::: Critique Club :::

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

First Impression - the most important one:
Doesn't seem quite to fit the challenge .. and there is an issue with the lighting ...

Interesting with the two of them in the same part of the frame ... cropping hte lower part of the frame removes the lighting distraction and may have helped ... creating the impression of seeing more of the females face.

Not sure if it meets the challenge ... but is a lovely shot ...

"Photograph a portrait that says something about the subject within the framework of their own environment."

Technical (Colour and light):
Here are some of the issues ... the bottom of the skirt is lit well .. and the wall behind them is lit along with her arm ... but there seens to be a need to light her and emphasise what she is doing there ....

To grow its vote?:
Think about the challenge in an exact manner and then go and shoot .. this is a great shot just not a natural environment ... is a great shot for before a dance .. or something like that ...

Godo work .. you have a great eye and an awesome portfolio building up .. keep it up.

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

You do good work from what I have seen.

This image would of done so much better with a little more forethought on your part.

As a viewer, I must be convinced of your intentions or all is to waste.

Good luck in the future.

Wish at least one of their faces vere visible, that or this was taken wider because my eye is drawn towards the bottom of the dress the way this is composed.

Very nice, moody photo. To add impact maybe have the girl lean against the wall with her hands down beside her and palms against the wall.

Nice colors, though there are some blown highlights on the girl's arm and shoulder.

where is the portrait?

This to me seems like a candid and not a portrait. I like it, but doesn't quite suit the criteria for me. Good luck.
