Greetings from the Critique Club.

Hi Helena,

Welcome to DPC! Congratulations on your first challenge submission - that's a big first step.

This is a difficult one to critique as there is nothing technically wrong, and I don't have much to go on in terms of your comments. The main issue here is one of composition. I recommend you take the time to read this tutorial on composition -> here

Based on this shot there are thwo aspects that I believe you should begin to consider. The first is colour: these greys tend to make an image look flat, and don't engage the voter. On DPC the voters usually like a nice bit of pop in the shots. The second is leadign lines: in this shot the pattern in the material leads the viewers eye right off the image, so there is no real focal point.

It is my hope that these insights are helpful and constructive. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions regarding this critique. And please remember to mark it "Helpful" if you found it so. Good luck with future challenges.

Good patterns, but would like to see more light on background.

bit boring and the direct use of the flashlight is nor really atractive.
