Greetings from the Critique Club.

It is difficult for me to critique this photo when I have no idea what you were trying to portray. Perhaps a brief description on the Photographer's Comments would have been helpful.

I must give you kudos for thinking outside the box and daring to enter something like this but as you can see, it's not the sort of thing that does well on this site.

What bothers me the most about this image is that I can't see the faces. They are there, but completely overexposed. Perhaps you could have the subjects properly exposed while you turned the background white. The composition is good.Other than that, there's really not much I can say. Keep trying!

If you have any questions of comments about this critique please feel free to PM me.

You may disagree with me, and that's okay, but this doesn't meet the spirit of the challenge in my opinion.

This is fun editing, but has no sense of portrait at all. The colors are neat but I think you need a close up of a person for it to meet the challenge.
09/16/2005 08:20:26 PM
colorful, but this is more like digital art than a portrait, portraits need to show face(s)
09/16/2005 12:55:34 PM
Not my idea of portraiture.
09/15/2005 11:49:28 PM
Not much of a portrait. The guy on the Trail 70 has style, though.
09/15/2005 10:28:52 PM
Way too overly exposed for my taste and for me, doesn't fit well into the portrait challenge compared to other entries.
09/15/2005 07:42:07 AM
not really a portrait. interesting idea. 5/10
09/14/2005 10:48:16 PM
Interesting photo, very good approach.

Cool Shot....6.335

This hurts my eyes to look at. Almost all detail is lost in this photo besides the treads of the tires. Super overexposed entries or photos processed this way aren't usually successful.

Nice effect here however I do not believe it hits the challenge very well. I believe alot of viewers may not like this image. Be prepaired.
09/13/2005 11:02:18 AM
Interesting what you've done with the colors (or lack of them). I really don't think this is a portrait, though.

like the concept but the contrast being blown out just didn't translate well for my monitor. shows up way to bright.
09/12/2005 10:38:24 PM
This is a really cool picture. I like it a lot. BUT it is not a portrait.
09/12/2005 10:01:49 PM
This is pretty cool as a digital art type piece. Not quite sure it fits for a portrait challenge though. The colors are very cool and I like how you can't see any faces. I like it being overexposed and how the last guy doesn't really quite fit in with the others. But for this challenge it doesn't seem to work, for me anyways. It's still cool though. :-)

Too much procsing for my tastes
09/12/2005 07:49:03 PM
this looks pretty cool
09/12/2005 12:36:54 PM
I love the creativity! Will get totally hammered here probably- but never stop thinking outside the box like that :-) Thumbs up!
09/12/2005 11:29:06 AM
neet idea, but waaay to bright for a portrait
09/12/2005 11:28:13 AM
Your choice of photo and processing are a bit odd to me for a portrait challenge.
09/12/2005 10:36:54 AM
wow, a Honda Trail 70 on the right...flashback for me! cool shot.
09/12/2005 09:50:06 AM
Good Picture! I like the colors on this and the exposure effect is good but seems a bit too much.
09/12/2005 07:55:04 AM
I'm not sure this fits the category of portraiture... you're sure to get a lot of comments, anyway.
09/12/2005 07:35:42 AM
I like the unusualness of this.
09/12/2005 12:52:51 AM
I feel that there isn't muh to look at here. The image is so high key, that I'm left with nothing to explore, and the lack of a specific portrait is also of concern for me.
