I would give this a 9/10. The color and composition is just brilliant. I wish the greenery was just a smidge brighter to increase the contrast. Other than that, it is an amazing image. Great work!

you're supposed to post a pic if you are going to rate one. :D

Love the emotion of the photograph. Really good in b/w. Maybe I would have not cropped the older lady's hair, but the angle is difficult to work with. 8.5/10

IS the light coming from below?
If it is, than this is "horror" lighting. Not sure if you did this on purpose or not but that's how it looks like.

I like the composition and expression but I find the lighting a bit too hot for my taste. 8/10. Haven't been on the forum much recently. You still keeping up with the 365?

Intresting image, Light is a little hard so you see the hard shadows on the wall and arm etc. 6/10.

I think this has potential. I wish there was more motion in the shot somewhere - clouds, cars or people walking to give more of an illusion of motion. The flat water with reflections is nice, color temp and exposure seem spot on. I would say a technically good photo that needs a bit of texture to it. 7/10

Here's a shot from me at Vilano Beach. Hurricane Joaquin was throwing us some choppy water and cloud cover. 5D + 24-105L 1/5 second hand held just a few inches above the water. Pretty tricky since the water was pushing and pulling me while I handheld it.

Horizon at the center doesn't work for me this time. I think the water has more potential than the sky. The water looks really nice and shows the energy of the sea. It really shows strength. with a lower crop it would make a wonderful photo. 7/10

Where's Kevin?

I like the DOF and lighting. Might like a little more light on "Kevin's" eyes. 8/10

nice capture both the man and woman look genuinely happy and the pose and expressions look natural. I would of maybe opened the crop up a bit more and I think I'm seeing some noise that could of been better handeld in PP. 7/10

took this snap shot of my girlfriend while we were walking to the river to get some pics of the fall foliage.

I like it. Beautiful girl. maybe the clarity is a bit high? her face would look nicer a bit softer. I may have reduced the highlights on her face a bit too IMHO. 7.5/10. I'm sure she loves it!


This is the last of my LEGO Star Wars set. It is fun to shoot!

I really like it! It's really fun, creative and I like that there's a lot to pay attention to.

It's difficult to see the short one's legs and the reflection doesn't match.

I don't know if this is too generous but I give it a 9.5/10.


Here’s my daughter on her scooter the other day. Last in the series I posted separately showing her journey learning to ride it.

For Bartc
^^^^
8/10 nice balancing of ambient and off camera light and I like the pose. I think it would have worked better if she was turned to the light instead of away from it.


For nqjudo
^^^^
7/10 it a nice shot. I'm sure the subject was difficult, unpredictable (dangerous?) and I'm sure you had limitations but from where you are a lot of him is cut off. Maybe if you were higher up?
