Excellent shot! The lighting is spot on, and the sharp car with the blurred background and road etc.

It is a well photographed picture.
I think it deserves a large screen to be better appreciated.
My eye wants to see some stray dog / old man / single green leaf / 'something' to give it meaning.

Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

This building has blown my mind. Wow a boat on top of a building thats insane! Nice and simple b&w wish you couldve brought up the blacks a little bit to give some contrast to the sky I think that couldve brought a bit of mood to the image. 7/10

I had a doubt about the B&W, you just confirm it ;)
Thank for your kind rate and suggestion.
BTW Excellent work on your car, i love the lighting

First off, I really like this shot...and after looking at it several more times I like it even better. It is classic, Old Masters painted such scenes where there are lots of people, and upon inspection each is involved with something. In this instance it is a great analogy to a 1950's cocktail party. Where all the guests are busy with there own little universes, and the central figure/subject is only a secondary consideration to them. Yet the central subject/figure is very clear to the outsider looking 'in'. Bresson-like comes to mind.

This is a nice picture - an environmental bird portrait. I like the contrast of the natural versus mechanical and the symbiotic relationship. My critique would be the crop, maybe a personal thing, as I would prefer, if the scene allowed it, a wider aspect ratio to take in more of the environment - and the top of the boat if you happened to have it. I know myself if presented with such a shot the choice of aperture would be difficult at that instant as sometimes I think I would also like to have the bird in the foreground sharp. I personally might also be tempted to subtly bring more (in a non-obvious way) of the reflection out of the water using various techniques in Lightroom (Clarity, Contrast, Vibrance, Exposure)

Overall - 7.5 / 10


From a family portrait session where we ran around to 3 different spots in the city in 2 hours. (5D3, 24-70mm @ 41mm @ F3.2, 1/80th at iso 400, no flash)

I really like the composition...a really fun shot. I like their choice of clothing, and the shoes really accent the graffiti. Also, really good use of natural light...You might not have been able to do much better with artificial lighting. My biggest criticism would be the that the shot is a little busy...Great job! 8/10

Just playing with new canon ef100 1/2.8 usm...Really welcome criticism. Don't quite know what I'm trying to get, but I'm close...I think? The background is more noisy than I would have liked, but it mostly was intentional.

The 100 Macro is an epic lens. You have to push further to find what it can do. In no way is my picture attached a good representation of what is possible as I have seen pictures 100x better. I bought the lens as a duo purpose - portrait / wedding closeup so I don't really use it for what it is greatest at. Search out images for the 100 macro and see what it can do - it will blow you away. I give this rating to encourage you that so much more is possible with this amazing piece of glass. 5/10.


With Christmas soon upon us, I post this picture as last year where I live in Toronto - we had a huge ice storm and that knocked out the power for about 1 week in our area and we just got back in for Christmas at 6pm on Christmas eve after being out of the house for 3 days looking for a place to stay. I took many pictures with the 100 macro - this was a closeup of a branch on our front yard.

I think it's the snow in the background

It's a piece of ice with a plant or a little branch inside.
The colours and the "texture" are truly awesome IMHO

Is it a perspective control lens? Really cool in wide angle that almost all of the vertical elements in the pic are parallel. Also like the coolness the rose colored overtones give the shot. Nice framing, and I love angles. My only criticism would be too much black sky? 7.5/10

Another try with the 100mm...I'm hoping you all's criticisms are getting me better results

I like it a LOT better than the first one - great colours. From my view, it looks a little soft - I'm not exactly sure what exactly is in focus. What was your point of focus? What was your aperture? Were you on a tripod? Was you IS enabled if you were handholding? If the image was tack sharp or I could determine what was meant to be tack sharp I would give it and 8.5 to 9.0. Either faster SS, nail your focus point better with Spot Focus, use a tripod, or stop down. #2 is so much better than #1. (7/10)


My daughter wanted a picture with her dog. For whatever reason I decided to take out some of the colour to get a certain effect.
700-200 F4 lens @ F5.6, ISO 100, SS 1/200. I think I used a single 600EX-RT on a stand through an umbrella.

Good composition, i just miss a subject "more" than the tree with the sun which can keep me longer on your image.
Nice colours in the sky, the shadow in front is a bit too much in my taste but you have no choice.
I criticize but over all it's a nice picture 8/10
