Hello, :wave: I'm here to write a critique for :iconfeedbackfrenzy: contest!

I love the colours captured in this image. They are full of life and blended well together. The simple background emphasizes well the main subject.
You used well the rule of thirds, your subject it's not too central and also the image does not feel empty. The lines created by the flower (I'm sorry, don't know the word used for that part of the flower) make an interesting visual effect by leading the viewer's eyes. By placing the flower on one of the edges of the composition you isolated well the main subject.
Usually this viewpoint is used in most flower photos; you could try a different approach by rotating the picture, and having the flower in the top right corner. Also, I think you cropped a bit too much, I wanted to see also the tips of other lines. Likewise, with a different point of view, maybe you could create a deeper depth for the photo. Layers would give more consistency.

This was my opinion as an amateur photographer, please don't feel offended. Keep up the good work!
Happy Holidays! :santa:

This is a critique for the :iconfeedbackfrenzy:#FeedbackFrenzy competition


This picture is actually fairly interesting. Not something I was expecting from a picture of a flower. The colours on here are quite vibrant which really do a lot for this photo. The background is simple and yet it's really effective. Having those two colours adds a sense of depth to the picture. The background isn't too overpowering while also enhancing the look of the flower. That particular shade of blue goes quite well with the yellow and pink. But what really brings it all together is the white. It brings a bit of variety to the background but doesn't take away all of the attention from the flower and being white it goes with anything and can sometimes makes colours work together when normally they wouldn't. The choice of placement for this picture was also quite a good choice. It gives the eye space to look while also giving a main focus point. The blurring of the ends of the tendrils also helps to keep the main focus on the yellow part of the flower

Overall good job. I don't know how much theory you've done on photography, but I found this tutorial on composition to be quite an interesting read, I suggest you read it too. It could give you something to think about in the future: [link]

Hope this critique helped :)

Hi there, I'm writing this critique as part of the #FeedbackFrenzy contest.
I love this piece. I have really no idea what it actually is (I guess some kind of flower) but that is not important. The colours are excuisite, the bold pinkish red and yellow contrasting with the blue background makes me think of an organism on an alien planet.
I'm not much of a photographer myself so I won't be able to give any hints there, but I admit I wish you had not cropped the top right at the knob of that stalk, just a liiittle bit more. I would have this on my wall any day! Great, and bold job.
