Greetings from the Critique Club

Very eye appealing image here.

Strong colors in the background add to the grace and elegance of the statue. Although the fountain could be distracting at first glace but then it also appears to balance out the photo. I think the real problem is an area of overexposure to the fountain.

Lighting here is so so, there is some shadowing but not too much, the problem is an area of overexposure.

As for meeting the challenge there is definately grain here and I think the grain enhances this photo and actually makes it more appealing.

Nicely done.


DOF is used well here.

8 - Nice. Good subtle colors. Good use of grain/noise(?) for the Challenge. Criticism; not much, perhaps a tighter crop at the top, or a slightly sharper (ground up-ish) angle, may have made this a better shot in my opinion. I imagine it would look good b/w or sepia too, but I like that you left it like this. Perhaps even more grain too, not sure.
