Thinking Critically about Photographs

Critique 12

Critique 12 Edit

  This is another critique that isn't. This is a fabulous shot. So let's learn from it.

  1. The lighting is nice. It has a gentle dance of light and shadow. Nothing seriously distracts your eye from where it shouldn't be.
  2. Well places accent lighting to almost humanize the car. It makes me think twice about going out into the woods at dusk.
  3. It tells a story with strong composition. Your eye goes right to the open "mouth" then starts to take in the other bits of the scene.
  4. Nothing about this is even or straight. The car is at a kilter (tilted) which adds to the drama of the image.
