Greetings from the Critique Club!

I like this photo. Your nephew is very cute and doing the kind of thing that people like to see, which is acting uninhibited.
The overexposed bg highlights him well, and there is a lot of good greyscale going on. However, as you may have seem from the front page, photos featuring landscapes, urbanscapes, mountains, buildings etc are all what did well here. It's more a matter of the wrong challenge for this image than it being a poor image. The HDR effect is very strong in the details of his jersey's letters, for example, and gives a slightly surreal aspect to his face - where shadows would normally fall, there are light areas, which I think confuses the eye as it's looking for that shadow. Especially in a human face! HDR really does seem most at home in mountains, street scenes etc. I got soundly kicked in this challenge too, so don't feel too bad :-)

So, good work keeping the photo simple and not too busy.

So we meet again, Tabrez...hehe...;-)

Ok. I can see why you took this shot and get some idea as to what you wanted. There is indeed plenty of rope, and a lot of it is in focus, but it is a light-coloured rope competing with a flag that has a large white area in it, against a very light-coloured sky. So the rope gets lost in the shuffle. Had the sky been bright blue or even dark loomy grey with clouds, it would help to show off the rope to advantage. The coloured areas of the pic could use a little hit of saturation. ISO 400 is understandable if you're shooting something black or very dark coloured in these conditions, but with so much white you don't want to jack up the ISO needlessly. Also a high ISO and a smallish aperture, like f8, are cancelling each other out. ISO 200 and f5 or f5.6 should have been enough for this shot.

If you don't have PS Elements or some similar processing program, I suggest checking your camera's settings for colour etc and adjust them there to get the most from images that are straight out of the camera. I can see that you are now taking advice, so please continue to shoot and to learn from both commenters and critiques!

good idea but more attention is on the colourful flag than the rope.

Comment by gipper11:
The right side is blown out a bit and the left side is underexposed making parts of the rope hard to see, also I would like to see the focus on the rope much better, it is mostly out of focus/soft.
