Dear Sylvie. You captured a quite normal situation in an artistic way :) I hope you don't mind me, but as you are not a beginner you can probably live with it: The big black frame is not enhancing the picture IMHO it distracts from the main object. Otherwise all is good :) Yours, Jan

Hi Prasan, you are clearly living your life with eyes wide open :) I took a peek through your portfolio here and hope there are lots of pictures to come. Composition is very good here, only lack could be the focus. I probably would have put that on the lady as she is main object here. Otherwise thanks for showing and for the motivational note. Yours, Jan

Hi Jarek, a note is always welcome :) I like this rare composition. Well done. You could try to use the flash to get rid of the shadow on her face. Only minus in the picture to me. Congrats. Yours, Jan

Dear Lurdes,

wonderful valentines wish with of course nice framing. But what I like most is their impression. This knowing of being together... Thanks for sharing. Yours, Jan

I wonder how this would look like with a background full of crushed seashells. Like the lower part. The POV and sharpness is excellent. Thanks for sharing such a joyful expression. Yours, Jan

Hello Chuck, story telling picture :) Do you mind sharing some of the postprocessing? Yours, Jan

Clint, my attention is drifting big time to the very light spot on the cheek. In addition I think if you cut off the lower fourth of the photo you have a better composition with more attention on the title of the picture. I don't dare taking pictures of people myself, so just my two cents.... Yours, Jan
EDIT: Just looked at the workshop. It is way better IMHO... :-)

Dear Clint,
this one is great! I love the minimalistic composition and the "tilted" pose adds to the effect :) Big bird is watching you! Thanks for sharing. Sometimes we just click and sometimes we have to work to get a good click. This was definetaly work... Yours, Jan

Hi Clint,
I like photoshopping a lot :) You did a good job selecting only that bird, but it could be done better, without making it look like being cut out with scissors. I have a book at home where it is described, don't remember out of my head now, sorry. Yours, Jan
