Criticism (Three Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on

My personal view is that most photographs can be subject to criticism, positive and negative. Criticism can be useful if it’s done right and makes you think about how you might have approached something differently. A great way to give positive feedback is to say I like photo x over photo y and then explain why. These three wood duck photos meet my level of satisfaction but someone could say for example, that the nose is too close to the water, that the angle at which a photo was taken is too extreme and the depth of field could have been better. Criticism whether well done or not should be something sought not avoided, it helps to see through otherseyes, understand what various people like or dislike, and understand how they see your work. It’s not always fun, but it can be.

  1. So true. Criticism without an explanation is of no value to the receiver, except to tell them that the critic is perhaps just being vindictive.

  2. You make a great point, explaining what could make it a better photo is very helpful.

  3. So true! I can say there is nothing to say about these those. It looks like perfection to me!

  4. Excellent Wood Duck photos, I’ve only seen these birds a few times in my life. The colours of the water add a lot of interest.
