Critique Club Critique

(1) COMPOSITION (CONTENT) Very powerful composition. You have put together all of the emements of a very strong composition: leading lines, strong diagonals, rule of thirds, bright vibrant colors... I could go on and on.

(2) BACKGROUND I love the background that you have used, the wonderful texture of the top side of the shell is a perfect contrast to the smoothness of the bottom part of the shell.

(3) CAMERA WORK ,TECHNICAL Exposure seems a right on to me. The lighting is so perfect here, I can not begin to tell you how to improve this.

(4) DIGITAL PROCESSING ,TECHNICAL Good processing. The colors are wonderful, they seem to just "pop". I sm very glad you did not put a border on this, that would have distracted from the overall compositiion.

(5)MEETING THE CHALLENGE This photo does a very good job of meeting the challenge. I love the humor that you injected into the subject.

(6) MY OPINION ON THE PHOTO A very beautiful photo. I would love to see this hanging in a childs room, both the subject and the bright clean colors would make it perfect.

Sumptuous shapes and colors lighted with imagination, a real delight until the eye meets this thing. Of all things and with such a setup! I sure hope you have made some shots with alternative strangers.

great creativity, color and composition.

Well set up. Neat lighting, how did you do that part (blue)? Neat use of mixed props. Very good technically. (I'm in a bad mood, but this is better than a 9, so up you go!) 10 Swash

great color, texture, and lighting. Goofy doesn't do much for me but I could think of anything else that would work. High marks for idea and quality.

Is that a shell? I love the colours. It is hard to see what Goofy has in his hand, It appears to be just slightly out of focus but the sharpness of the colours is good.
