Greeting from the Critique Club from a fellow Tennessean Hank!

To be perfectly frank, this is an extremely tough image for me to critique as I really can't much add to what's already been said. Good composition and shadowing. The spacing is near perfect and was a great choice for this challenge - which your score of 6.2924 reflects. It has a nice flow from left to right as well.

As was mentioned, the tone is probably what kept you off the front page here. DPC voters really need that "pop" or "wow" to make them click a higher number. The bit of extra curl on the far right sheet is just a tad distracting as well.

Overall a very nice first submission that you should be proud of.

Thanks for the opportunity to critique this image Hank.

Cheers - Phil

Everyone, I appreciate your feedback. This was my first challenge. I've been watching on the sidelines for over a year. Hopefully, my skills will improve. See ya at my next challenge!

arngrimur, I agree the tone is really dull. The light was bad and thinking back, I could've tinted the whole photo another color. Live and learn. I appreciate your comment. Overall I'm happy with the placement, this is my first challenge.

Really great idea, but for my taste the corners should be tack-sharp. It would also have been good to bring out the paper's texture more prominently.


magnus...not sure what you mean by "tack-sharp"...what I was going for was the curl of the page and how the light could cast a shadow. I agree that the papers texture should be clearer...it was photographed on my kitchen counter in the dark - with a crappy light. Appreciate your feedback!
