1. in what area is critique to be sought?
Picture Composition; overall and everything with honest opinions and critiques. I've just started out photography just recently for the past 1 month (I'm a MUA). I'm sure there are lots of mistakes and erros in this picture, but I hope to learn more tips and techniques from the CS people out here.
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
To bring out the "freshness" & "softness" of the fruits. A photograph that will bring out the softer side of fruits?
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
This picture was taken using Canon 500D with a 28-135mm F3.5 - 5.6mm IS USM lens and YN 560-ii Speedlite, in a room at night. I've bounced the light at the back wall of the fruits to create a softer effect.
28mm F5.6 1/30
flash power : 1/8 (around that range, I've forgotten the exact power)
The picture posted in this thread was enhanced and edited with Photoshop. Edited with HDR toning.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I could have add up a more variety of different types of fruits to get more of a different color contrast and tones. This might spark up the overall picture. It seems a little "plain" and normal point & shoot photo to me. Please give me your honest critiques and advice, or you can show me some samples or ideas, so I could have room for improvement!
Thank you so much in advance!!
