9/10
The photo is great, but the watermarks are somewhat intrusive.

6/10, I like the over all picture but I wish there was more contrast in the buildings and the sky wasn't so milky.

I call these turds in the park. Great for the artist but this really looks like a snap shot. The silver posts and that house also takes away from the picture. Your sky looks a little odd with the dark area in the corner. 4/10

Running out of pics on flickr to post so heres one of my snap shots.

5/10 WB and exposure needs work but I like everything else about it.

Lets see how she does.

QUOTED IMAGE

How did you get the dog with that background. Furthermore, I am asking how you cut out the dog with all of his fur and everything and made it look like he was sitting in front of a backdrop. Did you do this in PSE?
Thanks,
Jen

the depth of field is a bit too shallow. Would be good to see the dog's face in complete focus. Nice framing, though. 6/10.

A festive time:

Really like the bokeh, how did you do that? I wish more of the bowl (?) was in focus and the straight black edge near your watermark is a bit out of place. Small criticisms of an otherwise excellent and eyecatching shot! 7/10

used a macro lens ..hence the shallow dof :(
I didnt have too much space to play with, hence the constraint.
The bokeh is made up of the colorful lights that you put up for christmas.

The trick is that she was sitting in front of a backdrop. I set up the lighting, do some tests on stuffed animals and then use treats to get her to sit where I want her. This set up was a single studio strobe with a 40 inch silver umbrella a 40 inch reflector and a hair light. She'll sit in the same spot for a 30 min if I keep feeding her treats.

Haha I see. Very good picture!
I was just wondering, because I have seen people cut out a subject and place it on a different background. And with hair like that, it would take an awful long time! I am aware of how to recompose photos in PSE 9, but was wondering if there was an easier way for things like this, because after all, it would take a whole lot with that hair :)

Don't worry about it. A lot of times people take pictures of what makes sense to them, they understand the surrounding and the stories behind such objects. For a stranger to come and see them in a snap shot it doesn't make as much sense to them as it would to you. With photography you want to try and paint a picture of the object, to convey the story behind it as the artist would and not just a photo of the object itself. I don't see anything in this photo that captures my eye.

Last shot above mine - I give 5/10 - nice composition but for me is too dark and that path doesn't really anything - maybe get lower and closer to the gravestones and then have the tower rising up..

Here's my entry:

I would say 8/10 for the photo with a 5/10 for lens choice. I am not a big fan of the fisheye landscape shots, but that is just me.

Here is my first one (sorry for the ISO12800):

Thanks - it's actually taken on my 24-70 at around 70mm but I took a load of shots and stitched them together again - I guess I could have another go at compiling them - there's 2 rows of shots - the bottom row was difficult because of the angle I had to get the camera at - hence the fisheye look.
