This picture was taken in a Camp. The participants were playing a icebreaking game by blowing the Ping Pong ball into the bowl next to a tray of flour.

The scoresheet shows the flour being smeared on it to show the mess created by the game. The top left corner looks grainy because the picture was underexposed, I need to edit the picture so it looks brighter.

Please help me C&C so I can improve on my skills. THANKS!

This pic would work in a montage... As a single pic like that, i cannot feel the game by looking at the pic.

A montage means a group of shots, a series.

Either way, this image does not really serve to tell much of a story. The scoreboard is seldom a very intriguing subject on its own.

to me its not decent because the original image was super underexposed. this is after PP which i adjusted the levels and contrast.

Knowing that it is not decent yourself, why do you still want to put it up for serious critique? There must be some level of self-critique. Learn to be critical (but not excessively) about your own work. :)

this would be better given a context, for example, how the flour got there, what the thing is about.

if you look at the picture yourself, what do you think, if you had not participated or witnessed the ongoings?

this is what i think.. ok, there's a pencil, there's a paper with gibberish, and there is flour. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

composition wise i wanna noe if it is ok. its very underexposed originally because i did not have a external flash and the built in flash will spoil it so i didnt use. in the end i shoot it at a higher shutter speed and do the necessary PP.
