Photo Critique #210

Read Time:2 minsLanguages:

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

  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2
  • 14mm
  • f/11
  • 4 seconds
  • ISO 100

I recently visited Birmingham (UK) for the first time. I had very little time to dedicate to photography, so I packed my Lumix GF2 with the standard 14-42mm lens and headed to Birmingham. I researched before what the city had to offer and I learn about this amazing building: The Bullring Shopping Center.

Being one of the most photographed building in UK, I tried to get the building from a less common point of view. So I went at night, placed the camera down low, composed the shot and waited for some incoming traffic to add some light trails. Luckily enough, a double deck bus passed in front the camera adding a more interesting trail.
