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.

I was wondering what you all thought of this picture with the fishing pole sharp and the fisherman out of focus. Maybe I should have kept it all sharp? Used 100-400mm lens at 100mm and 5.6Continue

Tha....,
Sure looks like a heck of a tip for a young man. Great composition. The finger pointing back to himself looks a little contrived. The light appears a little flat and straight on, like flash was employed. As far as fill flash, this may have been of necessity since the outside light seems quite subdued.

I originally posted this one and then deleted and posted the darker one, thinking that the lighter one would be too light on here. I'm happy actually that you pointed it out. What do ya think now?

Comment by nathan mccreery on April 24, 2010 at 4:59pm
Arne, It's an interesting photograph. The dark tones in the hair are a bit heavy (dark) for my taste. I'd like to see some separation with the hair on the far side and I think the vignetting at the bottom is a bit heavy and harsh but interesting concept.
Comment by nathan mccreery on April 24, 2010 at 4:56pm
Ed - And mesmerized you should be. My only suggestion on it, and this is strictly personal preference, is that I think her beautiful skin is a little dark. I have a feeling that bringing up the mid-tones would really make this sing! One other thing is that if it were mine, I'd work the eyes a bit to get a nice catch light, not a harsh one, but a nice, soft, delicate one and lighten the iris just a bit. Beautiful portrait though. Make a 30x40 for your studio and watch peoples reaction to it.

To me it's a Composition Perfect!
The chin RESTING in a v-shaped nest of folded arms, which themselves span the frame give it a calm and stability.
A bit tilted head, natural smile and the eyes reflecting light fill the photo with life.
The strand of hair to the front and the strand to the back of the face make it feel three-dimensional.
Softness of the skin and precision in revealing details of the eyes done beautifully.

If anything at all, (if picture was mine) I would have tried to bring a bit more light in.
Comment by Ed Harp on April 23, 2010 at 6:28pm
OK guys here ya go. Maybe I'm just mesmerized by the beauty of my granddaughter. But, if there's criticism to be had, let 'er fly.

Comment by nathan mccreery on April 19, 2010 at 7:18pm
Actually that isn't necessarily true. We have White Sands and the Sonora Desert
as well as the Mojave desert and Death Valley, one of the hottest places on earth, which are nearly as hot as yours and with very intense light. I would suggest that you consider waiting until the sun is low in the sky or just below the horizon, which is what we have to do if there isn't any cloud over. You will find that the light very late in the day or very early, is complementary to your work.
