Comparing Good vs. Bad By: Lexi Pedersen and Rebecca Au
Good because the pastel colors bring out the subject in the photo. Even though this photo is not in focus it gives the overall picture some texture and makes it more interesting. This shows a great photo does not have to be in focus all the time.
Bad because it doesn't make the viewer think or feel really anything, it is very plain and dry.
Good because rule of thirds is being used, the photographer also took advantage of the lake and used it to mirror the subject. Lots of creative composition tools were used in this photo.
Bad because it is out of focus, it seems as if no effort was put into taking this photo. It looks like photo was just taken head on and the subject matter is poorly framed.
Good because having the picture be a wide frame, shows the whole details that are in the photo.
Bad because the photo cuts off the main contrast (the purple) on the left hand side. Feels if picture was wider, the feeling of it being whole would be there.
Good because even though the photo seems monochrome or dark its meant to be like that giving the photo a creative mood to it playing with the exposure. Not every photo has to be brightly lit to be an exceptional photo.
Bad because the photo seems overexposed and the light in the background is extremely bright. The photographer sacrificed the background for the subject matter.
