Not sure about the second one. You've labelled it 'Connor and his dad' but all I can see is some bloke's fat ar5e.

See your point given the info, but he was asked to judge the photo.

It's a big human story but pictorially, take 5 swift steps to the right and zoom in to show the boy's face.

I don't see why. OP has posted 3 images in a thread titled 'My Photography', and I can't see any merit in the second image that doesn't show us the expressions or emotions of either Connor or his dad, but just appears to be a snap of dad's posterior.

Whilst it may have some meaning to the OP who possibly knows the individuals personally or knows the story behind the image, from a photographic viewpoint it's a bit of a dud.

Agreed the second photograph isn't the best in composition terms but there were photographers everywhere so getting a shot at all was a challenge! the meaning behind the photo for me is enough as the story is truly heartbreaking.

If DIW35 hasn't read there is a link to the rest of my stuff in the original post... But thanks for the feedback smile

Thanks 5Hero I will be the first to admit the second isn't how I wanted but like I said the shot was hard to get and I'd rather have got a shot like that then not one at all, as for me it was taking pictures to remember the day by smile

It can be quite difficult to decide what, if anything, to post on a public forum.

In a thread related to Connor and his family that record shot would more than likely have some relevance.

Nice car, the colouring of the grass you can see through the glass, is that intentional? Maybe scrub that out, so it's uniformed with the rest of the grass?, just a thought.

...or just forget the selective colouring. The best decision you'll make today wink

If you look at the large one on Flickr it is actually black and white but because of the glass reflection it does look slightly more coloured then the rest of the grass smile I don't see why there is so much dislike for the selective colouring haha!

Don't take it personally, it's just one of those things that was big about a decade ago, and we all got sick of it. HDR came next and we all now (well most of us) diss that too. Tilt shift is just about done. Etc.

True but I suppose most things have already been done so i'm just exploring what is most effective smile No offence taken it is just hard to decide which effect if any to use, I personally hate HDR photos if they are overdone! Could anybody suggest what may have worked better? like I said I'm looking for feedback to see what the majority finds good as well as my self biggrin

Photos are what they are.

Sometimes a "special effect" might add to them for all, significant parts or a very few of the audience.

Sometimes not. Anything that has been through a period of "fashion" is susceptible to negative responses.

Most photographers (pro or hobbyist) seem to work in a specific genre most of the time. Generalisation is rare and that is probably good, on balance.

You have to know your audience and play to it. If you find and exhibit something with universal appeal - you have a winner that may be a money spinner.
