I quite like this shot because of how the light plays on the glass and alters the colours. I wonder whether it is too busy and I am not sure about the composition. Comments appreciated as always . . .

I would start off by rotating the image so that the panels of the front glass are horizontal on the frame and probably crop out the sidewall on the bottom. Possibly do something about the light fixture top left depending on how it looked after the first two edits. I don't think it is too busy but needs a little structural recomposition. Could be a keeper, we'll see.

And now for my last critique... ( at least for a while)


While this is an interesting concept and definitely worth the trial, this image falls a little short of providing a focal point.

I find the image too noisy in terms of intersecting lines. The idea of viewing the clouds thrugh two sets of windows is appealing but the lines fail to bring the viewer to that point of interest.

Cropping the image may help but finding appropriate lines at which to frame which do not conflict with harshly with the lines of the buildings infrastructure will be very difficult.

Overall... interesting subject matter... good attempt...

Goodbye for now.... when this tiring mess settles down and serious critiquing returns, I will too.

Thanks to those of you that have shared images, provided valued time writing thoughtful critiques, or just lurked around and enjoyed the pretty pictures.... Cheers and good night
:-):-)

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Syd,

Have to say I'm not a big fan of this one - it seems somewhat uninspiring, and too busy so that my eyes can't decide where to settle. Maybe a close crop might work better, in an abstract sort of way?

Best,

-Ben

I'm inclined to agree with the above. It doesn't quite work as I hoped it would. I just needed to hear it I guess.

Thanks all for commenting.

Sorry Syd, I don't think this one really works. It would be a lot better I think without the front frame cluttering up the shot and disturbing the diagonals of the roof trusses. Could be very interesting from a different angle sans the front square frame and in B&W perhaps?
