great idea, but it doesn't quite work, IMO

avatar adeincyprus

it's on theme, but I have to agree, it doesn't work for me either.

Ok my friends, you know I'm open to constructive critism. Please tell me why it doesn't quite work for you? The photos that I chose to put together? The idea in general? Please! More info!!

avatar adeincyprus

For me, it is the photos themselves, I am not sure exactly what it is that turns me off it. The night shot has a harsh flash in it, and the day shot is against a boring background, with a nasty shadow across the lady's face, there is nothing to shout 'look at me'! not some of your best work author...........

It's a great idea, but the daytime background, is just plain boring, and while the face is a good fit, for me what really jars is the body, the shoulder in the daytime makes her look deformed.
Having said that, I feel a strong crop would improve the image.
I would crop so only 1/3 of the picture above the head is shown, crop the left side to just outside the grill on the road. and the daylight side to take up slightly more that 1/3 of the image. GL

And now taking another look at it, you're both right. Well! With that critique in mind (and it's much appreciated) I hope you held your votes so I can possibly find better photos.

Nice entry, over 200 votes on the old one. More votes than on any other photo, wonder if the votes are good or bad. This is why I don't like changing an entry. GL

author [banned] says:

Yeah, I know... Oh, well...

avatar adeincyprus

this is good................. it is a shame you couldn't have done something more with the other one, but never mind..............

author [banned] says:

Yeah, I never see her anymore, and the photos I had just didn't work for me.
