I like all three, the reflections in the river are nice, number 2 held the least interest but I'm sure it was awesome in person, and the wagon held it's own.

Morbid! The gravestones are somewhat overexposed, I would tone down the highlights and slightly up the contrast, i.e.:

If your going to critique, you gotta post a photo!!

BTW that's Arlington Cemetery in VA., those are all the graves of soldiers that died for our country.

I think a bit too much dead space to the right past the cocktails, maybe a tad more foreground (then the person opposite won't be missing just a head), little les DoF and mwah!

Maybe a little too exposed, but I love that picture the way it is. Perfect timing!

Here's mum and the kids. There's something wrong with the photo, but I can't find out what it is exactly...

Very cool shot. I think what may have really made it though is zooming a little more on the fish. The rock is almost a distraction in a way. Get closer on the fish and put the eye at one of the "rule of thirds" intersections. The eye should be one of the main points of interest (or the main point of interest) and it is almost in the center. The main subject should not USUALLY be dead center. It does still have alot of interesting bits going for it though!

Something missing in this one for me.

Great contrast between the between the sky and the grass, with the feature tree. Maybe if the picture was taken a a slightly different angle it... there is just some thing about this picture thats off.


Here's a pic of a butterfly i took when i was in the Amazon A few weeks ago.

Beautiful little critter. Next time you go to the Amazon, call me up! (okay, I'm joking, but I REALLY want to go there).

Here's a bug shot of my own.

Lovely pics but the effect on the bottom one makes it very overexposed, perhaps tone down the effect a little.

A couple I took yesterday,

Remember folks...title of the thread is "Critique the photo above you." Offer some critique to help others with their photography, even tips and tricks if you know any, or just a couple nice words. Anyone that takes pictures knows it feels nice to hear a little positive about their work and appreciate when someone points out (tactfully) flaws and helps to help correct them.
