The skin is not really that "textured", and that's a compliment to the model. This is a well executed photo that washed out just a touch on the side of the nose. It seems that a little different framing (more eyebrow and a touch more chin) could make this "portrait" even better. 7 nards656

I wish there was a little more detail of variation in the upper left area.

Technical Aspects8
Meets Challenge8
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!

Skin is a wonderful representation of texture, but baby skin would be even better.

skin does have texture. if the light was at a different position you would show more texture. upper left of photo appears washed out

I was wondering if anyone would do a soft or smooth texture instead of the anticipated rough. Nice to see a break from the norm.
