Critique Club Review:

Except for the hair style, this could be an 80 year old picture.

Depth of field is used well to set the subject apart from the rest of the image. Though I might have preferred even a bit shallower depth of field.

Lighting is very good for this piece, and a very good job of capturing a "far away" look in the subject's eyes.

Good job of not letting the whites get blown out, or the contrast too shallow.

A good photo tells a story, and this one tells a story of a young lady whose mind is elsewhere.

Good job.


Many thanks for a good critique Alex, it's much appreciated.

This is so great! I looks so nostalgic. Like it was taken in the 40's or something!
I love it!

reminds me of Manet. maybe that's neat image? you perhaps went too far with it, though I do kinda dig the painting effect. 7 You know, I was worried about neat image on the face, but now I'm starting to think she just looks like that. bump to 9

Reminds me of an image from a book or magazine. Just very dreamy and thoughtful.

Good shot of what appears as a person day dreaming at the job. The white labels on the bottles at her cheek are a little distracting

OK, I'm guessing that she realised she had a camera pointing at her but the lovely distant look in her eyes makes the viewer feel they are intruding into her private dream moment. Lovely B&W conversion

I really like this candid. I like the post processing technique and the model is beautiful.

This is an interesting portrait. I like the composition, with the rack of mugs in the foreground leading the eye towards your subject.

Very calming and yesteryear feel to this. Good work. 7

I like the processing on this.

Her face sticks out to me as looking as though it has been over-adjusted. Her eyes and forehead look like they were lightened, and it gives her a "bandit mask" tanline appearance.

looks a bit overprocessed :-(

almost a 50s feel here, very vintage, 7

Composition doesn't quite work for me. The shot is wonky and the bottles right by the face takes away from her expression. The eye finds it hard to know where to settle and what to focus on. The shot needs more of a sense of story.

Nice capture - Like the steam for mood.
