Greetings from the Critique Club...


This is a nice study in simplicity. The subject contrasts nicely with the environment and has a nice isolation as well. I can't really offer you a lot of critique beyond my general like for the image. I think it's very well done.

As I look at your camera settings, I ask myself a few quesitons though. Your +2/3 exposure compensation was a good start here for sure with the white background, but I'm struggling to understand the choice of f/14 @ 1/25" on the exposure. It seems like a smaller aperture would be in order since there is no depth to the image and depth of field would not be an issue. Shooting that same image at f/5.6 would have allowed a shutter speed up around 1/200" or so. You don't have any visible camera shake in this photo, but you could have at 1/25". Just some thoughts :)

Nice shot, good work on properly exposing the subject, while still retaining some detail in the snow.

Very nice. I would have made the black border a bit smaller so it does not compete with the picture.
