Critique by AliciaMarieCreations Jan 2, 2011, 9:10:51 AM
I love how the picture is so dark and she fades into it, and then there is the top of her face and the top of the water where she has air. It really does show hope and this photo maybe simple but the meaning is deep. Nice composition as well, underneath the water is my favorite part where her hair fades away and everything is out of focus. I do think her eye is too dark for the photo, but I like the expression you chose for her face a lot. She has hope, but it makes you wonder how much. Nice job with this photo!
What do you think?

This is fantastic. I love how her body below the water is blurred out and her face above the water is in focus. I also love the dark eye makeup. Wonderful. :+fav:
