I am a Junior in high school, and we were assigned this for a classroom grade. I realize that I may not be a professional photographer, but I like this picture. Some of the people I have class with had the same subjects, but we all used different techniques, and shots.

This person was a popular model for this challenge! Well, you sized your entry so it was large enough to see clearly. You did a decent job with keeping the background simple without a lot of clutter. You could stand to further enhance the picture using your post processing software to add a little more contrast and bump up the color saturation a bit more... The only other comment would be to study the style of the photographer this challenge was about a bit more. Her style is more about levitation, and you have clearly shown leaping! Nice job overall.

More of a jump than levitation, and I'm not too fond of the look on the model's face. The lighting is a little washed out. But it's a good attempt

As a photographer I truly appreciate the idea of what appears to be a class doing this challenge as a project. If this is the case then please do not be discouraged by the score... which I am sure is fairly low. Of the shots that are obviously done for the class project the series with this girl are the best. Natsumi generally takes photographs that seem to be more natural even though they are staged. This one seems staged and is more of an action shot then a levitation shot. Also, if you would have moved slightly to your left you probably could have taken the shot without the bench giving a better illusion of levitation.

If photography is something that interests you then there is no better site to learn on than this one, so please kep submitting and learn as you go.
