I love it. Makes me happy just to look at it. My only complaint is that the butterfly shape seems a bit uncertain of itself. Maybe brighter and with a bit less contrast, to make it stand out more from the mass of faces behind. I don't know. Would 9/10 be fair?

I was so happy with the good advice I got on my last photo that I'm submitting another of my very favorite portraits, a Cuban preschooler.

I like the composition and the pose but not keen on the weird colour thing going on
8/10 for composition and pose, 4/10 for processing (just my personal taste though) = 6/10.

Thanks, Jack!
I like the colors, you don't, and that's fair. I wanted to make it look like a painting.

To be more specific, I guess it's more the way the black areas have this weird brighness/shine to them. Is it what's known as cross-processing? Not sure. I know some people like it but not my thing. Personal taste though.

I loved the image as soon as I saw it, but it came out of the camera with horrible colors. I worked and worked on it, including using a Topaz preset, and that's where the blue highlights came from. Unexpected and not realistic, but liked the effect. By the way - I don't pose my models, I don't do studio shots, I just catch them as I can. This girl knew I was taking pictures of her, but her mind was on the ice cream cone. I think I caught the innocence of childhood in this shot.

You absolutely did. Great pose. I too hate posed shots. From my experience, the difference between men and women (not talking about photographers- just people taking family pics with their phones etc) - women tend to tell everyone they're taking a photo and make everyone pose together in a group, and men just take the photo of the scene how it naturally is...

9/10 - I really like everything about this image, the light, the composition and juxtaposition of nature and science/technology. I took off a point because of the artifact in the center right of the image. I thought it was a smudge on my monitor until it scrolled with the image - once seen, it drew my attention. Is that a contrail segment? Great image! -Bill

Thanks a lot for the compliments! Yes, it's actually a contrail. I thought about cloning it out but decided I liked it as a small detail of the scene.

I love the composition and BnW treatment.
If the picture is shot at @135mm • 1/800 • f/3.2 • ISO 5000
ISO 5000 is way too much but I understand that it must be low light situation. I would still slow down shutter a little and decrease ISO with an increase in the aperture. Overall, it's a beautiful picture. 7/10

Its rather funny but I've been shooting at ISO 5000 more to learn what can and can't be done with it. In this case, I love the grain it has added into the shot. Gives it a real nice traditional grit to the image. And Austin has grit. Love the shot, and I love looking into this dudes eyes. Not sure I would change anything.

Was this shot down on 7th near the homeless shelter? Lots of great subjects in that part of town. Miss it.

I've now reposted it with an improved elbow in "Post your headshots." Thanks for your comments.

I like this photo, clearly good techniques. I like the colors and comp[osition. I wonder though how it would end up if it was a bit sharper and with less haze for this particular photo. I love “hazy” landscapes but in my opinion saturation and sharpness could’ve been the wow factor.

My score would be... 7/10

Wow, cracking photo. Great job of balancing the beams of light with the building lights. If I was really nitpicking I'd say the white lights at the bottom are slightly overexposed, but that's really minor...

9/10

i love this image. when i first scrolled up (down?) to it, i thought "that looks like a ship laying on its side, on a building."

great execution. i understand the stern lines being part of the picture, but i wonder if it would have more impact cropped down to just the ship and pier.

definitely a 9 or better (if we need to use a number system)
