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 Lynn Hanes on June 23, 2015 at 7:06pm

Just looking for thoughts on how this looks or is there a way it could improve?

Comment by VJEKO on June 22, 2015 at 1:53am

Hi Esteban

I like texture which you use here.Have very nice vintage effect on image but I don`t like that strong red color. If you go down with saturation you will get better color balance. That white patch on top right corner is distracting and take attention. You need to fix bottom left corner too with clone tool.

Here is version of what I have in mind.
