The portrait in itself is not bad selahattin, the pov, the crop are excellent but the technical aspect in this portrait lacks a certain element, and I think that the noise that permeates and the blur that surrounds the subject takes away from the actual quality of this portrait.

Hey Andrija!
I certainly like the washed out colours in this shot, but I think that this photo is negligent of the other subject, although perhaps you had wanted to focus only on the boy, you should have either focused solely your zoom on him or you should have not cropped out the other boy entirely.

Good luck!

An amazing capture, the dunes here look surrealistic and almost unreal. They are so smooth, so textured, and have this very fine earthtone colour.

I think the only thing that I'd recommend changing or remembering for next time is the include a higher resolution of this photo. Otherwise the crop in itself is pretty good.

A bit noisy around the rocks, i like the way the rocks, the ground and the sign itself seem to melt into the surroundings. Perhaps the only thing I could recommend changing would be the border, I feel like it takes away from the shot by distracting the viewer with a contrasting colour or hue.

A beautiful vibrant sense of colour, even the shadow on the right side that might usually ruin a photo of this sort helps the vibrancy of colours. Great macro, great vibrant colours! Keep it up

Certainly a good facial portrait with an interesting source of light that casts a rather cool looking shadow, as well as just overall good vibrant colours.

She's got really big eyes doesnt she...or perhaps its just the effect we get from the lighting shadow and her own facial pose.

You've certainly captured this sculpture well, while perhaps the border in itself is unnecessary, I think the photograph for itself has a good mix of very well used cropping and positioning. Due to the fact that the sculpture is in the 1/2 of the portrait opening up her arms to the sky, seems to signify to me some sort of hoping for something heavenly and wonderful!

Hey Jean, I love the whole post-processing that you've done to create this sky. It's brilliant, and although while the photograph itself may seem simple, the sky and the overall mundane colours that fill this hill, help to create an image, an image of Canadian countryside, with weeds poking through, tall grass with the mix of short grass at the next door neighbours with the far off field in the distance.

The sky certainly made me want to check this photo out!

Whether you throw it away, you will suffer heartbreak and hardships no matter what. That is perhaps the testament of our souls, our need to be comforted, our need to demonstrate emotions.

The blue background here is vibrant, ensuring focus on the hand and the ring itself, the textures of the background are wonderful and I love the different shapes and curves that the cloth becomes. As for the hand itself and the ring, the open hand certainly helps to bring out a sense of unease, a sense of helplessness, the ring itself not only is vibrant in colour, is the focal point of this shot and is wonderfully placed up on the hand.

As for the rest of the shot, the shadows certainly play a role in the mood setting, the darkness that surrounds you, the long shadows that the hand itself creates, just seem to me, like a sense of the awaiting death that reaches us at the end of our life, the way it surrounds you, makes me feel like its unpredictable and could happen at any moment possible.
