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 PowerShot SX130 IS
  • 52mm full frame equivalent
  • f/4
  • 1/20
  • ISO 1600

I have very recently started into photography with my point-and-shoot camera. I was capturing the architectural designs of the monument that I was visiting when I saw the role lights played inside the place. I saw a kid walking by, and he made up for a great contrast. That is when I made this picture.

To me, the image is about vitality of light. While the light is bursting with energy, the kid seems to be gloomy and lost in his thoughts.

Photographer: Ujjawal Chauhan
