good detail in the hair. nice range of tones. this is a graphic closeup study that works quite well. im assuming you shot on a dark background. the upper right sort of has a gap. bonus pts if you shot this picture in place on someone's head ;) .. mag 99

nice texture on the hair.

This is interesting texture :) I think a little tighter crop to remove the empty space at the upper right and lower left corner could be a minor improvement... good work :) = 8 - jmsetzler

nice job, i like that its in black and white because it gives better focus to the texture

what a wonderful hair picture. A good idea to have it in b/w because I think it would have lost something had it been in colour. You'd be busy looking at hair to notice its texture!

Great way to take an ordinary subject and make better, technically excellent, well composed and great variety of texture, beautiful use of black and white....10..hokie

Technical Aspects5
Meets Challenge8
Total Score6

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!

Braiding was a good idea; it kept it from just being hair. At first, I wanted it in color, but the more I look at it like this, the more I like it -- it leaves something to the imagination. karmat

Human hair... one of my favorite textures. I love to stroke it and play with it.

Black & White is a good choice for this type photograph

very good, high definition and I'd say the close-up here works a lot better for texture than the mixed hair braid shot in the challenge. 7 beegee
