Re: Your thoughts? CC welcomed.


Like it for the novelty and mystery of trying to guess what the lady behind the painting looks like.

The real message I see here is in the painting and the feet. Everything else pulls me off that message and dilutes it: The red painting and the clutter above, those in the gap. I also don't really see the connection with the caption either and it becomes a distraction also. The drop shadow is dropped and blurred so much it looks like a smudge and is also distracting.

This one is a case where I think isolating the dancer painting and the legs in color and making everything else B&W and blurring it a bit would work and the art <> life duality clearer without all the other distractions. If you try that I'd lose the drop shadow on the caption.
