I'm not sure what kinds of comments the contributors of the last few images are looking for, if any. Are these posted to get critiques, or simply for the rest of us to appreciate, or something else?

About this next one: Behold the power of leading lines.

Critiques would be nice. :) I like those pictures that I took but I feel that they are somewhat empty.

Well sometimes "emptiness" is the subject. I find that many of my images reflect aloneness, and that has it's roots in my background.

For me, without that seat the landscape shot would be much less effective as the light is pretty flat on those distant hills and there is not much else to see, but the empty seat adds a different dimension...which will vary from viewer to viewer no doubt, but that's the way I saw it.

I like the strength of this shot OhLook...those leading lines really do work. How would it be in b&w? I think it would work really well.

Empty of what? Like, empty of excitement, or lacking a center of interest, or . . .

"Sleep" is one I don't understand. Maybe you wanted an abstract and didn't intend viewers to identify subject matter here. I like the palette, but the textures leave me unable to make out who's sleeping. Is this a person taking a nap with an animal? I see skin (I think) and fur (I think). Cannot identify any body parts, human or otherwise. The bow-tie shape of the light areas means the center is almost blank, something going on at both sides but not in the middle; and the central area is out of focus. Where am I supposed to look?

Your landscape with bench, I wouldn't call empty. Many landscapes in wild areas have a path starting at the lower margin that invites the viewer in for a walk. In this one, the meandering canyon bottom does the same thing. I can imagine going there.

Do you mean my shot? Okay, attached.

Elrey, no title, two photographers, one model, desert scenery: The two men are too close to the edges for me. I have to wonder why you cut so close to them.

ziemowit, no title, padlock, white wall: As usual, this is dramatic and contemplative. The black bits at and near the edges cause some nervousness. I assume you knew they would.

Sorry, Oh...I was in a rush and had just been looking at some of Elrey's work.

Anyway, I think that your builders look great in b&w...gives even more strength to those diagonals.

I cut so close because that's the original frame as far as width goes. I like them as buffers that keep my eyes inside the photo. To put more space between them and the edge of the frame would somehow lessen any tension I might want the photo to have.

Rainie Dib - the one with the person's back and hair, very nice light on the back. I think it could work really well in B#W as well. I would crop it more cinematic as the white blob at the top is taking attention away. Crop it 16x9 and it should look great. Rest of the stuff, not really feeling it. I'm trying to figure out why you took them and I'm coming up empty.
