Greetings from the Critique Club
By Inspzil

Composition - I think this is a good image, but there are a couple things that I think would've helped you score a little better. Firstly I will say that the idea is very good and I think the picture as a whole works. The first picture has a pretty light colored background with the clouds. I would rather have seen that be a little less clouded as I think it would provide a little more contrast with the angel and been a little more consistent with the right angel. The center pic could also use a little more contrast with the background. The third one is good as is I think because his head is a little darker than the left one so he has enough contrast.

Technical - All well taken photos. The other thing that I think would've made this score better is that the pictures are so small and the black area around it is really large and heavy. The details would've shown up much better if the individual pictures were all substantially bigger with the title down at the bottom and thinner lines between the photos.

Overall - Well done as it is, but I think some slight changes could have made significant improvement to your score, not that you did poorly by any means. Bringing the figures closer to the viewers makes the photos that much more poignant and emotive. I would understand more if the photos were small to show insignificance or some other characteristic associated with that, but I don't believe these figures or the cross are meant to show insignificance by any means. Well I hope that helps some. Great pic and keep shooting. Good luck in future challenges. - Bob

excellent composition... black and white was a good choice... the perspective on the cross is also excellent... the celtic knots detail shows nicely :) - setzler

Nice work! I think "awaits" needs a noun to act upon, so "Heaven Waits" may be more appropriate. But that's from grading all of my student papers this semester. the tones and contrasts here work well, and I like how the frames added together make synergy.

I like how you did this. The 3 photos go well together and are unique.

Nicely arranged, and generally purple is a spiritual color. The angel on our right is a hair too dark on the face. Nothing major though. :-) The clouds are beautiful. Black and white was a good choice here. High score.

beautiful b&w's and great perspective. i love the clouds in the 2nd and 3rd images...too bad that first statue wasn't positioned properly to catch the cloud light the same way. Nice job!

Angel on the left seems somewhat out of focus. Great cross and contrast.

Nice. I would have used larger photos however.

Lovely images, especially with that regal, cloudy sky in the background. Your choice of font and color for the script really adds a delicate air to this.

Very nice! The lighting is consistent in all three shots and it's nice and clear.
