This image is a self portrait focusing on a maroon bow tied around two women. One is an older woman, a possible mother figure, and the other is a little girl. The two women are sitting on a bench in front of a vintage style piano against a rose covered wallpaper. This seems to be a scene set up. The image uses proper coloring and lighting.
This image is properly exposed. You can tell because none of the black areas are an unregistered black and none of the white areas are an unregistered white. The image is not to bright nor is it to dark. The image seems to be in complete focus and in good resolution. This also means that there is little o no pixelation in the image.
As far as composition goes, the image is centered on the bow that ties this mother and daughter together. The piano in the background fills a large portion of the frame nut not all of it as we are still able to clearly see the wall behind it. The rule of thirds is not being used. Instead the photographer took the picture centered on the two women at about hip level. This point of view is most likely just from that view of the photographer. The natural lines of the wall combined with the lines of the floor drift your attention immediately to the center of the photograph.
The theme of this photo could be many things, but it mainly includes the idea of bondage. It could be trying to talk about a loving bondage between mother and daughter. Or it could be about a restraining bondage between the two as one has an interpersonal struggle to escape. The symbolism of the bow is open for interpretation which I believe was the objective of the photographer. They did this so that when someone looks at it, they can let their mind create the story of it.
the image is two females tied together with a moron ribbon. they are sitting on a piano seat in front of an old looking piano and a green vine wallpaper. the photographer uses the white and light pink dresses to contrast the surrounding background and the moron ribbon is a large contrast to the white. the lighting is bright throughout the image but is coming from the right side. the light looks artificial and highlights the two females.
the image looks to be properly exposed. all the whites don't look blowout . the image is properly focused and has a adequate pixilation.
the composition is slightly pleasing to look at. the author doesn't uses the rule of thirds. the image looks to be symmetrical with the two people back to back in the middle of the image. this helps create a balanced look that gives he appearance of symmetry. the subjects fill the image very well leaving little negative space around the outside corners,
i think the image is trying to portray the bond between daughter and mother. the two sitting close together and tied by a moron ribbon could represent the bonding over a common thing which brings them together. the image reminds me of a music teacher teaching someone. I don't find this image very interning since it is only two people but it has a deeper meaning hat can make others feel very different.
The image features two people (a woman and a child) sitting on a piano bench in front of a closed piano. The woman and girl are tied together with a large maroon ribbon tied in a bow. They are both wearing dresses: The woman is wearing a white dress and the girl is wearing a pink spotted dress. The girl has her hair pulled back into a bun, and the mother’s head is cropped off. The image features duller colors, with nothing to vibrant to pop out at the viewer. One could say the colors are a bit faded even.
Overall the image seems to be properly exposed; however, on the right side of the woman’s right arm, there is a bit of whiting out. There doesn’t seem to be much information on that side of the arm, and is mainly pure white. The image is in focus as well. The subjects are in focus on the piano bench, and even the wall is semi-in focus (it is kind of blurred out). Additionally, though the colors seem to be faded and darker, the white balance is correct in the image. Everything seems to be fairly normal here.
The photographer placed the subjects in the middle of the image, perhaps to draw our attention to them (thus meaning that the rule of thirds isn’t being used here). The photographer seemed to take this image on the same plane as the bow, or even a bit lower than it. This is done to draw the viewer's attention to the bow. Since the bow is so massive, it has excess hanging off from where it is ties. These strands grab the viewer's attention and guides it down to the floor. Again, a large part of the girl’s head is cropped off and the entirety of the woman’s head is cropped off. This could be a part of the photographers message. Perhaps they don’t want us looking at the people, but moreso at the bow or what the people are doing.
