Your Photo: Our Critique

Leaves sent in by Jen Marriner captures the feeling of fall. The leaves caught in mid flight add to the image. The leaf blocking the child’s eye might bother some but it actually frames his other eye and brings more attention to it. The exposure is well done and Jen did not get fooled by the background light. A lot of people let the camera make decisions and in most cases the subject is underexposed but in this case the light is very well balanced.

Next time shoot this vertically which would bring a framing full of falling leaves and boy.
