Photography Critique Edition #4

photo critique

In this editon of “photo critique” I received more wonderful images. Let’s see them.

Boredom by Alex Watson

Weekly Photography Critique

Technical Aspects

Unfortunately, in this photograph, the subject is not well focused. There is also a high lack of contrast. This kind of shot would have been better with a stronger lateral light and a black background.

Visual Aesthetics

The image clearly creates a special mood, but I would associate this mood with fear rather than boredom. Behind the mask there is an angry look. This look should be more visible – like there is a need for more details in the eye area.

Entra la Luz by Rodrigo Melgarejo

Weekly Photography Critique

Technical Aspects

The image may not respect any traditional rules, but I still find it correctly done. The are sufficient details even if the light is powerful. There is a good contrast and sharpness. Nicely done.

Visual Aesthetics

I must say I love this photo. It’s very peaceful and it gives me a relaxant mood, full of hope for better days that are up to come. This mood is not only transmitted by the incoming light, but also by the warm light colors. I do find a bit distracting the fact that there a two different kind of curtains at the window.

Joey by Christine Eaton

Weekly Photography Critique

Technical Aspects

There is a very pleasant lighting which combined with the DOF, clearly separates the subject from the behind scene. There is a nice diagonal composition and it is a very clear way of capturing the subject with all representative details (from the light in his eyes to the details of the guitar). There is a very good quality of the image in matter of colors, sharpness; even in high resolution there is no sign of noise or aberrations. Good exposure also.

Visual Aesthetics

Your model made a good pose. Everything looks natural and I really like this photograph. Keep it up so Christine!

Weekly Photography Critique

Technical Aspects

The technique you applied here is called selective colors. You did it well. There are no soft colored edges, the delimitation between the yellow flower and the black and white grass is clear and sharp. If you look closely, you can see some green grass over the yellow flower at the right.

Visual Aesthetics

The composition is simple and brings nothing special but it’s an OK photo. The number 3 is a good number to appear in a photograph. Also, I like this idea that comes in my mind while looking at the photo: a colorful spring comes out from beneath the frozen dead leaves. There is a powerful yellow on this image.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".

  1. Thank you for the kind words, they are encouraging for someone just getting started taking pictures. I took this picture of my wife’s crocus a couple of weeks ago while at home on my lunch hour. I did not really like the leaves in the photo and thought it would look best in back and white then decided to leave the color in the flowers. This was my first time doing this on this scale. If you look closely you can see a couple of bulbs that I left without color because they were not opened.
