Photography Critique for Saikat Debnath

Hi Saikat Debnath,

I would like to thank you for submitting your photographs to be critiqued.  Let’s go ahead and start by looking at your first photograph.

 

curiosity

 

Curiosity

(content) 7/10 – Some unique and interesting things in the photograph.
(composition) 5/10 – If the hand wasn’t in front of the forehead it would be much better.  The way it is currently just distracts the viewer..
(image quality) 7/10 – Image is exposed well and the shadow is interesting..
(TRS Score) 6.3 / 10

Conclusion:   Photograph is interesting and with a few slight modifications it would be improved.  I think a closer shot would bring out more detail and enhance the photograph also

dedication

Dedication

(content) 7/10 – Once again, interesting figures in the photograph.
(composition) 6/10 – I’m not sure if the man’s face or the woman statue is the focus point here  I believe if you zoomed out a few mm’s it may be more pleasing.  I would also like to see what a portrait orientation looks like here.
(image quality) 7/10 – Image quality from what I can see is good.  I would like to see the background of the leaves and blue fabric blurred more though.
(TRS Score) 6.6 / 10

Conclusion:   Blurring background more will put more focus on the two subjects here..

 

uncertainty

 

Uncertainty

(content) 5/10 – Would be more interesting if shot closer.
(composition) 5/10 – The composition would be much better if the objects in the foreground was either not present or were in focus.
(image quality) 5/10 – Exposure is good, but the objects in the foreground blurred takes away from the quality.
(TRS Score) 5 / 10

Conclusion:   Getting a closer shot to show more of the guy and his expression of uncertainty would improve this shot.  Keep his eyes in the ROT and take a few shots with background blurred and a few with a little more detail would be much better.

 

Saikat

I enjoyed the images only wishing the foreground objects were not present or positioned slightly different.  The way they are now takes away from the photograph.  Keeping with the ROT you are able to capture some nice emotions within your subjects.  If you are not doing it presently shoot in RAW mode if possible and take multiple shots with different aperture settings to see which one is captured the best.  Keep up the good work and happy shooting!
