Wheel

Contributed by T Ricchetti

I took this picture at the Botanical gardens in Birmingham. I had a couple of flower pictures that turned out, but the HDR pictures of the desert green house where the best. I think this is the better photo out of the three HDR that I did.

I really like the setting of the photo in the desert it sets off a great mood. I also really like how the cactus looks, the angles in which they are rocking make them look very digital and its a really cool effect. SPHS-AR

i like the shadows in this picture and how they lead your eye around the picture. I also like the color of the cacti in the picture and how they very in size and shape.I like the wheel in the center of the picture and how it gives your eye a place to rest.

This is an interesting subject for a photograph but it works. The wheel is at the center-top of the picture with the cacti surrounding it as if they are watching and listening to it. The western desert feel of the photo also adds some uniqueness to the composition and subject of the photo.

really like this photo. It is almost like a landscape in a room, which is what makes this photo so unique. I have not been to the Botanical Gardens in forever. I would have like to get more of the window near the top. Overall though, this is a good photo.

This photo really caught my eye! At first I thought it was photoshopped (really well), then I realized it wasn't. Everything about this photo is really great. The lines of the shadows bring your eyes all over the photo. The plants and their colors stand out really well and the wheel is just random, but cool. :) You did really great with this. Only thing that bothers me is the angle of the window lines. Sadly, you would have to take away from the photo to get rid of it, so I can understand why you would leave it. Great job! :)

Good work on this shot Tyler! I really love the color scheme. The sporadic positioning of the cacti really bring movement into the work. The shadows create repetition and unify the work from top to bottom because the pattern creates line work in the dirt like the lines on the back wall.

This photo gives a mysterious “western” type vibe which is really neat. I red looking dirt along with the cacti and the old rusty wagon wheel all add to the shot.
I like how you can see where the natural sunlight is coming from and the shadows on the dirt give the viewer extra things to look at. The orange fading on the cement wall adds to the color in the shot too. Great idea for a shot.

This is an interesting photo. The colors are really nice. However, there are a lot of distractions in the photo; I would have liked it more if you focused in on a main subject instead of many. The wheel by itself would have been awesome without the cacti. I like the lighting a lot though. Its cool how it reflects off the ground from the windows.

This image is pretty cool. The colors are really brought out by the sand and rust. The cactus feel a little blurry, but i'm not sure how that could really be fixed. Overall nice image

this is a very interesting photo. I always love the way and HDR looks but this photo could be a bit better. You should rotate the photo a little bit to the left because it looks slanted a bit. I do love the detail of the cactus plants. One more thing you should do is crop it so that the wheel isn't in the dead center. I would probably crop it over to the left. its up to you. Over all its a decent HDR.

I like how this shot has various shapes and has a lot to look at. Also, I enjoy how the bars of the window reflect onto the ground. You did a very good job with HDR on this photograph, and how your photo shows off the texture of the cacti. This has a really cool theme of a desert-like setting.
