1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Everything: composition, sharpness, colour etc
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
Show and emphasise the beauty in the colours and textures of a snail shell. People rarely think of snails as beautiful things and most people think they look disgusting.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Shot after accidentally discovering this snail outside my front door.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I like the textures of the shell, but the pic looks rather uninteresting because of the background (just the floor outside my house). I also don't like the blue halo around the snail's head, anyone have any idea what happened there? I can clone it away easily, but just want to ask where this blue halo could have come from.
