::: Critique Club :::

Hi, my name is Kari and from the critique club.

First Impression - the most important one:
Very ole worldy. kinda a cool concept.

A little more cropping on the right would have moved the little girl into the thirds line nicely and not detracted from the shot. The hill creates a lovely leading line for the eye to follow.

Well the title meets the challenge ... but i am not sure the picture could stand on its own.

Technical (Colour and light):
lovely sepia tonings and natural light. The picture is a little soft focus on the kids though.

To grow its vote?:
There are a couple of things ... crop tightly on the kids to include less of the shed but have it peeking at the right of the shot ... this would have created a focus on the kids and their holding of the bible.

Also think about how the shot stands without the title itself.

Good shot .. and lovely image well done.

If you've got any questions about this critique, please feel free to contact me via
the PM system.

This is a lovely image but rather title dependent for it's link to success. Still one of my top scoring images in the challenge though.

Perhaps a little more wide-angle would have given better result.
