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.

It looks like he's having way more fun than he should be having!!!! To my eye it's just a bit out of focus (highlights of the eyes look blurry) and the color is a bit green. Also, the edge of the phantom head behind our hero is a bit of a problem as is the arm protruding from the heroes right ear. Clean up the color a bit and take care of the phantom head and the arm and I think you'll have a very enduring photograph. Probably not a great portrait but a photograph filled with great memories.
