Critique by TheMadMulatto Dec 17, 2013, 5:09:41 PM
This composition and all its details make me think of scientific findings;
more a consideration of measurable evidence than a sum or solid conclusion - be it mathematical or philosophical.
That alone makes this a terrific subject of debate for open-ended responsiveness to imagery and meaning.

The numbers that appear at the bottom and all the white lines are GROUND and GAME markers.
The shadow length of the tree and it's lack of leaves on its branches are TIME markers.
The cookie-cutter windows are relevant as comparative SPACE and LOGISTICS markers.

In general, this first appears as a photograph of an institution.
A place where individuals are gathered, organized and trained.

Then again, maybe it's a small factory where things are made.
One in the same, if you think about it.

The windows remind me of film slides that belong to an archaic projector.
Again, a reference to time and organized education.
With the hues and other subliminal attributes, the image might give a hint that this place is a summer-fun
recreational center that closes during the winter months.
Depressive, in that light.

It's obviously not a warm day in summer
and the day is either beginning or ending.
That bends the emotive response towards a small amount of apprehension regarding change...
maybe a morose response if there is a fear of cold weather, timely ends and structural abandonment.

Clearly, not an upbeat piece of art,
but definitely something to ponder over if the emotions of any viewer are seeking refuge, orientation and reflection.

Then there is the comparison of the organic growth vs. the man-made architecture.
"Who's winning" can be a great perspective to begin a philosophical discussion.

WOnderful work.
A meaningful capture, indeed!

I'd do some slight brightness/contrast adjustments to sharpen the colors it a bit to master it, but a great shot nonetheless :)
