Hey Marge. Didn't get to vote this, actually, but I would've given it an 8. It's very well done, IMO.
Again, I'd've gone for a tighter vertical crop for this, drastically lessening the black negative space and and giving the viewer that almost "claustrophobic" feel.
But that's just me.;p

Hi Margie!

Nice work here! I'll echo what others have said about the reflected light, that's really an inventive and yet totally commonplace use of a single light source. Heh! I might have tried to shoot this a more of a side angle so it looked more candid - it's easier to sneak up on people from the side than straight on, so a slightly sideways shot might have looked more.. natural? believable? Not sure of the word I'm searching for. Congrats on finishing in your own top four!

Hello from Álex, CTP MkII

First Impression: Very clever shot.
Composition: OK, but maybe is too space up the subjects and subject is too centered, but not sure
Subject: very appropiate for the challenge. I think is original that the single light source is on the hands of the subject and the reflection is what lighten the scene.
Technical: very good IMO, very natural colors, good focus and lighting.
Improvement: maybe the composition, as told. I'm not sure, but you could have tried to crop leavin more black space on the left and so centered off the subject.
Summary: Intelligent idea and good realization, congrats on your third highest score

Nice shot. I like the tent effect and framing of the girl with light then darkness.

Brilliant shot. An excellent example in reflective lighting. Nice use of negative space and comp is great. Intersting subject that I think everyone can relate to. 10

Why not crop this a lot tighter and make it more personal? You might lose some focus that way, but I think that would be better than all the negative space. Just my opinion.

ahh - brings back childhood memories of staying up later than allowed. Nice use of lighting and excellent exposure control. Focus looks sharp. I like the catch lights in the eyes
