About the Image(s)

This image was captured at VA Beach last year by mobile phone. This artist was creating an acrylic impasto painting using only piping bags. The way she painted was like a cake decorating technique that interested me. Please provide me with your comments.

Lieu-Hanh, your image this month tells a good story and is a nice travel narrative. I notice you've been doing a lot of "phone-ography" lately and the results are remarkable. The exposure is well balanced and the image is sharp. Filling the frame with your subject holds my eye and my attention.   Posted: 07/07/2024 23:14:42

Kieu-Hanh, I like the interplay between the artist and her artwork. You've captured the vibrant colors of her work. However, my eye doesn't stop at just the artwork, since the piece is inverted. You've also captured the unique look of the artist with details such as the paint on her leg. The blurred background gives a sense of place while letting the focus stay on the artist. If I look for any improvement, it would be that the artist's profile could be a bit sharper. That's just a small detail though. I like your lively "street scene" capture!   Posted: 07/11/2024 12:09:23

Interesting and well-captured moment. It evokes so many questions. Why are there two paintings on top of each other? What exactly is she doing? (Thanks for explaining.) Why does she have paint on her leg? My initial thought was that there was too much stuff around her and it was distracting. But after a couple more views I came to the conclusion that it is necessary to the whole of the photo. Nice work.   Posted: 07/11/2024 15:11:02
