Friday Photo Critique is our weekly community project, where we publish a photograph submitted by one of our wonderful readers, then ask you all to offer constructive feedback on the image. It’s a great way to learn more about photography, express your viewpoint, and have your own image critiqued!
Quick Ground Rules
- Play nice! We’ve deliberately chosen photographs that aren’t perfect, so please be constructive with any criticism.
- Feel free to offer any type of advice – composition, lighting, post-processing etc.
- You can also link to photographs that you feel offer a great example of this type of image shot exceptionally well.
Without further ado, here is this week’s candidate for Friday Photo Critique!
Photo Details & Inspiration
I remember taking this photo in the capital of Iran (Tehran). It was a hot sunny day and I was exhausted. Back then, I didn’t have a professional camera so I was walking there with a small Canon Powershot.
When I was looking around for some interesting subjects to photograph, I noticed this cat staring at me like he knew that I was going to take some pictures of him and he really didn’t like it. But at the same time his eyes were saying, “Please take some pictures to show how cruel this world is.”
Photographer: Rassam Haraji
