Read Time: 2 mins

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

  • Nikon D5100
  • 22mm
  • 1/800
  • f/5
  • ISO 500

I did a car shoot with a friend's BMW. It was a sunny day with some clouds at the science center. The sun was around mid-noon with clouds helping my lighting angle. I upped the exposure rather than flash and the patterns of the floor and windows made a nice scene.

This was the first shoot I did where I didn't expected the outcome of the area and lighting to match exactly what i was aiming for. The original already looked good, but after I edited it and got this look I was more than pleased. Since this being my was first unexpected right-place-at-the-right-time picture, I decided to frame one of the shots and hang it up on my bedroom wall. Photography is awesome!
