Photo Critique #90

Read Time:1 minLanguages:

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!

This was taken at the Cleveland Dam in North Vancouver/The Rockies. I was touring with a friend and it was a typically grey, ugly Vancouver spring. Warm enough to burn the damp off of the trees, as everything was misty. I used my eye-hook and spool of string technique to stabilize the shot. I used Photoshop's infrared BW filter to bring up the blacks and added a colour burned border.

Photographer: Chris Livingston
