OK. Could someone please explain to me how a little guy like that could carry, or even lift, that brute tuna?

This is cute, but as I'm sure you know it's out of focus...Also, the subject is a bit too centered for my liking.

I'm just starting to get into the photography hobby. Be harsh, I need to learn.

I like them both! The angel fish is cut off at the bottom which spoils the shot just a little.

Thanks for the feedback! For some reason your second picture doesn't appeal to me. Maybe it's the angle? I think the giraffe picture is really good, but the shadows across the face don't look very good. Shot later/earlier in the day it could look really good, I think!


Something feels really off about this picture, but I don't know what it is.

Love how focused the dog is!

here is my shot of a monkey I took and he/she just looked sad so I had to pet it after which made it mad

I think this photo would look better if the body of the monkey was cropped out which would focus your attention to its face.

Hey Li@m, nice shot! my critiques are that I think the sky could be less washed out and the image seems like it has white speckles throughout.

And here is mine

Can't really go wrong with flowers . Very nice exposure on that shot. I had the same problem you have with your watermark before I fixed mine... you should try lowering the opacity to blend it more so it's less noticeable. Otherwise, good shot.

Here's mine: Big Sur, CA

Nice shot, Nick. Love the subject, I've stood right there on that little recess off the road. Only thing I'd have suggested would have been a landscape view, like, with a view of the ocean off to the left so you could see the dramatic dropoff (also, isn't there a bridge to the left of the frame? Or is that a different spot on the same road?). I don't know how wide a shot you could have gotten with the lenses you had at the time, though. Other than that, it seems sort of flat and could benefit from some bumped-up contrast/slightly higher saturation, esp. in the water. I do absolutely love the gradient of the sky color, though. Just feel like it could have benefited from a wider view.

Here's mine, taken weekend before last in my pool. I had to lean with my waist just over the edge of the pool deck (so my entire upper body was above the water) to get the shot how I wanted it to turn out; my parents would've killed me if they saw it! lol

Sorry, I'm not posting a photo critique or photo. I just wanted to point out that I believe the white speckles are actually raindrops from a cloudburst. I'm inferring that from him posting "When it rains in the Amazon...it really rains!" right above it.

Kiran - Thanks for the critique! yes there is a bridge off to the left lol. It didn't quite fit what I was looking for so I cropped what I had out. I think I shot a landscape shot too, let me find it. About the color bumping/saturation, if I overdid it, it wouldn't look real. I'm not a fan of that type of photography lol.

Thats a great shot! Lovely blue color, great texture on the frog. My only complaint is I wish it was on a more natural floatation device. Like a log or rock, but I know most people don't throw mazanita into their pool. Great shot

My cat had 7 kittens and they are finally at the cute stage.

Hey Caton, Great Shot! The Kitten is extremely cute. My critique would be that the focus appears to be on the boot strap opposed to the kitten itself unless it was planned. Again Great Shot!

I find the photo to be overexposed and oversaturated. Maybe that's the look you were going for, though. Nice composition either way. The only suggestion I would have made on the composition would to have some extra space on the left side.

the lighting is good kiran, but it seems to lack a main subject. the lines in the photo from the tile and railing lead my eye up and off the page.


here is a photo of a bald eagle. i wish there was something i could do to make it POP against the leaves
