She's Lost Control (3)

I would say here that verbal context is stronger than the image. To improve the image I would suggest to try following: 1) clean foreground (leaves before statue); 2) choose less taller aspect than native 3:2. Probably 4:5 will be better; 3) avoid sky or light building near top border (simply distractive). Crop it out or choose different shooting angle; 4) I would try to use longer exposure or brighten the image in PS. But this is just my opinion. Thanks for sharing,...

Subject[s] mood, color, lighting, texture of backgound and DOF is great. But IMHO the picture should be less centric. If possible, please give more space left and top!

Very well controlled perspective. DOF seems very well controlled. At least at this resolution. Lines are straight and well aligned. The shadowed arch makes nice second frame around runners. Unfortunately they are too small to be recognized on first look.

First I looked few seconds before I understood orientation of picture and recognized subjects. Could be great abstract too. But to my mind there are several points which could be improved: 1)The image is slightly tilted clockwise. This is clearly visible near bottom frame. Probably barrel distortion should be also corrected. 2)Empty space on top of that seems unbalanced and should be cropped about 1/5 from the frame 3)2 persons could be cloned out. These were only...

I like this type of weather and overall mood of the picture. However there may be more detail in background. Despite f/8, DOF is still shallow. Probably due to focal length you used. Therefore all nice details - moss hanging from trees, small branches etc. are lost.

Colors are simple, vivid and clean. The red and yellow bands seems just smaller than green and blue. Having them equal could make the composition better. Also the picture may benefit from better DOF. Now many parts of the bands are out of focus. Especially the green one.

To my mind this picture needs serious cropping. The empty space is too big and main object - too small. Plus OOF fragment of plant near top border looks distracting. Regarding exposure - dark parts of the bug are underexposed and are not clearly visible.

Bulb Bust Burn (2)

Great capture. Glass chips looks like stars and exploding dust - like milky way. I would like to see this photo without light line at left side of the bulb. In this case you would achieve better faux-astro impression. Would be nice to know shutter speed and f/stop you used to achieve this.

Very well documented piece of art. I would wish more light on chin of the mask.

Nice subject itself. The color cast resembles color technique of those years. IMHO there are too much distracting background objects. Especially I would point two cars left and yield sign next to the rear view mirror. My first impression was that this is some detail attached to the car, i.e., rear spoiler. Only after I realized that is is a sign.

Like always such evening light makes fantastic and fairy mood. The shore line leads to distant misty mountains disappearing covering all color renditions between light orange/yellow; dark brown/black and gray. Few points that could be improved are: 1) You could find some main subject to place in foreground (i.e. a person walking near sea, rock, wreckage or something like that); 2) You could put more light on the beach (use grad, HDR or some masking technique in post...

Very nice and humorous :) But to my mind this picture lacks something. Either the background is too busy, the animal is not enough separated from background or may be it is lacking eye contact or invisible snack. Anyway, thanks for sharing!

Agree with the previous crit. about DOF. Did you tried F/22? Another nit would be using polarizer to cut reflections. The closest one is quite distracting.

I see DOF is very well controlled. Everything seems sharp in the picture. Highlight details are well preserved while shadows could be better(it may be an issue how my Firefox interprets ICM). BW/Yellow color helps to emphasize vehicle and attracts attention. However the chosen color composition may not be suitable to hang this picture on every wall. What I am not sure is a overall message of the picture - a pile in front of the bike makes impression that there is end of...

A beautiful bird with talking eyes. The photo seems heavily cropped and there are visual artefacts from sharpening, so only 1TU. The bird looks around corner of something (a tree, a house or a windowsill?). The lines are giving nice composition, but I would like to include more of this object in the frame or have more DOF. To me it is interesting - is it a forest or urban environment?
