Any questions or ideas you want to discuss about your image are welcome.


Things to keep in mind when choosing an image

          Composition and exposure

          Clarity - is your image sharp

          Post editing techniques - is your image over exposed or over saturated

          When you are printing your image - is the color management correct?

          Topic - is it interesting - does it tell a story, is it creative or just a fun image.
