  1. I love the inlay of imagery here. They both have a very melancholic attitude to them. The first reminds me of a sad sailor story where he has dedicated his life to the see and left the love of his life behind. I think the second, has the same sort of feeling. But I can’t articulate it. I think that by having an image in the sail, it sort of alludes to a memory or something worth saving that can no longer be obtained. Both are beautiful. I love the imagery. However, I would put the sail boat in a different setting. The carpet is distracting and brings the dreamy atmosphere of the ship into conflict with the reality of the room.

  2. I enjoy the idea of a photograph within another photograph. I’m especially drawn to the first image because of the subtle portrait. I think the placement of the boat is a little distracting. It might become more of the focal point if you eliminate the background all together.

  3. I really like your photos. I like how there are photos inside the photograph. The sail boast adds great shape to the photo. I think it would be cool to see the photo of the women in black and white. I really like the brightest in the two photos. Great job.

  4. This is such a cool idea and reminds me of collaging photos together to make a larger image. I like that you combined the real object with the still image just in the sail, its like that small boat has its own memories and stories to tell. The bottom images is very interesting and I didn’t even realize until the third or fourth time looking that the boat in the image on the sail is the same boat in the large picture. It’s those layers to the idea that make it so cool and thought provoking.
