7/10 I would crop in on all sides. Seeing the crowd thin out toward the back isn't exciting and the non-stage venue walls are distracting/unimportan​t. I'd say go B&W on this one. This would be an OK venue shot, but I wouldn't really use it to highlight the artist. The spotlight and sound mixing table on the right also detract for me. For me, crowd shots should make me feel like I'm involved with the crowd or the artist. This doesn't make me feel involved.

I think people are pretty critical in here...hehe. My thoughts on the crop are that I would have liked to see more space in front of the dog's snout. It's not a 3x5ish proportion, which is fine, but I think the fact that it's more of a square crop, which shows more of the dog's neck and less space in front of the snout makes it 'less desirable'.

Not that you were asking for my opinion.. Don't mind me--I didn't sleep at all last night. about to crash out now..

Well it's an 8x10 crop so that might explain it

8/10 tk1138 really nice capture, framing and bokeh. I would say that the picture could overall be lightened up a tad, the colors/image seem a tad on the flat side and could use some contrast. But that's being nit picky. You got the important stuff right!!

7/10. I don't care much for the subject matter, but you captured it well and I like the post processing.


Here's mine...not a great photo, but I thought I'd play around with PP. Changed it to B&W and maxed out the "clarity" in LR, to give it an older feel. I'm curious what others think:

I like the B&W conversion. Gives it a kind of inky black feel. Not much of a composition, more of a snapshot which is OK, since you were trying a new technique. Photo 5/10, technique 8/10.

Here is mine:

6/10. The light on the chimp is lovely. Personally, I feel if you would have cropped in to just the chimp's face, I bet it would be amazingly detailed and make for a very interesting shot.

Just a raw portrait.

Not sure I'm crazy about the expression, processing or crop. 6/10

Too dark of a landscape photo for my taste, just my subjective opinion. 6/10

I like that one Brian! 8/10. Excellent processing and make-up.


And for Rioni, I agree with Brian, it's just a tad dark for my tastes, but I love the shot of Bixby Bridge. I enjoy riding Coast Road (where you took the photo from) on my motorcycle. Speaking of which, here is mine...again, like my last picture, it's really more of a snapshot. It was a fun riding day yesterday but an off-day for photography. :lol:

I reckon it can be brightened up a bit. I would prefer it if the bike was further to the left as it is not getting my attention that close to the edge of the frame. 6/10

Wow nice capture. I would say if it was framed closer to the surfer in action, it would be perfect. 7/10 (edit: is he wiping out in this shot?)

Not digging the location, the tilt is distracting, and I'm not a fan of the wide angle distortion. 6/10

This shot has been posted all over Tumblr, though I've never really liked it all that much. Something about the angle as bothered me. What say you?

Honestly, for a car photo, yours is EXCELLENT. Even your signature sets the "classic sports car" tone and feel in photo. And although there are cars parked in the back, they somehow don't take away from the subject and actually works quite well with the overall scene. 9/10

Not sure what to think with this one. Not only do I have no idea what I am looking at but I see no clear subject. Good exercise in technique. Good exposure. Lighting is interesting. Looks sharp throughout. Still...cant find a meaning for this photo.
4/10.
