The accusation and anger in the eyes of the child is well caught and conveys well the plight of day to day living in their world.

Its another terrific shot Tracey. You need though to include your shot settings with a Critique, as it really limits us with what we can comment on, and/or be helpful. Your exif data is empty, - so you may be assuming its loaded, but its empty. version of Photoshop prior to CS4 do strip the exif data, so if thats your situation, then just add the details in the description.


Back to the shot, - excellent capture of the essence of the child, - this is one of those pictures thats worth a thousand words.

I like the toning, however, - and just a suggestion, especially if you are toning a b&w, that you tone the eyes at a lower opacity, especially the catch lights, - they may become dull with toning.


The only significant change I made in the mod is to show the eyes a little brighter, as if they were toned less. The crop is simply to make the image printable in an 8 X 10 format, with less height and more width on the left.


regards


Willie

Hi Willie

Thank you again for your comments and modification. Yes, you're right about the eyes, that is something I will look out for in the future. Regarding the exif data, I am using CS5. When I'm uploading an image I put in the make, model and lense I have used, I haven't noticed where you would put other information like f/ or shutter speed etc. How can I get it to load this information automatically or is this a manual thing - sorry to sound a bit thick...!!!!

Hi Tracey,

By entering the make and lens etc. you're placing that information on the decsription page. The EXIF is stored as part of the image's data and is drawn out during the upload.
If it's not arriving, then it's being removed somewhere during the process.
Now, I see you're using CS5.
If you're using the "save for web" method, as I suspect, then that will remove the EXIF unless you tell lit not to.
Amongst all of the options down the right hand side of the "save for web" page, there's one, about half way down, marked "metadata". Next to it there's an arrow with a drop-down menu. One of the choices on it is "all."
I'm pretty sure that if you select "all", your EXIF will be saved along with your image.

I've got to try it and see now but I'm pretty sure that I'm right!

Bren.

Right Bren, - you need to tell CS5 to include exif.

Thanks Willie.

I thought as much but I had to go and look.
Funnily enough, this is the second time today that I've had to explain that.

Thanks Willie and Bren. I'm just about to upload another image, this time of a yellow weaver bird, I think I've done it right ie: saved it for web but to include the metadata, can one of you just have a quick look to see if it's come across ok.
Best Wishes
Tracey

Another excellent shot, the picture is the child’s eyes. You have caught a catch light however I might be tempted to just whiteten the white's to make the eyes stand out more for maximum impact
