Hi from the Critique Club,

First of all, congratulations on your journalistic eye. Sure, technicals aren't perfect in this image, but your timing and ability to predict the shot are what make this image quite a good one. I really like how you captured the expression of the woman in the front looking back at the trophy. Editing rules prevented you from adjusting this image in post-processing, but I think it would look quite good in a newspaper as a tight vertical crop.

I think ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' petrakka said it quite well:

With that said, I think you've done about as much as you could have for the situation. Based on your aperture, it looks like you were at about 50 mm (assuming you were as wide open as possible for the focal length you were at), so you were probably too far away to use on-board flash. Good foresight to maximize your ISO to get a reasonable shutter speed; noise isn't always ideal, but any more blur would have probably made this a toss away shot. (And in this case, the noise is negligible.)

Good job here. You've done your job by capturing the moment nicely.

Regards,
Geoff

I love the energy of this! Not sure if a paper would use it due to the "blur" but that's what makes it a very engaging, energetic shot to me.

the central focus works, but it would be better photojournalisn style if sharp across the frame
