The picture Critique is closed for now, but will open up again, probably next year. It will be announce on my blog.
My picture critique page is open for submissions again. Do you have a picture you would like some feedback on from a professional photographer? Please take this opportunity to post one on this page. It can be any kind of photograph – as long as it’s been taken by you. As soon as possible I will then give my thoughts and opinion about the picture. My intension is to be somewhat critical but not discouraging. I believe in positive feedback – as long as it’s a valid reaction. I will give my honest view and perception of your picture in what I attempt to be constructive and meaningful critique. My hope is that the feedback will be helpful for you to develop your skills as a photographer – whether you are a family shooter or a professional photographer. We all need that feedback to get an idea of how others perceive our work. And that feedback might bring about new ideas and make us see our work in a different light. And help us develop into better photographers. In many ways this is a small taste of how my regular workshops work – whether a workshop taking place somewhere in the world, like the ones I am teaching in Cuba or Spain this autumn – or one of my online workshops (for more on these, look up Blue Hour Photo Workshops). The difference is of course that my regular workshops are much more in-depth and personal, as well as I teach various photographic subjects in addition to the picture critique. Whether or not you want to sign up for any of my regular workshops or not, give it a try here. No obligation what so ever. How do you submit pictures? Just put a link in a comment beneath to one of your pictures already out on your blog, your website or somewhere else on the web. I will then pick it up and post it here for everyone to see the picture. But please, I would be very happy if you don’t link to a high resolution picture. I don’t know how many pictures will be put on here, but with large pictures it can easily make the site hard and slow to download. And maybe I may also ask you to post about the picture critique on your own blog when you submit a picture (or have received the picture critique)—as a thank you to me? This way more people will get to know about the possibility. Remember this is not a competition. Submit a picture you need feedback on, a picture you are unsure about, a picture that is different from your usual style or just a picture that you want to know how to do better. One request, though: May I ask each one of you who want feedback to limit yourself to one picture? I look forward to seeing your picture.
