I'm ok with 3 & 4 (except for the dead leaf on his head in 3), but 1 & 2 aren't working for me. In 1, you've changed the subject from the boy to the stick/log, and that's not really attractive or anything someone wants to really look at. #2 has no subject, and the grey/white are on the middle left is distracting. Not sure what the goal was with #2. I think if it wasn't so cluttered, and there was something to look at in 2, you might have something, but as it sits, not a keeper to me. Just my 2 cents.


If steroids are illegal for athletes, should PS be illegal for models?

I like the idea in #1, I just think it needed a better foreground item. Maybe his cape?
#2 I am kind of lost on, not really sure what to look at. I do like the golden color, would make for a nice backdrop.
#3 I think I would have liked better if he was making some sort of eye contact, and as mentioned, lose the leaf
#4 Is the winner for me, nice, crisp and great smile.

#1, I'd like to see what the boy is doing to the stick, looking at the end of the stick is an incomplete story. #2 doesn't do anything for me. #3. Nice. #4, My favorite. Handsome young boy. it's a complete story. Thanks for popsting. -rick

#1 - The cut end of a small old tree branch is not too interesting.
#2 - Just isn't interesting at all - no clear subject or dramatic lines.
#3 - Withered leaf on the head - might be interesting if it were a mantis or something live.
#4 - Very nice focus on the eyes & cool looking kid.

Funny enough I like #2 the most. I think it is important to see that as an art work rather than photography. Like others, I get lost in that image, but it is a good kind of lost. In saying that, a small bug, or leaf amongst the grass will instantly give the photo a subject and transform it into a wonderful photo.