There is indefinitely a story being told in this image. There are two possibilities. Either the two people are a mother and daughter, or they are a teacher and student. If they’re a mother and daughter, the bow could symbolize the tie between them which holds them together (family). They have their legs shifted to different sides of the bench and are turned away from each other. This could represent sonse sort of divide between the duo. Perhaps they are growing away from each other, but are held together for the reason that they are merely family. Hence why the ribbon is this blood red/maroonish color. They are held together by blood. The lesser argument is to say that they are a teacher and a student. That could only be thought because they are sitting in front of a piano together. There doesn't seem to be any other evidence indicating towards that being truthful.
Overall I’d say I fairly enjoy this image, mostly because of its thought provoking nature. Additionally, I’d say that this image is fairly successful with its goal. It gets the reader to question its context, and could potentially evoke some emotion from its viewers.
This photo shows two people being tied together by a ribbon. there is one little girl, and one grown up woman. the woman looks to be her mother. they are sitting next to a piano on the piano bench. there are light areas above and around the piano, and there are shadows under and within the piano.
the image focuses on the little girl and the mother meaning the aperture must be a wide setting. since this is a self portrait, the people are placed in the center of the photo to let the viewers know that these people are important. The picture is perfectly exposed. and this photo is color correct.
the artist probably made this image to show the bonding of family, or just bondage in general. the ribbon is a sign of relation because it brings the little girl and the mother together. the little girl and the mother are wearing dresses in this photo, this might have been either a family photo, or an image to remind them off family. This photo really reminds me of a family photo but focuses on the ribbon to show the relationship between them.
overall, this photo is very interesting. the photo is taken in perfect succession, and shows a major thought behind it. If a photo shows both great quality in the image and thought, i consider the photo successful. Nice this photo demonstrates both qualities, i believe that this photo is excellent.
This image seems like a daughter and mother bond. The bond is clearly exemplified showing from the ribbon around each of their bodies tied together. The image shows a mother and a daughter sitting on one small piano table and they are facing the piano. The colors in the image are very bright and vivid and the lighting is very bright.
This image is perfectly exposed and the image is in great focus. The colors are correct and theres no seeing of pixilation. Adequate resolution.
The rule of thirds is not being used seeing as the two girls are right in the middle of the image. The point of view is from behind them and the focal point is the two girls right in the middle of the photo. The wood floor directs the viewers eyes right to the girls. The image is balanced as well.
I assume the theme of this image is mother and daughter bonds even if they are in a argument they still have that bond which is the ribbon. The artist may have made this image because she had the same bond with her mother and didn't realize it, so she wants us to realize it.
Personally, I like the image a lot. It gives off a good message to a lot of young adults and even parents. I really think this photograph is successful because of the message.
This image is of a young girl and a woman sitting on a piano stool. They are tied next to each other with a silk ribbon. The girl is in a pink dress while the home is in a white dress. The silk ribbon is purple. The other colors that dominate this picture are brown hard wood floors and the brown piano. The wall in the background seems to be a wallpaper that consists of flowers all over it. Everything is dark except for the dresses. their backs are facing us so we can not see their faces.
This image seems to be mostly in good exposure. The right side of the picture is light where as the left side is dark. The pixelation is adequate. The color seems correct. The focal point seems to be the purple ribbon which is in the middle of the picture. The point of view is from behind the girl and woman. There is quite a bit of open space in the corners. The bottom left corner is very dark while the bottom right corner is very light. The picture seems to be a little symmetrical in that the girl and woman are back to back and it could be viewed as a before and after.
Some themes that may be included in this picture is the relationship between a mom and her daughter and how they are tied together. But another theme could be a relationship between youth and age. As the young girl once sat at the piano the woman now sits at it now remembering her childhood and how they are bonded through this memory. This picture is very elegant and beautiful.
I do like this picture. I like how elegant it seems with them both in dresses and the woman without her shoes. The ribbon helps all this as well. The very intricate wall paper and the piano help add to this elegance. I feel as though this photograph was successful because you can draw ideas from it and ponder the meaning of the picture. Over all I think this picture is successful and I liked it.
