This photograph uses the focus, the subject’s eyes, to create a sense of mystery. Although the image accomplishes its purpose, there are several factors that prompted its exclusion from the project. The first problem is the abundance of color, which contradicts the dark nature of the other photographs in our project. Every photo in our project was selected for a reason, and this image wouldn’t fit into the theme. The second reason why this photograph was not selected was because of the distractions in the foreground of the newspaper. The bright colors demand attention from viewers, and distract from the focus which creates ‘mystery’. Another problem with this photo is the merger in the background formed by the tree and her head, which is just plain sloppy.
