just under deadline so not too much time to explain, this is from my refraction of light challenge, called Eye was framed. I received commments about being out of focus and that I should have had more color in the picture. Post processing, made the picture not as I expected, abit harsher, but this was the only time I could take the pic and PP. Ill post a link so you can see after the challenge no more time.AHHHH!

Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: Great focus on the water, but I think that I prefer the original with more water and a bit more shallow depth of field.

Lighting: You lighting is a bit harsh. The shadows on the left and the highlights on the right contrast a bit too much for my personal taste.

Composition/Content: Definitely another great capture, but, as I mentioned above, I think you need more of the water in the frame.

My Opinion: Reading back through the comments on your last one, you did exactly what the voters asked, and they scored you lower. I think both images are very nice and creative, but I prefer the original.

Oooh, now that was a tough one to reshoot I'm sure. I like the splash of color in this one, much more vibrantwith the orange and blue contrasting in the water. I also like how you are more in focus. Very cool and bumping up cause I know this had to be hard, especially to get a shot framing the eye again. :)

Another good capture here Joe. Perosnally I preferred the original. I think the capture of the water was better as far as position, but the color of your shirt in this one may bring out a tad more interest in the reflection. Good shot overall and bumping up 1.

For the life of me I can't find the original on this one. I remember it and I know this one is much better but I like comparing them if possible. This is very well done and I would love to know how you did it. I'm guessing mirror? An 8 to start but bumping to a 9 because I know it's a really nice improvement over the original :)

I liked the original...but this one seems to have more appeal. The stare and the shirt colour.

Great reshoot dude! How you manage to capture the sharpness in the water is beyond me :) Great job.

Odd title, but quite a good photo. I like the colors and the low sunlight.

Wow! The stop-action water is great... but that guy in the background scares me! ;-)

better the second time around...well done! I have a water shot for the green challenge and they are HARD to do...as I found out, you get drenched and make a mess and shoot 300 frames for one good shot, so well done
