5/10 sorry doesn't do it for me not sure were the focus point is the right eye looks sharp left isn't? Although it is clear the guy has probably been involved in some worthwhile charity event. It just looks like he has shoved his head somewhere I would rather not think about. I think the problem is out of context with other shots it doesnt stand alone.

8.5/10 i think the shot would be boring if the old man was not there. it adds to the story quite a bit. i like it.

Cool shot. I would try a different comp - Just seems uninteresting. I think the use of an old rusty car covered in snow/ice could have been utilized better here.

That's a pretty tagged up elevator -- I like it, but I just wish there was something that really made the colors pop a bit more. Also wondering if you used flash because there seems to be a bit blown highlights near the top of the frame (7.5/10)

Love the creamy background, and the spot of pink in all that green does provide a moment of interest. However, it does feel like just another flower picture without drawing me to look at the image more than just a moment. 6/10

6.5/10

Like the sharpness and clarity of the stone, and colors. Would like to see a bit more sky. Seems to be a bit of halo or aberration around the building's room'

Love the expression. It makes me think she was surprised or proposed too. 8.5/10

A kid with dirt and rocks, not much to criticize there. I like the b&w, the textures of the rock pile and the concentration on the face. 9/10.

6.5/10 I like the vibrance and exposure. Blown highlights were probably unavoidable. Nothing really interests me here, however. I think with a different perspective, crop, framing you can spark some more interest.

For shots like this where the eye doesn't look that sharp, I sometimes selectively sharpen/enhance detail/clarity of just the eye/retina/iris. Maybe add a small catchlight. Maybe this is more applicable to cats than fish :)

This is not really a macro shot, so I think the leaves around the fish are distracting since they're slightly blurred. Kiinda like having two people in a portrait, but one person isn't in sharp focus (not as bad though). So, I think you should try to isolate your subject more, or include the detail of the surroundings.

Sorry for rambling, but that's just my thought process.

i think the white balance is way off, and the branches in the front are kind of distracting. cool bird though. 6/10

I like the vastness it creates, but the blue seems oversaturated the clouds/rays take away.

4/10

I want to take a second and give a bit of praise as someone who owns an aquarium and knows the pain of trying to photograph fish. It's a nice shot given the pains of shooting aquariums.
