"Old School Tea Pot"

Critique Style Requested: Standard

The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.


I was walking around before my shoulder surgery and saw this simple image. For Fun I took a few frames !!! Very sunny day.

Specific Feedback

Very subjective image !!! I saw the simple vibe of the old tea pot and used Adams seven zones ideas to edit the image. Make it have that old school film vibe. Lost a little detail in editing but I got the whites and the blacks I wanted.

Technical Details

ISO 100 shutter 400 f14 edited in Photoshop with high contrast vibe in mind.

Interesting image, Gil. The stark shadows are interesting. To my eye, the teapot feels a bit cramped in the frame and I could see just adding some black all around.

Thanks for showing interest. I just came in tight and less background.
