The first thing I like about this image - it is eyecatching. I browsed through the critiqueable category and this image really jumped into my eye.
I love the strong color contrast. Blue and yellow are great colors to work with when you want attention on your image. The whole cold atmosphere is underlines by the model, which appears very cool too, because of her skin and hair color. The make up is okay - I wished the colors would be a bit more blended, but this is a matter of personal taste.
The bokeh effect is superb and brings a dreamy feeling into the image.
The only thing which could have been improved is the composing. The model is in the center of the image, which makes it very static and a bit boring. A more 1/3 - 2/3 composing would be better.
This piece really catched my eye, during browsing through the critiquable gallery.
Especially the composing is captivating. The fact, that she did set the girl a bit out of the center brings so much tension into the image, because of the golden ratio. The square format is also chosen very well, because it shows a good contrast between the calm format and the tension of the composing.
Also the fact that the background looks symetric appeals to the composing.
The colors underline the title very well. The diversity of green, brown, yellow and red colors is just amazing.
wow this is really an epic sky. I adore this type of images. They always grab my attention immediatly.
The colors are very strong. Love the contrast between the fresh green grass and the blue sky. The cloudscape is just amazing. But I wished the little lensflare would be erased. It acts like a disturbing point. You always have to look to the point although it isnt part of the composing.
And well the composing could be a bit improved in several points. First the sky-land ratio. It is almost 1:1. This appears really boring a ratio of 1:2 is much bette and brings a lot of tension into the image. If you would have set the sun a bit more out of the center of the composing would be more tension in the image too. And last but not least the horizon is incline...from upper left to lower right has a negative attitude. Either a straight horizon or from lower left to upper right - for a more positive feeling.
I adore this image. The model looks awesome and her gaze which stares out of the image is just amazing. But this image is so captivating because of the great black and white. The gradiation is just perfect and the grain of the image works so great with the whole image. Also well done lighting - very soft but not too soft so that there are just some light shadows which form the face. The portrait format is very well choosen too, because the dynamic brings lot of tension into the image. One of the best portraits I ve seen in the last weeks.
