    For a photochallenge I've made this set of 5 pictures called 'Antithesis' (I don't know if that's the real English word for what I mean, but it's almost similar to opposites).

    I have to send those tomorrow, so I hope to get some respons before then.

    Very clever, well composed, and exposed images, but I have to admit, I don't get "it"...

    brilliant! loving #2 and #3. Must have taken a lot of time and effort! Especially the picture-in-picture in #2... nice touch!

    contrast
    contradiction
    direct opposition
    etc.

    Overall, nicely done.

    I feel #1 is too staged and a bit cheezy.
    The picture-in-picture is a great addition on #2.
    Undecided on #3, I think because the way the model on right is looking / posing at the camera.
    Not fond of the harsh shadows on #4.
    Shame about cutting part of her head off in #5.

    All that being said, I think you have some great ideas for this theme and your shots are good.

    Thank you! It took two days to take the photos. First day at a farm, next day at a very old house.

    Antithesis means juxtaposition or opposing view ;)

    Thanks for your feedbak! :)
    The idea of #1 was that she looks confident while wearing clothes that doesn't belong on a farm. I dont know if you can see that on the photo? But maybe it's too staged indeed...
    Thanks for the feedback on #3, I guess you're right about the way the right model is looking, it doesn't say anything..
    You're right about the harsh shadow on #4.. This was the only cute window, so I dont know how to do (or edit) it better.. Any ideas?
    Yes, you're right about #5..

    Personally, I'm not sure it's quite the right name; a picture cannot really be the direct opposite of itself; I understand what you want now, and don't mean to belabour a point, but in my opinion these pictures are definitely worth finding the right name for.

    Something along the lines of "Out of place" is what I would suggest, but for the life of me, I can't come up with quite the right word, and I think that it does need to be a single word. (It's 5.30am - the old synapsis aren't firing at 100% just yet - I'll keep thinking on this one).

    Okay, after some thought, the title I would suggest is "Incongruity", The adjective incongrous meaning "not harmonious in character; inconsonant; lacking harmony of parts: an incongruous mixture of architectural styles."
