Great overall portrait catching the viewer's attention through an excellent facial rendering, but I am a bit puzzled by the strangeness of the subject's right hand. I can see she is holding something (?), but the thumb and half-index seem to interfere with what I consider to be a first-class portrait. Regards, Paul
I really like the pose, the legs of your subjects do indeed become the central focus. The staircase with its various lines does add a great deal to this view. I was going to add why not lessen the focus on the background, but really having included strong tree lines seems to work in your favour. Regards, Paul
I can see why most viewers would hesitate between one and the other version, both are rather interesting. I would go for the colour version because the yellow of the owl's eyes favours a dramatic, piercing look. Now for version 2, it seems to me the eyes are a little more inset as the eye-line does not seem to concentrate as much energy. Regards, Paul
Nicely done! quite successful composition on the red riding hood theme. The seriousness, the red hood capping your subject's blond hair and, of course, the bad (poor) wolf, the trunk backdrop combine to re-create the fairy-tale and elicit a smile. Loved it! Regards, Paul
I just love the intensity of this portrait! You seem to have taken the right decisions on this shoot, hence only one side of your subject's face is highlighted, reinforcing in this manner the strength of your subject's gaze while creating a story related to her personal traits. Powerful! Regards, Paul
Nicely done! Your image tells the story as tension is created between the child and the ball. Furthermore, blurring is essential in creating movement. The child's eye contact is key here in that it is very expressive of your title. A question remains regarding the background. Should it be cropped? Probably not because of the over bright area, but really I think depth is necessary to focus on the subject and to lend some domestic drama to the scene. Lovely shot. Regards, Paul
Rather interesting shot because it plays on the usual notion of vertiginous. At first sight the window cleaners are barely visible as against this "vertiginous" shot from the base. So, one gets dizzy just looking up and catching the sight of these workman. You did well to complete the horizontal base with a strong vertical line. This is really what gives the shot its interest, if not the building's symmetry. Regards, Paul
Cannot say I know a lot about vertorama, which, if I understand correctly, concerns vertical panoramas. Had a look at a few examples, particularly at http://shutterexperiments.com/2011/09/01/vertorama-vertical-panorama/
