    Weekly Critique Thread: July 10 - July 16

    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.

    Really nice, actually! It’s easy to complain about people shooting the typical sort of "boring" subjects that we have easy access to (squirrels, pigeons, seagulls, etc…), but this is just very well executed. I like how the tail leads you into the frame, the background is vibrant without being distracting, and the way the squirrel is perched is just cute.
    My only complaint would be the branches in the bottom right are a bit distracting. I might consider cropping from the right a bit, and I would maybe even cheat a bit and cloned out the branches – the background bokeh is very uniform, so it wouldn’t be hard or look that out of place.

    Very nice and helpful comment! I agree about the crop, and do think going in tighter from the right would improve the image. Thanks!
