    I have a total bubble gum case, so I'm just waiting to see what sticks to the wall. I've done 2 cross country moves, and had major ankle surgery over the last year so cobbling a case together was...tough.

    Larry, the case hating is a good luck thing around here.

    So, with that said, I hate all of your cases for you, please return the favor!

    Paul - I know you posted this a while ago, but from the title I expected a cherub-looking child or a baby squeezing a dad's finger...then I am presented with a fashionable woman with a strong jaw and a bit of an intimidating look to her. The title and the image seem very incongruous.

    Again I know this is long after it might be relevant, but two suggestions:
    - soften the line on her nose where the light and shadow meet...at first glance I thought she was a mannequin for the shark angle it made
    - I would retouch out the shiny string holding the blinds together in the background.

    Do we post for critique all year round?

    I still need to read up on the rules for images and so forth. New to this site. Would like to put myself out there an see what is said about an image for possible submission though.

    Please be kind as far as crop or specs since I am still trying to find my way around still.

    (I am not finding a way to upload so am just adding a link. Hope that is ok)

    Hey Cynthia,
    This is a very cool image. I like the lines that lead you to the subject and the striking color. I believe it needs to be cropped tighter to remove some of the out of focus boat and make the lines more concise. It also needs a punch to the color and contrast to give it more impact. The tail of her coat also might be considered for removal since it leads your eye out of the frame.

    I love the soft whites and the reds in the image - that gives it some visual interest and nice color. I do however have some issues with the horizon line going through her head and there's some distracting dark spots in the distance that could use cleaned up. I agree with Jeff's points, as well. Where did you capture this?

    Good luck in competition, it's a wonderful learning tool!

    This image draws me in. I only have two comments: first, his left hand is significantly brighter than the right and than his face; I think it should be toned down just a bit. Second, above his left shoulder (upper camera right) is a light streak with no obvious cause; perhaps that should go, too.
