Martin Howard jotted down the following:

I'll even provide an example.

M's picture of the Dino Ribs:

The image has potential, but could (IMHO -- read this from now on) be
improved.  The tonal balance is off: the right hand side needs to be
lighter.  If these indeed are bones, then they are a murky grey at the
moment: the bones needs to be an even sparkling white.

Also, there appears to be detail in the top right hand side and the bottom
right hand side, but this cannot be seen clearly.  Less exposure would have
brought this out and balanced the picture.

On the other hand, the composition is interesting...

[etc., etc., etc.]
