Subject matter - abstract forms of environment.The effect that i trying to achieve - fragmentation of space, arrays.

What steps did you take in Photoshop or your chosen editing software or app? - Photographed originally on Canon 5D MKII. Cropping and basic editing in lightroom: contrast, sharpness a black-and-white conversion.

Hi Rashid: I like your image of abstract forms in the environment. Rather than trying to give you a long convoluted description of what I might do if this were my image, I took the liberty of just doing it.   Posted: 12/08/2017 08:19:42

Ella, thanks for the suggested option. I certainly want to leave part of the second window in the arch, as it is a tonal roll call for forms.   Posted: 12/24/2017 09:25:35

Well seen subject.
The composition is very well selected.
I feel that more contrast could help the image.   Posted: 12/11/2017 12:18:50

Hi Rashid
I like shapes in pictures so this sits very well with me and well seen and composed I did think it looked a little flat and love what Ella has done with it,its a simple image and one I find pleasing to the eye.   Posted: 12/13/2017 16:30:35

Rashid - your image certainly fulfills your brief of abstract forms in the environment, but I regret that it does not appeal to me at all. My apologies, but I find it very bland and uninteresting.   Posted: 12/19/2017 09:45:58
