Yes, under-exposed and vignetting is too strong. Too much dead space around, took me quite a while to actually figure out that there are two sets of hands on this photo. Crop closer on the belly and the hands. Otherwise, great capture 6/10.

Also, someone skipped this one which I think is a great capture... talk about being laced after calling yourself out! Guy doesn't even have his fingers on the trigger anymore. 9/10


Here's mine, attempt at promoting the old VS new.

Wish the modern building would go away so it leaves alone the vintage look of the brick building. Light seems a bit harsh but has nice colors, 6.5/10 IMO.

7/10 needs the top half of the car lighting up.... you've lost a lot of detail

7/10 looks like a snap shot with a shallow dof. a bit too much head room, somewhat poor IQ and a bit of noise.

For what the image is, I cannot find anything wrong with it. Exposure, composition, color, all looks good. Technically its fine. 10/10.

I like the mood and darker tones of green you got going. I don't see the bottom of the image adding anything. I would crop where the stick begins personally. dof, focus and bokeh are all pleasing. I might have bumped up the exposure ever so slightly, but it still looks fine as is. 8/10

7/10.

The color and overall composition seem to be going for a somber mood. As a result, the guy laughing in the background is kind of distracting. I feel like the image is a shade underexposed and I don't love the vignetting. Especially at the top left.

I would love to see this image with the main guy on the left third of the frame, and the people in the background not there.

I really love this image. I suppose you can do many variations of cropping here or maybe some sharpening on the buildings, but I like it just the way it is. Well done.
8.5/10

Nice simple photograph with nice lighting from the side. The things out of focus aren't out of focus too much, yet my eyes are still drawn to the two balls up at the front and tip of the pool cue. Nice, 8.5/10

Great colors, nice composition. Very minor quibble with the upper right, DOF is off (IMHO) and it's looking OOF in that area, although I know it's not really a focus issue.

8.5/10

Here is my entry. My wife, and 2 of my daughters while on vacation in Destin Florida as a wave crashed into them.
