color palette logo Welcome to the Photography critiques!


Would you like a second opinion before nominating a photograph of yours as a Quality Image, Valued Image or Featured Picture candidate, can't decide which of your images to enter into one of the Photo Challenges? Or do you have specific questions about how to improve your photography or just would like some general feedback?

This is the right page to gather other people's opinions!

If you want general suggestions to a good photo, you can ask here, and we already wrote guidelines.

See image guidelines >>

If you don't get some terminology used here, don't be shy you can ask about it, or read

See photography terms >>

Please insert new entries at the bottom, and comment on oldest entries first.

To prevent archiving use {{subst:DNAU}}, because SpBot archives all sections after 90 days, unless archiving has been postponed or suppressed through the use of {{subst:DNAU}}. You can ask the bot to archive a section earlier by using {{Section resolved|1=~~~~}} – then it will be archived after 7 days.



Hi guys, I made some new photos and want to ask, if they could be QI-worthy? Or what could I optimize?

Thanks a lot for your feedback!

Only one way to find out for sure! Buidhe (talk) 16:09, 17 August 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I see you nominated the first one. For the second, optimize the focus on the painting. For the others, congratulations on the ones that passed. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:55, 8 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Quality image or valued image etc[edit]

Here are some of my photography. Can anyone tell me if these could be nominated for quality image or valued image etc. If not, what's the problem and how can I improve my skill? Thanks in advance.

All of these are too noisy or unsharp to be quality images. Whether they are VIs or not depends on what other photos there are in scope: See Commons:Valued image scope. In terms of composition, try not to have tilted images unless that's intentional and there's a good artistic reason for it. I also suspect your mobile phone or whatever it is you're using to take photos does not have a good enough camera for you to be able to take a quality image with it. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 09:53, 8 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
