    9 friends in a picture.

    The light wasn't the best, actually was the one that is not so recommended, at noon.
    I tried a preset, and I love the tonality of the colors.
    Need some critiques, please.

    Thank you !

    It's a great image, Lovin. Creative poses and the treatment works well. Make sure you friends get at the very least a 5x7 each.

    Ditto to BF's comments Lovin...I know that's at Long beach on Vancouver Island right? I'd recognize that rock anywhere...I have a few shots of it myself!
    I miss camping there....

    Unless I miss my guess, that looks like a German Shorthair cradled in your friends arms. Very cool dogs and I once had one myself.

    It's really hard to get group shots that rock. This is a nice casual shot and your friends will surely be happy, but it's just a group shot.
    To improve the shot technically, there was enough room to include the feet and I would have likely moved the whole group to the right so that the rock was not right behind the left dude's head. The vignetting is cool but I'm not fond of the blue cast in the faces of the people.

    To make the shot rock on a creative level, for me they'd need to be doing something more special. (being naked or forming a pyramid, forming a straight line and shooting them from an angle, having half their bodies in the sand....etc.) Even if they all walked toward us in unison...
    Hope that helps - Marko

    My mistake has been seeking new landscapes. I should have been seeking new light.

    Yes, that's a german brac, 4 months old

    Thank you Marko ! Next time, everyone will be naked posing "walking like an Egyptian"
    Yes, that is what I was looking for. next time I'll pay more attention to details like what you've said.
    It wasn't time for creativity in that moment, and it was noon, and I tried to make it interesting by adding the surreal preset.

    Thank you everyone !
