Photo Critique #98

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! This week we also have a special announcement leading up to our 100th photo critique!

Special 100th Photo Critique

We've been showcasing photos for open critiques for over two years. To celebrate, we're offering a special contest and critique in two weeks! Instead of one photo, we'll post five photos. In addition to critiques in the comments, our team of writers will also submit their critiques of each image. The makers of each of the five photos chosen for our 100th critique will each receive a free three-month Premium membership to the site. You have one week to submit your images for this critique in order to give our writers time to review them.

Phototuts+ would like to extend a special thanks to all of you who have submitted their images for review over the past two years and to all people who have offered their opinions and help! You have made Photo Critique Fridays fun and exciting.

Now on to this week's image:

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!

I am an amateur photographer hoping to continue learning. I've never had any direction in my photography and would like any criticism I can get. I've read a lot of the reviews offered and think that they are right on point. I would really appreciate any expert advise I can get.
