Optima - XI

i regard this work 'prefabricated', relies more on aesthetics than the a feasible idea. for me, this was visually satisfying the emotively speaking, empty. though its not 'urban decay' in solid definition, it has various elements of decay blending in with (and equally standing in contrast with) the body which can scarcely be distinguished.

    It's a good one, but for me there is too much background. The view is irretated by that.
    Sorry!

    nice shot, trying too hard to justify it though. No need really, a photo should replace all words.
    I like it a lot, but it's not in my gallery.

    I'd prefer to jot down a single sentence, the name and let the viewer fill in the blanks. comparing to a kids portrait in the kindergarten, this portrait is not about the person. id get a dozen models with similar physical features, there is no way to tell which model is the one in this picture. thats what I meant. being a newbie to the group, sure I'll stick to my style once I get more recognition, after coming across so many people concerned with names and descriptions.

    There is a contradiction here. Portraying humans without visible features? ...blending in with... the body which can scarcely be distinguished?

    Well in that context is does not work for me. The body is very distinguished, and there are many 'visible features' here, too many to name.

    Nice shot, but not Gallery.
