Greetings from the Critique Club

The idea here was very creative. Love the colors and shapes. Very good lighting also.
My only nit pik here is the amount of empty space. I feel you have a just a bit too much. My recommendation would be to trim the bottom just a bit.

How in the world did I miss this? This is brilliant! And extremely well executed. And the part about the animals pestering you is just too funny. I constantly try to type around cats, so I quite understand. Grats on the top ten!!

this is absolutely brilliant .. came to your portfolio by way of leo and the dpc hats .. !! .. wot a nice surprise .. !! .. this definitely deserved a higher score in my opinion .. so excellent .. :)
just noticed you got 5 1's .. WOT !!
i really wonder about those voters .. who are they? and wot's their problem .??. consistently when voting starts i get 4's and very low votes .. this on images that end up in the 6's .. it just doesnt make sense to get such a difference of opinion unless a whole heap of those ppl are mentally challenged .. anyway .. sorry to go on .. but looking at the breakdown on this its just plain weird .. :)

Way to go Jules! I'm in self imposed exile in Delft in .nl, away from internet, but I saw this in the weekly update mail that went around - am SOOOOO happy for you. THis is a f***** awesome shot - you rule :) Is this from the same diehard 'sod ps, gimme a torch, a bowie knife and a dark room'?? So classy, so evocative, brilliantly developed....perfect postcard nostalgia. Very best, N

Terrific! And you did this with Basic editing? Wow! A seven for you.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2008 12:44:31 AM
I hope this is legal editing, because it rocks! I love it.

05/08/2008 01:19:14 PM
Very cool! Well done. With the way you've lit this, it has a hand painted look and by not placing the models (your) feet at the bottom of the frame, you've put more emphasis on the subject and created greater impact. Really good shot and nice legs too. ;)
