Imageopolis Featured Photo Critique Hi Thilo,

This image reminded me of a photo by a Scott Somebody, who posted a photo of a silhouetted group of people admiring a fiery ball / setting sun through the glass windows of a London Museum (tate modern - I think) Awesome feel.

The comparison is easily made - the almost unreal combination of the people walking about freely in an under-water world - very cool.

The main differnece with the setting sun photo is that the shutterspeeds were undoubedly much slower here - which does show a bit in the edges around the silhouettes, and the motion blur of the fish.

Still, the poses of the people, looing around them in amazement are excellent, and contribute a large deal to the feel of this photo.

In the overall composition, I think the pano-format is very functional here - a pity the pano version is the same size as the one on this page - I'd love to see this one a bit bigger. Also, the clipped off people on the left and (much less so) right of the photo create a minor distraction IMHO

Basically, that's about all I have to say - scrolling back up, I do notice the four brighter spot lights - creating an even stronger surrealism, if not alienated feel to this photo. Very cool!

well done Thilo. if it's a critique you want: might crop out the far left figure.


Andre Denis Andre Denis   {K:66407} 11/21/2006
Very nice Thilo,

I think there is something sort of spiritual about this kind of image. People become mesmorized by the movement of the fish and gaze in awe. The man in the middle almost looks like he is praying, or waiting for the mothership to land.

The panorama is a good idea for this kind of thing. But I don't think you are taking full advantage of it. I'm not seeing that big a size difference in the Panorama format with this one.
I think you can go much larger, if you want to. Of course that would mean a lot of us would have to scroll across.

I did one like this about a year ago and I thought it would get quite a lot of reaction. Unfortunately it didn't for some reason :)

Very well seen. The image has something mystical, like a space invader. Cheers Sascha
