Jim’s Critique

]im's13-8-13

I dislike to backtrack to a previous image, but since Im handing this in for Jim’s class CUVDIG401A, I thought I better take Jim’s suggestion into consideration. Jim suggested a white background, but the image is creme in tones instead of white. I tried white, but it just didn’t sit right. There are things that I would change about this image if I re-composed. I will consider these things on my future collage’s.

Willow Versions

I’m not really sure if this is a Willow tree, but it does remind me of the Willow plates that I used to eat off as a child. I think the ones from those days have become collectable in their sets. Anyway the tree is in the wetland area, not far from my house. The area is constantly under threat for road construction. While I know growth is a necessity, it may  be sad to see the area go. In the mean time the houses are reasonably cheap around the wetland due to the RTA restrictions. I say reasonably, this is Sydney after all.

The above is photographed on my 5D, and processed in LR and photoshop. The first image is the colours of the eve, pretty much as they were.

 

Family

Constantina and family at the beach. Thoughts spring to mind: Beauty is an illusion, it’s not even skin deep. ‘Beautiful’ is this family being there for one another. Constantina has been given six months to live after diabetes medication takes it’s toll.
Thank-you to Constantina and Irene for allowing me to photograph.
