nice image -- cropping out the clothes line at the bottom would be better IMHO

Very nice! I agree with Alan2641 on the clothesline.

author says:

I appreciate the comments. Interesting how subjective art(photography)is. I talked it over with a few friends and one of them said that the subtle existence of the clothesline and wires reminds you of the beautiful thing that is floating over a gigantic mess of wires, ropes and mayhem just above head level in the streets. Without that reminder you don't have the tension that is created by letting the viewer know that there is beauty above the mess. I'm new here so I'm not even sure if I can crop and resubmit. Probably not.

I agree with you that photography is very subjective and can understand your friends' point of view. From a purely visual/design point of view, the clothesline interferes with the flow of the photo. Just my thoughts and certainly wouldn't want to persuade you to adjust your view. However, you can make changes. Once you've edited the photo, simply go to your profile, click on "My Entries" and find this entry. Click on the "Replace Image" box and upload your edited image.

Hey, thanks for the feedback. Good to know I can make changes or replace the photo. I was afraid to touch it after it received votes because you'd have something different there after a vote was cast, sort of like "bait and switch."

Who knows who is right and who is wrong. Like you, I was about to crop it but then we started talking. My friend is also a designer so we had a lengthy esoteric discussion. In the end, I just left it as it was captured. Maybe that's more pure to the moment. The crop is what the camera had. In the old days before digital we rarely cropped because it was too expensive to make new prints. I think some photographers are lazier today and say, "don't worry, we'll fix that in Photoshop." Before Photoshop we had to say, "better worry about that crop, it will be hard to fix later." Who know's but thanks for the opinion...

Yes, I remember the old days and dark rooms, which I loved. You're absolutely right. Today, photo editing seems to have turned into a totally separate art form from photography itself. Hence, photography contests vs. Photoshop contests here. I used to be of the "pure" belief, and for the most part, keep my photos true. However, I've learned that a little tweak here and there can really enhance a photo. Technology....what's one to do?? The bottom line....stay true to yourself and your art! Happy shooting!
