What a hoot! Lol These things happen, what do they call it Murphy’s Law or something like that. Can’t help but wonder does that exiting leg belong to inattentive mom? ( rhetorical ) well, wishing positive wishes your way and good luck with the outcome!
The baby’s shadowy face could be brightened, there’s way too much roaming space around the baby you almost lose what the subject is. If this were a action scene from a directed foreign movie this would be apt but since it’s common still shot of a babies drawn attention cropping is essential. After lightening the photo zoom in and crop whether you…[Read more]
Your sunset/sunrise is a plus, your composition according to framework is ok, but I feel let down by the subject matter. It’s a plain old pier? Where is the element of surprise. I would’ve wanted to see a picknic there or some forest animals taking in the glorious view. Another words the viewer doesn’t see something of curious interest. Unless you…[Read more]
I’m thinking one of two things..you purposely underexposed the photo to give the stone an old ancient look. The distortion was a bit overdrawn much the same way color can appear to bleed if over excessed. Here over distortion is detected in a glance and can be corrected by taking three experimental shots of the same building. Each shot increasing…[Read more]
As Architect Designer I am well aware of your being drawn to point perspective. It is a wonderful way to see the world in super 3-D. Many Marvel comic books show extreme and distorted angles as you speak of and there is a right and wrong for shooting a desireable perspective shot and its all in your choice of angle. The shot you present here is…[Read more]
The lighting along with careful simultaneous control of the contrast can be raised, I used to see a lot of muddy low contrast pictures that need the light boost. If you have a soft glow feature it adds to raising the light but at the same time removes the harsh look since I believe you mentioned your liking the way the ice fell on his/her nose and…[Read more]
You may discover a surprise if you square the photo starting from left side. Crop a bit off. Then crop the right side to conform to a square. Your photo may have better impact and appeal. We are accustomed to rectangular shots since cameras are built to produce them but often times we overlook the simple square. Many a prize has been won over a…[Read more]
Tree branches at top are a bit busy, the bike is almost out of the scene..yes I see you put it on the golden section but here’s a tip to resolve both. Divide the base of your photo into three units and count four units along lengthwise. At the four mark cut away your picture. This will remove the busy branches and raise the bike center stage. Let…[Read more]
A natural tip I would recommend as I do to those I photograph is to use your eyes ( you have beautiful eyes don’t hide them) use your eyes to smile. It is the eyes the viewer sees in portrait shots. Be natural as you are when sitting or it comes across artificial. I recommend finding photos of popular actresses who have done portrait sittings…[Read more]

I caught Light Stalking from an advertisement on flipbook and right away checked it out, so here I am and I like it so far. I made mention of your group to my photographer Facebook friends and welcomed them aboard explaining the rules using only constructive critique. Hope to see some of them here. I’m not a paid for photographer but am good for…[Read more]
The cropping aspect is a bit elongated would crop a bit a left, agree with Caime would’ve liked to see more hair up top to make the picture more complete and balanced. All rest aside you have a warm smile.
1000 apologies I’m new to the group and was unaware of the picture click. Observing the photo once again the right side could be cropped or too, thinking it would look better to square the frame around her face. This would seem to grab viewers attention.
Too much unwanted space at left crop roughly a third off. The light value could be increased to make the birds white feathers pop and perhaps increase the saturation a bit to bring out the blue backing, careful not to over saturate. Good luck
