First of all thank you to all who voted for me, my vote went to
Wodem, A Tacky one
, sharp as a tack and met the brief spot on.
DD your right I was also concerned it didnt meet the brief however its only a small brush and it has meant alot to me within my work, Iwas taking a shot of staples untill deena put her photo in (great minds and all that).
Anyway hope you dont mind me voicing my opinnions on you entries this week!
. A great take on the theme and made me laugh. love the composition and the sharpness of the shot, if I had a small crit I would have liked to have seen a bit more contrast to give a bit more punch to the shot.
DD The fuse
: This was a contender, the shot was spot on theme and the focus was superb, I love how you used a background to reflect the fuse: Not sure about the composition I felt that you could have given a bit more space top left with a bit more of an angle so both ends could have been in the thirds. I would have used a new fuse and cloned out the peice of fibre on the Right of the fuse.
: Just seems to have a lot of noise in this picture and perhaps could have been a bit more creative in the angle that you shot the charger.
Deena: simply binding
: Great shot love how the focus runs from the left corner to the middle of the staples, great composition and nice lighting. Perhaps a differnt background colour could have made them jump out and be a bit more interesting to look at.
Twinnie: Lipstick love
: I adore this image I love the composition and the entire setup, perhaps you were thinking of me when you were doing it LOLI.
I guess it didnt get my vote cos it wasnt deep red , may Fav
Ogrst: Fallen Angel
: Nice image although you clipped the wing and the hand. Think you could have made more of this image with the backround perhaps being darker and the odd twinkle starburst. also it looks like you have a few dust spots on your sensor.
Wavemachine Tightley bound
. still dont know what this image is!! a shoe! a bag perhaps, however nice focus and nicely processed.
SieSmith – Pixels make pictures
Really clever idea of making the pixels the theme, but i guess the picture wasnt interesting enough to get a vote. I dont know how you did it but i think it was a clever idea.
wodm – A Tacky One
Checked the focus and it was as sharp as a tack, nice bright colour to catch my eye. Perhaps a few less drawing pins and a little more attention to composition may have drawn a few more votes.
These are only my observations and even if you dissagree with what i have said you have at least had another view on your image.
DD and kerbside I have notice a great improvement on your images and i can honestley say I think its down to you enetring these comps.
One last word , I have noticed there has not been much bumping to get the
poll to vote
on the first page, I think this is bad for the comp because seeing it there makes new members want to have a look and who knows even enter.
Will post my theme when I can think of one.
Live each day as your last, one day you will be right.
