Untitled (Manila)

Manila, June 2010

I’m going through an abstract period.



  1. The colours are a real find.

    If you turn it clockwise 90 deg it looks much better; in fact, every direction other than this one looks more painterly – for me. In all those other directions it would make a great print.

  2. I like this kind of image, I put it in the found art category. You have brought to my attention something which is unintentionally beautiful for my enjoyment and which, without your help, would have remained unseen.
    I do like it rotated through 90 as John says.

  3. Well seen and executed. That spot of bright blue is important. I will not rotate it, — happy enough with the presentation given.

    There is a certain genre of stock photography that this fits nicely into — might have commercial potential as a background or texture.

  4. If not for the flakes of paint on the bottom right area I’d have been a little confused about what this is.
    This picture is all about surface, for that it requires plenty of detail which for the most part it has. I feel those flakes need to be in sharper focus.

  5. The focus bothers me too. I guess that the lack of focus on the foreground draws attention to the medium – something that this sort of image doesn’t need.

  6. OoF, I hadn’t noticed.

  7. I hadn’t noticed, but agree with John about the orientation of the picture. The jarring piece for me is the out of focus paint peel lower right of the image as it conflicts with the clarity of the rest of the image.

  8. Yep, such a shame about the choice of focus for me too. It does fight for attention when most of the interest in this is elsewhere around the plane.
