Critique This Blog Hop


Today is our second edition of "Critique This". Last time was awesome! There are a few changes this time.

In your post let us know if you consider yourself a beginner, intermediate, or pro photographer. Also be specific about what editing software you used. Have fun!

Beginner-  Does not know or is learning how to shoot in  manual, editing and not yet charging for photo shoots.
Intermediate- New to shooting in manual, editing and just beginning to charge for photo shoots.
Pro            - Confident in shooting manual, understands photography lingo, knowledgeable in editing, and charges for shoots.

Here's the low down on what to critique:

  • Exposure (is the photo too light or too dark)
  • Composition (where are your eyes drawn to, is there negative space)
  • Editing (is the photo over-saturated, is the color off)

A few game rules:

  • Post one photo
  • You can only critique someone else's photo if you are linking up too! 
  • Be considerate of others when giving feedback
  • Link back to Pixel Perfect Blog

  1. Hmmm...I'm having a hard time finding anything with this photo. I think the only thing I would have liked to have seen...would have been a little bit more of her eyes. I can tell she has beautiful brown eyes, but she's squinting a little too much. But then again, when photographing kiddos what can you do? LOL

  2. I could definitely use some kindly worded critiques with my photos -- I'm trying to learn. Great idea!

    I can honestly say there is nothing I don't like about this photo: the sun flare is perfect -- not too much; the color is phenomenal -- soft and delicate and lovely; her eyes are bright, even though they are squinchy, and they really let in to her playful personality; the composition is just a bit off centre, which relaxes the eye and diffuses the tension that might be in a perfectly centered subject.

  3. Overall this image is well done! And I really love the flare. The only thing I might like to see different would maybe be more detail in the flower in her hair. It's kind of blown out by the light above...but certainly a great trade off for that flare.
