Great symmetry. Feel you could bring the blue luminance down just a hair for a bit more depth and contrast. 8/10

QUOTED IMAGE
Recently processed shot from my September trip to Montana. Local friend is looking for 'old barn' shots for their home and been reviewing some of my shots for them. Still on the fence about this one.

personally love the shot and the tones.. 9/10... after looking at this shot a few different times... i love that the blue sky is not over saturated like you see a lot. the only reason i could think that your client is not jumping for this one is that the barn is rather small in the frame?

8/10

Great shot, perfect focus, and nice frame. I think the picture lacks a little bit of contrast--everything is pretty light from her skin, hair, shirt, and background. This does really focus on the girl's eyes, though. The edge of the grass is a little distracting and makes it obvious that the background is a gravel or paved road. Perhaps trees/grass would have made for a better background or just gravel.

I'm guessing this may not be the very best frame/background of the series of pictures you took, but I'm sure whoever you took it for loves it.

Cute kitty! but it's not hard to take good pics of cute kitties!! Nice DOF and sharp but maybe a better crop or composition would have livened it up? 7/10

thanks for the feedback. I am kinda tired of rule of thirds and liked this better than this one:

^ I think that's a great photo. Technically the exposure and focus are spot on. I like how the OOF body leads you to the cats face and the cat is looking off into the negative space. Well done!

Here is one I took today. I find myself changing editing styles a lot. I'm fairly new to all this so I second guess myself a lot. Would love any advice/tips you have. Thanks!

LOL the right side of her face is lit perfectly... A slight filled shadow adds depth.. Completely flat lighting wouldn't work for this pose.. thanks for the 9/10 though! :)

Solid image. Good depth of field, processing matches the image well, nothing too creative but accurate for the scene. 9/10 My look/feel changes fairly fluidly as well depending on the subject, trying to pull back on some of my processing looks a bit these days after going a bit too far on some (often not realizing till I look back at them a few weeks/months later). So restrained and solid is rarely a bad thing.

I like the image a lot, sort of has a 'Timberland' or 'REI' look for a commercial shoot. Great sharp detail, 9/10.

Here is a misty morning in Monterey CA.

EDIT: Took a second look and on second look the image has grown on me. I was going to be critical of some things but they seem to work for the image only knock is some glare in the center but not much you can do about that. I'd say it's a 7.5-8/10

Thanks, I have it on my wall in my office as a 2'x3' metal print and it's grown on me as well.

I don't have an image to post right now, so I'll allow the next person to critique your shot.

It's a nice expression, the white 'thing' to the left in the background is quite distracting and you could have wiped his face!! Nice capture though. 6/10
