pop out a bit more. Good idea! :) 8

Ahh.. decided not to go for the Scalextrix then. ;-) Excellent image though (more effective as well).

This is how it should be done.

A closer crop may have made this photo more visually interesting.
