thank you for your submission. let’s have a look…

Girls portraiture category

Content
TRS mark : 5 out of 10. Have seen girl portraits before, nothing outstanding other than a nice home photograph. If this is your daughter, you may assign a better mark as you can relate to her.
Compositions
TRS mark – 7 out of 10. The girl is well balanced in the image, the face is not overpowering, eyes follow the rule of thirds and it is an interesting position with the 2 feet next to the head. I believe it is OK
Image quality
TRS 5 out of 10  – in the middle. I see a nice soft natural light, smooth, but the colours are RAW, image is bit dull. I would like to have a stronger colour impact. I suggesting just a bit of vibrance increase
Overall TRS mark is almost 6 – is getting above average towards Ok-ish and even good.

Boy portrait

Content
5 as per above
Composition
TRS mark 4 out of 10. This is a undecided crop…if you want to make a crop, I would suggest a stringer one, just the face for example, no chin, no shadow. Or alternatively you do not crop at all. Yours look unfinished. Also I would either make this a vertical image (portrait format) or move the head in such a way, at least one eye follows the rule of thirds. Your image does not follow any composition and I think this can be even lower than a 4 at this instance, as there is something unbalanced in this image
Image Quality TRS mark 5 out of 10. The image is OK, same comments as above
Overall TRS mark  – rounded to 5.

Pet photography critique

Content 4 out of 10 – nothing special about a dog, might be yours, just a cropped “face” does not really work for a dog ?! Does it?

Composition 3 out 10 – I see not intention here. Again, eother you crop it to make a statement, or you do not crop it at all. This is confusing, is this an accident or an intent.

Image quality 3 out of 10. Other than a sharp image, I see the flash on the camera and I am not very happy with that. No colour impact, a dark background which again looks like an accident and it is not complete.

Overall rating alost 4 out of 10.

Let me know if you believe this is too harsh,, I can sense you like photography and I believe you need to take tit to the next level. Get some better equipment and also learn a bit about post production. I see you can use the natural light properly and you can use that to your advantage

Let me know your thoughts and what equipment do you use

 

thank you
