    I love the model, the pose and the light....don't like the overly smoothed out skin or the foot that is cropped off.... Also, like the reflections going on in the background.

    Thanks for your comments. Perhaps if there weren't 20 other photographers crowded around her I could have composed the shot with greater flexibility. It was a mob papparazi scene so i was lucky to get anything. I don't think the skin is overly smoothed on the original high rez image but it looks that way when shrunk down to 720 pixels.

    Uninvited critiques are always such fun, aren't they Gregory? =) I don't recall these albums as critique albums as much as they are for sharing.

    Sorry, I just assume that people would like to improve their work by getting constructive comments. If someone critiques my work I either agree with them and try and improve later, or if I disagree I will discuss it. In this case Gregory didn't seem to mind. (So far.) I've never heard of these areas being just for sharing. Do we learn anything from just getting "I like it" or no comments at all?

    Let me critique your comments then. It's not what you say but how you say it. Just like personal relationships, you can say things in a way that doesn't sound so insulting and your comments border insulting to people's work and their ability. Hope that critique helps you! =)

    I'm kind of with Allen, but who am I? I love the angle, the left foreground circular thing happening and the short focus. It would have been great to have gotten rid of the upper right corner somehow where you see beyond the tile. Nice cool tones all work together with the suit color and hair. Chuck

    On Modelmayhem there is a rule that uninvited criticisms are not welcome. I would be happy to be scrutinized IF I had any control over this shoot. I literally was elbowed out by other guys who were blocking my shots. Its a miracle I got anything at all. So there is fairly little to "learn" when its a mob papparazi attack. I think I did ok considering the rough conditions.

    So, does that mean that this group does not want criticisms? Only to show off their work? Or are they looking to improve? I know I'll catch more flack here probably, but I have to say it......I don't post images that I feel are not my best work. If I can't fix the problem with the image....I don't post it. So if you are crowed out in a shooting situation and can't get the shot you wish you could....don't post that shot. Again....this is only my opinion and open for discussion. (Hopefully constructive C and C. ) Any thoughts?

    You go! Allen! I agree again. There is no separate critique forum here, and Positive comments might also be a form of critique? Chuck

    Positive comments are helpful to everyone that reads them. What is right about an image is just as important as to what could be improved, etc....I feel that figuring out what is a good photo, is something that can always be explored. I think in the rush for everyone to go digital, and buy a camera, and rush to post images....what makes up a good or bad photo....has gotten lost in the shuffle.
