Your Photo: Our Critique

Craig Pace submitted this image taken with a Canon 40D, with an exposure of 30 seconds, at f/1.6, ISO 200. Overall this photo has a nice feel to it, good placement of the person against a sky of stars. At closer look, the execution of this photo has caused the person to not be as sharp as the fence. This could be due to the shallow depth of field but is more likely due to the person moving just a tad during the thirty second exposure.

Craig put some thought into this and the colors of the sky, the fence and the chair blend together then the stark white shirt stands out in great contrast to the rest of the scene. The light on the foreground is nice and even. The vertical crop allows the viewer to get lost in the stars while the white shirt draws interest back into the frame.
