The shot is pretty well taken, but I just noticed the statue has "hair". The hair is on the dark side (hard to see dark). Focal range is amazing (except maybe the thumb). Personal conflict: Site rules talk about "other's art", but I like taking photos of statues, I've rewritten this comment ten times and still sounds like whining about an issue I am conflicted on. 6 Swash

The black bg blends a little too much with the top of the figure, in comparison to the awesome contrast it creates at the bottom. Texture 3 Personal Impression 3 6 nards656

very nice composition on this piece... this is definitely an interesting piece of artwork. I have no real complaints about this one... the hand in the lower right is slightly out of focus, but I don't think it's creating any problems in this image... good shot :) = 8 - jmsetzler

I think this should have been named "A face only a mother could love". lol
I like the lighting and color, an all around good picture.

Portrait- 1 (Joking!)

Meets Challenge8
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!

I like the way you have framed this, and the focus you have used. I think somehow showing the head more, simply because it is so intriguing. karmat

Nails are too dark and don't making enough impact on the image. Maybe different angle - from the top?
