About the Image(s)

Admittedly I have not been able to get out much to shoot. I took this back in March on a group photo walk. I was intrigued by the surreal nature of the graffiti painted everywhere. It is SOOC. I shot it with my Nikon D7000 and a 60mm macro lens. I would love to hear your thoughts. More contrast maybe?

If you hadn't mentioned it, I don't think I would have guessed is was graffiti. Since the main point of interest is the switch, maybe a crop or vignette might help to maintain a viewers focus on the switch. The original artist really created a lot of detail and you capture it well.   Posted: 07/13/2021 11:29:54

The first thing that drew my attention was the colors in this image. They are very pleasing and made me want to take a deeper look. The diagonal lines add tension and interest. I agree with Bob, that a vignette would work well to keep the viewers' eye on your focal point and not draw to the outside edges since they is now so bright.   Posted: 07/17/2021 10:21:50

What an unusual and interesting image. The colors drew me in to see what the picture was. Clever title; "Sandwiched In" could also fit. I also like that you did not straighten the image. A subtle vignette would also help.   Posted: 07/18/2021 15:01:06

Very nice, I like the colors, I also think a small vignette would help, also maybe a bit more contrast or texture would help.   Posted: 07/20/2021 09:46:57

Hi Jessica. A very interesting image - it really grabs attention. You've captured the details and the colours really well.
I like the colours as they are. I would probably select the main object and experiment with that and the background separately. A vignette may help, but I don't think you need to do much to this.   Posted: 07/20/2021 16:12:41
