What Holds Us Apart? by Ryelleblitz What Holds Us Apart? by Ryelleblitz
What holds people apart?

A simple physical barrier, like that of the Berlin Wall?
An emotional barrier, where a rush of hate and antipathy mean that people find it difficult to stay in the same room?
A contextual barrier, in which a person had been raised to hate?

I like the colors and the composition of this quite a bit. Love how the composition is echoed in the barbed wire in a sort of limited fractal.

The depth of field bugs me a bit though. Feels like the background buildings either need to be in focus or completely out of focus, but the limbo they're in is just a little... unpleasant.

Hey thanks for the critique! A lot of people don't put much more thought into stuff other than "I like this" or "ohhh pretty" (:

I actually wouldn't have ever noticed the pattern of the barbed wire; I love what other people notice though. Kinda forces a new perspective!
Same with the focus actually; I rarely add extra blur simply because I despise seeing other people over do it. I concur though, I might update this one day (:

What city is this? I tried a similar idea to this a few weeks back but it didn't turn out as well as yours has. Great photo :)

That's Brisbane!

I thought (brisbane) was on a beach (I'd never been there before).
Turns out, no beach. (surprise.) I settled for photographing some of the buildings instead (:
And thank you! (:

I thought so. That might even be the same fence :P
Yeah the Brisbane beaches are a fair way out from the city (and in truth, they're not that good). The gold coast or the sunny coast are the places to go for beaches
You're welcome :)

Ah, it was somewhere in the city... somewhere maybe kinda near UQ? A big hole in the ground... (:
