Rules to Post Images on Photo Critic...

Every image should have a suitable title...

 

With each image, you should provide the following info.

  • Camera & Lens (i.e. Nikon D80, 18-105mm lens)
  • Program Used (i.e. Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, Manual, Program AE, Automatic etc.)
  • ISO (i.e. ISO 100)
  • Shutter Speed (i.e. 1/200th/sec)
  • Aperture (i.e. f/5.6)
  • Meter Mode (i.e. matrix, evaluative, partial, spot, centre weighted etc)
  • Flash used? (i.e. external speedlight, on-camera flash, multi-speedlights)
  • Treatment / Post editing (i.e. converted the image to mono in Photoshop, and sharpened the image)
  • (If you don't know how to get the settings... In Windows, Right Click on the File and go to Properties, Advanced... to view the settings)

 

  • If necessary supply additional information for example how you took the image (with a tripod, lying on the ground, shooting from the top to prevent clutter in the shot, I ran 250 meters after the man and asked him to take his portrait...). Also don't hesitate to say why you feel it is a good shot and where you think you could have improved on the shot)

 

  • You may only post 2 (Two) images per week. (Mondays to Sundays). Apart from being a platform where myself and other members can evaluate your images, it should also be a showcase of only your best work. For this reason, every member may only post 2 images per week. It is also impossible for us to review hundreds of photos at a time. Please note that if you send in more than 2 photos, we will summarily delete the weaker ones, without commenting on any.

 

  • Send us only your best images. Your albums / photos should serve as a mini portfolio of your best shots. For this reason we will disapprove weaker images that we feel will not do you, or the site any justice. Then also, don't hesitate to personally delete some of your older weaker shots as you upload new and greater work. In this way, you would learn to judge your own work, which is a much needed trait of all photographers.

 

  • In terms of comments and rating of photos; we are all striving to take better photos. For this reason, expect the comments to be straightforward and direct. However, the critiques will be constructive enough to help you with your photo taking; i.e. "shadow cast bothers me", "composition could be better by framing the subject to the right and cropping some of the clutter away on the left", "time of day", "lighting is flat", "too many hotspots" etc....
