A very interesting macro image and didn't think to try this out but then again you always come out with the most interesting ways of seeing the assignment etc.   Posted: 06/06/2021 05:41:16

Wow! A great shot to go perfectly with the topic. Very effective use of depth of field to draw our eye ti the subject.   Posted: 06/15/2021 10:55:02

Well done. This is an interesting composition with the soft framing around the subject and my eye is immediately drawn to the area of dark contrast.

I noticed the bandage on the man's elbow which you might try removing. I do not think you need as large a frame and you might consider cropping tighter. Also, this image would do well in monochrome as another option.   Posted: 06/15/2021 15:52:20

Hi Fat, Wonderful macro image, good focus on the person with blurring of the rest of the frame, person well positioned within the frame, holds your eye with no where else to go, I looked at Judith's B/W conversion, however I do prefer the colour, gives you more to explore.   Posted: 06/16/2021 18:02:53

Your comment is interesting. I am doing a lesson on monochrome so turned everyone's image into monochrome to see how it looks. Color brings an added dimension to images because color has symbolic meaning and can draw and attract the eye.

That is what fascinates me about Fat's image. It stands so wonderfully with its shapes and lines and the eye immediately goes to the dark area, his head and jacket and I ask where is this man gazing and what does he think. I do not need the catchlights in the man's eye to tell me where to look. The three white lines in the structure point to the man. Then the turn of the man's head points me to the right but not out of the image because I am held in by the black point, his head.

Love it. Very creative use of framing. You always do something that I want to copy!   Posted: 06/19/2021 15:17:09
