*Critique CLub*

Your idea here is very good, it would make for some good photojournalism but it is to soft. You need to sharpen it up a bit. Tools was the challenge subject and the tool in this case appears to be a baseball bat, and it should be the main subject not a blurry little area of the photo.

Looking at the photo in a fast glance many voters would have given you a low score not seeing the baseball bat. Might I strongly suggest you don't use "Untitled" as a subject. I feel a photo without a title is missing part of it's personality as well as part of the photographers personality. As I look at it I would easily title it something like "Meet my brother the Louisville Slugger" Simply knowing most people know that a Louisville Slugger is a bat, it would make the average voter stop and realize there was a bat in the photo and that is what you wanted the voter to recognize as the tool.

This is certainly genuine and these shots are tough to capture. I believe this is worth full marks for its courage and journalism. Technically, it's a bit soft so it gets a 9, but the capture is great.

More value should be placed on opportunistic shots like this - it's why the camera is such a valuable tool itself. I hope yours scores higher than my Desolation shot. ;)

have to hunt for the tool, seems a moment before the "ideal" shot. Background a bit busy too.

Looks like a 'shoot the picture and run' situation... nice capture, a little hard to see what he is holding...

angry tools
08/28/2003 05:52:37 PM
Is that a fight happening?
08/28/2003 02:29:50 PM
there's a story here, but it's too difficult to see based on the way the shot is framed.

tools ?they may look a little wierd but that is a really harsh description

Tools of trade... This is great candid shot. Love the facial expressions of the two man facing me. Too bad it's a bit out of focus.

?cant understand?

Interesting shot, but hard to see what tool is involved, or what it's role is.
08/27/2003 01:56:34 PM
are you talking about the bat or the guy? :) nice capture. good composition.

I suppose the guy wielding the tool could be a tool himself? Could have used a title. Perhaps: Tool wielding a tool" or something along those lines.

Very photojournalistic. It's a tad out of focus though, but hey, I wouldn't want to get any closer to the action either...
