Greetings from the critique club :)

Well sorry, there is not much I can say about this image but echo most comments you already got.

First off, this is not a portrait as 99% of the DPC voters or most people would define a portrait, a portrait to me is of a living thing, most often a person. Not a picture of a statue. That would explain the extremely low score most people gave this picture.

Secondly, if you do not make the most of the allowed 640 pixles you get here at DPC, your score will also suffer, simply because it´s hard for people to see the image well compared to 99% of the other photos in the challenge.

Thirdly, the image quality is not very good, the image seems blurry and perhaps out of focus (hard to tell since it´s so small) and the sunset got badly blown hightligths.

The photo does have one thing going for it, I do really like the composition, nicely done and I like the negative space around the statue.

Again, sorry but if I had voted, I probably would have been one of those people who voted you a 1 and not because this is a bad photo but it simply doesn´t meet the challenge and is also so small and of poor image quality.

Kind regards from Iceland, Lárus.

Your subject is distant and out of focus. The photo is also on the grainy side.

just don't get it. The crop is definetely too tight. I can barely see what your subject is and it looks out of focus.

interesting for a portrait....

I'm not seeing "portrait" here. More like a still life, and areas of the sky are burnt out. The subject is not in sharp focus and shows no detail.

Not getting the challenge, at all, here.

The image size is a bit small, and there is not a whole lot to capture my eye, nice colors, but looks a tad bit fuzzy. I've been there myself....6.

This is not a portrait it is a landscape

Not really a portrait, very very small, and looks slightly blurred.

I'm sorry this is a nice picture but it is not a portrait. Definition from the English dictionary

"a pictorial representation of a person usually showing the face"
07/18/2007 07:19:42 AM
nice pic, just a shame its very small
07/18/2007 05:35:07 AM