The image is of what is probably a mother sitting with her daughter at a piano. They are tie together with a ribbon. It is using lots of colors you expect to see in a n older house (brown, white). The lighting is normal, though in the far left it is very dark. It is a studio setup. The piano and piano chair are a very dark brown, and they look very old and ornate. Though they are sitting at the piano it does not appear that they are playing anything.
The image is correctly exposed,as it should be given it is a studio setup. The whole image is in focus, with the flower in the wallpaper being in focus along with the wood in the foreground. The image is correctly white balanced, with the white paint looking just as you would expect. The resolution is fine. all of this you would expect from a professional photographer.
The image is pleasing to look at, with the old wood looking very nice. The rule of thirds is not being used, with everything being centered. the point of view is about even with the hight of the keys on the piano. the focal point is the people and the piano, and they are sort of framed by the wood floor and wallpaper. The lines of the wood flooring and the white part of the wall direct your eyes to the piano and people, and the piano almost directs your eyes to the people. The image is balanced, with everything being centered. The subject almost entirely takes up the image, leaving very little room on the edges for negative space. The edge of the image has both the wallpaper and the flooring.
think the theme of the image is very maternal. It is showing the relationship between a mother and daughter. I don’t know that there is actually much of a story, though it could be that the mother shares thespian with her daughter and teaches her it, just like everything else in life. The artists intention was to, at the very least, to show the relationship between the mother and daughter. The house does remind me of the houses in Pittsburgh, and my family has a piano a lot like the one pictured in the image. The image does not really challenge anything, and it is more of a feel good image.
I do like the image, as its colors are very nice and very few people would find any problems with he subject matter.
This image is a self-portrait. The image is using dark colors, blacks, browns, pink, and red. There are dark shadows and sun light in the image. The objects in this image are a young girl and a woman sitting on a piano stool. In front of them is a piano, closed. You can not see their faces, letting you insert your self in to the image.
The rule of thirds is being used in the image. the center of the image is on the bow, tied around the girl and woman. i believe the photographer used the frame of the piano and then of the stool to direct your eyes the the bow. the image is well balanced and symmetrical There are the lines of the wood floor and the wood paneling on the wall, then the lies on the piano. the subject dose fill the frame. the image crops off the woman head and the top of the girls head.
i think the theme or story behind this image is how the girl loves the piano and now that she is older she still dose. i think the photographer made this image to show the love for some thing can be with you from a young age to a old age.
I do like this image. the image is interesting and i would like to know what the story behind it is so I could know if i was right or wrong. the believe this photo was successful and intriguing.
This image is of a woman and a little girl tied together by a big and flowy maroon bow sitting on a piano bench next to a dark wood piano. It is not very colorful because it is more elegant; colors such as dark and light brown,flower print wallpaper, white walls and dress, and a baby pink dress on the girl. There are distinct highlights on the right side and shows on the left as if sunlight was coming through that direction. The image is correctly exposed though and in focus.
The white balance is correct and is in adequate resolution. The image is very pleasing because of the colors and the textures being used. The rule of thirds is partially being put into action because each square would be filled but the bow is in the middle. Their really is now definite point of view because it isn't common to walk in on two people tied together by a bow.
The focal point is mainly the maroon bow framed by the girl and the woman. The lines on the piano and floors help direct your eye throughout the image. The image is balanced and symmetrical due to the two people.The image does have additional space so the piano could be present.The frame just crops of the rest of the wall and room and the negative and positive space can be presented as the highlights, shadows, people, piano, and dresses.
The story being told can be interpreted as the mother/child bond are closely tied together but in a feminine and delicate way or the ways of the mother determines the same thing for her child. If the mother played piano, the child will to. More of a queen and princess concept. The artist made this image because she most likely had an experience with the theme or has a good understanding of it. It reminds of a movie with the same sort of theme. It is certainly noteworthy and i like it because of the content and how pleasing it is. The image is successful due to its composition.
