Photo Scavenger Hunt w/Image Review

Circular. I think the strongest element of this photo is the play between light and dark. The abstract form. 2) I think the most distracting element of this photo is some of the details in the painted metal drag the eye away from the focus.

    I generally do not find perfectly centered images to be as powerful as they could be, so I did an experiment -- As I block out portions of this image with my hands, I see only a portion of the item, and to me that is more interesting as it begs my mind to go further in to the picture to find out what is there. Having said that, however, one of my Distracting Element comments on my circular image is that I think the picture could use a little more of the object in the frame, so who can tell?

    Strongest Element: The symmetry. I like that it is centered, although not a typical thing I'm drawn to, but the fact that the lines leading into the center meander a bit before landing there I find interesting! Distracting: That little hair or whatever just about 11 o'clock in the center. Easy Photoshop. :) It catches the light just enough to be bothersome!

    I agree with Bill - changing the framing may help what is a little ordinary be extraordinary. In this case you included a bit of detail of depth behind the grid. That small gray highlight helps give a little mystery to the image.

    Strength: The bold lines, but I would bump up the contrast and maybe move the inner circle a bit off center.

    Strength - the clean lines and the monochromatic of the pictures. Distracting - even though the circle is in the middle - it is not truly symmetrical (the upper parts are bigger than the lower ones) which creates a visual struggle. I would crop it to be completely symmetrical (if that is the effect you were after)
