LORD stop the beating of my heart! I have to try this when I get home. I would have liked to see more but you cropped it off

author says:

Thanks (cropped it like that on purpose)

still26 says:

I thought so, but why? What was your reason for doing so?

(174 days ago)


author says:

Yeah, they're good. But don't put too much honey (like in the picture ). I cropped it like that because a normal crop would just be a picture of a plate of food, but by cutting off a little it creates dissonance and makes you look longer, with your brain wanting completion.

I appreciate you telling me that ....although I do not agree it has made me think! (a good thing for a change).

author says:

Actually, it did... thus the initial question. I didn't mean people would sit and consciously contemplate about it for hours (or even minutes, or seconds). But the mind decodes data by looking for patterns it has seen before. If it's something completely new, it tries to manage meaning and make it make sense (not always successfully). If it's something kind of familiar (like a plate of food) but doesn't easily fit, it wonders, get's agitated, or whatever, making it ask, "I wonder why it doesn't do X?"

Yes, I understand however the reason why my brain doesn't calibrate the image is quite basic. There is within this photo a visual weight imbalance, meaning everything is to the right (patterns and all) and it is outside of the frame making me think it will tip right out and all those patterns on the edge just take my eye right out of the photo.

In our photography courses, our prof once told us to worry when NOBODY mentions a thing about your picture. So, your photo generated thought and discussion and I thank you for that, I just wish this kind of exchange would happen more often on this site.

still26 says:

Dang......I meant to give you 5 thumbs up and forgot. I will do this on another of your photos OK?!

author says:

That's fine, thanks... I don't really care about thumbs ups.

still26 says:

Why not?

author says:

Another question might be - why?

still26 says:

Why...because it shows appreciation on my part for your critique and positive insights, that's why....no?

Zizounai says:

Thanks you 2 for all this, as it is the most interresting conversation I've read here for a long time, and congrats for your wins

author says:

But you already showed appreciation above. (and, thanks, Zizounai)

still26 says:

Awwww that is a cop out

author says:

Not really. I told you that I really don't care about Thumbs ups. You just didn't believe me.
