Sweet and Sour
avatar still26
still26 says:

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.

A Quick Pick-Me-Up

still26 says:

Lovely, and they say you only retain 10 percent! I like the clarity and the background to this "pile". I'm writing to you from Vietnam and today we had a coffee with a 77 year old vet who fought in the "American War" (you call it the Vietnamese War). What a sad life he has had and 15 days ago he lost his 52 year old son to a traffic accident.

You don't have any books by Plato up in your pile, but as Plato said (or it could have been Socrates) ...."remember whomever you meet that they are fighting a private war!" (or something like that).

I know I know this isn't much of a photography critique but I just felt like writing this because of your photo!
