Shot taken from the childrens ward of a derelict mental asylum
Perfect, love the angle and the mood.
I like the broken stuff on the ground, but I don't like the angle. Maybe a vertical shot would have been better.
Thanks for the comments guys.
You don't think the image would've looked a bit too static if all the lines were going up?
If I don't have an obvious human element in the picture, or I have a picture where I'm trying to convey tension, I feel a slight diagonal tilt helps portray that.
I think the angle definately adds a human element to it. The tilt is as if the viewer is peeking into the doorway. The light thing on the right really adds interest to the empty-ish right side of the image. Overall I really like it.
oh f-in-hell that's creepy.
Awesome angle, composition... everything. GREAT.
Oh!! Can't think of the words to describe the feelings this bring out. Well done.
I seriously love this. I keep looking at it.
You need to print this and frame it.
GREAT shot. I LOVE the angle - really artistic. Like manaheim said print this and hang it... if its not to scary . You can make some $$$ off this
We're having this big debate on the chat about whether or not a tilt in this shot is either necessary or appropriate. I say yes. However, some would say no. As a result of this conversation, we decided to try to un-tilt it for comparison.
I did a quick and dirty job just to get an idea. It borks the image up a little bit, but should give enough of a sense. I hope you an forgive the edit. Your profile doesn't specify your preference.
Wow I just noticed the painted figures behind the crib on the wall. DAMN that's creepy.
I need to get a print of this from OP... right after I get one of invisible's lily.
god that's creepy. great job. i normally dont approve of tilts, but that one is perfect. it sets the mood. it gives a sense of disorientation.
