Critique Club Comment

Composition : There is one strong line here that seems to be nicely placed.

Exposure/Lighting : Large portions of the top are completely lost in black while sections of the middle are burned to pure white. As I can't really tell where this was (the title suggests a store) I can't be sure if this could have been avoided.

Focus : Focus didn't seem to be an objective of this image. The blur of whatever is in the middle (shopping cart) seems to indicate motion from the lower left to the upper right, but not so I can be certain of it. I really wish you had included Shutter / Aperture / ISO as that could have helped me figure out what you were going for.

Emotion/Challenge : The feeling of motion is certainly present. I just would have been happier if I could detect direction, and maybe even what was moving.

Opinion : This is one of those shots that I sit and scratch my head over and am not surprised to see in a museum later. This could very well be high art, but if so, it's over my head.

Hard to figure out. But the quality of motion comes through well.

Just a bit too blurry for my taste.

this is a nice abstraction and i like the muted colors it gives a feeling of slow motion

Can't tell what the pictue is of.

1)Does the photo fit the theme of the challenge? I can not tell. (3)
2)Color: I have nothing here to focus on so I have to grade low. (2)
3)Composition: What is the Focal point here. Your title suggest shopping carts.
Am I missing something? (2)
4)Focus: Since there is no real focal point, (if you consider the thing in the middle
a focal point then so be it.) I can not give a good score. (3)
5)Background: I assume it is a retail store of some sorts. Can not grade this very
Well. (2)
6)Lighting: This light is just way too harsh here. But since the focal point barely
exists, does it matter. (2)

I hate to be overly critical but you did not give me much to work with. I am sorry about this, but if I did not use my critique guidline I would have given this a 1.

Score overall is 2

Interesting photo. Even with the title I can't really identify what it is. 6 waltoml.

wow. i can comment on my image. (admins!)

To blurred with no way to tell what the subject really is.
12/09/2002 01:08:15 PM
I'm afraid that even with the title, there's nothing recognizable here.
12/09/2002 12:24:22 PM
Interesting image, but I have no idea what I am looking at.

This picture looks like a blob. You can not make out anything, and thus I do not see anything to do with movement. If there was a shopping cart in this photo I would of liked to have seen it!

subject is too blurred

Way too much motion. (Nice as an abstract, but impossible to tell what's actually going on.)
