* What do you like about the image? What draws you in or
makes the image interesting to you? Saying what worked in an
image is just as important as saying what didn't work - it
gives the photographer a chance to identify what techniques
work for the future.
* What parts of the image do you not like? Be specific - Be
* If you were there taking the photo, what would you do
instead? Of course, not everyone can answer this, so don't
feel too proud to say "I'm not sure what I would do".
Remember that the photographer has asked for critique, not
off the cuff remarks. Being vague is not always helpful.
Remember that you are critiquing an artwork that someone has
spent time and energy (and possibly some money) on. When
offering your opinion, bare in mind that, even if you are
only speaking of the image, people can still take your words
personally. Nobody is forcing you to like an image - you can
say that you don't, but be prepared to say why as well as
offer some comments on how the photograph could be improved.
