A Bridge To Far

I know the model is slap bang in the middle ,that's were I want it to be , the rule of two thirds is their to be broken too.

Simple, yet evocative. A bridge to far? Maybe not, but certainly a great image made all the better for its simplicity in concept and design. It may not adhere to the traditional idea of composition but that's what makes it all the more interesting. And in the words of the artist herself rules are indeed made to be broken. As the middle distance is obscured by the model we vaguely get the impression of a path leading us into the unknown, and lends us the idea that the model is seeing something we will never see. Whatever that may be lets hope that the parasol indicates a bright future.

Hi, thank you very much for the critique, the image is really a nothing shot what it was done for was purely for the image of the girl to be used as a stock figure
garryheath's avatar
no problem, nothing shot or not its still a good image, what do you mean by stock figure? if you don't mind me asking.

I sometimes shoot images for photographic manipulaters to take a piece from it to use to create a different image altogether , I know it waters down my own images a bit ,but its nice to see what they can use it for ...

oh I see, yeah its pretty great what can be done with digital manipulation a lot of my favourite artists use it and the results are quite stunning,
Estruda's avatar
I think its great ,too much to learn though,so I just stick to photography and put some stock images up then wait to see my photos turned into fantasy images ..
