Otto:

#1 There are a few things that bother me here. A) the picture behind her head. B) her three missing limbs. Cropping at just above the knee is ok but her right hand is an amputation. C) Your advertisment and the frames you've placed these images in are quite distracting.

#2 A) The ivy coming out of her head. B) While her arm and torso show that she is physically fit, the gnarled fingers take away for the image. C) I prefer her expression in #1 over #2.

Hope this helps and thanks for sharing.

Rick D.

The lipstick is bugging me big time.. it's way distracting... "too pink." Maybe something should have been done add that "sexiness" to her, like letting her hair fall to the front a little... Right now it looks so "Mary Jane / Shirley Temple..." The image isn't really portraying much to me except "she's a very tone female attempting to play model(I've done that lots of times myself [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img])." Maybe it's the attire and the background that don't mix... I don't know...

BUT... She is a very beautiful model... and I like the clarity of the image... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The frames are a bit too bright and distracting. A glamour photo should be about the subject, not the frame. The facial expressions don't seem to quite work for the compositions of either photo. There is all sorts of clutter in the backgrounds of both photos. Before you shoot, examine the background and pick and choose the best spot for your subject. The poses are somewhat awkward in both shots. In the first the lean makes it looks as if she's about the fall out of the frame. The second has her hands looking like she's in pain or something.
Hope this helps.



Cheers,
rfs

Okies I wanna try this critique stuff to.
Now Otto keep in mind, I have only shot a few rolls of film. I have read alot of books so far, I think 27 so far on photography and then other things to do with photography etc. So take this with a grain of salt and here we go.

looking at the picture of her on the couch I like her pose, and her faceal expression, I like her outfit, and I like how clear and sharp she is and the contrast of her skin to the pink clothing. I really like her skin color to.
What I don't like, is the way the background and the couch are also just as bright and almost as in focus as she is. It makes it hard for me to know where to put my eyes and look.
Now I read in a feew books so far, that when making a pic, the photographer has to lead the viewers eyes around the picture. So that the viewers eyes, go right to where the photographer wants them to go. ( to me that means, We make it so someone who looks at the pic, will look at what we want them to, not the other stuff in the pic)

The pic of her standing, I like her pose, it looks defiant.
But to me that pic I don't like alot. Her fingers curled like they are make her fingers look like nubs. Her jeans are nice I love them. But her shirt is rinkled on her side. I read a few places that wrinkles break up the lines or contore of a eperson's body. So we should avoid wrinkles as much as possible.
The stuff hanging on the wall behind her, If you look at it where it is closest to her hair, I can't tell where it stops and her head begins. I think what you need there is called rim lighting or hair lighting? ( I am still behind on all the lighting terms and stuff, forgive me)

Ok Otto now it's your turn. Critique my critique please.

Marty
