Emily, A fun candid photo, indeed captures 'daily life' but I feel it would have been more impressive with better framing. The woodwork at the top of the picture is very distracting, maybe a different viewpoint would have eliminated this and taken advantage of the low light and long shadows. Thank you for sharing.

Hello Wes, I was interested to read your notes on this fairly rare animal however your photography could be improved in several simple ways. 1. When photographing a person or animal it is preferable to lower the camers lens to eye level of your subject, as if to see the world as they would. 2. You appear to have used a shallow depth of field [DOF] making the animals nose more focused than its tail. If your camera allows it use a smaller aperture [higher f stop] to increase DOF. I would have expected to see the whole animal in focus unless you had zoomed right in much closer on the face. 3. When taking these kinds of photos it sometimes pays off to get up close and personal, zoom right in to focus more on the animals expression, don't worry if you cannot see the whole of your subject or its surroundings. Please take a look at my frog photo here to see what I mean These tips are just my opinion but hope they prove useful. [+]

Being an Englishman I knew instantly what this picture was from the thumbnail, and although it has some allure I cannot help but think that anyone who has never seen this type of cooling tower would have no idea. Your composition idea is great, original but because of the tight crop I think your photo landed somewhere between landscape and graphic.[+]

Good action photo Rafael, but I couldn't help think there seems to be too much extra in your photo, also it is overexposed in areas and yet quite dark in others. I have done a workshop to show a different view, with details, please look.

A fantastic view, I'm jealous of your journey. Your photo certainly conveys the scale of the landscape and natural beauty very well. The sun casting shadows and low lying clouds all add to the wonderment. Thanks for sharing your experience. Just one slight niggle is the bright patch of orange in the lower right corner is quite distracting, I've done a workshop to remove it, please comment.

I'm sorry but this is poor. The composition, timing, subject matter and exposure all need more thought. If your flash isn't strong enough to light your whole field of vision the best answer is to choose a scene with no movement so you don't get a blur or deliberately use the movements and long exposure to create something artistic. There is a good range of colour to create interest but even these have mostly been lost with the incorrect exposure. Perhaps you could have done a potrait of one of the potato bakers with the street as a blurred background.[comment] [+]
