::: Critique Club :::

Hi, my name is Kari and from the critique club.

First Impression - the most important one:
I love the capture of the colours .. and enjoy the silouette ... I have to say though I would have liked her to have a chin. Great pose ... and I being also afraid of heights think you are a mean photographer :)

Composition:
I really do like this with the bottom third corner capturing the model ... the use of the rosary also works well.

Subject:
Meets the challenge with an added hail mary.

Technical (Colour and light):
Looks like mainly the light from the window which is wonderful with a little from the front .. I think that is why I see a shadow from the leg, the picture is crisp and well maximised for immediate impact on viewing.

To grow its vote?:
This time I really can't understand the ones with the religous intonations I could understand the threes .. but really technically is great and interest is there .. so shoot the trolls ....

Summary:
Great shooting .. always enjoy critiquing your work.

If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via the PM system.

Cheers

Kari

If someone had told me I'd give an 8 to a silhouette in front of a stained glass window, I wouldn't believe them. But this is very nicely done. The mirroring of the cross on the necklace with the large cross is "crucial."

Cool colouring, really makes this shot work. Just wish her front face didn´t blend in with the window post but other than that nitpick, awesome. 8 from me.

Nice colors. The cross breaking up the shot into multiple frames is nice too.

Super colors and nice composition. However I think it would have been even better if more detail on the woman (rather than a silhouette) was apparent.

lovely silhouette which kinda rmeinds me or a previous ribbon winner image ;) good luck.

Great colors here! I like the silhouette, but wish the profile of her face wasn't blended into the dark divider of the window.

Very nice!

Very interesting, I like the use of the subject, she really adds to the composition.

wow the colors with her silouette is great
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 08:13:57 PM
I'm not sure that the window is framing the subject as much as it is the subject. but one hell of a picture 9 would be a 10 if the angle were a little different so that her face didn't blend with the part of the window.

04/28/2006 05:42:08 PM
rich colours, not sure what the girl is doing beside the cross.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/28/2006 08:59:21 AM
sorry, too busy

04/28/2006 07:20:47 AM
great work
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 06:55:18 PM
I like this a lot - the problem for me is that the front of her face coincides with one of the vertical struts - would shifting your position a touch have resolved that at all or maybe not. Also, I'm not so keen on the composition. Nice lighting, colour and idea though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 03:55:46 PM
beautiful abstract-like windows and colors! I'm not quite sure about the placing of the woman, because I can't see the silhouette of her face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/27/2006 07:16:12 AM
this is fantastic...hope it does well for you...this should get a top 10 in my opinion...hopefully a ribbon...9

what beautiful colors! this is simple and conveys a message.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2006 10:02:52 PM
Great idea. The cross is a perfect touch. Would be better if her mouth wasn't overlapping the dark area.

04/25/2006 09:18:19 PM
good silhouette. I wish the line of the nose and chin were visible

04/25/2006 03:18:03 PM
I love the simplicity of this photo. Your use of silhouettes and colors answer the challenge theme well... my vote is a 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/25/2006 01:37:33 PM
This is really nice. The colours are exceptional, the silhouette is great and it's different than most of the other shots in the challenge.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2006 11:48:22 PM
"WOW".....This is so colorful, and it even "Pops" as a thumbnail..... So emotional, and also so spiritual as well.....I love it, and give it a "10".....

Just lovely. Perfectly shot.

Needs to be rotated slightly counterclockwise, but beautiful. I had this idea myself and passed on it for lack of time.

Wonderful work, nice use of color, pattern and composition.

The human silhouette is too fragmented by the window frame parts, espcially her face.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2006 06:12:55 AM
This is a lot like one of my ideas I had for this challenge but I couldn't pull it off the way I wanted it. This is good, especially with the vibrant colors in the glass.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2006 12:50:13 AM
Love the colors of the stained glass. Good job of framing a silhouette
