This is an old threatre house, converted to a curious bar... the caption in the background reads "Feelings a la nude, 6 euros"

After looking at your previous posts and this one, your work seems more "artistic" than a lot of the work you see on the site. And I'm not saying glamour can't be artistic (please don't send me any emails people! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]). I guess I mean it's more "fine art". I can definitely see a Kander influence in your work.

What might be helpful is if you maybe posted what you were trying to achieve with your photos -- what issues the work is speaking about/for or against, if any, etc. (I saw in your bio your interest in photos dealing with various issues). However, as I was taught, when critiquing (Thomas Roma style) I also look at not only what the image is supposed to say, but what it is saying, or is saying to me, if that makes any sense at all. (In fact, what it does say is, I feel, more important than what the artist was actually trying to say in the first place.)

I may have gone off on one of my little tangents [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img], but I guess I'm saying that I critique "glamour" works and "fine art" works differently. The purpose of "glamour" is pretty basic -- to entice, to titilate, etc. "Fine art", to me, is much broader. It's like this -- glamour is art, but not all art is glamour -- kind of things.

Any image, glamour or otherwise, if it speaks to me, makes me think, makes me look at longer than a passing glance, keeps my eye in the image, then it must be successful, right?

I did it again. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] Where the heck did all that come from? I must be in a philosophical mood or something. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] Anyway, back to your image. I like it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I like it because at first it looks kinda like a just a snapshot, but on closer inspection, I feel there's more to it. The woman looks, to me, hesitant/uneasy about being there in front of that bar. That's just what I glean from her eyes. Composition keeps me looking at it. My eye goes from the woman's eyes/face, to the figure (is that a person or a mannequin?), to the bar sign, and back down again (occasionally checking out the three rectangular things above her head).

I think my favorite thing about this image is that it initially looks like a simple snapshot, but, looking closer, it's far from that at all.

Or, on the other hand, I could just be reading way too much into things. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Keep posting. I like your work.

Sam

P.S.: Sorry, I know you weren't looking for all this. I must be in a chatty mood. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Thanks for your response, I've already begun mentioning a bit about the theme of the photo... In response to you analysis... this was basically a snap shot, but not so snappy, I tried framing it in a way to show the sign the girl and yes... the mannequin... I wanted to give the empression of someone who doesn't want to be there and by only allowing the viewer to see these certain elements give them the impression of it being more like a strip club instead of an occupied building that has been refurbished.... Thanks for your insight and response...
Cheers,
Mike
