Sky Ribbons

I just felt like introducing a bit of colour, was thinking almost  abstract.  What do you think?  Hit or Miss?

Challenge II - "Shadow" closing date is the end of the month.
Brief is simple, the focal point of the shot has to be a shadow.  I don't want to any pet's called Shadow or a stack of money won on a horse called Shadow...pure and simple it has to be a shadow based shot.  The reason I have set this as the challenge is that quite often we are distracted by the solid subject, whether it be a person or a lamp or chair and quite often we overlook the shadow it has created in either bright sunlight or even strong light.  It can make a interesting composition when considered.

Relevance and Creativity
Lovely lovely lovely…I have to make a decision when reviewing some images as it’s hard to split images that have been created/composed with subjects that have been seen and then taken. I hope that makes sense? I like this a lot so I’ll give it a 9, strong shadow that compliments the original subject.

Overall impact
It definitely has the wow factor. Clear crisp lines that as I’ve said compliment the original railings and the patterns on the floor are ideally placed as well. Scores 9

Composition
It’s very strong compositionally but I’ve seen a couple of things that don’t quite sit right with me in there. First is the decorative top to the railing, the extra high bit, has been clipped at the frame edge. It would have been nice to have a little bit more space around it. The second thing is that the railing at the top of the frame, the other side of the path, is a nice complimentary shape and would frame the path but it’s not been given much space. The route of the railing edge shadow has created a flowing line up the path and out of the top of the frame, just needed a little more space where the eye is led out. Scores a 7

Quality of image
Just a little bit bright at the top of the frame where you appear to have lost a little control of the exposure. 8

Total: 33/40

Wonderfully bright and colourful. It's a hit as far as I'm concerned anyway.

bullseye simon. very nice
Oh wow! Lovely.
lovely colours and perspective. but I think the shot is a bit out of focus isn't it?
BeakerSt: I see what you mean. It's because the yellow banner is in focus and the depth of field makes the ones in front and behind more and more out of focus. smile
I believe that if what you tried were to give shining colors you file. You have obtained it.! smile
