Your Photo: Our Critique

Zack Papagelis submitted this photo taken with a Canon 30D, with an exposure of 1/250sec at f/8, ISO 200. This is a candid image; unfortunately the subject’s line of sight takes the viewer directly out of the frame. Had the subject been looking the other direction, his eyes would help to guide the viewer’s eyes across the image, allowing them to take in the scene behind him. Go ahead and straighten the horizon in the background next time.

The positives here are that he is framed within the wooden lines from the windows and the light on him is even and shows detail in his expression.
