  1. Thank you Karl I appreciated you feedback on my image, I will definitely work on making the face the main focus.

    1. Thank you and glad you enjoyed the critique, obviously also take note of the other entries critiques and information too as I think globally this helps provide a better overall understanding of what makes images work.

  2. I seem to have missed the deadline having submitted at 5pm Central Time in the U.S. (11pm in the U.K.). next time, I suppose.

  3. Hi Karl,
    This is unrelated to this topic but didn´t quiet know where to post it, so please excuse me for dropping you a line where I shouldn´t. Looking to buy a sturdy studio tripod that won´t brake the bank. Don´t have room for a studio column. Any advise will be appreciated.

    As much as I hate to admit it, submitting an image for this critique required a refresh on understanding file resizing. Also, I was a bit confused by the stated “3000 pixel size on the long edge and 5MB” image submission requirement and then when I got to the point of uploading the file, I saw in the drop box area, the max image size was something like….180 MB?? No worries, I probably missed something in Karl’s image resizing vid that I reviewed over a year ago. Maybe he’ll quickly address this during the actual critique.

    1. Hi, I don’t think our system will accept 180mb so that might be a type on our part. If the image is 3000 pixels on the longest edge and saved as Jpeg it should only be around 2 to 5mb.
