The clutter her doesn't bother me that much. It is busy but it seems to me that each item in the photo draws the eye back to the subject. Well done. V

Chris, angles is what I saw too when I took this picture! There is almost every geometric shape in this picture, down to the circle on the fan. You have a wonderful eye Chris, because you saw it....

I'm going to bear that in mind Phil. The setting of f8 was the P mode choice, and here I was not thinking about DOF, because I wanted the context. The background merger was apparent to me when taking the picture, but I could not solve it with vantage. DOF is something I will think about next time.

What about selective focus? That can sometime help simplify a cluttered scene such as this one.

One of those situations Phil where no angle was going to work. There was simply too much clutter in the room. I fealt this was the only angle that worked becasue you get to see part of his face and the majority of the room, which had to be in for context.

The guy looks as if he is dressed for the beach, but here he is getting his tan from an open, yet barred window ten feet away. It is an incongruous concept, but the photo would have been more effective if you had been able to move your camera down lower, so we would be down where he is, and where you might have avoided that facial merger with the fan.

Excellent work. So much detail and interest in such a simple, mundane scene. Perfect choice for desaturation. There is already enough detail in the various patterns formed by angles and texture throughout the frame. Vote
