I think the previous photo is deserving of more than a 5/10.. imo

Cute subject, but a bit too over processed for me. I think you saturated for the dramatic garment but the child's skin rendering took a hit.

6/10

The eyes are sharp and the DOF is nice. My only gripe is that the dog kinda blends into the background. May look better as a black and white since there are so many neutral colors in this shot. Also might darken the background to make the dog stand out more. 7/10.

Nice candid of a Native American! a little bit too clear (faded) for me. I'd like to see more detail on him. 7.5/10 really nice capture


Another photo of the streets in Cuba, this time a banana stall in the city of Cienfuegos.

7/10- I like the photo but I would lighten the shadows. A bit dark for me.

- not actually sure what the focus / subject of the picture is suppose to be
- the orange colours are nice, but the background OOF bokeh rendering of the branches isn't particularly pleasing
- from the very slow shutter speed you are also getting motion blur so even with F5.6 there is very little in focus leading again to question what is the focus of the picture suppose to be
- the direction of the branches and leaves, in combination to the density, and also the background blurred branches, give an overall incorrect orientation feeling (best way that I can describe it)

3/10

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.

I'm sorry Wallstreet but I am going to have to rate that a 1/10. In my honest opinion I would have deleted it from camera. It is just to blown out and the gentleman on the right is way out of focus.

Just wanted to say I appreciate the feedback and the rating as it proves to me I did something correct. They were artists and didn't want normal. I sold them a few huge prints and this was one of them. Art is a wierd thing - everyone likes different things. Don't want to interrupt the thread so please some rate the last picture.

There are a lot of things right about this photo - pose is good, exposure and processing are good, very flattering to the bride. But looks a little soft to me. Not sure if the uploading/hosting is to blame or the shutter speed too low. I would have bumped the ISO up to 200 or so just to be safe. 8/10

6/10. I think this was a really interesting choice (angle and subject). The primary headlamp looks a lot like an eye - from maybe a bird of prey. I find the top half of the photo much more interesting than the bottom half, so I may have cropped out the lower lights. Also I would have liked to see a bit more of the "inboard" side of the main light assembly (so. maybe I would go landscape instead of portrait).

Staying on the car theme:

off the charts good 9/10 - not a 10/10 because the reflection of the two guys walking by was not an bombshell brunette


This is two lonely males waiting for their ladies to arrive

i like the shot overall.. the males are a bit hard to spot as the wider shot and so much white makes them harder to spot.. wonder if doing a more pano style crop would help them pop more.. color and exposure are great 7/10

I like everything about the shot except the power lines. This truck needs to be way off road, away from the things of man and it's parked right under the power lines. 7/10.

We had a break in the rain, so some friends and I took a trip to the zoo today.

I think this is a good picture, and it could have been great, if there was enough DoF to get both lions in tack sharp focus. I especially like the mimic symmetry that is going on with each animal. The overall exposure is excellent. 8/10