The image to me shows a little girl and her mother. It is of the girl and another lady to the right of her. They are both dressed nap in dresses. They are tied together by a maroon bow. Both are sitting on a piano bench.
Good light in the photo. Not natural light. There is a piano included in the image in the background. The image looks to be in focus. The image looks to be properly exposed.
The image looks to have no pixelation. It also looks to be centered and taken at level with the women and the girl. Looks to be focus on the girl and the women. The subject does mostly fill the space of the image. Doesn't look to have negative spots.
I am trying to figure out the story in this image. It is a different photo. By that i mean it is different by the way it is shown or the subject in the photo. It is a interesting photo. It shows a different idea. I do like this photo. Its different but a good different.
The image displayed above is of a younger girl and what looks to be her older mom or sister. The older woman has a white dress on which seems to me is a wedding dress and the daughter has a fancy pink dress on. Both seem to be barefoot and intrigued with looking at the wall. They are both tied to each other with the older girls red sash. The people looking at this image cannot see the people in the pictures face, in fact you can barely see the older woman shoulders. The colors used in this image are white, pink, brown, end, green, and black but what attracts your eye the most is the red sash.
The image is not under or over exposed but in fact perfectly exposed. The image is in focus all around the photo. The wedding dress is white and therefore looks white so the picture is in correct color. There is no pixelation in the picture because it is in such good focus. The rule of thirds is being used in the image, but the girls are right in the middle.
The photographer took this picture at the angle where he was directly behind the girls. The picture is framed but is cutting off a good remains portion of the picture, like the brides head. The focal point is the red velvet sash, when you look at the photo its so bright and big thats the first thing you look at. The subject does not fit the frame in fact there needs to be more frame. The image is balanced, but is not symmetrical because its not equally the same on each side.
The themes in this image in my opinion are, of a bride who is being forced into an arranged marriage and doesn’t want to leave her family, especially her sister which is why she is tied up to her and she refuses even get ready which is why she is barefoot. The artist made this image maybe because this could be a real life situation that has happened before. This image reminds me of an idea of a runaway bride. This image is intriguing to me and I like it and believe its successful because theres a lot going in in this picture that your eyes are drawn too and I just think that Heather Evans Smith did a great job with this picture.
The image shows a middle age woman and a young girl sitting down at a piano. Both are wearing what appear to be night gowns, a pink one for the young girl and a white one for the older woman, and are resting on eachothers side. They are bound together by a maroon colored ribbon. In front of them is a dark brown wooden piano up against a half white wooden wall and half flower patterned. The floor is a lighter brown wood and the little girl's hair is dirty blonde.
The image seems to be properly exposed although one half of the room appears darker than another this seems to be from the light source coming from a side of the piano. The image is focused mainly on the girl and woman and the bow and the rest of the image while not completely out of focus is a bit blurry. There is no pixelation on the focused area but can be found a tad on the background. The image is also taken from the perspective of someone looking at the at the two women from behind and is also taken from an angle where you cannot see the head of the older women and only part of the back of the head of the little girl. Most of the colors in the image and their blend leaves it very pleasing to look at and eye catching.
The image does not use the rule of thirds as the images are taken at an angle where the girl and woman are dead center. It is somewhat framed though as the image uses the piano to frame the girl and woman. The image uses lines from the wooden floor planks and the markings of lines on the piano and wall, but these lines do not direct your eye towards anything specific. The floor planks don’t come together and only lead you to look upwards at the woman, girl, and piano which does not lead to much of a focal point. The image is symmetrical mostly but can be thrown off by the size difference of the woman and the girl which leads to an overall more appealing image.
The image could be portraying a woman who is now bound to her childhood and creativity by playing the piano as she is literally bound to a young girl sitting next to a piano in the image. The artists could be making the image to show what keeps her connected to her youth. The image is not necessarily noteworthy but it is very interesting and beautiful. I think the image is successful in representing artists passion while being visually stimulating. I like the image for it’s blending of colors, message, and perspective.
