4/10
They're dead center in the frame which makes the composition pretty bland. There's no sense of closeness to me. Would have probably benefited from having them move their heads towards each other or having their foreheads touching and would definitely benefit from a different location especially at that time of day. Blown highlights throughout the entire image kill it for me. And they appear to be OOF (may be from compression). Nothing ties this together...her wardrobe, his wardrobe, and that wrap just don't work together. Sorry to be harsh, but this just isn't that nice of a port....]

Thats ok, no offence taken, all a matter of taste :)
To answer a couple of your points, the client actually specifically asked the images to be overexposed. So while I totally agree with that, its on an artistic intention that its overexposed.... I guess much the same way yours is underexposed to lose detail. Thanks for the comments :)

6/10
Artistically speaking, it seems to be a sound image. The subjects are positioned in a tasteful spot, and you definitely exercised some creative freedom in taking this picture. But being honest it does nothing for me because it seems so overdone. The blue lighting seems way too dramatic, and the purposefully underexposed subjects really just don't appeal to me, along with the logo that is way too prevalent.

EDIT: Apparently the cruise ship is out of focus?!?! That would be really hard to do at f/8.0...

I don't even own a Canon...

This almost seems like a vacation snapshot, and I'm finding a hard time determining the subject. Obviously the cruise ship covers the majority of the frame, but it seems out of focus compared to the waves hitting the shore. On top of that, the shore seems to cover too much of the frame and there is nothing particularly interesting about it as it seems dirty. 4/10

8/10 - I really like this. Love the guy's expression and all of the graffiti on the wall adds character to the photo.

Just moved downtown and I am shooting buildings for the first timeā€¦..

The image is good, good composition, interesting sky. I don't like the HDR like processing, looks too strong. Also, try not to cut off the top of the building. 5/10. Keep at it, city shots are fun.

Cat shots are always a near nightmare to get, unless you aren't trying to get one of course. 6/10 - the cat's in focus, but I would prefer to see all of the cat, or crop closer so it's just the front half. I like the ripples in the puddle. Better if you can get the cat to look at you as well - make a noise or something - but then it might run off. The lighting is a bit flat, but I'd guess the b&w has helped bring the cat out a bit.

shot taken in a lively mood but too much light on top and too less in rest of picture, hazy and grainy for my liking, needs saturation and sharpening 7/10

Interesting concept for the shot, but really should have taken the 2-3 steps to your left to get the window perspective straight on - then again, at that point the building behind probably wouldn't have been centered. In any case, the building behind the wall seems soft with a very uninteresting sky around it. Certainly worth a revisit and refinement of the idea. 7/10

Nice colours, and I like the way the reflections stretch out across the water. Vignette works well too.

8/10

I like this shot. The perspective and processing look good. I feel like you captured the mood of the building well, just there is nothing for the viewer to clearly focus on as the main subject of the shot. Since there is a lot of clutter, this is probably a necessary part of the image. Either way, nice job. 8/10.

^ 8/10. Love how melancholic it is. The mood is perfect. Would have gotten closer, though.

Thanks for the feedback, that's the feel I was going for.

Your image is great. Perfect timing and framing. I like how the people in the foreground are included, all looking at the planes. Really puts you in the action. It really looks like the planes came out of that cloud too. It would have been nice to see the people lit a little better, but the dynamic range must be quite extreme in this type of shot. 9/10.

Nice dynamic range -- I like how the shoreline splits the image in two and you can see where the water as eroded the land. Main thing for me is the part of the structure that is cut off on the left hand side. Maybe frame to include it more or not at all (8/10)

I like the idea, but I just wish there was a structure to put her in perspective better. Being VERY nit-picky here, but that tiny chink of light right above the middle of her head is distracting. ;)
