    Hi, Peter. I commend your effort. I think your first image starts getting somewhere that the other two do not. You create a relationship between the sign, which grabs our attention first, and the out-of-focus slide.The fact that the sign obscures the duck's face adds to the impression, and the alignment of the foreground tape, duck, slide and dark vertical tree draws the elements together. If you are familiar with W. Eugene Smith's Minimata photographs, you may recall the one of the fish wrapped in newspaper in the foreground with an out-of-focus home in the background. It works as a metaphor for the entire theme of the essay. Your first image starts to get at that. Shaping the composition during enlargement can bring the idea forward more clearly.

    The other two do not show that potential to me; to my eye, the compositions (more the second than the third) are searching for a unifying idea.

    Tuco, 6x6, Alan, Philip: Thanks for your comments.
    Tuco: Thanks for the PhotoShop/scanning suggestions, these seemed close enough without adjusting for posting, if I make real darkroom prints (probably will) I will pay more attention to contrast, burns and dodges.
    Philip: Particular thanks for the time you took to provide constructive critique. I also like the first image best. I actually took that image twice, changing aperture so that one would have max depth of field, and the other reduced DOF. The one I posted, with reduced DOF, was the one I preferred too. I might have tried some other points of view, but the ground was a mix of mud and puddles, so I felt restricted (I know a true artist wouldn't have cared, what can I say?) As for the other two, the Dodge Field image is the most documentary (i.e. least visually interesting compositionally) but I rather like the second due to all the verticals; if I print that for real, I will tone down the contrast and do some dodging of the darkest areas.

    Photographed in June last year, printed late last year, but finally matted for presentation this evening after ordering a bunch of new mats for panoramic prints. Shot in Ocean Springs, Mississippi with my Noblex 150U:
