Greetings from the Critique Club

First Impressions:

Great perspective!

Technical (Comp, lighting, color, focus, Processing):

You framed this shot really well and it looks great. If I were to nitpick I would say it would be nice to have something in the frame that would showcase the height of the object but overall it is quite nice.

Lighting is good for the and the only issue I have is the slightly blown out area in the upper left but the light and shadows on the subject all look lovely. I wonder if you cold have shot this from the other side to get the sun behind you; that would help the bright area of sky and the bit of glare at the top of the subject.

The focus is good but overall very soft. I think with the tones you went with the softness works well but overall it could be a bit sharper. The overall processing seems nice, the contrast works well and I love the colors you have and tone. If this was an advanced editing challenge I would suggest lightening some of the shadow areas just a touch and maybe sharpen.


Meets the challenge very well


The tones and color and angle really give this a nice artistic shot.


Congrats on a personal best and good finish. And all of this with a point and shoot camera, nice work. Keep shooting and entering the challenges. Make sure you brace yourself when you take shots to eliminate camera shake especially if you are zoomed in, this will help the sharpness of your shots. Overall this shot did quite well in the challenge with just a few technical details (focus, light) keeping you below a 6.

Looks good in sepia, great atmosphere. The perspective you used kinda miniaturizes the roller coaster, would have loved a POV that would showcase its height. Still a very good image over all. 7

I have seen plenty of photos like this but you still did a great job. The tones are nice and the only issue I have is the small blown out area on the left but I don't think that is really an issue.
