Critique Club Review:

Meets Challenge well.

As others have already noted, focus is a bit soft on the left side. I believe this may have come from the wide aperature cutting down on your depth of field. If you had a tripod handy, a longer exposure at a smaller aperature, would have solved this issue. For a silhouette sharpness of the silhoutte is very important.

Borders are chancy here at dpchallenge. Some voters will take a picture down a notch or two, just because they are there. In this picture the border adds to the compositon, and does not compete with it.

The picture is cropped tight to the subject, but I feel the vertical format and tight cropping works well. But it did call attention to the softness of the plant.

I really enjoy the colors of the sky, and the overall presentation. With a deeper depth of field, for a sharper image, I would like this hanging on my wall.

Great capture. Composition is a bit tight on the subject but still a nice shot.
