“The only way you'll find out if you 'have it in you' is to get to work and see if you do.” —Cheryl Strayed

Critic's Corner

Constructive critiques through objective observation can greatly help you advance as a photographer. This is not for the faint of heart. If you do not want honest criticism, then post your images in the Member's Gallery.
Forum rules
Post images in this forum to receive critical analysis.
When posting, include a question to something you want answered so people know where to focus on. Just posting an image will get you too broad a critique to be effective.
When giving critiques avoid 'attaboys' and negative, derogatory or inflammatory comments. Critiquing is for educational purposes only.
Please read How to critique photos in the tutorial section.
