this is ineteresting texture... I wish the background around the outside of the bird design was a little darker to offer some more contrast in the iimage... The lighting may need to be reduced a little bit as well... = 6 - jmsetzler

Nice detail, subtle color. Did grandma do the embroidery?

Really nice choice of subject, good framing, lighting.

Nice texture and I like the tight crop. i think maybe an angle that wasn't straight on would make it more interesting. karmat

I really like the colors, texture and the placement of the bird. There's not much I can say against it. I might have shown the entire bird, but cropping it the way you did just seems to work.
I'll give it a 9

Technical Aspects6
Meets Challenge7
Total Score7

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!

This photo shouts texture! My only quible maybe a little overexposed?
