Re: balconies


This image does not meet my understanding of the idea behind abstract art but is certainly an interesting architectural shot,

Re: balconies


If this was my image I would crop in tighter and control the perspective a little, but not too much. Also give the contrast a little boost in the mid tones to add some impact, just a thought,

Alan

Re: balconies


I agree with Alan here, a good image,but personally I would also be tempted to crop it tighter ,perhaps square, which would reduce the amount of balcony's on the eye, and ,as suggested, boost the contrast a tad.

Re: balconies


thanks for the comments.

norman: i'm still uncertain what constitutes an abstract and checking on-line there doesn't seem to be a standard that everyone agrees with. maybe the photographic world needs to create a new sub-definition solely for patterns. having written that, i think maybe i should have put this image in the architecture section.

alan and tim: thanks for the pointers, i'll have another try with a square shape and more contrast.

Re: balconies


Yes, I know all tastes differ, but this works for me personally, like it .
I think it falls between abstract and architecture, well there's a new genre, "Abstract Architecture" emoticon

Re: balconies


The square crop works and the contrast boost has added some impact, but for me the perspective from the center to the right hand side is a bit, leaning in, if you see what i mean. It wouldn't take much to fix this, i don't know what editing program you use but most have some form of perspective control.
Regards,
Alan
