Friday Photo Critique #80

Read Time:1 minLanguages:

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!

This picture is from my backyard in Belgium, it was taken this December. Because of the time of the year the sun was at a very low angle, creating a nice effect in the forest.

I saw how the light was shining through the trees and the shadows that were being created and suddenly felt the need to capture the moment. This is what I came up with.

Photographer: Annelies Van den Bergh
