    Should I have cleaned the window or does the dirt actually add reality to it?

    Oh, and by the way, this is shot on slide film.

    thanks all .. actually since it is not my window, people would have looked at me in strange ways if I started cleaning it ;)


    well, I also have a B&W version of it ...

    :lol: You never know, maybe someone would have thanked you.

    I think it does add to the shot. I prefer the color to B&W the green against the stark black is very striking. Very nice Alex!

    I'm glad you didnt clean the window and I like it in color. the green is gorgeous. I wouldnt touch the crop though, the black against the green is wonderful and it almost acts as a mat for the image. Great work!

    Wow, nice composition, I think its very creative! On the dirt... I am sorta divided. For the color picture, I like the dirt. However, for the black and white picture I would have cleaned it. Oh, and I like the black and white better.

    it wouldn't make any sense to have it without dirt . . . bc then it wouldn't really be focused on anything but the frame.

    i like it!
