I joined this site 2 days ago, to get more CC on my photos, i have posted two photos in my gallery and have received a comment from another member saying that my shot is out of focus and he cannot see one bit of the photo as being in focus. This photo is currently on another site but has received no comments about it being out of focus, in fact just the opposite?..... please could a couple more people take a look and leave their comments as if it is out of focus to others aswell, then i will remove it...

many thanks,

Thanks for looking... i note the member that left the comment has many years experience, i will leave it on and take on board his comments and your explanation. This is the main reason i joined, to get proper CC and not just a 'nice shot' comment. Grin

Hi Mandy,

I can fully recommend the Critique Gallery if you want to learn from mistakes and receive advice to help you get things right. Please don't be offended when people say that there is a problem with an image, we are all different and what one person likes another will hate and so on. There is so much to learn in digital photography and my suggestion is to take it one step at a time and really get to grips with the advice your given.

Remember to put as much detail in the description as you can including the settings of the camera such as shutter speed, aperture, ISO and focal length. Also put what you were taking why you were taking it and what you expected to get, they all help us help you.

I hope to see some of your work in the Critique Gallery and good luck with your photography.
