Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Nice! 7/10 My eyes travel all over the photo. I first notice the blinding headlights and then the red light. The headlights are a bit bright and dominant in the image, but that is natural. The only issue I have is searching for subject matter. Did you use a filter for the burst of lights? I have some of those from film days but never use them anymore.

Edit: I am too slow! The focus and composition is good and it is a great choice for B&W. I like the fence as a subject and love the line. 8/10 I may have cropped off the right side as the view of road distracts me, but that is subjective. Put your hand on the right side and block the road off by cutting the tree in half vertically. What do you think?

no filter used. I set the shutter to 13sec and enhanced the lighting in Photoshop.
I like looking at all of the lights n sights on this street but perhaps a better subject would have added to the photo. Thx

^ Overall I like the image. I like the play of light you've caught on her face and the expression you've captured. What I can't decide on is whether I like the grain effect you've added. I don't think it really detracts from the shot but neither do I think it adds to it. On balance, I feel the shot would be improved slightly without the grain. Really good effort though 8/10.

One from me:

it was shot @ 4000 ISO
didn't "ADD" grain, but the processing I put it through did enhance it a bit more. so the grain is natural. thanks for your comments though!!!

8/10 - I like the image and subject isolation. It's also very sharp. I would have liked to see the bird's head exposed maybe 1/2 stop brighter.

Very well done. Only two nitpicks I have are the palm tree in the top right annoys me a bit since it is just floating not connected to anything. I would at least clone out the small tip right at the top. Second is you clipped the right side of the circle ever so slightly. All in all very well done though.

8.5/10

This is my second to last photo in my He-Man 365 series. Tonight will be the last one! :cool:

Haha, I like the subject. Nice sharp focus, clever idea. 9/10

Here is a picture of my daughter the day after Christmas. I was going for some lens flare, pretty sure I nailed that part.

9/10 like the flare.

Can you send me the EXIF info? Curious what lens and body you shot with.

Quick shot of the wife from Christmas Day.

Focus and processing I like, composition really doesn't do much for me though. 7/10 imho.

9/10. Love the location and the processing of the foreground, but the sky has a bit too much contrast for my taste (the whites are whiter and the blacks are blacker than the rest of the photo).

What an awesome action shot! 9.5/10 –*the .5 off as I would like to see a tiny bit more detail in the snow, but then again, looks great as it is :)
