lemon! I've done already 2 pictures with lemon, but i didn't like them... lemons are so not photogenic u.u

So I hope this one is alright!

I love lemons, I always eat the slice of lemon from my friends' coca cola drink :3!

J'adore it honey. The concept of lemons can be kinda hard to comprehend at times because a lemon is both sour, yet sweet at times and it shows in your picture.

I love the idea of black lips with the bright yellow, good contrasting colours. I like you eyes in this picture a lot, they are blue and wide like the lemon is really sour and it works perfectly for your concept ( if you have one :lol: ).

Well I think I should explain my scoring:

4.5 Stars for vision because at first the yellow is an eye sore but when you take a little bit of time to actually look at it, its a beautiful portrait.

5.0 Stars for originality, technique, and impact because I've never seen fruit used like this before, your way of taking a photo like this is amazing and cute, and finally, the colours your personality your affect with make-up makes a beautiful piece that will never go out of style.
What do you think?

Vision 4/5
Looks as though you are trying to convey the sour, bright flavor of lemon. I gave this 4 because the final image looks pretty clean and well planned, minus a few things which I will go into detail about in the technique section. I enjoy the way the black lipstick emphasizes the pucker of the lips and completes the inward diagonal tilt of the cheekbones, as though to further emphasize the bright sourness of the lemon. Also, that the emphasis isn't so much on the lemon itself, but instead on the eyes. The power of the lemon translates directly into her stare.

Originality 5/5
Overall, a clever and effective way to display a lemon theme!

Technique 3.5/5
I have split technique in half. 50% for photography/modelling skill etc. 50% for editing, coloring, cropping etc. Photographic and modelling skill is bang on, however I did have some issues with the editing which is why I did partial marks. Here are the issues:

*digital signature over the lemon is distracting
*seems like hair should be pulled back tight, not hanging loose on one side, to tie in with the tight puckered feel of the lemon.
*cropping should have include the forehead, since this the model is reacting heavily with her eyes to the flavor of lemon, it would be more effective to see her full expression
*black lipstick seems to be crumbling off onto lemon, could be edited out for a cleaner image.
*transparent white lines and black dots on the eyes..Seem to be added digitally and look slightly careless on the models left eye, on right side of image. The distribution of lines and dots seems to be almost half of what you put on the right eye, pulls the viewer to the side.

Impact: 4/5
Impact would have received a perfect five if the signature was not covering one of the main focal points of the image, and the left eye did not direct attention off to the side instead of to the center of the image, but overall a very powerful and attention grabbing image!

Nice work! :) I know my critique is a bit different than the other one here but I hope this helps you in some way.

If life gives you lemons, you take it in your mouth, do your make up, and make an awesome and funny shot of it.
Hillarious. :-D
