photography and digital art
I like the color and composition, but the narrative implied by the title seems better served from a different angle of the table and chairs. You want to find where they seem to have fallen away from the center to capture the exit as the last moment of the event. This angle feels too clumped to me. I suppose that is a different approach to the leaving. Still, you know I am an ass.
…well, I like the emptiness of the picture. There also is a version with the chairs and tables at the center – but that looks too conventional.
I was fist thinking about setting the title in the past – but I think the present makes it more general and so I went for that.
I got you. I reject the centering as well. And the emptiness is great. But that makes me yearn the more for the chairs to feel isolated as the group is now so. What I meant is that the table– even off center– is the center of the event from which walking away happens. I was wondering if more feeling of awayness was available from a different angle. These shots are so often staged for effect. You work in found objects and I admire that. But that makes it more of a challenge for you to find the point of absolute kinetic energy to be revealed in a static moment captured. Man, who am I telling this to… you do you. It is all good.
Well, I love pictures that allow you to create your own narrative. A thoughtful title can only enhance that. Who’s walking away? The sitters at the table? The passers-by who don’t mind or don’t care or are embarrassed by the untidiness? Is the violent flinging away of the chairs by human agency or natural?
Oh, and I like the composition too: the off-centre placement of the furniture leaves a space to the right in which to place the possible action that a narrative implies. A very arresting image.
Thank you both for your criticism.
Good or bad, I think it always gives you a chance to slowly enhance your work.
Or ran away, by the looks of things 😉
Thank you, Hansi!
I hear waves … and silence …
…yes. I think off-season beach resorts have a great and calming atmosphere.
May be a party that abruptly ended for some reason!
Yes, there are a lot of possibilities that could have happened…
I really like this photograph-the composition and color-and the story possibilities-wonderful!
Looks like the end of the season. Nice shot!
Thank you for the compliment.
Fun shot and title (I was scrolling through your posts, always a fun title, great!) … but this one reminded me of an alike shot I made http://maxqubit.wordpress.com/2012/09/28/the-pancakes-were-delicious/ 😉
Thank you for the compliment – and for pointing out your post – I liked it a lot.
Thoughtful click. It’s the kind of image that makes you think.
…yes, I liked this as well – there are so many possibilities how it could have come to this…
