Photo Scavenger Hunt w/Image Review

"interaction" I think the strongest element of this photo is the broken form on the right side of the photo leads the eye to the main focal point of the photo. The most distracting element of this photo is the bird is a bit low in the photo.

    At first I was confused, as the kids do not seem to be interacting with each other. I had to look harder to see that they are looking at the bird. Is that where you see the interaction -- between the children and the bird? How did you phrase the question this afternoon -- often you ask yourself when you are making a photograph, what is the <story you are trying to convey?> or something like that.

    Strongest: The foreground/background relationship- you've stacked depths of perspective well. Distracting- The distance b/t the intended interaction is a bit distant. Also- the frame could have been nice and crisply straight-which would have allowed the diagonals to point to a variety of subject matter, but instead it appears a bit as though the fence is falling on the girls! LOL

    Carmel, in the 'old days' in the darkroom we would 'dodge' the bird create a lighter area (halo) during printing to attract the viewer's attention. I think you can do that in photo-shop. If you crop out the girl on the left it may be a much stronger photo.

    Strength: The child with the pacificer has a stare that leads to the bird. Distracting: The bird almost seems stuck under the gate, but we can't control everything. I would like to see something--other than flotsam--in the middle of white part of the water.

    I agree with others - I would have reduce the exposure on the water part, increase the exposure on the bird and crop out the second girl. There are too many competing areas for attention and I would like to have highlight the girl and the bird.
