About the Image(s)

My June image was taken some time ago. i’m sure it could be improved upon but for me the shades of brown, the shapes and the textures were the most important thing, although I also liked the lighting. It was taken in a ruined abbey on the Dorset/Somerset border. I actually have a print of this, on handmade paper, hanging on a wall in my house - but I suspect i like it more than other people do!.
Taken on a Sony NEX 5, A priority, 55mm, f6.3 at ISO800. Handheld.

I like your image. It is a pleasant image, with nice colors. I would crop off the light area on the right, I think that would help keep your eye in the image.   Posted: 06/06/2022 11:18:16

You successfully capture three dimension object. The light and shadow in this image was good.   Posted: 06/12/2022 07:42:23

First can we ask that you save your image at around 1000 pixels as this is very small and are we not a landscape group. The image you have posted is a nice 3D image of two pots with good use of vignetting to give further depth. Pleasing image.   Posted: 06/15/2022 10:25:48

It's a sudden style change and needs a few adaption for readers like me to appreciate :-)
Because at the first glance I didn't recognize it is a picture taken by camera. I thought it was an artwork like pencil sketch. And I'm curious about the background, the texture of the wall is very rare to see in nowadays life. And compared with that, the foreground seems not consistent because the pots look shining and new without the similar signs of frayed as the wall. Otherwise, it would be a very good picture that giving a large imagination space from a small angle of daily life. And maybe too small to see the details. Overall, it's a peaceful picture to read with good control of lights and shapes.   Posted: 06/15/2022 17:12:03

Nice photograph. My only suggestion would be to balance the light better, so that it's not so dark in back and so bright in front. Also, as others have mentioned, it would be helpful if the photo was larger.   Posted: 06/15/2022 21:50:42

An excellent picture. I like the composition, the colors and the light, which throws beautiful shadows. The dark background and the position of the pots give the image depth. A great still life shot.   Posted: 06/19/2022 09:13:02
