Critique Club Review:

Color Saturation and Hue: All three are done well. Nothing is over saturated, hues are realistic, skin tones are great.

Brightness and contrast: Contrast is excellent, however it appears that to get the reflection bright enough, the highlights such as the gloved hand, and some areas on the back of the head, are blown out and featureless.

Focus and depth of field: Focus is excellent. Depth of field is good, but I find myself wondering if I like the back of the head soft or not.

The background in this image is a bit distracting. The grid pattern changes from the top to the bottom of the picture, and then there is that featurless bright white area at the upper left of the image that distracts a bit. Since this is an advanced editing challenge, the white spot, and the brightness of the gloves and head covering could be dealt with.

I really like the reflection in the wafer. Crisply sharp, and great detail. The pose works very well. The intent gaze of the subject at the wafer is very appropriate for this job illustration.

Very nice work. Congratulations on your top 25 finish.

Where'd you get the wafer?

I'll be surprised if this isn't on the first page or two. Very well done.

i like the choice of reflection to show the face - good control of focus

sweet photo, good luck

that´s a good idea, but it´s not clear what the white thing at the left corner is.

the eyes just don't seem right

I kinda like the almost cross-eyed look. Neat idea for the challenge, too!

nice shot except for the white blobby things on left...can't see what they are, they draw the eye away from you.

I wish I knew what those white things were on the left and right. I'm certain afterwards, you can explain. :~)

So do I. If I brought a camera in I'd get fired though.
Really strong photo but the image on the back of the wafer dwarfs the subject a bit too mush so you dont immediately realize this is a reflection.

I wonder how many people will realize this is a reflection. I only realized after trying to figure out what the bright white bit was in the lower left corner.

This photo is almost a nightmare to me actually. I worked for a company that made RAM wafers that look much like what you're holding. The bunny suits, oh god, the suits... Man, I hated that place!
