    CCSU goes Cubist. CCSU is a utilitarian campus but includes a few inspired designs. This however, is not one of them. This minimalist composition was made to convey static, nothingness. It is in fact a color photo. The figure is center positioned intentionally to strip the image of energy, and ultimately relies on the viewers eye to fill in the void.

      This is a good one. I especially like the marks on the white marble floor, conveying a sense of repeated use and the presence of past "walkers".
      I don't think the decision to put the figure in the top middle portion was a good one though... for me it puts a border, a limit, and hurts the image flow.

      Great open pic with the subject positioned well. The creativity works well wit hthe patterned floor and the lack of colour also keeps things to a bare minimum.

      Good Shot

      Creativity - 4 Marks
      It takes guts to frame a shot like this.

      Composition - 4 Marks
      Maybe the person could be a touch lower in the frame but they are still well places and slightly off-centre too which I like.

      Colours - 3 Marks
      The use of colour is good.

      Capture - 4 Marks
      Again, the action is captured well and carries a sense of motion. It works well

      Marks 15/20
      Good picture

      Thanks -- I really appreciate the feedback. (just so you know -- the comment i left you was before I saw this. Everything I said is sincere!) I was surprised we used similar ideas to critique.

      all and nothing in the same pic. Like vey much the contrast between the girl and the floor, seems to be in b/w, but it's not, or yes?...noooo

      She reminds me of a lone ant scurrying about in the void.

      Excellent composition. I think you could make it even more striking with some dodging and burning in photoshop.
