  #173 Big
Entry 10 of 19
   
 
FIDO       ©2016 babysister
Panasonic DMC-GX7       10th place, 68 points
1/200s, f5.6, ISO 200, 14mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Increased the exposure and cropped. Some cloning and dodging. Sharpened.       Extra Info: This big dog was erected by a local council from it's Arts Grant, much to the outrage of most of the local people. It is at a suburban railway station and when first built and a train approached the eyes would go red and the tail wagged. Unfortunately I did not see that wonder as the apparatus is in need of repair. He is named FIDO - F........ Industrial Dog Object. (F.. is the name of the place not anything more sinister)

    I think the view is cluttered and the model would have been better seated on a paw or leaning against the dog. It certainly is a big dog and right on theme.

    The inclusion of the figure really helps in understanding the size. I think locals are always outraged at new sculptures or installations provided by councils. I like the look of this one. In my faves.

    Your subject was well chosen for the theme, but how you composed your shot and where you took the picture has lots to be desired. Many distracting elements in the background, and your processing has (possibly) left lots of noise and artifacts.

    Suits to the topic. The size is easy to see because that lady.

    Something looks wonky here....and it is the sculpture, which is angular and leaning, and the figure who is posing so conventionally...this almost looks like a parody....the image does look the colour has been slightly washed out.

well on theme. what was the alternative for the art grant spend.

it looks like a large traffic hazard as well

    aoc46: Thanks for your comment. I agree about the background distractions but I tried all angles and this was the one with the least problems.

    Intereting object, with the lady giving a good sense of scale. The building, car and wires are kind of distracting; could a different camera angle perhaps have offered a cleaner background?
