Photo Critique #217


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

We made it !

Photo Details & Inspiration

  • Canon 7D
  • 155mm
  • f/8
  • 1/1000
  • ISO 320

This photo was taken in France at "La Grande Motte" on the 19th of May 2013. I tried to capture the movement of the competitors as much as possible. I used the burst mode and selected the one shot where both teams were somewhat "aligned."

The shot was taken at the end of the afternoon with a lowering sun. I just desaturated it and adjusted the contrast and clarity slightly. Looking forward to hearing the feedback, comments and suggestions!

Photographer: Ramery Pierre

Please let us know what you think in the comments – how would you have approached the scene or taken the photo differently? A massive thank you to everyone who commented last week.
