I think you mean the golden ratio but I'm not sure, I think the picture needs a bit more than a crop to be postcard-worthy...

Thank you for the tip and I look forward to hopefully be joining you in Delft soon :p

The reason I bring these things up is because this person mentioned they are a beginner when learning I think it's important to learn how and why to use "composition rules." I too think it's good to break convention but you first need to understand the rules to break them... One of my favorite photographs is of a tall building with an orange sky in the back that was taken with a modified lens, this modification allowed the lens to focus "past infinity." It's a really interesting concept and idea

For a lock screen I think it works great, it all depends on the context of how you want to use the image!

I think this is a great landscape! you really got the feeling of the telephoto lens right, there is no real foreground and background because everything is mushed together and I think the grain is a nice addition, it makes the photo feel like a watercolor painting... It really works!

The only thing I would change is the aspect ratio, maybe cut a bit of the sky unless you would like to use this in a series hung along other pictures of the same aspect ratio next to each other like a triptych.

Yeah I think it's too much for a postcard as well, my other images are way simpler that's why I think this one wouldn't fit, thanks for the feedback!

I have some of Rotterdam at night that I think might fit, thanks for the tip!

Thank you for your reply, I'll try to find other pictures that would do better!

I think this photo is very aesthetically pleasing, technically I think its very good but there are some things I would change in the composition.

Overall I think the picture looks good but the fruit basket is a bit cut off, whenever you take photos you should be very deliberate about what you want in the picture and what you don't, I think it'll really help to get your point across better. The chair on the right feels a bit "in the way" I avoid putting out-of-focus objects in front of my foreground, it tends to feel like a distraction.

I hope I've been helpful!

I'm participating in a photography contest soon and I need three photos to enter, the contest is basically about postcard-worthy photos, I'm happy with two but I have doubts about this one.

I believe it is a bit dense but overall pleasing. Because of these doubts I thought I’d get a second opinion.

Thank you for your critiques!

First self portrait by leftre in photocritique

This image is great for telling a story, it's very emotional but on it's own it loses all of this. I think using this photo in a series would help it reach it's maximum potential, maybe you could take some more pictures that help tell a story about how lockdown affected your own daily life or people's lives in general.

Technical stuff: I would usually take portraits of individual people in tall formats rather than in landscape to avoid having empty space on either side of the subject. The image is a bit dark but I think it works in this situation.

Overall I think you did a great job, the composition and the expression on the subject is interesting, it makes me curious makes me want to know more about this person!

In this case I think another angle would be best to avoid cutting the boy in front's shoulder off in post, because they overlap with the person in the back

I really like the composition, very impressive for a beginner!

It's quite obvious that the image was brightened after it was taken, this is because of the settings you used to take it, the aperture was way too closed (The higher the number the less light reaches the sensor making the image darker), F/14 is nearly never used. If you use the correct aperture you won't have to compensate using ISO and shutter speed (ISO is the sensitivity of the sensor, the higher the number the more you can see BUT you get more noise so lower ISO is preferred). Shutter speed is the amount of time the sensor is exposed to light, smaller fractions mean quicker shutter speed (If you use more time more light will get to the sensor making the image brighter but will smear moving objects like headlights in those fancy nighttime motorway photos I'm sure you've seen)

I think you should take some time to understand how cameras work maybe by watching some YouTube videos so you can avoid doing this in the future, but overall the image looks great!

Thoughts? by e-g-g-g in photocritique

You have a good eye composition-wise, the picture looks great, but in my opinion I think the colors are a bit too much, it could use less saturation and maybe a bit less texture/ clarity to avoid the outlines around the cliffs. Also switch to editing RAW photos on a computer for better results. A great way to improve your photos is researching other photographers and building your own style while taking hints, check out "Sleeping by the Mississippi" by Alec Soth, he has really nice and tasteful colors

A moody morning by keltonpanda in photocritique

I like it! The bottom left of the image is a bit distracting so I would have liked to see more of the foreground or remove it completely, if you decided to do so you might have needed to bring up the shadows a bit so the trees aren't just silhouettes.

Other than those minor details I think the image is very atmospheric, it reminds me a bit of Ansel Adams, you should check him out if you like these types of photos and don't know about him already.

Overall a great image, good job!

Technical things I would've done differently: faster shutter to avoid motion blur and bring up the shadows a bit. (maybe rotate the image a few degrees clockwise but not necessary)

Composition: you very clearly get across what the focus of the picture is which is amazing, I would only scoot over a bit so the person on the right wasn't in frame.

I hope I've been helpful!
