Guillaume, I am effected by this shot, and I always like that. I totally love it. As Jennifer stated, that solemn look amongst the more like hearted ones is amazing. It will remain in my memory, and my favourites, so I can keep coming back to look at it.
Technically, you've done an excellent job. The way you have only the solemn face in focus with the other just slightly out of focus, also exposure and composition too are perfect. Very well done!

I like the mood of this photo a lot. Suitably grainy, yet plenty of sharp detail, down most way of the side street too. I might have possibly cropped out a little of the road in the foreground.
Nice Photographer's note too. I thought at first you knew this man, but your amusing note cleared that up. You have a good understanding of Japan.
Thanks for sharing this.

Welcome to Trek Earth Koichi!
I like this photo. The exposure is very good, allowing us to see the highlights in the water, and still be able to see the detail in the mountains too. I also like the fact that there is a little space in front of the boat for them to sail into.

Nice opening shot Vladimir. Welcome to TE.
I like the composition, with building to the right of the frame and the bridge starting from the centre of the frame out to centre left. Although a little grainy, it doesn't bother me and it is very well exposed for the bright areas, keeping the nice blue in the lights.

I also snapped this species a couple of times in the Everglades National Park. (Take a look here if you are interested.) It took a few days on returning home, but I found it to be a skimmer species called "Celithemis Eponina".
I like your composition and DOF. You were lucky to find this guy doing a dance for you too.
Night Life ! by Seastro (176)

Visually this photo has lots of minute areas of interest to draw the eye in.
Technically, I find the fact that it is a little blurred a little frustrating, but the white balance of this shot is absolutely perfect. the white light on the streets is interesteing and the yellow lights of the buildings maintains the typical nightscape feel.
You might want to try some sharpening, or Fred Miranda Digital Darkroom, "Intellisharpen Pro" PhotoShop plugin if you use PS. I think this would greatly improve the shot.
Having said that, it is very nice.

Africa has always been in the top three countries I'd like to visit. Now it's number one!
Metering for the bright areas of this scene was spot on, and composition is perfect. Can't fault it.

Wow! This really is nice. The DOF and composition are spot on, and the colours beautiful. I find myself craning my neck and turning it around to the same angle as the cub. :-)
Very interesting note too. Thanks for sharing this.
