I posted this picture on Facebook, and of course, I thought it was pretty cool. It may be because I didn't post it during Facebook prime hours, or it may be because the set may be confusing, but it didn't get much attention.

C&C on what I can do better next time I post something like this?

it's very dark... is it a triptych? I see a trunk of a car with a tiny man looking at the ground on the left and something coming out of the ass of the guy opening the trunk on the right.. :/...

altogether too dark and too messy, there's no real seperation between the pics and hard to discern what's in them.

I'd take the image of the man on the left, which has some decent lighting, blow that up (assuming there's enough detail in the original image) and scrap the rest...

Very dark. I only really see tail lights. Is your monitor calibrated? If it has some super bright setting, it will appear dark everywhere else.

I'm completely lost at what I'm looking at here. Aside from being very dark, it's hard to make out what you were wanting the viewer to see and feel. Images like this will garner very limited responses because, well, they simply don't know what to respond to. Start by adding some light, give us some detail to see and then we can better C&C your shot.


Some moments are too amazing to be ruined with words.

My eyes searched but never found the subject so I simply lost interest.

I see 3 images within. Looks like: one is a guy standing at a trunk, a guy 's profile, and possibly an image as if someone was looking out of the trunk.

I am guessing your monitor is far too bright because these are unintelligible; all I can make out at first glance is one face; the rest involves squinting and aggravation.

Yes, that is what I was going for!

I posted it in a rush, which I guess I shouldn't have done.. My laptop is on the highest brightness setting when I edit pictures. Should this change?

Thanks for all the feedback, guys! I will definitely take note.

I win, I win! Interesting concept. Images were just too dark to complete what I think you were going for. Kind of reminds me of the shots some have posted here that resemble kidnapped individuals.

bw!


No, I never claimed to be outstanding in the field of photography. I said I was out standing in the field taking photos.

Is there a way for me to calibrate this on my laptop? A lot of my pictures are very low light :/
