Photo Critique #111

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!

The Photograph

Photo Details & Inspiration

  • Canon AF35M
  • 38mm
  • ISO 200

This shot was made with an 1980s film point-and-shoot on 200 ISO slide film. I like playing around with these cameras for fun. I think it's almost like shooting with a toy camera because there little or no control. I drove past this scene one day and just had to stop and shoot it. I think it's very folky and American. It reminds me of a Bruce Springsteen song.

Photographer: Glenn Cooper
