Seems like a rather nondescript and unrecognizable random form without pattern. Even knowing what it is, it's hard to tell what it is to associate the elements.

I get the chaos of a scrum concept, but I think it falls in "no man's land" between literal vs. interpretive.

Yup, maybe a clunker...

I like the processing. A scrum might be a bit beyond an American audience, but work better for a Kiwi one.

Perhaps a bit of a crop from the top to give it a more massive feel?

So, this is interesting.
I agree with Kent AND Karen!
I think monotone was the right choice here, simplifying the image into shapes, tension, and the tight formation of the scrum.

Karen and Scott,

Thank you for your thoughts. I had not thought but yes, familiarity with the sport would help.

My thoughts? An enigma that portrays the tensions of the moment, prompting a second and third look. Certainly not a fall-into-your-lap-ho-hum piece. A visual challenge.

Not everyone's cup of tea, for sure.

Thanks again,

Bob

Interpretive art is Difficult to convey to the masses... This is simply because of various levels of acceptance... As one likes coffee, another wants tea... If your niche is interpretive do not give up, there is an audience awaiting ... That said, I prefer Karen's rework as it brings into focus the interactions of the sport... Jim

Thanks Jim,

Yes I prefer Karen's re-work also. I appreciate your looking and the feedback.

Genre? I tire of the same old thing, even family images, so like to venture in other directions occasionally. I would imagine viewers do too. If we don't try, we'll never know.

Plus, I like to stir the pot on occasion too (entertain ones self).

Regards,

Bob

Of course, in New Zealand, Rugby isn't sport, it's religion.

I can certainly appreciate trying something new, while it may not work for everyone the only person that really matters is you

Karen's re-work really draws you in and removes the distractions.

I like the construction of the original.

A couple of minor nits, the vertical line in the background and the white fluff on the shorts in the front.

Otherwise it's a cool abstract of a scrum.

Almost like an army. awful pun intentional.

Paul,

Thanks for your thoughts - missed the lint, debris or whatever, line is a botched clone job in LR - should have taken the moment to use CS6. Happy you like the image.

Regards,

Bob
