Day 104: Critique of a photo!

DSC_0886.jpg

Day 104: Today I am going to critique my own photo! This is a photo shot from a bridge a few days ago with my 85mm f1.8 Nikon lens. We are still in the throws of winter here, unfortunately! I am so ready for spring! At the University of Alaska Anchorage I took film and digital photography courses. In both courses we showed our work and the class was to critique our work, both positive and negative. I am going to critique this photo as I would have in class, except it will be of my own work.

  1. Composition is good as it is layered, interesting and the different layers are divided into thirds, which lends itself to the Rule of Thirds.
  2. I could have cropped the dark colored area on the upper right side of the image, one’s eye is drawn to that and thus slightly distracting.
  3. The different textures in this photo make this image more interesting.
  4. The fact that this image is monochromatic showcases the texture better than if it were in color.
  5. The white vertical strip of ice is eye catching and is slightly off center and helps to draw the eye into the image.
  6. There is good contrast in this image.
  7. There is good sharpness in this image, which causes the eye to look closer at it.

I would really like to hear your comments about this abstract monochromatic image! Good or bad.

LIKE or COMMENT. Thanks!
