1. in what area is critique to be sought?
I hope to find advice mainly on composition, lighting and post processing tech. I deliberately took the photograph with my father's head in the center so I can photoshop the circular blur afterwards.
Took it with f/3.5 at 0.2s at iso800 as the room was a bit dark. Didn't used flash as I am afraid that it will overblow my father's face.
2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
I want to show the peace and heightened conscience through meditation. That's why I post process the circular blur.
3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
My father was doing his daily mediation and it suddenly struck me to take a photo without him noticing so it will be full natural. I felt the peacefulness behind it.
4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I feel that this will be one of the pictures which will be my stepping stone of improvement.
*edit* Changed photo to original virgin photo. The windows are slanted as my father was slanted to his right.
