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
- Play nice! We’ve deliberately chosen photographs that aren’t perfect, so please be constructive with any criticism.
- Feel free to offer any type of advice – composition, lighting, post-processing etc.
- 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!
Photo Details & Inspiration
- Canon 500D
- 30 seconds
- 9mm Fisheye
- ISO 100
- Auto white balance
- Manual exposure mode
This shot was made at the magic fountains of Barcelona and what I wanted to capture is both the beauty of those fountains and the admiration of the people looking at the show.
There were a lot of people were moving around, but the long exposure shot lets you blur out those people and keep the ones that are standing or sitting still and admiring the show.
Photographer: Dyel Kassa Koumba
