I like 1 and 2 best, i think 1 could have been improved by placing the cake on a pice of coloured tissue rather than the plate as the blue seems a bit not quite right in that shot. 2 is pretty sharp but maybe a little overexposed
I like! Really nice. #1 and #2 are my favorite. Not a pro by any means but my opinion is that the shading around the photos does look good but I don't think it works for all of them... like the last one. But nice overall
That is a silly rule that maintains simply because people keep repeating it over and over again. Just comment on the ones that jump the most out at you - a C&C post isn't "all or nothing" in regards to the criticism.
With that said, numbers 2 and 5 are aces. Although in number five, I think the red may have spilled over into the young lady's face.
I prefer nr 4 . It's artistic, in a way that it makes you wonder what the man is doing there. Photos like this make the observer create his/her own imaginary world, and that's a good quality if you ask me
