I realise that this is a re-post, but I thought I'd see how my photos stand up against the "serious feedback and constructive criticism" of The Crucible.

(Sorry if some of these are slightly too big for your browser window.)

I like the first and last one best.  In the first, it looks like he/she's jumping into the unknown.  His/her feet really don't do anything for me in the second picture.  I like the lighting of the third one.  I can't tell if the person is facing me or turned away (which makes it mysterious).  The last one is great because of what he/she is writing.  It seems like all work and no play turned Jack into clay.

wow.  i absolutely love the textures in these pieces.  1 is great.  3 is brilliant.  5 is amazing.  2--good lighting, the reflection adds a depth to it.  i like it.  (but there is a tie between 3 and 5 for my favorite.)  wonderful work.

Haha!

I love these pictures. They're Fabulous!

Get them printed in BIG, now. Go to Jessops at Ponds Forge Tram stop, they're doing a half price deal now -about £10 for an A2 sized print.


And then make a set of them and sit them at a table playing poker.

hey there, I really like the series of images you've got here!

your eye for lighting is superb, especially in the last image, but I think that the composition in some of the pictures (particularly 1 and 3) could be improved.

perhaps the third image seems to stick out more as it's in colour, usually a series is more powerful when it has consistancy, not always the case I know but I feel that in this area it is quite valid.

another point though this is purely a style feature more than anything is to increase the contrast in the last image, as you can see in image 1 and 2 there is a great contrast between brilliant white and utter darkness, however in the final picture the midtones seem to snap the focus away from the imagery.

it'd be great if you could tell me what you think Smiley

i love the last photograph! i don't know what possessed you to take photographs of clay models,, i feel it is slightely psychotic. but the last one is definately a favourite. i like your use of chiaroscuro in that one.

Mundane typical drivel via a lense.

Sorry, but everyone does it. And it's not something I ever did like either.

Yes they may be interesting angles, and good contrast between light and dark, and it's a clay type figure... but it's been done. It's not interesting anymore.

To me, it never really was in the first place....

We want to produce work we are satisfied with and learn until our hearts explode.

This is what I call double standards. Yes?

No. It's not.

Do what you enjoy, but it doesn't mean I have to like it.

Agree with Vixen about the textures and I like the cepia/monotone too... first and last are best ...I notice your tableau in the final one is based on the Jack Nicholson " The Shining" film ...hehehehe....I 've actually got a mannequin doll like that...mine appeared in a production of Macbeth I directed ..witches took it from cauldron and used it as a voodoo doll on Macbeth ... we had the actor correspondingly bending and shaking as witches twisted and tortured it !!!
