Greetings from the Critique Club

I want to start out by saying this would be an excellent entry for a shutter speed challenge and it would do well. As for being delicate it doesn't work at least not with that title.

I would say you need to also crop off the top so the two different backgrounds don't show and distract.

I'm not going to try to go into lighting and focus as they aren't easily apparent in this image although I do see grain indicating not enough lighting.

I'm gonna stress this again that would have been fantastic in a shutter speed challenge.

Sorry the DPC voters treated this nice shot so roughly! Don't let it discourage you! One post comment: you might try a crop at the top--the black/yellow vertical divider does not contribute to the image.

I appreciate the effect you were going for here but I think the overall image qulaity suffered as a result. The grain and blur are just too distracting.

Double exposure conveys nothing to me.

Very well done with the shutter. Great grain. An emotional photo that tells a story in pictures. 8.

I'm not sure I see delicate here, given the subject's age and clothing. NIce creativity with the double exposure; however with the muddy colors it might not communicate your vision as well as it could have. Overall, this particular shot lacks visual interest but is on the right track with creativity.

I know what you were trying to achieve but it just didn't happen here.

I'm glad that someone put a picture of a guy in here too... being a little tired of only girls being 'delicate'... though i don't really think that all the motion blur adds that much to the pic.

Emotionally disturbed people are often found among those whom society labels as 'creative'...Poe, VanGogh, Philip Dick. He may well be a poet, but the meesage I get from this picture is schizophrenic. Hopefully that's not the case, nor do I think that's what you wanted to convey. The double exposure, motion blur just doesn't work for me.

I love the double exposure and soft treatment of this! Just perfect.
