Howdy from the Critique Club!

You got lots of great comments on this, and I think you placed wonderfully in the challenge.


I liked the simple composition of this image. It focuses the viewer on your subject and message. I felt, however, that the camera was too close to the subject and I would have wanted to view this scene from a little further back. I would not have complicated the background or any with this, but might have chosen a lighter bg, or better light bg if there was too much black in the image from moving further away.

Colour and lighting

I think the lighting on your subject is well done, but i find myself looking for a little more light on the subject, especially near the right arm/right side would have been useful to even it out a bit. It is a bit dark and seems to trail off on that side. This also seems to affect the focus there which isn't as clear as the rest of the photo.

OVERALL, I think this was a very well done image. It would also work quite well in black and white as the colour isn't particularly vibrant or essential to the message of your image.

Congratulations on a well done image! :)

A nice image. Should have placed much higher. Keep batting away.

Hahahahaha....nice concept...lack of contast on her hair vs the background is problematic.....perhaps a shot from to POV of her looking in the mirror....hey you get a 7 for originality....

I was expecting more of this type of shot, but most of the entries focus around alcohol. Well composed.

Really good. Great focus. I can't think of much of a complaint, except maybe crop out the numbers on the shirt. GOOD ONE!!!
