Hi from the Critique Club

You asked for this shot to have a comment from a member of the Critique Club.

I thought that this shot was totally adorable. I gave this a 6 when voting and this is why.

You have every element going on here, your sharpness, POV, clarity is outstanding. The thing that totally killed it for me was the flower. If the flower had not been in there it would have been a straight 9-10.

I love the fact that the person was clearly seen, but it was a challenge to see if you could hide this person, which , in a way, was done, but not hidden enough for DPC

I think that the set up on this shot was excellent and this is a picture that anyone would love to hang on their wall.

Great photo, but I don't see how this fits the challenge. 5

This is a wonderful portrait with nice contrasts and an adorable subject.
It is not, unfortunately IMO, an "otherwise person-less" photo. The colored flower against the desat rest of the shot is clearly the main subject. But the baby is the real story, and is in no way hidden.
Very creative, and nicely done, just dnmc a bit for me.

you have a cute Waldo here. All this b&w lines are doing pretty well in this. Nicely work

Very cute, very clear. Not sure it fits the description of the challenge, though (hide a person).

perhaps for the challenge the "waldo" presence is a bit too much important

Really cute photo but doesn't seem to fit the challenge idea as well as others.
