    If you note the histogram above will see that you clearly that you have understood the assignment and have done quite well in terms of the tonal range of the image. So job well done, I can tell that you are learning and getting quite a bit from the lessons. 馃榾

    But I want you to get beyond that for a moment. Aesthetically speaking people generally prefer to be able to see people’s faces and eyes in their photographs. In this case you can see the side of your subject’s face and that’s ok, it’s just not as revealing as if you could see the child’s face.

    In face while we are on the subject, people’s faces are one of the main things to photograph. Portraits of people are an artform unto themselves. Take a look at all the great portraits and you will see eyes and faces.

    I think you get my point. Also note that being creative and choosing interesting compositions is not a bad idea it’s just that when you stray too far from good ideas that things don’t work. It’s a good idea to include people and their faces in your photos!

    All that said I’m glad you’ve understood the assignment.

    What do you think?

    hi there,

    thanks for the critique!
    I totally agree with you on what you had pointed out! I have talked to a friend of mine who is a Photographer and he pointed it out as well. I got alot of Photos from that day.
    here is another one where he doesn’t exactly look into the camera but it’s more frontal! 馃槈

    Thanks again for the Critique and have a wonderful Day! 馃檪

    This one is much better, it’s just missing the eyes. 馃槈 I like that you are progressing and taking it all in.

    Way to go!
