This is my first image post... be gentle.
Much too small at 223 x 155.
Try to make it about 600 x 400 pixels.
yes, much too small...
Geesh! What was I thinking? I forgot that it was resized that small on there.
good focus on the front stalks.
This isn't a technical critism, just one based solely on my personal preferences, but...
I don't think there's much focus in the picture - the font stalks are in focus, but there's nothing to make them stand out as the focus.
If there was some separation between the stalks at the front and the field - simply by making one cotton stalk more prominent, it would draw the viewer into the picture.
But as I say- that's just my personal perfrence so don't put too much store by it.
I think I would prefer to see more of the bottom of the stalk in the front row by taking the picture vertically. Like andycarnall said, i'm having trouble finding the focus. I know what the subject is, but my eyes just want to go all over the place...searching. Does that make sense?
That's my 2 cents...and 2 cents aren't worth much.
**EDIT** Maybe B&W would help out too. Not sure, would have to see it.
IMO it's just boring... no offense but I don't think a cotton field is that great of a subject.
Well, LittleMan, it may well be for those who only know it as t-shirts and jeans...! Like myself .
I've never seen one, and it's very interesting to me. I agree that maybe having emphasis on a single plant (with the rest in the background, if it's possible given the low contrast between a white cotton plant and a bunch of white cotton plants )...
True.... That would probably be a little better....
I'd crop the very top edge to get rid of 'non-field'.
Not sure what else I'd change.
