Shot this on the balcony of setting sun, though no redish shades have come...

Could not get contrasting background or blurred one so just had this white wall..

framing is really experimental, "framing police" may fine me for this :(

we hate when a border is "different", we hate when rule of third is missed by 1/2 a cm and so on.

I still think the border is good.I had printed this pic and gifted to my friend with a colored frame resembling the border here. Everyone like it...

Basically people only noted the border, no one cared about the expression caught or the lack of contrast.
To me those were the two key things...

This photo does NOT deserve 4.5, so I am just taking +ve out of it :)

In general, I have learned everything here and I appreciate/respect their feedback.


I get what you're saying and if someone you gave this to loves it then that is great! However submitting it to a challenge we cannot be expected to take that into consideration. I think, in general, you will find most serious photographers will not like a border, especailly one like this. For me, I feel it adds nothing to the image. A portrait of a mother and her child is beautiful enough to stand on its own. But again, these are just my thoughts. Everyone is different.

Grog has had long hard journey to distant land, but is near end. Grog must cross border now, but is hard because border is large and bright and hurts Grog's eyes.

I'm afraid that the border absolutely kills this one.

boarder is a no-go in my eyes

what is up with this border?! next time maybe do a solid color, like black or something that compliments the photo nicely. also when it comes to teeth and editing, the final product needs to still look natural.

whoa! sorry but that border has GOT to go, there also seems to be some strange coloration on her teeth from the editing process, cute baby tho
