message this message is important Dear Bill,

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 wink


And here we go ( critique/review starts with the next post ) !

First impression
Nice Idea, but deficits in settings and composition


Technical ( score from 1-6, best is 6 )
Exposure : 2, Colours: 3, Sparpness: 3, DOF ( depht of field ) : 3, Contrast : 2


Suggestions :
If you take the shot with this composition, use faster shutter speed (the burned out sun looks not good) and more strobe power on the anemone (gives light, colours and contrast).


Composition :
The subject is centered. To much space on left and right side.


Suggestions :
Better to you use a vertical frame size (2x3 or 3x4). Look for another shooting angle. Don’t cut the anemone and bring just a small part of the burned out light (sun) on the top of the frame.

message  Subject :
Nice to see the habitat of this nemo’s.

Suggestions :
I have to write again, use more strobe power to see the nice colours of the anemone and the nemo’s.

Epilogue :
The idea of this photo is good. But has potential to make it more interesting for the viewer. Looking forward to see your next submit here at UWP.


All the best,

Roland
