Great Manamo 2008-01-09 12:27

Hello Sam,
I've followed this series for a while now. I liked how you explored many facets of this sport/game. At first, I was wondering where you were going with that, but I finally liked the idea very much.

This one is my favorite, probably THE favorite. It has a visual impact, nice lines, nice colors. I'm pretty sure it was on purpose that the tree followed the same line as the line and the man, and I'm also pretty sure that it was on purpose that the line was not perfectly horizontal. Although I like the idea of the tree, I can't say the same about the line orientation. For me, either it's oblique, either it's horizontal to give a good visual appeal.
I think the aperture was a little too wide. You were a little short on the focus zone and I think the focus is over Logan's head...
I think you had a huge dust on the sensor (the foot)...It diminishes the quality of the shot a little and that would be easy to fix...

Finally, like I told, I like this whole series and I liked the initiative and the goal you fixed for yourself. However, I wonder if each picture can stand alone without the theme. For me, a series seen as a whole give strength to each picture individually. But, for this, each picture must be able to stand for itself without the theme. 2-5-7-10-11 really were able to stand for themselves. I'm not sure about the others. I know, each of them bring a new concept around the slacklining sport...It's just my 2 cents. I hope you won't mind my comment...

Have a nice day,


I forgot...the watermarks are not too bad, but could be even less visible...If it was me, I might have considered removing the one on the foot and 2 or 3 on the tree...
