Eh, probably not done yet. But I talk way too much about everyone else's work as if I know what I'm talking about, without showing nearly enough of my own. So here's something.

Yes you are right it is "something", exactly what you are trying to achieve with shot is a bit of a puzzle to me, but .... hey we are all different :)

The circular thing you have pasted into the middle of the cog is off centre, try centering it up a bit and softening the edges of the circle, also the shot is a bit over exposed on the right hand side.
As for the bits of sticky tape well I'm not sure why they are there but I don't think they add much to the picture.

Perhaps you could explain your idea so that we can all understand your objective.

I just have to know the "why" of the masking tape bits?


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

lol...That's an understatement, given the feedback I've gotten over the last few years.

Anyway, I disagree about the centering. I tried it positioned differently, it didn't work.

I totally agree about the softening and the exposure matching. I agree...it needs more work.

As far as the tape is concerned, that relates to the whole "not finished" comment. I'm aware of that issue, I'm aware that the tape doesn't work right now, I'm aware that the photo is not finished. You need not be concerned with that (since there's no context by which it would mean anything to you). You are certainly entitled to concern yourself with that if you like (since the image is the image), but the only honest answer I can give at this point is "it's not done yet". The bottom line is that you've given me some valuable feedback on a work in progress.

So, thanks.

I think this is a very creative piece. One thing to note. In the eye high key is more powerful than a target. In this image the eye will travel out of frame to the right (due to high key) even as the target (the sprocket window) holds the observers attention. Once this attention lapses I am led to a softer high key mass to the right which is not as entertaining as the target. I think you can still project a sense of direction of light while maintaining balance in the frame. A slight edge vignette all around would keep the eye in the frame.

Is this all "cut and paste" in Photoshop or is this a photo of a "work in progress" piece of wooden fence with additional elements on it. In other words: did you Photoshop the sticky tape in or is it "real".

If it is just Photoshop then it is a matter of taste wether you like it or not how things are pasted together. If it is a real world photo other technical elements come into the equation. So: I wonder...???

This looks like a bad photo that has had other bits pasted in randomly for no apparent reason.

I think that if a photo needs all this "explanation" of what one is supposed to see, and most do not, something is missing.;)
