Well if you want a critique, many of us can provide it. But if you want us to go easy on you, then that may mean you won't get the best critique. If I were to critically critique the photo I would say that attention to details was lacking. For example, the green tree on the left is just a distracting element that adds nothing to the scene. It should be cropped out. The green element in the upper right corner is also distracting and even more so since it is blurred. There is also some sort of a black line coming down from her back to the bed which is distracting. Cropping off the bottom half of the leg is also inappropriate in this case. The rule is generally to crop above the joint unless you really has some compelling reason not to. There are some other problems, but since you wanted us to go easy on you, I'll forego any further mention of little details. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Hope all this helps.



Cheers,

I think you will usually find the tone of criticism here pretty constructive. A couple ideas for you. Limbs pointed toward the camera look foreshortened. It is always best to extend them to the side unless you want to purposefully break a rule. Her legs would look much longer and more feminine extended to camera left.

Old timers like me consider this a bastard view of the face. It is not a true profile or a 2/3 view. A good rule is don't let the nose intersect the line of the cheek. That line is beautiful and should not be broken.

One more. Consider moving your main to the left rear corner and having it come across her face and body. Put it 45 degress from her nose. This is classic short lighting. It is flattering to most people.

Best regards.

I dont like the way her legs are cut off from the shot, and it almost looks like she's chewing on something or working her jaw in some odd way.
