Satin Doll

Satin Doll
by graphicfunk

Comment:
Likes: good focus on the eyes. The satin/silk headwear provides a good transition from the raw white background to the flesh tones of the face. The shadows on the face bring good depth to the skin and bone structure.

Dislikes: the expression seems vacant, I would have preferred to see more emotion, or makeup done to make the model look more porcelain or mannequin-like to match the vacant expression.

SHOWER
by AlexSaberi

Comment:
Likes: Good definition on the central back. I like the way the towel blends with the background, tying the model and background together. The eye is a prominent point of focus.

Dislikes: the pose feels contrived and forced, while the shadows of the arm across the back detract from the natural form of shadow there. The cleavage competes with the eye for attention. The highlights on the shoulders and between the arm and body detract from the overall form of the body.

Got Food?
by Jason_Cross

Comment:
Likes: My eye goes immediately to the red cap, then to the white lights. The immediate knowledge that this is a fridge keeps my eye within the frame.

Dislikes: The bottom right corner elements are distracting, as is the fridge operating sticker in the top left.

Comment:
Likes: The control over DOF, the attention the horse is giving to the frame, and the distant elements of the fence as contrasted to the coloring of the horse and the grass. All the elements carry a similar coloration, which binds the image well.

Dislikes: May not have been anything you could have done about it, but my eye is drawn to the edge of the fence line pretty quickly, taking me away from the portrait subject. Not having a bridle on the horse would have continued the isolated natural feel of the frame.

Comment:
Likes: lighting on the hair, sharpness of the lines around the shoulder
Disklikes: the left of the frame is lost to the overblown white while the shadow on the eyes loses the key area of focus in a portrait.

A strange cup of tea

A strange cup of tea
by henning

Comment:
Likes: Strong focus on the rim of the glass, color variation between the tea, the highlights, and the white. The slight shadow at the base of the cup carrying the color of the tea with it.

Dislikes: My eye goes to the bubbles first, which are out of focus. The loss of definition on the top of the handle. DOF could have been a bit better controlled.

Reaching Out

Reaching Out
by Sunshine86

Comment:
Likes: The yellow draws the eye immediately, since it's the odd color in the exposure, and that splays out via the petals to the rest of the frame. Nice DOF use to limit focus across the exposure.

Dislikes: the curli-cues/ribbons in the bottom half are vague enough that they don't draw my eye immediately following the flower, which leads me to exit the top of the frame instead of follow to the next textural sensation. If these were a little more harshly lit to draw a stronger shadow (like the one under the petals, middle right) they would provide stronger lines to pull the viewer into the bottom half of the frame.

Comment:
too oversharpened, which has caused a halo effect.

don't touch my caboose
by skewsme

Comment:
I enjoy the color saturation and framing, but the lost detail because of the shadow at the end of the train loses too much for me.

Rio Grande

Rio Grande
by jfwolpert

Comment:
great colors, but the DOF loss in the foreground needs to be managed, as does the strong reflection off the right hand side of the train.
