Greetings from the Critique Club

Like many other people who looked at this image and commented, my first reaction was "oh, how very sweet!" It was a delightful moment and a good capture. It tells a good sports story.

Technically, I think your image was well exposed and you managed to get it at a time when you could avoid harsh shadows (or you compensated for them in RAW). Nice.

Compositionally, I too would prefer to see a closer crop. It's an intimate moment, and could use an intimate frame for that moment.

I look forward to seeing more of your work. You brought me down memory lane for a moment when I saw the city of Catania in your profile. I visited Sicily for a few weeks a while ago and was enchanted with your beautiful island. But only spent a few brief hours in Catania at the airport...

cute, way to catch a moment. Composition seems a little funny to me. Might have cropped a little tighter, maybe.

Nice photo with a lot of sensitivity. Cropping the photo and eliminating a lot of the grass would have added to the intimancy to the photo.

Well, it's about a sport. The colors and lighting are excellent. I just wish there was action in the shot. When I think of a sports shot, I think of something like you would see on the cover or Sports Illustrated or on the front page of the newspaper. The quality of this photo is good, but it doesn't seem to have that same "wow" factor.
