Chen, to this question, I have asked at least two pro photographers.

They gave me a very great answers:
1. "A snapshot is nearer to life than a portrait."
2. "Forget it. There is now a term called snapshot portrait." :bsmilie:

You can go to the bookstore at Vivocity and flip any photo collection by famous photographers. You will discover that your pic is considered a portrait.

Look at more shots by good photographers and you will be surprised to find that there is no line between a portrait and a snapshot.

:D

The lighting was not ideal. The face is in the shadow. The background is a little too cluttered. The brown colour of the shed behind and the skin tone is close and does not do good to isolate the subject especially it is at where the face is.

The difference between a snapshot and a portrait is intent.

A picture can fail in its technical aspects but can be a success if it fulfills the creator's intent.

As for the picture itself, it's interesting but would make more sense as part of a collection. This is not a picture that can stand alone.
