The coloring is too intense and should be toned down by reducing the saturation. Good idea though.

too much tree; more of the girl and texture of her hair would have been a nice contrast; pretty eye(s)

very neat idea. It really shows the contrast between the rough bark and the smoothness of the girl's face

very neat shot :) The tree seems to have a green cast over it.. i'm not sure if that is because of the light coming through the leave or a possible white balance issue... good work :) = 7 - jmsetzler

Good job with DOF to keep significant detail throughout.

Good choice of subject, composition, lighting.

Interesting way to contrast something rough with something smooth

Technical Aspects8
Meets Challenge7
Total Score8

For those that are just learning, like me.

Composition: Scoring in this area is based on basic composition of a picture and includes the rule of thirds, balance, cropping, and curved and diagonal lines. Subject matter that does not lend itself to the picture or otherwise unwanted is also considered here.

Originality: Scoring in this area is based on pictures or concepts that I have seen, as well as how much effort you have invested in the picture. Usually a little something that sets it aside from a snapshot. Does it make me want to come back for another look? You know things like that.

Technical Aspects: Focus, exposure, lighting, and other special effects (done by the camera), and post processing are all considered in this category.

Meets Challenge: This is based on my interpretation of if you, have/have not, met the challenge. This is fairly simple but quite important for this site.

There are many sites that can give you assistance in achieving better skills in photography, but I think the best way to learn is to take pictures and show them to other people. Believe me when it is a good one you will know it.

Good luck!

Good composition, maybe the lower right hand side distracts from the overall image.
07/24/2002 01:20:00 PM
nice touch of human element. :)

nice way to contrast textures.

Great work thou i think the earring is a bad thing on the "nature" picture. I love the green eyes.
07/23/2002 09:01:00 PM
Pretty eye color...goes with the tree!!
07/23/2002 07:22:00 PM
the colors seem a little off in this photo...the tree is really green, the girl's skin tone is really magenta, and behind her head seems a bit yellow. and her eye color looks unnatural.

Nice composition. My only suggestion would be to move the fork of the tree up in the picture just a touch. karmat

great composition and texture contrast
07/22/2002 03:25:00 PM
Interesting portrait. The composition almost works for me. She's very attractive so I would of used her face more and taken out the ugly black blob on the lower right.
Shoot her again.....shes got super nice eyes. KEE

Wow nice eye(s).
