Thumb-up Thumb-up    from moonpie/Eric (2,803) Send mail to this user on January 28, 2004 1:11:16 PM CST (1) Early critique

Great concept, superb composition, alhtough I wish the whole tire was in the frame. Darn shame its so grainy and borken up, the image should be smaller.

I really like the idea here but it falls apart in the execution. I don't mind the car blurry as it is moving but the rest of the image must be sharp to work here. I also think if it were possible that having the flower not centered would make a stronger image. If it's possible I think you should shoot on this theme.

Why didn't you rate it +1 (Overall good effort but in need of improvement)? -1 means uninteresting... It would look better if 25% would be cropped from right, I will do that and upload in 3 days. Adding saturation took off sharpness, the flower became a bit blurry. Asphalt looks bad (unreal etc) if too sharp.

Hi Tomi, while I do find it interesting I cannot say it is an overall good effort because the execution is so poor.

What would you have given to thumbnail? +1 or +2? Thumbnail doesn't show unsharpness, but it shows that flower is in center.. At least you selected it out of 50 thumbnails, and critiqued it. I don't know did you click it to tell how great it is, just a little cropping from right and it would be +2 (I noticed that you give only very little +3, so even +2 from you is harder to get than +3 from most of photosig users), but then noticed it is also unsharp, and was disappointed that actually it isn't such a good photo. Do not say that execution is poor, if only sharpness & cropping are poor. Because execution means also colors, saturation, brightness, contrast, zooming/distance, and maybe angle also.. This was taken in a hurry inside a car, before the light turned green.

Hmm +1 as is, +2 if it wasn't centered and the tire was still in the frame.

OK I try to upload +2 version of this, when I have the chance.
