A few days ago a few of us were discussing the concept of constructive criticism vs. the "wow - great shot" comments that are so common amongst polite folks... There are so many great photographers/artists at this site already I thought I might try this little experiment. My purpose in posting this photo is to get constructive feedback. Specifically, I already know of several things that I would have done differently with this pic, but I'd love to hear ideas from the larger group on what you would have done differently. Some of the ideas I will probably already know about, but I'm hopeful there will be many that I haven't considered. I already know that I've got much to learn, so help me! My skin is pretty thick, so let me have it. All aspects of the photo are fair game: composition, acquisition/exposure, post processing, whatever ideas you may have. My only request is this: "that's a lousy picture" is OK, but please say why, and if possible, what you would have done differently. I suspect we can all learn something in this process. Here's one that I know is less-than-perfect. Tell me how you would make it better next time!
