I took this photo in hopes to get the point across.. I like the sepia look to it, I did it with natural lighting.

Greetings from the Critique Club :)

This photo seems to meet the challenge without much problem at all. I think it falls short photograpically for one primary reason. The image contains no depth or texture. These elements certainly are not requirements for a photograph, but they do seem to work nicely together to create more visual appeal.

I also think the depth of field here may be too shallow and in the wrong place. I can't really do anything but guess at that since the exposure data isn't posted with the image.

The score you received seems to indicate that the general population did not find a high level of interest in the image. I think the composition and subject choice probably contributed to that. It's rare that two-dimensional images do well here. You need that third dimension of depth :)

It seems to be over my head- but then the simplicity is there. and there is no connection really- adn thats the thing. so i guess it works.

Love the sepia tones. This photo is not really in focus, but I think it totally works. This picture has a lot of expression, and is far from boring. Nice work
