There were two pictures I had problems with. One is of the woman with the lightbulb. She looks as if she is sitting on the toilet. The second picture is the one right after the toilet one. She looks as if she is very uncomfortable. The angles are wrong for a pleasing display of a person. Not the best choice of posing on either of those. However, the lighting is good on both of them.

Thank janet for your comments did you see the galries in the website or you didnt notice it

It's nice (nice pics also), but the intro delays all the good stuff coming quite a lot.

Re: I need your opinions about this work

Everything they said ^^

+ The home looks awful - out of focus - looks like you couldn't find a better Ftv Logo so you went and made everything else blurry.

+ + Don't tell ppl what they should figure out themselves
"Professional work" - thank you I'll be the judge of that (not me in particular, but the viewer)
"Kareen Nour for Mag" - Thank you I'll be the judge of that (Now I'm referring to magazine editors)

+++ DO NOT push the music... I turned it off, went to one of the galleries BUM music again... no no no I already said no thank you

I like some of the photography you do(specially your fashion work), not all (specially not the portraits)

Good luck!

Re: I need your opinions about this work

I think your getting quite harsh criticism here. I think generally your work is pretty good, its more the website that is the problem, in particular the intro. You can have an intro but you should have a very clear way of skipping it because most people will do. An I always think music is a terrible idea unless it has a reason. Often people are listening to either there own music or radio etc and it gives a negative reaction straight away when you here something you didn't choose.

I kinda like the one with lightbulb where she looks like she's on the toilet but I suppose this is not your intention. The main one I didn't like is of the guy with the punchbag. He looks very cut out and therefore not so professional.

Yes, I think the same than Lazyfruit. Also, the first pics in the slideshow, the ones before the girl over the car (from this one to the next ones I find no problems), they're not your best pics. You have much better ones inside your galleries to show off in the slideshow.

By the way, very nice B/W you have

Re: I need your opinions about this work

Dear kareem...

The photographic work is better than the environment. The intro and music are getting in the way if what you're selling -- your image. If I wasn't looking at the site in regard to your post, I would have left before getting to the images. If you must have music, keep it really low in the background so it doesn't detract from your work.

You have a lot of terrific work, but the work is not of a consistent high caliber. Some of it is stunning, while others are common. You don't need to show everything you've ever done.

There is way too much work shown in the site, and some of it isn't helping you. Show your best work. If people can't figure out from 50 of your images what they think of you as a photographer, the next 250 aren't going to help them make up their minds.

Good luck to you. Hope you are doing well. Take care. Alan.
