This is a cool concept but each family member needs a similar expression. The 2nd kid upstages everybody with the goofy expression and holding his leg differently. Rate: 7/10 (cool concept and great location, just a few things to change)

I would give this a 6/10, but could be a 8-9 if you made a few changes. I think you should use a more "widescreen" crop and lose the parking lot curbs on the bottom part of the image. Focus on the water. Also I would do a subtle composite to bring more detail back into the moon. Some of the transitions where the moon is reflected could use a little smoothing.

Here's a simple headshot for a friend looking to get a few small time acting roles. Not really a smiler, so we went for a more serious look. 5D + 135L

Some people aren't smilers. :-)

Top of the head is hot and I think this would have been a much stronger image as a portrait versus landscape. Also unfortunate the sun caused that right ear to be so warm, but the exposure on the face is good and the colors are pleasing. 6/10

good capture on the reflection
it feels upside down - i personally would rotate it
i might also crop it tighter, maybe 4x5, to eliminate 'some' of the distracting background

6.5/10

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.

Well...reflections are always the opposite of what it's reflecting. ;-)a

I'll give that an 8.5 out of ten. I really, really love the way the light is falling on her gown. I mean, there are so many shades represented in the gown because of the extremely obtuse angle at which the light is coming from. This creates an absolutely gorgeous affect - simply beautiful!!!

The thing that is a little distracting is the arrangement of the lights above and around her head......especially the way that one of those lights appears to be growing out of the top of her head. That is a bit disconcerting and distracting. I think that it could have been avoided with a slight change in the photographer's position, such as shifting to a position about 18 inches to the right, so that her head would fall neatly into the gap between the two centermost lights.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Perfect shutter speed to keep the head sharp but still have some movement in the wings. Nice DOF. I might have cropped it a bit tighter at the bottom. Good shot though.

8/10

I love train stations and I really think the processing here is very well done. I like the lines and perspective a lot. really well done. very good exposure too. 9/10

I know I am biased by mine, as it is my best friend's baby, but I like it. Let me know what you think

Really loving the over all composition! Well done on capturing emotions. 9.5/10 Don't like the crop in the bottom.

Nice portrait. The face is more saturated than the hands, is it make up? I do like the pose a lot. The car/van on the left can be a bit distracting 7.5/10

another baby shoot for my friend. My god it is tiring...

first of all, before I critique, let me be the first to say, as a father of 3, that getting a very young baby into this position and actually getting a picture, is amazing - so don't take the following critque negatively in any way

exposure is perfect
colour / contrast is very good
center composition - could be better
i am such a huge believer in eyes to the camera, if presented with that setup, I think I would have tried to shoot further to camera right and lower, just to try and get that perfect picture

this is an 8/10 - i'm sure the client is very happy - well done

Thank you very much for your critique. I totally agree with you with The fact that The centre composition can and should be improved. Shooting lower and trying to get his eyes looking directly at me would have been nearly impossible. God, babies can move! I was going for many different shots in a short time, so couldn't wait for him too much. I think that was a mistake and should've waited and focused more into getting fewer better photos. Anyway, I was shooting for a friend of mine, and as far as I know, they are quite happy.

Thanks very much!

Ok I'll play.

I think contrast is too strong and the tilt isn't really my taste either. I think a more simple black and white conversion would look better and probably have the same amount of impact. 5/10

Here's a headshot I did for a friend starting her own business. All natural light, shot in the shade. 5D + 135L

I like the 2 of the colors but I think 3 strong colors is a bit much, though I do realize you don't have control over what the client wears. If she were of a darker complexion I think that would've suited the image more, but seeing as she is rather pale/neutral in complexion even though the background is clean the intensity of the color draws attention away from her. For that reason I think the crop should come in some from the right, and take down some of the color. The bokeh and light is very beautiful though and the client is nice and sharp. Also she seems to need straightening, or to balance out her posture since there's nothing in the background to denote a vertical. 8.5/10
