Scott’s Take

I really liked this image. It didn’t generate lots of response in our critique forum, but it is one of my favorites. I love the idea, the mood and the style of this shot. For me, it lacks only one thing – a bit more drama.

In my version, the image is much more abstract. We’re only allowed to see bits and pieces in my version. This leaves the viewer wanting more. The original gave just enough information that it was easy to figure out what this was. My change implies there’s something to be gained from holding back. Remember what you don’t include in a photo can be as important as what you do include.

In either event, there’s no right or wrong way to do this. It’s all just opinion. I thank the photographer who submitted the image and hope that more of you will contribute. I’ll post another image for you to critique Monday.
