Well, I took this when I needed to do something a few months ago because I didn't have any thing to do and I just wanted to photograph something. I decorate my apartment with my latest photographs. I have wanted to photograph characteristics of my apartment and then make a gallery of my apartment in my apartment.

hey matt.

haven't seen you round these parts for a while. good to have you back!

i like this one, but IMHO, i feel that the crop is a bit tight to the door bell.

i like tight dof shots, and would like to see a bit of the door itself fading away.

any chance that you have a few more of this one stashed away?

I sincerely hope for you that you are more successful with your college studies than with photography...

wow, that was a harsh and unnecessary comment! i kind of like the idea of photographing the things around your apartment and then hanging them as art in your apartment. it is clever and fun....like kramer making a coffee table book about coffee tables .

Hi Matt,

I think that the shot would work better if the bell was more on a third, and I agree with Scot's comment that the door fading away would add something. Like the idea, though.

(oh, and ignore driliagor's inane and utterly rude comment - that's not a critique that is an insult)

Best,

-B

I strongly suggest that you read this forum's Guidelines before posting here again.

If you can't adhere to them, then don't post.

Quote:
1. Be Nice
No matter how bad you think something posted actually is, do not flame or deride the author. Many here are interested in improving their style and mechanics, and are far from perfect. If you encounter a post for which you can offer constructive advice, do critique.

2. Be Honest
If you do not like an image posted, say so. But also remember to say why you do not like the image, and if you can, explain how you think it might be improved.

3. Be Constructive
Critiques should always be constructive, i.e., giving your ideas at how you think things could be improved. If you cannot give a constructive critique, please refrain from posting negative comments. If you like an image, say so & say why you liked it.

4. Be Concise
Please post only one image per thread...this will allow each image to be judged on it's own merits and keeps the thread on topic. A critique which picks apart every detail of the image posted had better be worth the time reading it.

5. Be Respectful
You may find the occasional "something bothers me about the mouth" (or similar) notice in a post. If you encounter it, please respect it and focus your critique on that particular part of the image. Also, please refrain from "hijacking" threads by including your own images for critique...if you are unsure, start a new thread.

6. Keep Netiquette In Mind
All posts on Steves Forums are expected to be civil. If you can't behave in an adult manner, perhaps you should not post at all.

7. Be Considerate
Even the worst posts deserve some sort of feedback. This Forum is for those that want to improve their skills. In order to do so, they need good, constructive critiques. There are a lot of people here who have different levels of skills and different skills altogether. Some may choose to shoot in a style that is purly edited by the camera, while others may be Photoshop Gurus...keep your mind open or don't post.

8. Be Patient
When you post an image, don't expect instant feedback. We are an International group & some people are asleep (or at work) when you hit the send button. Give people a chance to think about their ideas before they respond.

9. Be Forgiving
Many a post is made hastily (so that boss does not see, or spouse does not see, or author does not fall asleep or whatever). Be forgiving of obvious mistakes. There are many people here who are not native speakers of English. Please respect that they are doing their best to express themselves fluently. Be aware that a certain amount of good-natured gigging is likely to happen. Do not take puns personally.

The idea is appealing, but the doorbell lacks "something" and I can't quite put my finger on it. I don't know whether it's the position in the pic, (relative to the edges) or what. I do like the subject tho, and the idea behind it.
