I like the lighting in the shot but I feel that of the photo were taken at more of an angle to see part of the side of the car, it would be a bit more interesting.

Love the cat shot. Nice and sharp. I like how the right side looks more mysterious.

Took this shot at my local aquarium store here.

Awesome photo, you really captured that clownfish at a good angle. Very clear, it almost looks like he glows.

Took these a while back, they are actually a cactus flower.

Great shots. Possibly lacking in sharpness a little, something to make them really leap out at you! If that makes sense.

They all look great! The first one is a little too centered for my taste though...



I think I might edit it a little more and make it lighter. Seems a little dark...

i like how you captured two fish in the same photos. the horizon line is crooked though and its a little blurry. try shooting at a higher shutter speed next time


this is a little unfocused around the stigma, but i took alot of images and coulndt get it tack sharp in that area..

Great shot. But maybe try and get the leaves in focus too? I wish it was all in focus.

The landscape looks amazing but I feel it lacks a focal point or emphasis, rather, on one element. The foreground, subject and background are all composed equally in the frame.

When you're framing a shot like the one above me, ask yourself whether you want to show the vast expanse of emptiness that leads to the mountains or would you like to show the relationship between the mountain and the sky? I would personally like to see more of the foreground and place the horizon on the upper third of the frame since that little plateau already leads your eye into the frame.

A little cropping would do wonders with the photo above me.

Hope that wasn't too much =b

here's mine subject for your criticism:



Tasteless pun =b

The sun looks great but it's a little blinding! I'd really love to see the sun directly behind the fish. Yellowfin tuna?

Try and ignore the dirty lens!
