    I have no taste in photography(or art for that matter) but I still voted 10... because you're my best GL referral.

    Hope you win!

    Very nice capture..A lighting effect in Photoshop would really enhance this, or maybe black and white.

    The picture is a bit flat in terms of contrast. You're losing a lot of detail and texture. Cameras tend to flatten images when they take an average of the available lighting, so you're going to lose detail in the darks and the lights. Hope you don't mind, I adjusted the local contrast to show you what I mean.

    I don't really see the point to that picture.

    the point? i'm sorry. next time, i'll make sure there is some grand political/social/philosophical aspect to the pictures i take.

    I didn't say it wasn't a good picture. All I meant was that I am inadequate at logically rating creativity. In other words: That could be the worst, or best picture taken, and I wouldn't know the difference.

    Thats because you're going about it the wrong way. Even people who cannot paint, or draw, or take good pictures, knows a good painting, drawing or picture when they see one. And thats because a good piece of art can have an impact on a very broad range of viewers, not just a select few. While this picture is missing that sort of pop that makes really good photographs what they are, that doesn't mean that you, as a human, cant appreciate in some capacity what has been taken. To deny such a facility is almost ridiculous.

    no depth, no contrast, if the kid is the point of interest surely you could have taken the picture to show that. The composition doesn't work at all.

    Keep working and look around a lot it's just a matter of taking pictures every day. And also do some research on great photographers to see what makes a photograph great, of course the subject is important, but not really necessary. Check out Henri Cartier-Bresson.
