SHADES OF AUTUMN By VAL POHIO GRADE: NOT ACCEPTED
Congratulations on a highly selective composition and experimental treatment. However two faults in my opinion led to its down grading. Firstly, a slight trim off the right hand edge would have eliminated the annoying higher tone in the top right hand corner. Secondly the image needs more tonal contrast to increase recession Would recommended you adddeeper tone to the two left hand trunks to help anchor the composition a little more.
