Too bad. Two snails on the rim of a bird feeder (I'm pretty sure...)

Apologies for forgetting the description. :/ It has been edited.

Shot at 12800 ISO. I think it turned out ok for a night shot at 2.8

6.5/10
Wow the 6d does so well at high ISO's I feel this is more of a snapshot rather than something like an editorial. So I don't want to really nitpick at it. I do like how you filled the frame though.

Heres my next one for review:

8/10 I really like this one, elikim. A great shot for B+W. I would like it even better if it included the whole bench on the right. It is one of my personal peeves. ;-)a I have a few photos of my own that drive me nuts because I didn't get a certain part in the frame, or I had to crop a certain way because of a very distracting element.
Here is one of my B+Ws.

I like the expression of the model in your photo. It is as if she will say something. The quality andfocus looks good to me for the iso and being backlit. Her hood and the backlighting gives a romantic feel like a night on the town. 8/10

I'm sorry. :oops: Don't be hatin'. Lol!
It is the same critique I do for my own photos all the time. I will think it is perfect, then me or someone else will notice something that I can never forget.

This critique is fun! I might get addicted. :p

She is beautiful! Lucky you, to have such a model when/if she is willing. My husband will not tolerate the camera most of the time, even my daughter runs away or makes a silly face, and I am too shy to try to get portraits of strangers or friends. I practice on the animals. lol

Thanks. I'm sure she will appreciate that compliment.

I think if they were both against the sky it would work whether there was fill light or not, but the background objects are too distracting IMO 6/10.

It is a beautiful photo. The only thing that distracts me is the sand bank jutting out on the right. If it were possible to complete the shoreline to that sandbank it might be even better.

Thanks for comments above!

That's a basilisk right? It's a nice shot of him, but seems kinda soft and doesn't stand out enough from the background bokeh 7/10. Would be a challenge to photograph him walking on water.
