Picture of the Week
Since Donncha asked me so nicely, I decided to whore, err... promote his entry in this years Mallow Camera Club annual exhibition, currently showing in Mallow Town Library. Now, I can't say I'm a big fan of this image at all, to be honest, its all a bit disgusting (outside ashtray, small cigar, Brendan O'Carroll!), but when has me not liking an image stopped me from making it POTW. POTW isn't about images I like, oh no! It's a sneaky method of getting glicky with important people on the internet :)
Seriously though, the image is quite interesting; theres quite a lot going on. An outsider on first glance wouldnt know what to make of it. You have this strong focus on his eyes but everything else is a bit of a mystery. I guess the most talked about aspect of this image will be "what the hell is strapped to his head". Sure, we all know its a microphone, but I think you could spin an interesting story around it.
[The only critical consideration I would put on the image is whether another tighter crop was considered, removing the dark area from the left which may draw the eye away too much] I have read Donncha's post again and I now realise that the actual image on display is cropped tighter.
I was going to post about the picture and exhibition earlier, but it's running till the 29th so I decided to let Donncha sweat it out a bit first :) Anyway, nice work, good tonal range!
