I'd give that a 5 or 6. the tree through the head is somewhat distracting and it seems slightly OOF to me ( could be my eyes though) I also find it lacks pop the colours seem a little flat. With that said if you PP'd it in LR and punched up the colours it'd be an easy 8



first attempt at PP using the Silver Efex Pro 2 plugin in lightroom

Maybe its just me, but the left side of the head seems very soft. The lighting draws my eye to the chin more than anything. Also, the expression seems off, not a bad pic but I would have waited for a different emotion. Seems very blank to me. 5/10

5/10 Has potential the crop is too tight for me. There seems to be a beautiful backdrop. Would like to see more of it. Without it, it lacks context.

Shot with kit lens 18-55.

7/10 solid composition and nice use of dof. I wish the light was more on the face as opposed to the chest some fill flash on the hair would have done wonders.

mine is a bit of a double same photo 2 edits



b&w with silver efex pro plugin



color version using lightroom soft focus plugins and sliders for adjustment

5/10. I'll be brutally honest and say that it's just not a flattering image. Clean the baby up, get more overhead on the baby(up looking down, not down looking up), and ditch the soft focus filters and I think you'll have a winning shot.

This is from a shoot I did a while back.

Breaking the rules a bit here but I'll do it anyways lol.

I'd go 8/10 on that one Josh. Nice tonal range I like it my but eye gets drawn to the dead space on the right could do with a slightly tighter crop. BTW I always try and take your CC with good humor and know it's not a personal attack on my photography or me. Sometimes it's hard to accept others not liking or being harsh about my photos but that's part of being a photog I suppose.

anyways here's another shot from the same set. I tried a bit of a different perspective still down at his level but he was looking at flower that is off camera so it's not as head on as my previous post. I realize he's got a bit of a snotty nose but just the way he was so interested i wanted to capture it so I did and I bathed him afterwards. You'll know when you have kids that trying to wipe a snotty nose is a nightmare at this age far easier to do the full bath routine

anyways enough blathering on to my shot

7/10, itīs too tight IMO, needs more room in the direction where he is looking.
Reading your previous comment makes me think itīs more preference thing though.

Iīll keep up the theme.
I really love my x100, it just has that magic feel, even without PP.

I love the x100 and x100s I am planning on investing in an x20 soon.

This picture is so funny to me.

Do you manually focus? Or autofocus? I find this photo to be rather soft; it looks as if the focus is on his shirt collar perhaps. Aim for the eye, I think it'll look more crisp. I wouldn't have shot it as tight either, but it's not bad in terms of framing if that's what you were going for. 7/10.


Old photo from last summer. Shot when I just got my 7D. Pardon the watermark.
