1. in what area is critique to be sought?
composition in terms of cropping
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
i want the viewer to feel the contrast between hope and despair, just like the contrast between light and dark. we wont know what is light without the presence of darkness and vice versa. so if we are going through tough times, we should embrace them in order to appreciate the good times in life better.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
i took this picture in a brightly lit room with normal exposure, then increased the contrast and saturation, decreased the brightness and exposure in pp to give the idea that it was taken in a dark environment.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
i think the composition is quite balanced. however i also think that different ways of cropping can bring out different perspectives which i am unsure of.
thanks in advance for c&c, please do not hold back or hesitate in your constructive criticisms!
