message Dear
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 until 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 ) !

First impression:
My first impression is that the surroundings in this image look like the diver is diving between two snow covered Mountains! Interesting!!!!

Technical ( score from 1-6, best is 6 )
Exposure : 3, Colours: N/A, Sparpness: 3, DOF ( depht of field ) : 4, Contrast : 3

Suggestions :As always I'm a fan and preach wide angle! I like the angle of the image. I think the exposure could be better adding a bit artificial light would also help. Some of this can be fixed in post edit with a photo program.I would like to see the color image, it might look better in color.

Composition:I like the composition and the shadow under the diver is very cool. As mentioned the setting is very cool.Good DOF but could also be a bit sharper!


Suggestions :I suggest playing with the image in a photo program and next time adding more light will help.
