On Pegu #8 in the Discussion challenge: Off Centered Subject challenge (19 comments in total)

To santamonica812 : IMO, there are 3 off centered subjects (different parts of the window) and two negative spaces segregated by the light beam.

I'm not sure it would be better, but it might be cropped a bit from the right and top (just leaving visible narrow band of the plant) and from the left by low end of the big dark piece of the plant.

Like the photo. IMO, bluring the backgrouond will remove the contrast between the girl's figure and the industrial noise. Possibly it's not the main idea of the image, but it gives additional dimention.

On mooring lines & anchors in the Discussion challenge: Off Centered Subject challenge (11 comments in total)

IMO - the center of gravity in the image lies on the point of interception of the lines. Somewhere above the visible ship's part. At least my eyes are coming there:) So (again - IMO) - it is well and unusual off centered photo. Absence of negative space may be considered derivative of negative space:)

Should the fly sits on the right bottom corner (just opposit the flower reflection) it would be more interesting composition. But - who is the Lord of the Flies?

IMO - too much contrast.

Funny:) The diagonal curve well splits the composition on two parts. Like Yin and yang:)

Very simple and clear image, giving feeling of player's concentration.

On Flay away from the center in the Discussion challenge: Off Centered Subject challenge (8 comments in total)

I'd add a bit more space above the bird to give it freedom.

If the scene is not contained flowers on the right side, it would be even better.

I really like the scene and the movement of the hands.
The little bright spot in the background should be erased.
The front ball takes too much space. I would try to show only half of it

I like this photo as it holds my interest in whether he keeps his balance or not. I would shift the image a bit to the right to reduce the empty space on the left.

excellent!
Is there sufficient surrounding to move person and second ball to thirds positions?
Remove the white speck in the background and we're done!
Very well done - I know it's a difficult light situation (no chance to freeze the hand movement).

This is a very nice shot. I like all about it, with the exception of the bright spot, get rid of it and you have a winner.

I love the composition, and would not change it.

Great use of negative space. I think the slight details in the right-side shadows (and the one white detail, to the right of the human subject) are very important, as solid black is not a very interesting negative space. Therefore, I would not clone out that white detail, although I might tone down its brightness a bit.

Since this challenge focuses (heh) on negative space, I would not crop out the left side.

I really like this picture. I think I would keep the light in the audience as it is the evidence the audience is there without showing us the audience. this picture is really interesting, because the subject is a clown but it does not evoke a humorous response from me instead I feel the photo displays the art, hard work, talent and focus a clown must have while under the spotlight
