In a Google doc or Word doc critique the photos on the following criteria:

  • Does the text in the shot reflect the mood of the photograph?
  • Does the image use line to create a sense of depth in the image?
    Does the image demonstrate thinking outside the box?
  • What attracted you to this photo? What makes it different from the rest?
    Technical aspects (is the image in focus, does it need to be cropped, Photoshop work?)
    Did they use a composition technique? Which one and how? (Framing, rule of thirds, or leading lines)?
