HI,
thank for your latest submission to the UWP contest smile
You've requested a critique of your photo. How it works :
I will structure my critique into a few chapters and will list some suggested solutions to problem zones
( if there are any ). My critique will be like 2-3 posts in total, please wait with any answers untill
you see the note "photo critic completed" - thanks smile
As we photo critics do this job as volunteers, a "thank you" is always appreciated
( no "thanks" = no more critiques ).
Photo critiques here at UWP are meant to give a helping hand with
an analytic review & to suggest solutions.
The objective is to see you here as winner one day smile
And here we go ( critique/review starts with the next post

Photo Critique
Hi Marco,
First impression : Nice subject very close. Technical ( score from 1-6, best is 6 )
Exposure : 4, Colours: 3, Sharpness: 4, DOF ( depth of field ) : 4, Contrast : 4
Suggestions :
The colours and the sharpness are good.A shame it's not from the front but still it works. A good thing you can see the eye. The only real critique I have for you is the composition. I think a portrait view would have worked better. There is not enough space at the bottom. It's good there is more space on the right compared to the left side. You can see a direction. I know how it is, you have to be fast and the subject is not a model that will turn in whatever direction you want it. All in all a great photo and I wish you luck with future shots.

Happy bubbles, Dray
