Greetings from the Critique Club...

Hi Sarah...

I don't believe I have had the pleasure of commenting/critiquing any of your work before...

This image fits the challenge. The score you received shows a below average result overall. I believe that your score probably reflects the overall 'quality' of the photograph for the most part. Unfortunately, here at DPChallenge, the general populous prefers crisp and clean images. They don't really look beyond that to examine your idea and your thought process as much. This is an unfortunate fact though. Sad but true.

As I looked at your profile and noticed that you are a 16 year old female, I can see the relevance of this photograph quite easily. That information, however, is not avialable to the challenge voter. Since it is early in your 'career' here at DPChallenge, I will give you a couple suggestions that will help improve your scores.

1. Strive for crisp and clean photographs. If your camera struggles with this concept, use a tripod ALWAYS.

2. Never use your flash as a light source for a photograph.

3. Simplify your 'subject' and fill the frame with it.

Cheers and good luck :)

John Setzler

This image suffers from a bit of noise from the low light. Personally I'm not fond of the composition.

I gather this message isn't meant for me? The focus seems a little soft, but that's what you may have been going for?

very nice but needs more light - too much noise.

Me?? :)
In all seriousness, I like this shot, and the lighting, but I wish you had someone in the other half! The image is a bit blurry also.

A nice idea, but your lighting is too low, and the camera was unable to capture the detail and sharpness necessary for the image. Try more ambient light with the same exposure length, or lengthen the exposure some but shade the visible ligt sources so you don't get spots of bright white. I might suggest cropping the nightstand out as well, it's a little out of place.

cute... the WB seems off a bit tho & maybe crop off from the left a bit with perhaps a different angle.

The Idea to me is real good. the light was a big issue in this shoot.
