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
- Play nice! We’ve deliberately chosen photographs that aren’t perfect, so please be constructive with any criticism.
- Feel free to offer any type of advice – composition, lighting, post-processing etc.
- 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!
Photo Details & Inspiration
- Canon EOS 450D
- 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.
