    Not a bad idea, I'm just not agreeing with the vignetting in your picture.

    The 2 white 'rectangles' are also rather distracting, but of course it was on the TLR, so you couldn't avoid it.

    You mentioned it's a different perspective to take a picture. I feel that you're giving the perspective of a TLR photographer and not a different perspective from you as the photographer. Perhaps a slightly closer composition might have worked.

    Overall, I think its a good idea, great effort.
    Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.

    This is nice !

    Love the creativity and feel of the pic. The colour tones are soothing.

    Really like the blurring and slight bokeh around the edges, was selective blurring added via post processed ?

    Nothing much to critic except the ?bag? in the background would be less distracting if it was straight ? Then again this is just nitpicking

    I think you should not ask for critiques based on feelings, Because only you know what you want to achieve. And it wouldnt be a very fair critique to be inputting too much of a personal preference.

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?

    using a different perspective to take a picture

    Its not too much of a different perspective because it is still a first person point of view and a singular picture. But that that is just my opinion. To have a different perspective is to have a photo taken diffently apart from the common normal point of view.

    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)

    saw my gf taking picture through TLR and this idea strike me

    I dun think its a technique issue, its probably more based on composition. Maybe a slightly wider shot to give the subject more breathing space may be good. And becareful of the slight tilt in the horizon. =) Overall i like this image quite alot. Keep shooting.

    Very nicely done. Like to see the serial number clearly and what is the 2 white rectangle thingy blur in the foreground?

    Overall, I look the vintage feel and the screen within screen effect.

    i agree, i feel the bag is kinda distracting, but its still quite a very reminiscent shot. the tree and the.. tent?!? gives me a very feel good feel old feeling?

    color and tone wise, very soothing, the vignetting a little too much. overall its a nice picture. =) think can use for the rain-tree media thingy ad. haha

    Thanks for the detail input. as i am using a 50mm with d60.. therefore no auto focus, kinda hard to keep in focus for me.. hahaha.. but i will take note about the wider shot next time..

    Cool, often we see pictures taken behind from pns/dslr camera.
    This is rather refreshing from a TLR perspective , and the rain tree adds a nice scenic touch.

    Except that the 2 rectangles look like a pair of eyes staring haha
