Unfinished Moai by Dianne Arrigoni

September 2021 - Unfinished Moai

About the Image(s)

This is an image I took at the quarry on Easter Island where all the Moai were carved. These were unfinished or never delivered to their destination. The visitors hours for the sites were in the middle of the day and it was summer there so lighting was less than dramatic.

Hi Dianne! I will be honest, though the subject is important and intriguing, the composition does not reveal its importance: I suggest, the rails or fence-like structures take away from the Fine Art aspect that may have been exposed without these interferences. (I do not approve of Deleting artifacts in photographs and instead push photographers to pre-visualize and design the scene before triggering the shutter-release button).

As it relates to tone/exposure...I like it a lot! The grey overcast sky really compliments the subject and the grass.   Posted: 09/21/2021 08:40:37

Lance I agree the hand rails are distracting. This is just one of so many I took. I thought I would throw it out there. I have others I lie way better.   Posted: 09/27/2021 12:48:40
