    Default Potrait of a Tiger (Toy)

    Hi decided to just play around with my cam and took this pic of a stuff toy tiger



    exif:
    iso: 3200
    aperture: F4.5
    shutter speed: 1/50s

    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    Composition, overall potrait feel

    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    As a practice for shooting potrait shots, I gave it a shot and hope for C&C to see how can i furthur inprove

    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    Was just fiddling with my cam in my bedroom in the middle of the afternoon when i took the shot

    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    It might be a lil soft?

    In case you might wonder why there isn't anyone wanted to critique or comment on this photo.

    This looks like a photo taken simply for ebay or a blogshop without care about its composition.

    Hi WhitePaper - Guess Composition skills will comes with experience and practice (plus reading some articles/books). I will have to agree with coolthought.

    I will add that in term of portrait technique, focusing on the eye is an impt aspect (which you have done). But for portrait photography, I would NOT do it in such a dim light environment.

    I'm still a newbie (to the forum) so maybe I'm not qualified to critique, take it as my two-cents comment.

    What is interesting for me is the fact that Pentax DSLR camera does quite well at ISO-3200. I was expecting a lot of noise at ISO above 1600 but guess I need to learn more about other camera makers.
