| p.1 #5 · Is The Grass Greener ... |
+1 @ maybe a bit more scale/mass to the grass that overwhelms the door a bit. Thought about trimming it down some more, but left as is for critique. While the doors for WA is certainly the immediate application, it isn't the only purpose/intent for the image.
This is actually a tombstone memorial vault ... thus the "other side" is in context of death & burial, and the focus on the grass/ground is a bit of a question related to is this the way to pass through the door to the other side where the grass is greener.
The current crop omits the name atop the vault. I'm surmising that the memorial vault aspect isn't coming through well as a result. Here's an sooc of the reversed focus that offers another perspective. This was my original thought for the WA effort, but once I was lying on the ground, the relationship of the ground to the doors to the other side brought things into a different focus for me, hence the inverted focal point as part of the burial/ascension interplay. Maybe, I could show the full memorial, but clone out the name (rather than crop).
As is, I figure it only presents about 60%-70% of the message. Likely will need a re-shoot as I think it through some more. Getting the interplay of focus (tilt/shift) weighted between them will be a challenge to the dynamics of the image ... the devil is in the details.
BTW ... try not to think of this one in context of the WA or a picture of doors. My goals for it are to work it to stand on its own as a philosophical piece geared toward thought provocation of what lies on the other side, once we are laid to rest.
