I wish that arm on the left were in sharper focus too; otherwise I like it a lot.

Nice crisp color and texture. Almost looks like breakfast cereal!

Technical Aspects7
Meets Challenge9
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!

nice pic

very original texture! great contrast, and great colors. I also like the lines that the limbs create, and how they converge to create a focal point.

I like the contrast and sharpness of this picture. It is simple upon first glance, but much more complex when looke at closely. karmat

Interesting view. Hum, never saw that before. Kee

Interesting crop, though I think you need more of a focal depth -- the left side seems to be out of focus.

VERY nice ! I would love to see this in b/w also. I bet that would be awesome. =8 shiiizzzam
