Photo Critique #130

by

Friday Photo Critique is our weekly community project, where we publish a photograph submitted by one of our wonderful readers, then ask you all to offer constructive feedback on the image. It’s a great way to learn more about photography, express your viewpoint, and have your own image critiqued!


Quick Ground Rules

  1. Play nice! We’ve deliberately chosen photographs that aren’t perfect, so please be constructive with any criticism.
  2. Feel free to offer any type of advice – composition, lighting, post-processing etc.
  3. You can also link to photographs that you feel offer a great example of this type of image shot exceptionally well.

Without further ado, here is this week’s candidate for Friday Photo Critique!


The Photograph


Photo Details & Inspiration

  • Canon EOS 450D
  • 10mm
  • f/11
  • 1/320
  • ISO 200

I was experimenting with exposures, filters, colour settings and subjects on a beautifully sunny day at the beach. I had been taking pictures of the pier where the banister was the focal point disappearing into the distance giving the image depth. Suddenly, a stranger stepped into my shot. thoughtfully looking down into the sea. Once I took the shot, I realized both the black and white of the pier stood out, with the stranger on the pier giving the shot a new reflective, moody feeling.

Photographer: Chris Hodgson
