contest at art museum

This looks like a fun contest and I love the impressionists. But I am baffled by the entry in third place called "The Cyclist Lunch". Is there something wrong with me that I don't see the greatness of this one?? It isn't a good representation of photography, photo retouching or photo art in my opinion. Take a look and let me have it if Im completely wrong??

Re: contest at art museum

Thanks for pointing this site out to me. Just entered myself (not shown yet, and when it does, not quite pointillistic enough, but oh well; lol).

Yeah, that image looks pretty lame all around.

My personal choice is "Rome - Sidewalk Restaurant Scene". Not taken by much that I see there. But, hey I haven't entered so I can't complain much right?

Re: contest at art museum

I liked "Rome street scene" well enough to give it 5 stars --I also like the current leader "Friends enjoy Autumn foliage".

lkroll---which one is yours --I want to have a looksee---
Renoir was not really one of the impressionist who did the pointillist style. I call them the dot dot guys. Monet and Pissarro were big on dots.

"Garden Talk" is one of the newer entries and I gave that one 5 stars too. The palette is very much like the Renoir that was intended to serve as inspiration "The Rowers Lunch"---

Re: contest at art museum

I still don't see mine. Wonder if I posted the wrong size (I sized mine as 800X600) or I did something else wrong (gave them my email adress and all and never got a response from them yet). Oh well.

By the way, I really like your interpretation.

Re: contest at art museum

Maybe it's not good enough for their review. Don't see a problem sharing it here (might need some pointers). It's a capture that I did a few years ago of my Brother, Sister-in-Law and nephew.

Re: contest at art museum

Very nice ---like and bright --lots of color like Renoir. I think you should try saving for web device. That's what I did and I don't think its too small. At least you can click on it and open a larger view of it.

I seriously doubt they rejected yours ----from the looks of the one in third place I don't think they are very discriminating at all. they might reject nudity or something offensive but if they took "The cyclist lunch" they'll take anything. Try uploading a smaller version.

Next month is Van Gogh. That should prove to be a challenge.

Re: contest at art museum

Yeah; I noticed. I've been emulating Van Gogh on and off for two years now, so hopefully I can do justice to that theme when it comes around.
