Critique: Buttercup - PPA Today

Critique: Buttercup

By Chris Homer

Several PPA District Photographic Competitions are right around the corner! While entries for these competitions are closed, you can watch the live stream of each and see the judging happen live. PPA's International Photographic Competition also begins accepting entries May 23 and it's never too early to start preparing your images!

Entering a District Competition or the International Photographic Competition is one of the best ways to improve your images! Especially if you choose to have your images critiqued by one of PPA's International Jurors. We know the process can seem intimidating for first-timers, so here's a look at an actual critique from the 2015 International Photographic Competition. This is "Buttercup" by Lois Stanfield being critiqued by PPA juror James Wyant, M.Photog.Cr. Take a look and see how entering a District Competition or the International Photographic Competition can improve your own work as a photographer through constructive feedback like you'll hear in this critique.

We hope this critique can help you get a better understanding of what the International Photographic Competition judges are looking for when scoring your images. Head to the District Competition section of PPA's website to see when upcoming live streams of District Competitions will be happening and also start preparing your images for the International Photographic Competition! Be sure to get a critique so you can receive some personalized feedback on your works of art.
