Greetings from the Critique Club and a Happy New Year Giorgio!

Congratulations on your Top 10 finish!

Composition:

I\'m not sure how to critique this image! I think your composition is excellent. Your pose really made me laugh, definitely that of someone who needs a change of career!

Technicals:

The HDR effect you have going here really suits the image and with the leafless trees the colours and tones your post processing has given really make the image come to life! Not really a lot else I can say about this!

Sorry for such a short critique!

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

- Natalya :o)

I like the editing. It might be nice a little less desaturated or something.

This is really interesting pp, the model looks like a cut-out and placed. Very nice editing. Yet, I don't really make the conection about being clumsy. Still a very nice image.

"Clumsy" or "Clueless"? He looks really like he doesn't know where to start.

seems like you still have something to learn about gardening. good colors, background a bit to soft IMO

This is really great! I like the HDR look. And the barren winter look is really appealing to me. One of my favorite so far! 10
