Walking Away by specialneon Walking Away by specialneon
This is part of my "Self-Portrait" Series for Spring Quarter at Ohio State.

Instructor: Brad Olson

I realize that I processed the print in such a way that it came out too dark.

Awwww, such cute feet, reminds me of a wall poster of Galatians 5:1 I saw which had a pair of bare feet just broken out of ankle chains walking away.

I love this picture, regardless of if it's too dark or gray and depressing, I think it's a great shot.

It is dark, but I still really like this photo. Like your other self-portrait with just the eyes, it really makes me want to see more... not in a perverted way ;), just in a way that there is a great sense of mystere and tease to the photos.

I think the darkness adds a certine kind of mystery to the subject and her environment. Very nice!

I'm sort of torn between liking and disliking the darkness myself. I realize that technically it shouldn't be that dark, but at the same time I like it. But then I'm curious as to what it would look like technically correct.

I'll no doubt re-print it next time I'm in a dark room.

I don't see any images--it's just wikipedia.

Okay, so maybe "dark" was not the correct term. It's just so gray and dreary that it's depressing. I feel like when I look at this image I am looking through a fog, and that it should be much more crisp than this.

Most of the reason it is foggy though is because it was not the best negative in the world because of the weird lighting situation down there/here. But the rest of it is me. I love the composition of this image, but the image itself just seems lacking to me.

That could, however, just be a case of me being my own worst critic.

STOP! I favored it and I take favoring very seriously. Think of it this way. If I favor something I would hang it in a gallery space...and that is pretty critical. [link]
