Agatha Pretorius: Winning Picture - Well seen photo. Nice and moody atmosphere. To enhance this image, maybe you could have placed a person object of size in the midle between the steps and the sea edge to accentuate size. Also be very carefull to present an image with the horizon perfectly horizontal.

Agatha Pretorius: 'n Baie mooi en skerp landskap toneel, maar effe besig met plante op die voorgrond. Die foto is goed belig en mooi in fokus.

Boitumelo Boweni: Focus on shoe is nice and sharp. Unfortunately the plant in front of shoe is very distracting. A better point would have beem obtained had more attention been paid to setup and composition.

Christine Smit: Lighting is used quite well here. The problem is that the eyes of the model are not totally sharp in this image and moves more to the left arm. Tip: Going in close on a subject like this requires you to switch to manual focus where you can manually focus where it matters most, which is normally the eyes.

Christine Smit: Die dogtertjie wat met haar rug rustig teen die muur sit en oog kontak maak lyk so asof sy kwaad gedoen het en half verleë is. Die foto is ongelukkig nie skerp op die oë nie en die hardheid van die son pla op die regterkant van haar gesiggie, hempie en arm. Mooi raakgesien.

Emma Struwig: Good photo idea. Use flash to illuminate inside of ears.

Marie-Lynette Schmidt: Well seen shot. I like the idea of using the branches and other objects to create a natural frame for the rainbow. Always make sure to keep the camera steady, as I pick up some camera blur.

Marie-Lynette Schmidt: Die foto is pragtig raakgesien, maar is ongelukkig te besig op die voorgrond en ook nie mooi in fokus nie. Die skewe lamppaal voor links asook die voorgrond in totaliteit trek jou aandag van die reënboog af. Probeer volgende keer wanneer 'n reënboog afgeneem word so min as moontlik iets op jou voorgrond te hou.

Natasha Buys: Main topic of photo hidden behind the leaves.

Natasha Buys: The photo would have performed better if the focus was sharp. Tip; when doing these kind of photo`s, make sure you have also checked out the back ground and tried to isolate your subject from it. When you have a busy back ground like this, one`s eye is inclined to wander and not settle othe true subject.

Siyabonga Sambo: Die foto is baie

Siyabonga Sambo: Die foto is baie "blurry", oorbelig, nie in fokus en heeltemal te besig, probeer die kamera baie goed stilhou wanneer shutter gedruk word en probeer om nie pale en telefoonlyne deel te maak van 'n foto nie.

Siyabonga Sambo: Photo not clear. Maybe photo was taken with old model cell phone. By moving slightly to the right the pole obstructing the players would have been eliminated.
