|Greetings from the Critique Club
Was that this really doesnít seem to meet the challenge.
Technical (Comp, lighting, color, focus):
The composition on this seems a bit cluttered, especially with all of the background elements. I would suggest trying to isolate your main subject a bit more to draw the eyes to it.
The lighting is a bit harsh, likely due to time of day and the high iso. I would suggest for this shot to drop the f-stop down around 5.6 or so to get some background blur and definitely lower your iso to 100, especially in bright daylight.
The focus is fine but as already mentioned I would drop the f-stop to get the background out of focus.
This shot really didnít fit the challenge and that is likely why you received numerous 4 and lower votes.
If you are new to photography I would suggest reading up on the relation of aperture, shutter speed and iso. Also keep entering challenges, as that is how you will continue to grow. I hope to see more entries from you. If you look at some of the recent ribbon winners you will see that their first entries finished similar to yours.
