Photo Critique #153


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

  • 1/100
  • ISO 100

I woke up far too early one morning, and decided to go for a walk. I was at the local park and saw this bench, and thought that coupled with the dense fog, it could be a nice photograph.

I wasn't going for anything particular, but thought that it gave off the idea of looking out on an empty world quite nicely.

Photographer: Trent Jorgensen
