Tomas Vaicikauskas Tired Pumpkin

 

Content: TRS mark 5/10

The main subject is obviously the masked subject, however the background is very busy and competes for attention. This is a casual shot.

Composition: TRS mark 5/10

Compositionally, this image needs improvement since there is too much going on.

Image quality: TRS mark 6/10

Image is sharp but you may have used a lower f/stop setting to have your subject stand out by blurring the background further. Watch your blown out highlights too.

Final TRS mark: 5+ out of 10

 

 

Tomas Vaicikauskas SPIRIT BAR

 

Image Title                       : SPIRIT BAR

Content: TRS mark 3/10

Someone dancing it seems, but this image is chaotic.

Composition: TRS mark 4/10

This is a snap shot. Try not to crop people at their joints as they look awkward. Simplicity is key to better composition.

Image quality: TRS mark 3/10

The image is awash with a purple colour cast and lacks quality. Shooting in such low light is very challenging. Better lenses (fast lenses) may be of great help.

Final TRS mark:  3+ out of 10

Content: TRS mark 6/10

This is the best of the three. A head and shoulders of a female model. You captured an expression here.

Composition: TRS mark 6/10

There is room for improvement here. Perhaps you could have had your model slightly towards one side and omitted her knee from view. Otherwise this is a good shot.

Image quality: TRS mark 7/10

Exposure is well controlled. I like the blurred background as you have the model stand out. Well done.

Final TRS mark:  6+ out of 10

 

Tomas, please take these comments merely as a means for progression. Do not be disheartened but keep shooting. Please feel free to comment.
