    Weekly Critique Thread: June 19 - June 25

    For the weekly critique threads, there are 3 simple rules we hope you'll follow:
    1) Before posting a photo, please take the time to comment on a couple of photos in the thread, giving constructive criticism or explaining what you like about the photo. You do not have to go in depth about what you like and dislike. You can just simply state what you liked about the photo. We really want involvement from posters.
    2) Post 1 photo a week. Please do not post multiple photos in one post (or post multiple photos in a row). Allow others to join in as well. Post photos as a reply to the OP and post critiques as replies to photos. This should keep things nice and clean.
    3) Please list the settings used, if available. These settings are:


    • Focal Length
    • Aperture
    • Shutter Speed
    • ISO
    • Camera Model


    Do not worry if you're not experienced in photography, the aim of this thread is to learn from each other.
    Need help linking photos to the critique thread? Here are two ways that use Flickr and Imgur!
    Finally, always makes sure to preview your comments before posting. If your photo doesn't load, then you need to fix the photo link/HTML code. This will keep the thread clean from broken photo comments.

    I see what you’re going for the with rail foreground although here I think it would be a stronger image without it. The rest of the image is pretty solid though, well done.

    I like the sunset colours in this. I’m not sure if I would’ve included the railing but it does make an interesting juxtaposition of a man made element among the natural landscape.

    Interesting shot. That’s a pretty impressive sunset, and I like how the railing points to the horizon. The HDR’s handled well for a nice natural scene. I’d darken the lower left hand corner of the frame—I think this would help the mountain range and the sun setting over the valley pop a bit more.

    Interesting choice to keep the railing in the foreground! It has some surprising shapes, colours, and textures compared to the rest of the image which makes it novel, but it is a little distracting at the same time because of that.
    The rest of the image is very pleasing generally though, especially when zoomed in so that I can see all the details of the city lights below. The gradations in the sunset are quite beautiful, too, like a laserbeam across the horizon.
