Critique 2

Published October 23, 2012 by tr1ckst3r

Here we have yet another portrait photo by Dorothea Lange. I found this one interesting mostly for its contrast. The light in the sky creates a sort of boarder, making the dark umbrella and woman pop out easier. The detail in the photo,  particularly the face, is slightly diminished by the shadows and her expression is obscured. This is both good and bad, as it can rather create mystery, or un-interest.

I’ll give it 7/10 for these reasons.
