42

Contributed by L Hooks

I took this photo for the circles assignment. It is of a random metal container I found at home. It is somewhat rustic, and I thought it was interesting. I cropped it and adjusted the brightness/contrast, curves, and did a color adjustment.

While I really like this picture I wish that the 42 was a little more in focus. I really like the way the light hits the piece, adding to the texture of the container and making it look old.

This is a really interesting photo. You used the rule of thirds and it makes it look great. Also, the colors are cool it makes me think of like the Saw movies because its dark with just a little bit light and it has a brown tint to it. I know this was for the circles assignment but i really like how the circles add to this image especially how the circles at the top aren't in focus but the circles in the middle and the bottom are in focus it makes it look awesome

I like that the writing around the number is blurred, but you can see the number perfectly. I think the picture looks good and adjusting the things you did was a good idea.

The circles that are in focus in this shot do not really work as a subject. The number is the first thing the eye is drawn to in this shot because it is different, but it’s out of focus and part of it is out of the frame.
I like how the photo is at an angle, not straight on, but I think you could take that farther and angle the shot to show even more rows of circles, which would emphasize the narrow depth of field.
I like the feel of this; it definitely has a rustic look. This is probably a result of the sharp focus, which highlights the texture of the container, although the bright spot of light distracts from this.

I like the lighting going from dark on top to light on bottom. I wish the focus was on the number a little bit more because it is the subject. I like the repetition of the circles and the number that stands out from them. I like this photo a lot and would only change the focus slightly. Good job!!!!

I LIKE THIS PICTURE BECAUSE IT HAS A SENSE OF TEXTURE THAT GIVES IT MORE PERSONALITY, BUT AT THE SAME TIME ITS BORING
