Needs Improvement RedCrown 2010-11-08 5:13

A brave attempt, Ann, but I am afraid it doesn't work. The clearly difficult conditions have forced you to take too many compromises with the image quality. There is a lack of sharpness across the frame (perhaps from camera shake). Moreover, the shadows are very solid indeed. I think you have tried to bring out the face of the man a little in dodging (or it could be the effect of the chalk and charcoal effect) but the result is a little odd.

Sorry to have to be frank, but this one is at odds with the rest of your excellent portfolio.

Dear Ann,

Thank you for taking the criticism so well. The reason some of us lost faith in TE in years past was that it had become a place where 'dark green smilies' were traded between friends daily, regardless of the quality of the images posted, and often without a meaningful critique. Sadly, it's a practice that continues today. That's a shame because there are many here - perhaps not most but many - who want to learn and to improve their photography. I am certainly one of them. And I do not subscribe to the easy life of commenting on good photographs - my promise to myself to comment on all the new uploads - good and indifferent - of my favourite photographers is a discipline for me too!

Best wishes
