Very nicely done. One complaint is the feet seem cropped just a little too close to the edge of the frame. I don't mind the close crop of everything else. Nice touch with 2 flying birds in the background. My other complaint is the hard shadow line on his neck from his hoodie. I'm guessing you used 2 lights and maybe the one on the right needed to be higher up?

At first, I thought the blue tones took away from the image, but looking at it longer I really feel like the blue tone closely matches her expression. Couple of distractions: Only the left side of her face is in the blue tone and the railing coming in and out of focus. Will rate it 8.5 for the emotional value.

Very nice capture. The only problem with it is he almost looks "beakless". The dark shadow behind his beak really hides it. Otherwise, good colors and very sharp. 7/10

Here's an image of the kern River and how disrespectful punks are today's day and age.

Many of us (you included) gave already in the past a comment "out" of the rating the photo above, what happen to you today ?

More seriously, if people are really following the thread they can't make mistake ...

Very nice. I guess you kinda had to use a bare flash, but it still looks good. Did you use any sort of diffuser at all? I would have preferred a level horizon as opposed to the level boat. I feel like the model's right hand looks slightly out of place, but these are all just nitpicks. Kinda refreshing to see a shot that is not all about thin DOF. I think the framing could be slightly better also. 8.5/10.

I give this a 6/10. I think there is a lot more potential in this picture with some different PP work. I downloaded the picture just to see if there is more info in the darker buildings to make the picture pop more - and there is. A little light painting with an exposure brush brought a lot more life to the picture in the buildings and for me that really gave it that big city, busy city, city of light feel. Framing is good, I like the shine on the road under the cars coming towards the camera. The darker building in the top left has some lights which come out with an exposure brush that lifts the entire picture.


Taken this morning of some street art on the side on a dog clinic - heavily cropped to crop out sky and driveway as it was taken down an alleyway that I couldn't get into.

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.

Hmmm. I'm sure it looked very cool but I'm not sure you did the location justice with cropping out the sky and sidewalk. I feel like I'm looking at a close up of a painting in someones living room from an awkward angle. 5/10

Very nice geometry. I would have cropped down a bit to avoid the change in perspective in the bricks. Overall a pretty good photo nonetheless! :)
8.5/10

I continue in "Nearly-Macro mode" --> OATS

I like it, even though the actual scene is a little bland, nice technique and exposure - 7/10

I feel like you should of cropped this symmetrically. I'm all for the rule of thirds but for this I think that you should of shifted right a touch. other than that its a very interesting photo and the colors and sharpness are very nice. 8/10

Love the sepia tones and the child's expression makes your eye stop so that's good! 8/10
