I have designed a series of photos for my finale piece, for my course work. I used a digital camera and Photoshop to create the effects on the image. Emotion behind the artwork is based upon depression. Once I was happy with the artwork. I projected it onto a wall to take photographs. I was wondering for your artist opinions what you think of my final piece and photography, giving me feedback? All opinions welcome.

Thanks look forward hearing from you.

i think there are some great ideas there. i particularly like the idea of using undergrowth to create "natural" borders within the picture. i can't claim to understand the significance of the light emanating from the off-centre centre of the picture, but i feel you executed it well. i must admit to having a natural aversion to train tracks in any piece of artwork, but i'm certainly not going to belittle your efforts - you picked a great angle to shoot them from and have placed them well in the picture, giving them presence but not allowing them to dominate.
but of course, i don't know my arse from my elbow. good luck

The technical effect remindes me of an old time faded glass negative plate. The subject montage does reflect the feeling of solitude and the contemplation of ones own demise. This isn't a very comforting piece to look at on a psychological basis. Every life matters. D.

iorek, your elbow is the thing you lean on, and you sit on the other one. Hope that helps. Smile

You did a bang-up job, Pete. It truly is depressing as hell, because you totally captured the feeling in that emotion. I just hope you get onto 'happy' soon before you hurt yourself.

Okay, I'm heading for that bottle of Scotch now... Pete, this captures the mood you seek to capture very well. I actually like this one better than the previous "Depression" take. Well, "like" isn't exactly right. This image is unsettling; it's not one I'd want to stare at for a long time if I were feeling the least bit down. What I mean, then, is that this version of "Depression" is more powerful and effective (to me) than the previous one. -Brian

I would like to thank you all for your comments you have gave me, on the image depression-projection. The photograph was for my college work crating depression by manipulating images to create the emotion, so don’t worry I am not really depressed. I don’t always play on train track in my spare time. If I were you bclapper I would stop looking at the image and keep of the scotch. I really appreciate you looked at both of my images and compared them leaving me feedback. It was cool to see how others judge my work and how they feel differently towards it.
Thanks guys.
