1. In what area is critique to be sought?
B&W Post-processing. Should colour cast be added?
2. What one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
3. Under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
Noticed this giant mushroom with huge cracks which reminded of an assignment in school
4. What the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture.
I looked at the colour photo and I thought with added contrast they don't look contrasty enough to show the cracks, so used B&W to bring out the cracks. I find the details on the mushroom head well defined.
