6/10

Cool shot, you don't see smoking roses much. :)

There is a lot going on here. I realize that your trying to illuminate the smoke, but it really overpowers the rose. As a result, the shadows are kinda harsh. Also, the flame in the right is pretty distracting....maybe not so much if it was in focus and a little smaller. If you cropped off half of the smoke from the top I think it would frame the shot better also.

9/10. Awesome shot. Very crisp, neat colors, and generally interesting subject.

7/10
It's different, and I like the composition but it seems a little bit dark and dull.

8/10 I think it could use flash to flesh out the details on the weapons.

^^^^ 7/10 - The cat is sharp and I love his/her look, but the orange behind his/her head/neck kind of throws the picture a bit because it blends in with the cat's color. Still a nice image.

Great shot! Sharp and good composition. 9/10.

Here's another motorcycle. Kudos to anyone who can name the make and model.

8/10.

+ Really like the colors and the sharpness
+ Nice composition with the mountains in the background
- Maybe just a little too much contrast
- The big chunk of asphalt in the foreground is to "noisy" for my taste

Very strong photo but if move it a bit to the left and show a hint would also look good.

7.5/10

I am totally hooked on this thread! Such cool images as this one while receiving input of your own...
I give this 6/10. Good panning. Power lines at the top right just looks wrong as does the work on the division line below the front tire. Cropping tighter would have been better since the cars in the background look too much out of proportion. It's only my opinion tho!

I like how you can clearly see what the subject is in your photo. The DOF is good in my opinion. Looks like you nailed the exposure too! I don't think you need the cars in the shot though- crop them out and it would compel the viewer to ask, "Is he pointing at me?" 8.5/10

What was your lighting set-up at the time of the shot. Seriously I have like an extremely beautiful shot of the NYC skyline/scape and I have not been able to get the lighting situation to make the photo look as yours is. I deleted quite a few shots just today in fact. I dont have light backdrops as of yet but will get or fabricate what I need to take better shots.

+ Nice framing/composition
+ Like the contrast between the bluish wall on the left and the red center
- The red part in the middle looks to artifical for me (not your fault obviously)

Tonal range is great, especially with the contrasted red.
Long depth also works well
:lol:

7/10 loved the leading line fence ending at the lighthouse. Too much empty space on top. The sky can be cropped here quite a bit I feel.

Nice skyline. I wish the foreground wasn't so under exposed. 7/10
