The human presence adds a lot,so is the title!
Excellent choice on both!
Everything is where it should be (horizon on the upper third & figure on the cross line of the second third and the first third vertically).
Good framing on this.
So well done!

According to popular tradition, the nine stripes represent the nine syllables of the phrase "Ελευθερία ή Θάνατος" ("Freedom or Death", the five blue stripes for the syllables "Έλευθερία" (Freedom) and the four white stripes "ή Θάνατος" (Death).

There is a blue canton in the upper hoist-side corner bearing a white cross the cross symbolises Eastern Orthodox Christianity, the established religion of the Greek people of Greece and Cyprus.

And it is sunny...the whole year!

Well done.
It stood out from most of the rest entry's.
I had a look on your portfolio and you are very promising...
If i may...a bit of advice (not really an advice).
Quality over quantity.
You don't have to submit 4 or 5 entry's on each contest.
You have a very good "eye" so you have to be more confident (if you don't feel very..you will get there pretty soon).
Choose your photos carefully & don't submit all 5 photos just for you to have more chances of have a wining one!
I hope you don't get this the wrong way.

Excellent mood you have captured here author. Just a small piece of advice. Turning the chair slightly on an angle so it doesn't face straight to the camera will give more depth to the whole photo. The armchair you used has a really nice shape & texture. Overall well lit and composed.

Hi there author. This photo has a lot of potential but there's something missing & I think is a more dramatic light. I'm not trying to be a smart ass here but I think that the whole scenery is quite good but it lacks of mood. Quite there but not there yet. It's kinda flat IMHO but not bad at all. Maybe a low key version would look much better. Wish you all the best.

TIME MACHINE

If i where you i would compose this a little bit different...

I would roll & place a piece of paper inside the bottle(you don't have to write something on it) & i would burn the edges just a bit & fold it (to give an old texture to it).

I would search for a sandy sea shore with a beautiful sunset on the background,dig a small hole on the sand & place the bottle in it (so it looks like the sea washed it on the shore).

Using swallow DOF (1.8-2.8) & rule of thirds i would bring the viewers eye directly to the bottle leaving the sand & sunset blur (the water & the sun would create a beautiful bokeh on the background).

Your b/g right now is very busy with objects that have nothing to add to your photo & the bottle is dead center.

This is just me off course & my opinion only!
Sorry if i sound hard.

You capture very well the "Savana" mood here author.
The cactus tree does not fit correctly with the whole scenery(trees in savana are tall and wide on the top) but thats a minor detail.
I really like the color of the sky & the mountain on the background.
Creative thinking if you ask me.
Well done!

The BOH on the sky are little distracting but thats a minor detail...

A closer crop would be perfect here.
You have lot's of lines,colors & curves to make a beautiful abstract!
Just my opinion.

Lines & curves

A tighter frame (to create a repetitive pattern) would be better IMHO.

This typewriter is even older than mine.
From the angle i guess this is a exhibit on a museum or some thing.
If not...you should definitely include the whole typewriter in you frame.
It's a wonderful piece.

Goal (2)....hopefully
avatar karaflazz
karaflazz says:

I see you improve your composition (on your first photo the pot was hiding the bottle).
Lighting is definitely better but there is still lots of noise in high resolution.
The folds on the b/g add a lot.

karaflazz says:

Aha...still life,one of my favorites!
First of all i really like the wooden bow but i would prefer if the pillow & the light ray where missing.The old furniture on the back is a plus & the angle of view is all so nice.
I mostly use artificial light & i know there might be difficulties with natural light but is a very nice composition.
All so try to keep you composition balanced.It would be better if the tablecloth was placed horizontally (so you loose those "nasty" white triangles).
I wish you good luck & thank you for participating in this contest!

Much better don't you think?
If a photo is a set up (composition)you have all the time you want to "correct" all the small imperfections/flaws.Small details makes a big difference...Have a great night too!!!!

Hard work today honey, good night!
avatar karaflazz
karaflazz says:

Nice idea but i think that you should loose the black part on the top left.Maybe a better framing would do the job.
All so there is lots of noise in high resolution.

If you had turn the box just a little bit to the right we would be able to see the "less" illuminated side of it & it would look much much better.
Nice colors & lighting tho!
