Greetings from the Critique Club!

Very pleasing composition, great long exposure shot, good colours. Looks like a surreal bud vase and flower to me. The settings you used are perfect for a shot like this (scribbling down notes) Crop seems a little on the tight side - would have preferred to see the whole length of the shot going off to the right - but that's nitpicking. And you finished well and met the challenge, so no harm done.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Love these loons, they can be so difficult to shoot without getting too much washout or too many dead black areas on them. You want to give the voters as much reason as possible to see your image at its best. The main problem with this image is the size, it's so small on the short side that it's at a huge disadvantage as other are entering their images at the maximum allowed size. Not sure if the vignetting is intentional but some love it, others not so much.

Find this image to be a bit underexposed - may have been a better idea to sacrifice the shutter speed for one a little slower, and/or the aperture a bit wider, to allow in more light for what looks like a slightly backlit subject.

Otherwise a very good attempt, please keep submitting entries!

*Hello from Sid and the Critique club*

An interesting image that contributes to the open challenge.

Thank you for your interesting comments that enable a fuller understanding of the scene before us, it brings home the senseless destruction and futility of war. Shooting at full aperture works well here to illustrate the endless rows of sacrificed lives that were lost. I like your composition that is using diagonals to help increase its dynamic appeal.

I think you could have improved the end result by getting much closer to the front rows of stones so that we could actually read some detail on one or two of the stones, in that way it makes it much more personal and increases its impact, you can now identify with an individual. You would probably have needed to use a smaller aperture, you would have raised the camera above the front stones so that you could include just the rows of stones without any other background scene but with a similar soft focus effect and again using stronger diagonals.

Apologies for the delay. Thanks for your submission, Sid

Hello from the critique club...

I do enjoy the humor in this shot. There are a few things, however, that I would have liked to see. 1st of all the background is kind of boring. I understand that you were approaching this with a minimalistic view. It still would he been nice to have something other than white. Also it looks like the focus is slightly off. The two people (lego men) seem to be oof. However, the mustard jar and sword seem to be in good focus. This may have been caused by lighting. Happy shooting.

Beautifully composed. Nice leading lines. Sharp. Maybe do a bit of spot removal to eliminate surface debris near the frog?

Hello from the critique club...

1st of all for me the shot seems a little bit too dark. ( I know it is a b&w but I think it would have looked better slightly lighter). Unlike one of your comments below, I don't have a problem with the bright spots through the trees.....However, your camera angle I believe could have been altered to make a more powerful picture.

On a different note, I am not understanding your title.....However, I never score or critique based on the title.

I hope this was helpful to you. Keep shooting....

Comment by SeanPresher:
Yes, I get the idea of a graveyard, but there are a few issues I have, firstly with the bright spots coming through the trees and the then the tombs are not quite cropped well. You could have dropped the camera even lower and caught more of the foreground tomb. I am also not sure whether the image is a black and white or not. Blacks, greys and whites aren't distinguished enough. Just some constructive criticism.

The 05-02 tag doesn't seem to be in as much focus as the rest of its casket and the one behind it. Kind of expect it to be given your choice of title.
