Critique Club Critique

(1) COMPOSITION (CONTENT) This is a wonderful photograph. The composition is right on, and adds a real power to the feeling being displayed. The blue color cast adds to this as well. The grainy-ness almost give the appearance of being underwater, they could pass as bubbles.

(2) BACKGROUND The background is very interesting. It gives the photograph a very textured feeling. The leading lines from the background lead right to the face and especially the open mouth.... very strong emotion.

(3) CAMERA WORK ,TECHNICAL I love how you created this photograph. The overall dispair is so evident.

(4) DIGITAL PROCESSING ,TECHNICAL Your post processing is very good. Very effective cropping, leaving only the important details in the photograph.

(5)MEETING THE CHALLENGE You have done a marvalous job of meeting the challenge in an original and refreshing way.

(6) MY OPINION ON THE PHOTO The subject here is wonderful. The way you executed it is great. This was one of the best of the dispair pics. I do not understand why this did not score better. Many times the most creative photos are not appreciated by the masses.

to much noise going on here, nice idea, just a little busy for despair...
post edit got in the way of this one...

Can't say exactly why, but this shot makes a great visual impact to me. Maybe because of the color, or because of the nice grain - it has feeling! Thanks for sharing - 9
