    So today was the fight club and I just wanted some C&C on the photos I took for it today. I'm also starting a 365 project so that I can hopefully see my progression.

    the first one just doésn't look convincing enough sorry

    the send, whilst colourful isn't the best, it doesn't SCREAM colour

    the last i think looks quite good, at first glance i thought it was parking meter
    i guess it might have looked good if the needle was actually higher

    but i do like the angle, shame about the sort of dappled lighting

    I like the idea for the first shot. Given the fact that you only have one hour to shoot and process 5 pictures it's a great shot. If you were to re-shoot it as a "keeper", I think the pose could be tweaked a bit. This sort of shot should make the viewer uncomfortable. I can tell he is supposed to have fallen down the stairs, but it looks like it was posed to look like he fell down the stairs.

    The second one is well contrasted to show the colour of the ball, but the hard line on the floor draws my eye too.

    As was already mentionned, the third shot could do with a little photoshopping. Move the needle to the 120 mark.

    I almost voted for your Ow! picture. (I voted for RalphP13 - bloody drill bit, looked pretty painful, lol!)

    All in all, I don't think you did bad at all this week. There was just a lot more competition than normal. Fight Club can get pretty tough... Doesn't sound hard, but I usually can't come up with 5 creative things in an hour. Maybe 1 or 2 (3 if I'm lucky), the other ones, I'm just shooting something so I have something for that category.
    I usually spend half my time on one or two pictures...

    In this case 'Interesting' & 'Ow!' are what I spent the most time on.

    I think, with a little more time to work on it - your Ow! picture could be really good.

    There just isn't a whole lot of time in FC, and there definitely isn't enough time to re-shoot anything.

    It's a good exercise to see how fast you can think though. Keep playing.

    #1 - I almost voted for also...but I laughed so hard at 'themedicines' I had to vote for him. I agree the pose not natural looking for someone who fell down a flight of stairs (not that I would know) I like the little tilt...which adds to the photo I think.

    #2 - I would have try to fill up the frame with ball. The cat in the background is very distracting and adds nothing.

    #3 - I like the angle. The glare from the sun isn't too bad. When I looked at it, I didn't feel 'rushed' or 'hurried' though. Like others said, moving the needles to show speed would have helped, but you're on time constraints for Fight Club.

    Keep playing and working on things. I know I will be.

    1) Too fake

    2) Dingy dog's ball...not what I'd consider "colorful"

    3) The needle is at "0"...not exactly "Hurry" worthy, would have been good for "Stop"
