Firstly, I just want to say that the quality of this photo is superb. I think that the clarity, the colors, and the lighting are all fantastic. In regards to the background, I know that there are not always great places available to take photos at conventions or meetups, but it's slightly distracting to be able to see the parking lot and giant pole in the reflection (as well as the grate on the ground). The darker colors are good because they make the cosplayer pop out, but perhaps another plain but less reflective place would have been better.

I feel like a lot of your other pieces tell a story, or put forth a strong emotion. Unfortunately, I do not get the same impression from this one. The quality, the cosplay, and the fact that you can easily see the whole costume are all great. However, the photo as a whole just seems somewhat boring to look at. Part of fixing this issue may be having the cosplayer in a more dynamic pose. Getting a different angle rather than just straight on would also significantly improve the composition, I think. Because the cosplayer is not centered within the frame, the photo is still more interesting than just a standard full-body shot. However, I feel that it would have benefitted from a bit more creativity while shooting.

Overall, I still like the picture and I'm glad you were able to capture such a lovely costume!

HI, first of all I love your cosplay! the madoka series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I don't really know why i like it so much but the music and characters are so interesting and well done that its impossible to not liek it.

I like the inlclusion of Kyuey into your cosplay and the background is good as well, pwehaps If you inlcuded a bow or some random effects i would score higher on originality but i like your cosplay.

Overall impact is high because at a quick glance i thought it was a good accurate cosplay and you fit the character well.
