Great photo. But I would have prepared a color one if I were you because it would be breath taking.
9/10

Here's mine:

8/10 - like the symmetry, its well exposed and nice depth of field.

9/10
That's some really good macro work. The eyes and antenna are in sharp focus, and I like the overall composition. The cut off antenna is a bit of a drag - maybe crop a little tighter on the top to make everything close in. I think I would like to see a bit more side lighting and less front lighting.
Was it cold, or drugged or just tired?

Was this freelensed? I could only assume so. I like the shot/color/clarity, but I don't see the blur/half bokeh particularly adding anything to the shot. It doesn't take away either, I'm just impartial to it really.

8/10. I think if the bottom right were in focus where the bus? and people are, the tilt shift/freelense would have been better served (with a purpose), opposed to just the tops of the buildings arbitrarily.


here is one I freelensed today

I do like it, although there is a little too much unnecessary space in my opinion. As well, the focal points to the right are not as defined as could be (but I understand that nature includes wind that is constantly moving these things around). Just a thought, did you try cropping out the top and left third of the photo?
8/10

I personally love this shot. The B&W, the blur effect from the people in motion, and the landscape in general. Not sure what else you could've done. A little more contrast? That's being picky though. Well done 9/10

7/10 - I like the mood and the processing, but not really keen on the crop - would prefer the feet further from the bottom and a bit of the right hand side cut out to move the people towards the right of the frame.... Generally pretty good though

5/10. I like th subject, but it is just too underexposed - I struggle to see details in the black. I'm also impartial to the crop.

Solid photo with a cool looking subject. I was so distracted by the blown out sunlight behind him though. 7.5/10

7/10
it seems like the subject is the bird, but it's not exactly clear. if it is indeed the bird, i would have personally shot the front of the bird, instead of the back, and i would have shot much tighter. maybe this water fountain is some special water fountain which you wanted to include in the photo, i'm not sure. your photo should have a clear focal point.

8.5/10. I really like symmetry photos and this works well. Don't know if the red flower was incredible luck or post prepossessed, but it was nice touch. 'Just wished there was a little more color scheme.

The effect of the fence mesh in the foreground works well, however this should have been shot landscape to capture the mood rather than trying to get that flag in as well ( I know, it's a patriotic thing....). Appears the camera was front focusing, judging by the grass, and seems a little too saturated. 6/10

Solid concert shot. B&W was the way to go. If you wanted to focus more on the singer you could've cropped out the guitarist to the left (your preference). But in all honesty, this photo is nice as is. LOVE the lighting on his face from above.

8.5/10
