I definitely see marked improvement for your last assignment. I see many more interesting photography ideas in this photograph than in your last two photographs. I like seeing this level of progression in photographs. For starters, your composition is much cleaner and noticeably more organized. You’ve used both vertical and horizontal lines in your photograph which also help create very noticeable shapes. Most importantly you’ve also managed to “color simplify” your photograph by showing only a limited array of colors. Great job. This is a 100% improvement for your last photograph.
My only concern with this photograph is that it lacks a central object to serve as your main area of interest within the frame. There is nowhere for the eye to rest or focus on. The eye simply wanders around the photograph examining a series of secondary object because it can’t located a primary object to focus on. So while artistically your composition is good, it lacks that central object that will hold your viewers attention. It can be a person or and object but your audience will want to be told a story and therefore they need that central piece to focus on, otherwise your audiences eyes will wander out of the photograph.
Other than that… great work!
