  1. I like how you composed this. Styling is nice and simple. Good focal length. Pretty shot overall!

  2. Very nicely done. I really like the overall treatment here. And agree with Jenn’s comments. Did the original crop include more along the bottom? If so, I’d be curious to see how this might look with a little more floor and possibly a touch less ceiling (I don’t mind a cropped light fixture). With the current crop, my eye wants to wander up to the ceiling/light fixture. Also, for the contest, maybe do a slight transform of the light fixture? From this angle, I’d expect it to look more perfectly symmetrical. Wouldn’t mind seeing just a touch more detail in the low wall on the left, to more clearly define the bench/shelving area. And I’m a little torn about the reflection on the shower wall. It sort of grabs my attention, and also interrupts the detail in that interesting shower tile. But without it, I wonder if a little of the life in the scene might be lost?

  3. Nice shot of what appears to be a relatively tight space. I feel like the staging has one item too many. Not sure which piece has to go. It's a puzzle I'd have to play with on-site I guess. Julie's comment on the transform of the light is spot on I believe. The shadow from the pendant over the sink is confusing the directionality of light for me. I like how the photographer showed just enough of the sink to let us know it's there. So many times I see the choice made to show more than necessary. Appreciate the composition on this less than spacious en suite.

  4. I like this shot a lot. I really enjoy the framing effect from the cabinet on the left and vanity on the right. The fact that they are dark tones adds a lot of contrast and a naturally occurring vignette to bring the eye into the shot. It works really well! I agree with Julie's sentiment about the top of the photo grabbing too much attention. I'd address that with a gradient to darken it a touch, to fully round out the vignette effect. With that simple brush stroke I think the overall good composition is un-touched, but helps to focus the eye where it should be going. Regarding the styling, it looks nice. I would have probably swapped the two plants, so the larger one is on the left and the smaller one is on the right. The left side plant is farther away, so placing the larger plant there instead will make it smaller. Conversely, the smaller plant will get a little bigger on the right side, closer to the camera, but because it has much thinner foliage, it won't feel like such an obstruction. I might have thinned out a couple of the other smaller items too. But of course, you may not have had permission or time to do any of those things, so take those sentiments as nothing more than "in a perfect world" advice. This is well done and I like it very much.

  5. I do like the composition. could use some work on the shower tile reflection (just taming it a slight bit would help a lot... not completely as I believe its coming from the window - actually adding some contrast or texture etc to that area carefully might help) also I think overall its a bit on the soft side and its lacking some depth in toning... staging more than likely wasn't Photographers fault but it is a little distracting especially the large plant near camera on right... if it was allowed I would have grabbed it and taken it out completely. Also the pendant on right is super large and stretched so I would have maybe tightened up a bit more for this shot... scooted tripod back (micro movements and zoomed in bit by bit, maybe could have tightened up the sides and taken a little stretch off that pendant (also cutting it in half with the edge of the frame would help) Also I think cropping off the top edge of the frame down into the top of the ceiling fixture would help the distortion of the center hanging light, ditching the attachment to the ceiling... But well done on centering up well on the star of the show and getting all the main elements into the frame without shooting too wide ...
