Critique by BRTPhotography Apr 5, 2012, 1:31:06 AM
I've always been a fan of simple photography, while It's safe to say that this isn't the most original idea, but who cares about that for this photograph in particular :) Such a simple photography sending out a powerful message to everybody that views it. The focus on the card and the background is wonderful and could be suggested as advice being given to someone who can't see the world for what it actually is and needs to learn to respect the people in it. The handwriting is very clear and helps send the message across and leaves a powerful impact on anybody who sees this photography. Overall a wonderful image that people can't help but like :)

I'd like to start this critique with saying that I think this piece is absolutely lovely, so sorry if I offend at all.

My first suggestion would be to consider changing the background, I kind of feel like if the note is just going to be in front of a generic, out-of-focus green area the it might as well just be an image of the piece of paper. I think that something relevant may help to increase the power this piece has.

On a positive note I really like the inclusion of (presumably) your own hand, as it adds a personal touch. Maybe you could do more with this as the quote is, after all, about lending a hand...

It's a great message, I'm totally agree with that but it's shame that many people don't think like that

What if it's to acknowledge what not to do/be; vice, it seems, is easiest discovered in oneself by seeing others who are victims of it. So I often look down on people :) but I also look up to people. Acknowledging the inequality of humanity is healthy, denial turns people to relativism.

I was thinking of the song "Look Down" from Les MisÚrables, and when I typed that in the search engine I found this.

You know, that actually makes a lot of sense. I like it.
