1- face a bit blurry, background is distracting

2- probably the strongest, but focus seems to be on his shirt as opposed to his face

3- too much dead space on the left for my liking, he's also not sharp. if you panned the camera left a bit it might have been stronger

4- decent but the reflections and chromatic aberration kind of bugs me

5- good moment but again, not sharp, what shutter speed/aperture?

6- awesome pup! not sharp on the eyes, but again great moment


another thing I'll say is to maybe make your logo in black and white for black and white images, as it's very distracting.

A constant theme in all of your image is a bit too much contrast.
1. I like this, but you cut off his foot!!!
2. I like this one this one the most. The Contrast is a bit high.
3. I like, but I would have put him at the end of the fence to have some lines(fence) lead to the subject which is the boy.
4. Eh. I like the colors, but I am very distracted with the reflections in the actual tank. is it more about the things BEHIND the camera or the actual gas tank??
5. Weird crop, would have him a bit more centered in the frame.
6. I LOVE DOGS! Enough said about that other than the high high contrast!

Nice work, keep it up!!

Ya gotta be careful with a 50mm lens as it will throw things out of perspective, like heads and legs. ;)

1,3 and 5 - I love them! They may not be perfect but it's only us photographers who worry about that!

Good work!

shoot with a bit smaller on the aperture - that way you will be more likely to get good focus results

I am either looking at different photos then you all are, or my eyes really are that bad now, but based on critique here on "focus', many of the masters of the craft would never survive the technical critique handed out. These aren't studio shots for crying out loud.

So here is my take on things. The technical stuff is important, only in that it doesn't distract from the message you are trying to send. Capturing the essence of the subject is far more critical and hard to do. The technical side should be almost a secondary concern. But instead, I see nit picking on technical issues as the focus here - not composition, subject, mood, color, tone, etc. This obsession on "sharp" is crazy... particularly when it results in over sharpened stuff that says "hey, I've been photoshopped".

The most world acclaimed photos have all kinds of technical issues, but they say something about the subject. I think you reached that bar in that none of the "technical faults" distract from the subject.

Just my opinion.... perhaps pixel peeping is where the "art" is heading.

#2 is the only image that stands out as exceptional. It works well.

#1 the framing and cropping of the foot weaken the moment.
#3 faces are more important than shirts
#4 not sure what your garage contains is helping the portrait of the bike
#5 not working: soft, odd composition, horizontal vertical subject
#6 a dog; bow wow; make sure to use a lens that can close focus;

above all; have a great time
