David -- not sure how else to reach you so I'll try this. I sent you a PM but I'm guessing your spam filters ate it.

Anyway, you won a free DPC membership in the Comments for a Cure contest. See this thread for details. Check your spam folder in your email to see if you got my PM with the membership gift certificate codes. If not, send me a PM and I'll re-send it.

Love the title! I would have called it the "S.S. Mein Kind" (ess, ess, mein kind is Yiddish for "eat, eat, my child"), but I doubt more than a couple people would get that.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

I like your concept here, but this photograph seems to suffer from a couple technical issues.

First, it appears the camera locked focus on the plant at bottom right. In addition it appears you had a slowish shutter speed, which resulted in some motion blur. Perhaps it might have been better to open up by 1-2 stops to speed up the shutter. Even if you had to go to ISO 1600, the 5D can handle that quite well.

It looks like you may have oversharpened a touch, as there are noticeable sharpening halos in some spots.

This is a nice concept overall, though. I like where you went with it.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

This is an adorable photograph and a great concept. It looks like you put a lot of effort into the costume and props here, and that effort paid off. It appears that you had a little trouble with your lighting, however, as evidenced by the strong shadows on the right side. This photograph would have benefited significantly from either a fill light or a reflector on the right side. The molding on the right side is also a touch distracting, but forgivable -- Cindy Lou did, after all, live in a house, so the molding is believable.

The blue on the frame seems a strange choice of color. I'm guessing you want with that to pick up the color from the model's eyes, but it just doesn't work for me. I'd have preferred to see the frame a different color, or no frame at all.

Overall this is an excellent image. If you can maintain this level of creativity and work out the lighting issues, you'll be a ribbon contender.

I like the pattern here, and the way the dark blue of the ceiling offsets the paler blue of the sky. The placement of the gray arch and the lights works well here, though I wonder if this might have been a little stronger with just a little of the left side cropped away (closer to the leftmost light).

I like the patters created by the lights, but overall, this photograph says "patterns" or "repetition" to me, more than it says symmetry. I would not go so far as to say this does not meet the challenge, but I wouldn't say that it totally nails the challenge topic either. This may be the largest reason this photograph did not score higher than it did.

Still, this is a quality image that you should be happy with.

I like the unique perspective provided by the 45-degree angle. Still, my first impression was that something seemed "off-balance" about the composition. I've been looking at it for a little while, and experimenting with different crops, and I've figured out two things which bother me about the composition.

First, the small bit of roof visible in both corners seems to break the repetitive flow of the image, and seems to serve no real purpose. I would have preferred to see this zoomed in closer, or alternately, cropped tighter.

Second, while you were careful to have the horizon line flow from one corner to the other, it appears you may not have been as careful with the other two corner. Recomposing (or, alternately, re-cropping) with a set of pillars running from corner to corner seems to strengthen the symmetry of the image.

As a more minor point, it looks like your horizon line does not quite run corner to corner. It may have been worthwhile to rotate the image slightly to correct that.

Black and white was a good choice here, as it focuses the viewer on the lines and patterns. I like the decision to shoot at an angle here. Too often, people do that because "it's artsy" without having a reason why. In this case, you had a good reason why, and the effect you were going for with it worked.

Very interesting color here. There's a lot of potential with this subject, but I think there's a couple areas where the photograph could be improved.

First, you've picked up a bit of light pollution in the sky. You may notice a dark brownish tinge to the sky. If not, then you may need to calibrate your monitor. This can be leveled away pretty easily.

In addition, the vast area of sky above the tree line is probably unnecessary. I would recommend cropping close to but a little above the top of the trees, giving a panorama-like composition. In my opinion, this fills the frame with your subject and gives the overall image a more dynamic feel.

Finally, you might consider cloning out some of all of the bright white lights in the foreground. I believe these distract the viewer from the main subject. Getting rid of these would also allow you to level up the trees a bit, making them brighter and giving the overall image more punch.

While I like this pose and your use of the umbrella in this photograph, the background does not work for me. I believe the blown out sky detracts from your image, or, at the very least, does not add anything to it. I believe this same pose set against a different backdrop may have worked much better. In general it is a good idea to pay careful attention to one's background. I find that backgrounds are ignored more frequently than anything else by photographers. Careful attention to them can improve a photograph dramatically.

The model's chest is also lit slightly more than her face, which tends to pull the viewer's eyes there. A fill flash or a little dodge work in post-processing may have helped to correct this.

This photograph has potential, though, and I encourage you to continue your model work. You have working with the models down cold -- just pay attention to what's behind them. I believe it will improve your work dramatically.
