Nice family portrait, soft and colorful with warmth to it. 8/10

Not sure what the subject is. But I love how it looks like a ladder leading into the clouds/sun. I like how the sun and area around the top of the ladder object is blown out. But the background on the lower third is pretty bland. 6/10

I really like the contrast and the coloring. Just a newbie here, so I don't know how judge too in-depth, but I would give it a 9/10, only taking a point off for the random shadow in the background. Shadowing is definitely a plus for the most part, but the one in the background doesn't seem to have a source in-frame (but that might just be me lol) Very nice!!

Here's mine from a recent trip to a local park. Just got my T2i a couple days ago, and it's my first camera that's better than an 8MPx phone camera lol

You are exactly right.. it's made by an artist and it's about 25 feet high.

9/10, very nice detail and composition, but after playing around with it in Photoshop, I'm thinking it could be improved with a little contrast enhancement, specifically making the lighter areas lighter. All around very nice, especially considering that you only started learning to use your camera a few days ago.

I like that a lot - good contrasting colours and subtle tones. Very simple but looks good.

Not a fan of the whole over all concept... I'd say 3/10

I really like the color/sharpness of the flag. But it kills me that it's just floating. I wonder how I'd look if it was zoomed out or recomposed to show the flag pole. or whatever it was attached to. It just looks different to me, but that's my preference. 7/10

That sir is a very well taken shot! Love the low angle, the composition is just spot on.
Only nit would be that front molar looks like it needs a root canal.
9-10

HI Jack,

Gorgeous light washing over spectacular landscape and a rainbow to boot, love the haze too what's not to like :D I'd might have been tempted to frame this so that the line between the land and the sky was just a little higher, but I'm the kind of fool who'd have also been tempted to scurry down the incline in search of a possible pot of gold at the end of that rainbow, so what of I know?!?! - LOL :lol:

Seriously: 9/10 :D

I love Silhouettes, 8/10 if the tree was more in the corner left it would be perfect IMO

Great portrait of a pretty lady, her head is a little too turned for my taste though. 8\10

Good exposure, would have liked it more if there was more interaction in between both subjects, and a litte more of of a spot light on the girls face. 7/10

7/10 I love the perspective and I don't think the water needs to be any more vivid. However, the steps on the stairs look undetailed and have an almost "paint bucket tool" quality to them.

4/10, Good composition, however the point of focus is off and you needed a lot more depth of field in my opinion :( Sorry to be so harsh
