Is this a good pic?

I took this pic like a year ago. There is this competition in photography called: resume the world in one pic.
now I didn t have time to try new pics but I remember having this one.
The idea here is that life offers you several windows and opportunities that would merge into your future. each choice equal with pros/cons and a new experience.
So do you think this is sort off gd or meh?
is this a good pic?

  • I took a contemporary art class for my general ed. I had to come up with these deep open-ended analyses on the most random shit. Half of the time I'd send a text to my stoner friends and they would give me some ideas. I'll give it my best shot and shoot you some questions that could maybe give you fresh perspective on the idea you are trying to convey.

    >It all leads to the same place.. what is to be described at the end of tunnel.. just death? Or could you describe it as as reaching a goal.. content with your state of mind.. pursuit of happiness all that phaggy shit.

    >I can depict a little bit of flaws in each and every one of them. Does the sole interpretation of that have sequential order, and if so, is it top in comparison to bottom? Are they differential with sustained outcome?

    >Would you differentiate top and bottom in correlation to socioeconomic status and opportunity... and if so, why?

    >What do the holes represent? Do they signify a wrong path or do they signify imperfection in every path?

    >The outskirt have the most imperfections, could you describe this to be the outcast of society and life?

    >Is this a continuous cycle of taking a new path time and time again? If so, from a purely logical standpoint, the most effective route would be to enter a new path from the back after taking your first. Is there any correlation between the two, from a chronological stance?

    >Remembering from a class I studied about electricity...

    An electrical current will flow through all paths, the greater amount of current is always flowing through the lowest-resistance route. Most of the time when people say "electricity takes the path of least resistance," they're referring to a circumstance where the routes differ a great amount in resistance, maybe I could compare it to a wet hand vs air gap. When one route has a significant difference in resistance, almost all of the current will flow through the other route.

    This could make for a decent analogy depending on where your interpretation stands.

    Hoping these questions broke down the solidity in your original interpretation and gave you some new ideas. Solidity should be ignored when trying to face projects like these because art is an abstract concept, polar opposite of logical reasoning. But ayyy.. still compared it to electrical currents.

      All I did was establish a visual by looking at it from an analytical perspective. My mind looks at her interpretation in the sense of conjecture. It's frail from my point of view because it stems only on the basis of feelings. In other words, I'm trying to add logical pieces to the puzzle that make sense to me.. I noticed flaws and disparities throughout. After that, I sort of created a mental list of each and everyone one of them. Then I attempted to individually infer them back to her interpretation with solidity by adhering logic into an analogy. I get brain anxiety and shit by trying to think like that lmao. This is my way or sort of naturally fixing it to where I'm mentally comfortable enough to depict. Like.. religion makes my brain uncomfortable for this reason to and this is why I'm agnostic. Yeah I'm rambling.. I think you get what I'm trying to say though.

      Ugh my mind /= after reading all that.

      Haha no deep doesn't necessarily mean poetic, more often then that deep refers to but isn't restricted to being of a philosophical or life lesson nature, deep often relating to those topics through deep and or critical/creative thinking.

      Lol I find this somewhat humorous because I'm the artistic one yet I give the few worded example.

      Personally I just see it as a cage, but the question is are you the prisoner inside or outside? and are you the guy who put the prisoner in there?

      Lol just think of religion as pie you can either take it and eat it or put it to the side.

  • Honestly, when I think about this picture in terms of opportunities/life decisions/etc, I find it pretty depressing.

    I mean... Every single track leads into the same chute of light at the end.
    So, the picture seems to be saying (to me):
    "Look, all this shit about yr own personal identity, and about finding yr place/niche in the world, is really just bullshit -- you're headed toward the same fate in the end, no matter what you do."

    •___________________•

    Like yeah, srsly... the picture seems to say "None of yr life decisions really matter in the end, because it's all going to turn out the same no matter what you do."

    ... sad.

    __

    BEFORE I read yr description, I saw the picture and thought of metalwork blocking the air duct leading to/from a prison cell.

    Like...
    ... You can escape from the cell, **IF** you figure out how to improvise a tool that will cut through the metalwork, AND **IF** you put in the sheer effort and time to actually cut through it, AND **IF** you can hide yr efforts from the prison guards long enough to not get caught before you escape.

    In that sense, it's sort of like the way I look at life. You CAN get out of whatever negative situation you find yrself in -- but, it might require tools that you have to build yrself, AND you might have to keep yr own efforts at self-improvement secret from various people.

  • The more focused one (the second) is better. Draws the viewer into your idea better. I think it's not bad in that the pic will have different meanings of how life is for different individuals. Black and white is always good for abstract photography.

      Try to get it either perfectly framed, with everything in perfect symetry (or just crop and tilt that one :D but it will lose quality)

      OR do it tilted and not symetric on purpose, and explain that in the text. Saying that life doesn't always look perfect as we would like it to be. That's life. ;)

    • 1mo

      Lol 😂

  • It looks alright. Try to go to some parks, you might get more inspired.
    This photo looks good, but not good enough, you captured the features of todays reality. More effort means more results, do few other clicks and you might have the photo you are after.

  • I think it's a very creative take on your topic and also a great interpretation given the industrial nature of the subject, or items photographed. I suppose you could also say that despite the appearance, or obvious over-use or damage of some of the windows, they lead to the same place in the end... so, who's to say that someone's path in life is wrong... it's just their path and we are constantly presented with multiple opportunities or options and choices in life...

  • Meh... I understand the idea behind it, I just don't feel like the picture captures that. If you had a bunch of metal tubing that had some shine to it and you had a landscape of something like blue sky with clouds or sunshine with a tree and grass or something like that all being dissected into separate images with different colors of light being reflected off the metal then maybe...

      so since the meaning can go in 2 different ways the it all depends on how the person interacts with it. and he projects his own mood thinking into it right?
      that makes it highly subjective

      But are you allowed to explain the idea behind otherwise I'm not sure if everyone would get it.
      And a tip for the next time; its important that the object that you're photographing is parallel to the frame of the picture (if that's makes any sense).

    • 1mo

      yea we need to add a description
      and I know! it s sort off bugging me too
      but I took it last year in a rush so didn t really take a proper angle
      and I don t have much time to work on a new pic nor do I have the equipment or skills to make it decent enough.
      so I thought an abstract one would do best in this case

  • Rather see u in a new pix.
    Shelves R just Ok.
