Lol! Good one Chris!:smile:We are watching you watching the person watching the watcher. Whew, watch out.
Lynn, you are 100% correctomundo on these! It would seem that these fall into the "close but no cigar" category! :smile: By the way that's a long hallway in an old YMCA building that now houses artists' studios. The reflection is that of the window and that's the hallway floor. I think that these images will go into my "also ran" files. Thanks for the input!I prefer 'Part I', mostly because of the reflection on the table adds another dimension. But then again the second person in 'Part II' adds mystery to the scene... Both are dramatic and captivating.
But you really should wash your window!
R-i-i-g-h-t! That being said I'm thinking these don't work as I originally previsualized them! Oh well, I can but try harder next time!I think that we ARE the second person in the first picture.
I don't know Chris as I'm not very good at analyzing my own images. It could be many things - composition, lack of a rim light on the main subject, dynamics, failed previsualization!Ray, what were your initial ideas for these that you do not see here. I see these photos falling right in with a couple others you have recently posted. Particularly Visitors, Exits and to an extent, Radical Light.
I'm looking forward to 'next time' - this 'dark and looking into the light' series is some of your most exciting work to date, and is quite inspiring to me!
That is what I suspected you were going for. Do you mind a little suggestion? Ok then: give more light to the window. To suggest something going on outside, you need only very minimal suggestion - you could possibly burn in the window to bring it out, even if overexposed by a couple more stops. I see nice rim lighting in the first one, but it's dim. A couple more stops would probably bring it right out.... lack of a rim light on the main subject ...
