6" higher and I would have liked it more . . .
By taking the shot up to the waistline you would have created an allure of possibilities to the viewer.
"Who is she, is she as attractive as her lower body suggests...."

This is from the first roll of HIE I ever shot, which is probably part of the reason I've always liked it.
Plus, I thought the way the fence shadow simulated train tracks was very cool; but, seeing as how I've had to point this out to everyone it's apparently not as obvious - let alone cool - as I thought! :p

I've always had a hard time passing this off as interesting, but for some reason I've always been drawn towards it, and infact wanted to go back with my 4x5 and try again. Maybe I should and see if I can come up with a composition that other people like more.
Shot it with a Yashica 635 TLR on FP4+ 120.
well I think it's very interesting, the composition is great and the choice of focus really sets it off.
I'm coming over for a holiday November, if I happen across this scene I won't think twice about ripping it off.;)

You could try Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park too. Another of the Magnificent Seven (the cemeteries originally opened to solve the overcrowding in all the city churchyards) and now a park and nature reserve. Also free, and not crowded. Near Bethnal Green tube.
I second that one, lots of material hidden in the undergrowth.

I shot an old hospital (http://graememitchell.com/blog/dammasche-or-a-now-defunct-mental-health-hospital-part-2)and quickly rejected the pictures I took, too garish; I was too immature to realize what I was feeling, probably still am. Ditto with this project (http://graememitchell.com/blog/senior-bowling-pictures).
Bad pics, good lessons.
I'm sorry but your bowling alley pic does not qualify in the un-loved catagory anymore....I quite like it. I'm a recreational bowler myself (mostly in the winter) so I'm naturally drawn to this pic. The intensity of the bowler is great and the DOP is perfect...

This one people said made no sence at all but I like it.:confused:

I think my redscale photos aren't very well liked. I think they're neat :)

A favorite of mine that nobody ever really seemed to notice.
Mamiya 645, 80mm f/1.9 wide open, Tri-X Pan 320, 1/30s handheld.

I like it Dave, it's got a kind of serenity, but a tension aswell

I like it too. It's got that depth of field that almost makes it look unnatural. The floor looks like it's a macro shot so the tire seems like it's stuck on, not part of the original... if you know what I mean.

This (in the greenhouse, the 1st one) is one of a few that were the very first I ever shot with my Hasselblad. My kind neighbor never chases me off (like my kids do) when I appear with my camera. This hasn't gotten any attention, while I like it.
Oh yes, and there's another of him (shelling peas) that I really like, but I think others look at it as a dud. The one with the strong shadows - I like it. A photographer said to me, "imagine it without the shadows". I think it's partly the shadows that make me like it!

here's one of mine. a fuji 645 shot on HP5 cropped. I really like it, but no one else does :)
I do. I love it! It is simple, yet says a lot.

Dude, "photos that no one else likes" is the major theme of my work :)

I like this picture of Maracas Beach, Trinidad, but nobody else does. I used a Voigtlander Bessa R with 35mm Ultron lens, and a red filter. Film was TMX shot at 200.

Palantiri, what's not to like about that?
09-25-2007, 05:55 PM
I get a lot of, "They still make black and white film?" comments. Or, "You went to the beach to take black and white pictures??!"
09-25-2007, 07:50 PM
why photograph chairs?
why black and white? it'd be better in colour!
where are the people?

I had the same thought as JGCull--what's not to like about that?
09-25-2007, 11:05 PM
helluva shot, David!

I like your first one very much, allthough I think a little different print is needed to make it pop. The second one, I dont like like so much initially... but its weird cause when i see the thumbnail i see the patterns in the shadows and it really catches my eye.. But then when I see the full size i focus more on the man and the can.
