This group is for negative feedback on photos or things that could be improved only. People tend to only comment on photos when they have something nice to say, but this group is designed to go against that trend so you as a photographer can find out what is wrong with your technique. So please don't be afraid to contribute a negative comment in this group on someone else's work.

If you would like to get constructive criticism on one of your photos here is what you do.

1. Click the Link that says "Start a Discussion"
2. Upload your photo to the "Post" section on the "Start a Discussion" screen. To do this click on the little photo icon next to the text formatting icons.
3. After your photo is uploaded you might add some text under it if you wish describing what you are concerned about or what you would like to hear opinions about.
4. Please do not use the attach section because then users will have to click on a link to your photo to see it. By using the "Post" section, users can study your photo more effectively.

Comment by Phil Williams yesterday

If you have post photo software use the straightening tool. Most of my photos are always just a bit off center unless you use a tripod.

Comment by Nirmal Dhillon yesterday

I agree with you Mr. Robert Davis. I think the reson leaning is view point is very near, I had to keep the lens upwaard. I wil re-take and repost. thanks for your critic view.

Comment by Robert Davis on Saturday

Nirmal, the buildings are leaning, hence not straight, wrong lens or point of view. You have two buildings with bright blue that are in competition with each other for being the subject. Re-think, re-do, and re-post.

Comment by Nirmal Dhillon on Saturday

Please comment and give your suggestions as I have recently started night photography.

Comment by Wayne Crichlow on August 4, 2014 at 1:45am

Lol. I tried to avoid going crazy with too many colours on this one so I thought I would stick to the many shades of grey.

Comment by Robert Davis on August 3, 2014 at 7:40pm

Wayne, when they coined the phrase "Fine Art," this is the true definition they had in mind. Awesome work, spectacular range of color from black through to white. 

Comment by Wayne Crichlow on August 3, 2014 at 3:10pm

Hi again everyone! I took this image of the Lloyd building in London this afternoon let me know what you think as I tried to get an interesting POV hopefully. Your honest critique is much appreciated.

Rob I have read your critique a couple of times and I am truly humbled by your comments. As you know I have only been taking photos for a short time but I have found this art form all consuming. The passion grows stronger each day and I find myself thinking about the next shot and how I can make it better. Your honest comments spur me on to better myself and I really appreaciate the views of fellow photographers on this site.

We are all learning and I enjoy the idea of sharing our experiences on this site.

I think this quote by life coach Fabienne Fredrickson sums up how I feel about my journey with photography so far: " The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling"

I encourage everyone to use their passion to capture those images you want to share with the world.

Kind regards

Wayne

Wayne, your images continue to offer me new and different perspectives on themes I've done in the past. Inspiration for sure. As for the street scene the center subject appears to be some sort of drainage device, I'm not knowledgeable on these things. But does it work as an abstract? Here you have asked the proverbial question that will encourage a thousand different responses. In my opinion only, this specific image works as an abstract. However, the issue I have is that there is no real main subject other than the far end of the grate (the only thing in focus). Since the image has such depth, having something for the eye to rest upon is crucial for the viewer. Now that I have shot my mouth off and probably will now en-flame a few comments from others, I find this image noteworthy in that it could very easily hang in a gallery. Do I like it? Absolutely for sure. Would I have taken it (?), don't know as I'm not cognizant of the circumstances under which you were involved with at the time.

Wayne, you're a remarkable photographer and are showing great potential. Keep up the good work as you're an inspiration for all of us.
