The fill in is too strong and take over the beautiful light at the back. (i would did the opposite, put the subjects facing this nice light instead to have it in the back/side of them)
The DoF is too small > the girl is not inside.
I don't like the way you cut the feet of the men and you forget to take off the lens hood which is shadowing the bottom of the picture when you used the flash (or something else shadow their legs)
5/10

I know I am not supposed tor rate the person who rated my photo but whatever, we end up rating each other photo's anyways.
The tree on the left (where her/his right hand is put) I would selectively drop the brightness of it, somehow it competes for my attention from the main focus, the persons.
This 2nd one I know it is subjective matter of taste but I would take the blemishes of the person feet. You probably left them there on purpose but I would personally take them out.
There is a little bit of noise in the background, not sure if you left it there on purpose again ...

Overall a very nice picture, the B&W works very well for this photo. Very nice pose/framing expression capture. Would make a good poster for me (but after at least cropping the spots on legs  :p ).
8.5/10 (would be a 9.5/10 for me with the couple of my preference edits)


For this one, I know technically there is a lot wrong with it (grain, crow underexposed) but I edited the picture this way in post on purpose. I thought this look is good.

Reservoir Dog, I really liked your feedback on the photo of the family. Very thorough and insightful critiquing.
As for your black and white photo of the girl, I just wanted to comment that I feel like it has a bit too much contrast. A little more grays would have made this look a little more tender/delicate in my opinion. I really like the shot, which is why I'm just giving you my input on how you processed the B+W :) I know soft shadows/matte blacks are way overused but I think I would have liked it here. The sandals and her hair seem just way too black to me as well as some of the shadows in the back.

4/10. This is not a situation I would have used such a large aperture. The depth of field is not deep enough and the tiny bit of bokeh you do get is distracting. The sky is way overexposed for one, but the main subject on the elephant looks too exposed with loss of detail/contrast. The colors are too warm/brown in my opinion and look kinda like cheap instagram filter. No offense intended.

yea i know ... i love very contrasted B&W which some time might be a bit harsh, now on i will try to mind more with the greys. (yes the sandals ... pffff now i see only them :-( )
Thank you for your input :)

Good colors in the BG, wish there was a little more light on the model. 6/10

Very cool photo but I would bump up the shadows a bit. The foreground and the subject seem underexposed a lot. 6/10

Nice pic and colors and movement in the clouds. I wish the sky in the horizon wasn't as blown out....maybe you could pull more detail from highlights. There is some haloing going on on the edges of the mountains which may have been a result of pushing highlights or shadows just a little too far. 7/10

8/10 - I really like this shot - the B/W gives it a melancholy feel. Very nice shot.

Wow, there's really nothing to improve in this one. In a game, things aren't so controlled, but this shot has great timing, great eyes, and the ball in the shot. Nice work. 10/10.

I don't have anything I was aching to post, so I'll go for a competition shot myself -- I mostly wanted to rate the pitch :P

Really nice shot. Perfect moment, sharpness, etc. I don't love the contrast/clarity of the photo. The venue probably didn't' have great lighting, but I don't love the skin tones. It almost looks like cross-processing which is what you may have been going for. Overall the tones are warm, but I'm surprised at how blue the water is. The tan line on her arm is accentuated because of the contrast level I think. Still a 9/10 for me.
