Critique Club Review:

Color Saturation Hue: N/A Brightness and contrast: Overall brightness and contrast are fair. Nothing is too bright. The highlights are well under control. However, the man's face looses detail and starts to dissapear into the shadow. On the other hand, a very nice job of lighting the girl's face.

Focus and depth of field are very well done.

The cords and objects to the left of the girl are somewhat distracting. Were they removed, it would be a cleaner composition. I think the image would also be stronger if it were cropped shorter. The empty space at the top of the frame winds up being wasted, and the dust or scratch marks at the upper left of the frame, mar the blankness of the space.

Nice use of different shapes from the mattress to the shape of the mattress itself and the wave in the background , nice shot.

Good shot but I would have cropped it tighter.

I already gave you a 9, just back to comment. I love the composition in this. Black and white works well with the checks in the mattress. The only thing I would have done is move the electrical cord out of the shot. Nice!

Great idea and nicely composed and framed. A bit more detail and better focus would have helped.

Cool patterns and angles. Lighting is uneven.

very artistic, a little blurry and could use some slight cropping. Nice tennis shoes by the way.

Excellent lines and layers in this image. The transition from deep blacks through the black/white/grey plaid to the lightly textured floor and ending with a backdrop of the smooth wall. This would make and excellent print as the small 640 size hides the details in the clothing. There is a wonderful casualness to the capture, yet it doesn't drop to triteness of a snapshot.
