What I like:
- It's quirky, made me smile
- The lighting is great

What I don't like:
- I feel like this is trying to convey some message- but I can't figure out what it is.

Overall: I would hang this on my wall- I'm okay with not knowing what it is trying to say: great conversation starter.

Greener than green
by CocoCoco

Comment:
What I like:
- Vibrant colors.

What I don't like:
- The horizon is in the center of the frame- making for competing subjects

Overall:
- I'm not a big landscape person, so take this review with a grain of salt. But I find the sky more dynamic and interesting than the land and wish the camera had been pointed a bit more up. That, of course, would lesson the adherence to the theme. With the lines formed from the grass running up the building- I wonder if this would have been a bit more dynamic (for the land) if the photographer had turned more towards 2 o'clock- allowing the lines in the grass to flow towards the building more directly- and chop out more of the sky.

Run

What I like:
- The movement of the children contrasting against the stillness of the tree.
- The framing of the children by the tree branch
- Composure is awesome!

What I don't like:
- Children are out of focus
- Pretty much everything is out of focus, giving the shot more the appearance of a painting than a photograph. Some may like this effect, I don not.
- Girl's clothing is burnt out. Can't really see the pink flowers- if the balance was better on this pic, those flowers would really pop making the framing even better. If the tree branches were made selectively brighter, it would burn out the distracting building in the background. I'd have tried to take a second picture after the children ran by and exposed for the tree. (I, however, have no idea how to do this- I'm more a darkroom editor and I would have selectively exposed the tree longer than the kids.)

Overall: Great idea, but lack of focus for the children takes away from overall mood.

Comment:
What I like:
- It's quirky
- That bug has style. Awesome subject
- Great bokeh

What I don't like:
- Bug is a bit small in overall frame. I found myself leaning closer to my screen to try to make out more detail.

Overall: Love the subject, wish it was in better focus and took up more of the frame.

Refreshing
by GeorgesBogaert

Comment:
What I like:
- The lines

What I don't like:
- The grass is not the subject, but rather the fence. So while I really like this picture of the fence (especially how depth of field was used to make it fade and become less distinct/ appear to have less containing force) it doesn't really scream "lawn" to me.

Overall:
Neat shot, but didn't capture the assignment for me.

Life in the Lawn
by vawendy

Comment:
What I like:
- the colors are vibrant
- great job finding that tiny tic!
- the lines
- the boka is very lovely
- competing but complementing sujects of flower and bug

What I don't like:
- depth of field is a bit too shallow for this subject matter- can't see enough of the flower

Overall: lack of focus distracts from having a strong subject

the great outdoors
by tvsometime

Comment:
What I like:
- The triangle of red from the hat, the flag and the flag on the sigh
- How the red stands out from the green
- good exposure

What I don't like:
- Tree coming out of the man's head
- we can't see what the man's looking at. So it feels as if the picture's story is incomplete.

Overall:
- lacks a strong subject

Mow Challenge
by HUETH

Comment:
What I like:
- The sheer number of lines and angles makes for an interesting shot
- I like the gradient from bright sky to dingy soffit
- It is an interesting take on the subject.
- I generally just like dystopic/ desolate pictures.

What I don't like:
- The colors. Yes the orange contrasts highly with blue, and that can make for a an eye catching photo or an unsettling mood- which would go well with the overall feel of this shot. But I feel like in this photo, the contrast between the blue and orange is too much and strains the eyes. Making it hard to look for a long time.
- It grainy.

Overall: Great idea, fair execution
