I would say 6/10. Cool action pose and I like that you got in close, but you could have used a wider aperture and kept the ISO lower to improve your photo. Watermark right in the middle of the photo is no bueno for me.

Here's a casual shot from me from a motorcycle social a couple of weeks ago.

My personal point of view: not a fan of the angle, the composition, and the crop.
I like the balance between the highlights and shadows especially the bike is half lit (naturally).

5/10

Very nice portrait shot. B&W works well and it's well processed. Good depth of field.

8/10

I think you may want to rate the previous image and post yours maybe smaller size, too. 1600 px along the longest edge.

Love everything about this shot. A great angle, the moving train, the waiting people, the light, the sky. A classic train pic. Well done!

Ha !! forgot the CC forum areas existed. I should almost skip rating above because it's almost opposite what I enjoy. For all I know, someone could give it a 9/10 if they love that stuff. So I'll just split it 5/10 purely to be as neutral as possible. The only thought that came to mind was the shadow implies motion from something that travels in a straight line. For that reason I'd prefer blurring in straight streaks rather than the swirly almost Petzval lens like background.

Let me throw one in from my gallery just to play along.

Nice photo of a little kid. 7/10. I think the white balance could be tweaked a little bit, and I feel like focus is not spot on. Would have been nicer to have her look at the camera, but that is subjective!

While we are on kids not looking at the camera..., here's a photo of my son after finishing a youghurt, not the cleanest face! (and background:))

Your critique made me laugh. Just want to clear up something. This is straight out of the camera. So no blurring, no Photoshop trickery. I guess the crazy stuff was caused by the UWA lens. I took the photo whilst riding my bicycle. :-P

7/10. Nice shot. The kid comes off well, very human but nothing extraordinary. But the composition doesn't work. The boy gets diminished in the strong background. I would simplify - crop off either the left of the right side, leaving the picture square or nearly so.

7/10... It's a good photo there are just 2 things bothering me... Her expression, and the shadows over her eyes. Her bangs are shadowing her eyes. It's nit picky and not a huge deal. I just can't look past it.


Some sort of dance pose.

Thanks. A handsome woman. I don't know what she was thinking. I shot her on a native reservation in Brazil and couldn't communicate with her, as I speak neither Tenetehara nor Portuguese. Her T-shirt makes some kind of a statement, and Novo Planeta is the name of her village. I never pose my models, I let them decide and take what they give. In that way, I feel, I get the best chance of catching what they are like as human beings.

I love to see action on this thread. If more people would take up the challenge, this could be one of the best threads of them all.

I like it, looks a little bit too saturated to me, but that is personal preference. I don't get the theme too much, though. 7.5/10

One of my old photographs around the time when I was playing with "tilt and shift processing"
