Hi Olafs,

You know I'm a big fan of your style, specially the "There" series... But this one I feel is not up to par with your previous images. It seems to me that I have taken far too many similar shots myself when photographing lunches and dinner parties at home and aimed at the wrong object for exposure. For me, these shots were mistakes.

I went as far as look at this picture within the context of your "there" series on your website and... nope. This image is not as strong as all your others which I find convey a much stronger message.

wonder if a tighter crop might help? there is nothing of interest on the right and the bottom of the frame. doing so would move the subject out to the rule of thirds area.

Thank you so much for very interesting responses :]

Galix... I guess you're right. This is the moment, when we were preparing for a dinner, where all our parents would be together, thus I actually like the moment and the message. But I have to agree - from actual visual point of view, this image is pretty generic. I am not quite sure what do you mean by

aimed at the wrong object for exposure

Are you talking about "taking images of dinners" or from technical standpoint. If we talk about technical side of things, then this image is made exactly as intended :]


Brisket, about crop. Yeah, I tried to crop some of it, but I really need that empty blanket space and window as well, so, if I want to stay on original ratio, I cannot crop any tighter :]

Good enough for a gallery- or evidence of neglect. Take your pick.

Olafs,

The exposure I was referring to is as if you aimed at the window, which is very bright, to capture the exposure setting and then re-aimed at something much darker inside the house, thus creating the strong shadows.

In my previous post, I failed to mention that although I don't quite like the picture, it does convey a message of a missing party and guests, with lots of utensils not properly placed, as if the party had been cancelled at the last minute. Sadness and emptiness do cross my mind when I look at your picture.
