I think this would be better if a few more of the flowers were in focus at the bottom left to balance it out. That being said I do like the image. 6

Greetings from the Critique Club.

Hi Elizabeth,

I think you already have a useful distribution of comments here (and a few less useful ones). From a voting perspective this probably sufferred as a result of the relatively high number of similar shots in the challenge. I think Yanko assumed this was submitted by a guy.

Te overall composition here suffers due to the unnecessary stuff in the background, makign it too busy. It wouldn't have been too much effor tto move the stuff behind the toilet for presentation sake. I also think you could have made more of the two models; either by showing their faces, or excluding the chopped-off hand and blurry hand.

Technically I think you struggled with lighting. I see a high(ish) ISO and a slow shutter-speed. even if the camera was mounted on a tripod, you still captured soem subject blur. It probably would have helped to open the aperture a bit wider, or further raised the ISO. Of course more light would also have helped.

I see you paid a bity of attention to the colours. They seem a bit muted to me. Which colour space did you save this in? Always make sure that shots to be published i=on the web are saved in sRGB. This is covered in a DPC tutorial if you are interested.

It is my hope that these insights are helpful and constructive. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique. And please remember to mark it "Helpful" if you found it so. Good luck with future challenges.

Cheers
Paul

Comment by Valdo:
IMHO the composition looks too busy and distracting. On the other hand, nice colors and shallow DOF
