CRITIQUE CLUB CRITIQUE

This shot, though not a portrait, obviously, is a great example of catching a "slice of life" so to speak. It is a picture that speaks volumes. It meets the challenge, and is very interesting besides. I like the expression on the boys' faces. It is like they are saying, "Whoa, what is that?" And the fellow in the middle provides such a neat contrast -- he is older, of a different ethnic/racial origin, and looks more traditional in a way. His shirt is also a nice touch as it is what drew me into the picture.

My only suggestions would have been a sharper focus. I don't know what your settings were, so if the lighting would have allowed it, a faster shutter speed may have help prevent some of the softness. Also, the background is a little busy, but it fits with the tone of the picture, I think.

Nice work, and best to you in future challenges.

Good 'journalism' shot. And yes, I'm happy you left the popcan and enough to suggest a setting.

cool. I love the bright colours of the boys's hair, however seems to me you added another element of "black and white" which makes the color interpretation very interesting. Good eye. Jacko. 9 Lacks a little sharpness.

Interesting people - very distracting at the top of the photo (top right). Is this guy famous?

This is a great social commentary photo. Now if only you could crop the distracting top part off and had a sharper image...

I love this because it meets the challenge perfectly and also has tons of color where most people wouldn't think of looking. Nice shot.

Excellent capture! Definitely fits the challenge well... Wish it was a bit sharper, and that I could see the face of the guy in the center a bit better.
