    be careful about your crop,i would raise this up a bit, so his fingers isn’t in the shot.

    You’ve done it! Definitely an interesting backlit image! really nice! Well done! May have just placed them a little more to the left to use those strong vertical lines to frame them. Its a little too close to his head at the moment! Great shot though!

      Thank you so much it’s those little things that escape me however I can see if I had centered them it would’ve added to the symmetry to the shot

    Great job on the backlight. I think you definitely passed the assignment .. My critique is the posing … it may look more natural/intimate with their bodies touching rather than apart

    Nice work, colours, contrast, lighting, all looks pretty great. Compositionally I wish this red object wasn’t in the foreground, and the camera feels a bit tilted. Moving to the left a bit and switching to a vertical composition might bring more emphasis to the subjects and result in a more “classic” portrait. Really nice work overall.

      Thank you!! I agree, I did take a few vertical unfortunately there is a rather unsightly fountain right in front that in the end I decided I gave up the vertical shot and framed this horizontally.

    Love this! You got some great feedback from several that I agree with. Just keep practicing and you’ll start to notice those little things and correct them as you shoot. Things I love about this shot: the bokeh, sun flare/back lighting, color toning, etc.
