Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! In honor of the day that celebrates love and romance, our next Critique will be centered around the theme of the day. Submit your best love and romance centered images and be critiqued by your peers.

Between now and February 20th, we invite you to submit two of your best images that feature love and romance. It should go without saying, but please keep your submissions classy. We will be selecting 20 submissions to provide feedback to, two of which will be selected to win a free Fstoppers tutorial. The first winner will be chosen based on the highest average community rated image. The second winner will be selected at random. 

Once you've uploaded your images, be sure to scroll through the rest of the submissions to provide honest and helpful feedback to your peers. If you're unfamiliar with rating system, see details below. The easiest way to rate images is to scroll through them using your key and number pad. Feel free to leave encouraging comments when you see an area where an image could be improved.

Hello FStoppers Family! I see a lot of wedding photos in this contest, so I’d love if you guys would comment with some criticism for me to learn from on my image. It’s from my 1st ever paid wedding shoot, so let me know what you think. I hope to be doing weddings regularly by this time next year. Thank you!

So funny that Lee and Patrick both said please don't post nudes, and the very first image that was posted is a nude lol!!!!

Yup, and posted by a female photographer no less. More power to her! :)

I actually didn't pay enough attention to the intro of the video and only heard the no pornography part haha. I think it is not pornographic :) I still hope they'll forgive me for that mistake hihi.

No it is definitely not! I just thought it was really funny how it worked out that it was the first post!!!

Dig the banner shot of the couple in front of the helo. Anyone able to provide a direct link? Thanks!

Edit: nm, google image search came through. Sorry for the noise.

Such a left brain dominant community

Funny, how 50% of submitted pictures got better color grading than pictures submitted to color grading CTC.

Well since others are doing it, I guess I'll start submitting photos that have nothing to do with the critique.
