The Snake Tips

Thinking Critically about Photographs

Critique 30


When I first saw this image the fact the trunk lock was dead center disturbed me for a bit. The more I look at it and with a few tweaks I was ok with it. I think the image is a little washed out. The composition with the pine straw and rusty bits is nice. I would have like to have seen more shadows playing across it. They give a little depth and would add a little contrast to it.

I adjusted some of the settings (blacks, white, contrast, clarity and sharpened it) to yield the image you see below. In my opinion it gives it a little more depth.
