Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Re: love on the rocks

It's a 'Diamond' with a surface inclusion - so pour me a drink and I'll tell you some lies.

Serious and truthful mode -- I feel this one should have more immediate inpact than it does. The 'surface inculsion' (carving) of the rock just doesn't seem to 'sparkle' or grab and hold the attention as it might imho.

There's plenty texture in the rock and that's coming over ok but the main subject (the carving) doesn't seem to be prominent enough and that's a shame as you've got a great title for this one.

Perhaps it's because the background doesn't seem to do anything much to enhance or draw attention to the carving? Perhaps it might have been more striking from a different angle with mainly the rock in the frame? Maybe even a desaturated style of colour image or some use of colour to make the 'love on the rocks' shine out more?

I don't wanna sound negative because I think there's definitely some potential for a great shot of the carving. I just can't help feeling this particular shot doesn't do it the justice it deserves.

I'll crawl back under my own little stone now and listen to Neil.

I love B&W and this one tells a nice story about the people that were there.
