Title? Not Sure

Filed under: Robert Hoehne — Rex @ 00:39



  1. Posing for Rodin?

    The colour composition in this is good with the greens and reds harmoniously interspersed. While I am assuming that this is suburbia, the tree to the left behind the house suggests the proximity of countryside. The positioning of the boy really lifts the picture and his pose could have more read into it than may be was the case in reality. Why though is he not quite sharp? The hand I could understand but the head as well. I can only presume that it is to do with setting the mood for the title! On the other hand, it could all be movement. At a guess, he’s saying: “Oh bother, I’ve left my homework in the house”.

  2. Intriguing. This certainly makes me want to know what the boy is doing. He seems to be in motion–not just the arm and hand. By the position of the opposite shoulder, I wonder if he is running?

    Off topic, is that a bottle-brush behind the boy. We had two of them at our house in the San Fernando Valley and the hummingbirds loved them. I will miss them very much.

  3. It is all slightly soft. The background looks like it is beyond DoF, the boy is soft in another way which I cannot fathom, not camera shake, not motion blur, not OoF but soft. Given the amount of space I’ve already spent on the techie bit you can tell it is ‘bothering’ me.

  4. A Homeresque ‘Doh’ would work methinks. Good timing for a great expression however his placing in the shot leaves the background a little at odds. It then comes across as being two pasted layers rather than a complete. Needs to be something in the background to anchor this all together.

  5. Agree with “intriguing”. I don’t so much mind the lack of sharpness in the boy — it almost seems to add to the spontaneous feeling, but I do wish that the background was sharp if he isn’t, or vice versa.

    The color is very good.

  6. While the picture is less than satisfactory in regards to sharpness somehow I always see through that filter ( the looking for sharpness one ) and am intrigued by the shapes created by the hand and head and the space inbetween. The shapes created by the back of the head and frame and the sky.
    Everything has a distinct shape differinf from everyother shapes in the picture.
    This is one I think I may have to draw on paper, which will be less sharp again but acceptably so, where I can bring the qualities I like forward. The camera being my visual scrapbook this time.

  7. Robert – I understand your thoughts on this and have kept recent pictures from Paris that should be discarded on purely technical grounds.
