Greetings from the Critique Club

First Impressions:

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.

Well that's one perspective!

Rather meaningless image with no perspective. 4

I think a different angle with this would work better, maybe if you could of isolated the skeleton a bit more.

interesting, i dont see that the perspective adds anything, as it seems to be shot straight on

Not really seeing "perspective" here. Top of the photo is really blown out probably due to lighting and the time of day when you took the shot. I do like the PP coloring though.

I like the humour

seems the theme doesn't fit

A pretty fun image yet the perspective is somewhat plain as it is shot from straight ahead.
