I'm a little surprised to see this at 32nd. I had it placed much higher & was one of my picks for the home page result. A really wonderful photograph.

Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: It looks like your focus locked in on her curls, which are nicely crisp. I really wish that the focus was on her eyelids, with enough depth of field to include crisp lips.

Lighting: Very nice lighting. Between your lighting of the subject and your toning, you created a wonderful mood that matches nicely with your title.

Composition/Content: Also nice. I think that I would like to see just a little bit more of her eyes, but not a lot. Her pose and the emotion on her face fits very well with the band name that you chose.

My Opinion: I like it, and you finished with a very well-deserved score. I'd like to see the focal point shifted a bit, and perhaps a bit more of her eyes. Outside of that, I don't think that I would have changed a thing.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,

The three of them met in the lobby of a hotel that Julio was staying at, all of them with reconciliation on their minds. They found that they really clicked and gave up their fruitless quest when they realized by an amazing coincidence that one of them was a violinist, one a percussionist and the other a keyboardist, and that their voices harmonized like honey. Interestingly enough, their "Tribute" album was not a tribute to Julio at all, but rather to his daughter, Chabeli. All of them secretly think she is their child.

Yeah, they're a little crazy.
