I love the feeling and story this image conveys. The play on the animal from the water reflection above is very good, and I love how the background is exposed well to show detail, but convey the unknown! Brilliant!

I really enjoyed this image! Lighting is superb! this is a fine example of the theme, and the only thing I could say would be to move the pipe so it didn't intersect with the candles. Regardless of that, it's a very good image.

Technique: 29 Impact: 30 Composition: 21
I love how the light skims across the rider and the horse. These beautiful rippling muscles show the strength of the horse and the connection with the rider. It could score higher if there was a bit more detail in the shadows to the right of the image, but I enjoyed this one very much!!

Technique: 27 Impact: 23 Composition: 28
I am glad you mentioned this was a gun in the title, because I did not get that clearly from viewing the image. A better angle could have improved the story telling, as this is an interesting combination of elements. The lighting is also very good!

Fantastic expression and styling! The lighting flatters her very well. The lens distortion makes her hands appear larger than her face, but other than that, an excellent and fun low key portrait!

This is exceptional! So I have a great fondness for Dia De Los Muertos subject matter, but besides that, you have done a great job with lighting and composition. The styling is great, and I love that you can see the detail of her open eyes! Brilliant! If you are a novice just getting started, you will no doubt create more great works!

Backlit Bride - Dan Smith

Technique: 28 Impact: 27 Composition: 31
I love this image. Your use of lighting really highlights the subject's features. I do not get your title though. It doesn't translate as Bride to me. perhaps if there is veil or something to indicate that, it would be more clear.

Well done! Bird is sharp, and composition is excellent. That one reed that is lighter than the others (below the bird) is a bit distracting, and would be stronger if it was removed.

I love so many things about this image! The soft morning light, especially. The composition and straight horizon are well done. The brown stripe in the middle of the green belt area makes me wonder if the reflection is real, so maybe edit that out so it looks more uniform at the water's edge.
