Critiques [Translate]

A cute moment you captured here, Andrea, with an interesting color treatment. I like it, in spite of some shortcomings:
- unfortunately, the black kitty is not in focus, but I know how difficult it is to get these cuties sitting before your lens without moving ;o);
- as a whole, the kitties are less sharp than the surroundings;
- I think your composition still is a little too centered (I would have preferred more space to the left or, other possibility, a more centered compo within a square format).
Just my personal view, of course. Feel free to (dis)agree ;o).
TFS (thanks for sharing), welcome to TrekLens & kind regards,

Hi Andrea!

Welcome to TrekLens, I like this debut photo.

A cute subject choice - the light was obviously very low, and the camera used a slow shutter speed as a result, which means there is motion blur on one of the cats (the black one.)

Your camera does have manual settings for shutter, aperture, and ISO, so if you increased the ISO (say, 400) and sped up the shutter (say, 1/100) you would have achieved a better shot.

Keep shooting and keep sharing, and do look at other people's photos (and critique them, even just to give an opinion) because you will learn a lot from it!
