    when I took this I really did like the idea.. now I hate it, it looks terrible, doesn't it?

    got several versions of this, horizontal, off centre, diagonal ... is it the colours which wreck the image?

    maybe this belongs to tzhe rant section, or to snapshots and bloopers ... and not here ...

    Ill give it a shot...what if the image that you see in focus was a whole subject rather than a part of it? I think the color is needed.

    If there was a real subject in there, like a bird on the tree, than it would be good.


    I would have thrown it back.

    well, was trying to create an abstract image (no bird needed then), but it does not work as such ... at least that is my impression

    I think the glass thing is distracting, but good concept.

    perhaps a flap horizon but upside down then?

    I just wish I could see more detail where the glass was broken.

    My take, when doing the "frame a subject with an out-of-focus frame" thing, the frame needs to be on the borders of the picture, not taking up most of the picture. My eyes are distracted by the "frame" and try to focus on it, almost leaving the center "subject" unnoticed. In other words, it hurts my eyes.

    maybe this would be a typical "get the frame in focus" image? with the leaves blurred? I also have uncentred versions of this, but in all cases the glass is not in focus ...
