Wondering if this image is too simple to be intriguing or even interesting.

Technical Details


Hi Alan – Yes, I think this is great! I would be happy to have something like this in my portfolio. I also have no idea what I am looking at, which I appreciate. Since you said shimmer, I am assuming that means water sparkles or something similar. You could consider a crop off the bottom, although I think the full version you shared works nicely, too. I also think you could clean up a few speckles in the main dark channel to make it feel just a bit more graphic. I think this could also work flipped horizontally, as that flow works nicely, too. Otherwise, I think this works really well as an abstract photo.

Thank you for sharing this photo for my guest critique!

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for your kind and encouraging words. It has been such a privilege to have you critique our photos.

Kind regards,

Impressionistic, stylized, abstract, alternating motion and stillness… I find it both intriguing and interesting.

And beautiful!
