Critique by martincrossbow Jul 3, 2010, 8:08:49 AM
Let me start off by saying that this critique is written on the basis of this being the artist's first attempt at silluetes.

The vision score is high. I have seena lot of silluetes in my time, but in terms of vision, this is one of the more successful attempts at that. This deviation has a fresh approach, and the artist successfully aviods many of the clichées. But naturally, not all of these can be avioded.

For the same reasons as mentioned about vision, the originality score ranks well.

As far as technique goes, this is a well executed photo. Yet, there are some minor things around the frame and the fingers' contact with the glass, which could have been more smooth. Small things, yes - but still worth mentioning.
In having a minimalist expression, this photo avoids having a clutter of details, which is only a good thing - especially considering the artist's limited experience with sillouetes.

Finally, to sum all of this up, there's the impact score.
The title, which is a very important factor, seems to have a clear connection with the photograph - it is a logical and yet very elegant choice.
The effortless interaction between the light and the dark sections of the photo is an excellent feature.
There are, off course, certain minor flaws, but for a start this is quite a good photograph.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
6 out of 6 deviants thought this was fair.

Amazing first attempt!! It's really gorgeous. The balance of white and black is perfect, I like how the background is actually slightly lighter than the frame so it does have many levels. The silhouette is clear and interesting. Keep it up, you started off strong!

Well it's worked, it's a lovely, almost ominous picture of almost some "other" person than the real person trying to come through from somewhere.

How beautiful. The softness of it reminds me of charcoal, the black frame around the silhouette is so lovely too. I like that the person is very blank... it has expression, but only in the purest sense... of wanting to touch and perhaps to escape (that, at least, is what I felt from it. or perhaps just a curiosity of the out of bounds...). We have no sense of their facial features, their true expression.. it all becomes very basic and reliant on body language, which seems somewhat primal. A great use of silhouette... I also really like the space that has been included in front of and to the left of the solhouette, like I said above it makes me think of all sorts of emotions and creates, I think, more of a story, or more implications for the figure. Basically, I really like it (haha!)
