This looks beautifully melancholy. I think you caught the fountain at a good time (just about to be full of bubbles?) and the lower section of trees are really pretty.

I don't know if it counts as something you could have improved, but I wish the upper section of trees was matching on the north and south of the sculpture. Either both pines (darker and more somber) or both the light, yellow-leaved spring trees (with more light and hope for the future)... the unbalance of the lightness and darkness doesn't seem to make a statement one way or the other.

So, go back in time 60 years and plant different trees, dear

The blues in this picture are phenominal and I like the way that the mirrors let you step into it. The lightpole in the background distracts me a bit but I guess they would have gotten mad if you cut it down for a photo.

Its fall, and both rolls of my film for this day came out really muted like this. I think it was just something in the air in chicago that day.

Yes, Sam, it counts as framing since the window is clearly setting off the palm. It doesn't add much context, but it definitely sets off the tree.

I wish the tree was more centered in the window, but I really like the juxtaposition of the green and the blue of the sky and building.

Awesome coloring and subject choice, and good job getting the shadow in the tile, too.

I would have seen if I could have framed the shot without the cigarette holder, myself, but maybe that was in the way of the reflection.

I love this picture, the framing is great. It seems so serene. I can't really tell what the statue is but I still am having a hard time finding something I don't like.

I haven't hosted the Cooks meeting yet, so I can't post anything from my series of lesser known kitchen implements... can y'all critique my the furthest-right image in this one, from my latest review?

Very beautiful and haunting. The framing is lovely. I dont think Id change anything about it. If I had to be really picky, Id love to see a version of this photo all the way backed out. But I would want this photo next to it still.

I was in Florida, I think it was a Wright building. I remember that there were a lot of mirrors, and for some reason all my pictures that day came out blue lol.

I like the B&W treatment of it, as well as - if I'm not mistaken - the effect the wide-angle lens has on the bowing of the door frame. I think I'd have liked it better if your subject was moved off to the left, though, as it seems like there is something interesting on the far right.

Ooh, I like the framing and her expression is really neat too. Awesome photo.

Was this candid or posed? If posed, I would have tried to nudge down her bottom button to reflect light less. Right now it stands out.


(Just realized all my critiques are super petty and OCD. )

i know the contrast in this is pretty low. the negative was thin. i didnt shoot it perfectly, and the burning in could've been better. this is also not a scan of the photo but a photo of it. so it's not high quality.

however...its my friend margaret years ago in this abandoned house i took photos in for 3 years. it was my sanctuary, my secret magic place, until it was bulldozed.

through the photos and their hanging in a local cafe where i worked, the last child to live in the house found me. and i met his family, and spoke with them about the magic of the house, which they too had felt. we became fast friends and still talk to this day.

I love how old school this looks. It reminds me of a technique I messed around with when I was in photography in high school.

Hit "Make a post" at the bottom and mouseover the "i" at the top right of the box. Then look at the very last set of instructions.

Stop it you are gonna make me blush. And although I am pale I am mexican so I dont blush.

I was just going on a walk downtown instead of being at school. And all the trees were changing colors, and it was right before they shut off all the fountains for winter. It was a nice day to be a photography nerd.

Nice! I love, love, love black and whites. The way the clothes blend with the darkness in the room leaves an air of mystery. The shadowy darkness on the left distracts a bit from the overall effect, but this is great...is it you?

You saying that isn't a kitchen implement? I'd say you need to get more creative with where you use it...

I love the middle one using negative space almost as framing. (since im trying to keep it on topic) And the last one I love how the trees and the way your hand is with the sky above it all seems to draw me right in to the toy. It is very pretty.

I really like your watch

Otherwise I like how the flogger stands out from everything else. From a review standpoint I might have tried to keep your thumb down a bit more to show more of the handle, but I know that sometimes it doesn't always work that way.
