In one of my essay which was about describing a picture, I've written a sentence about the illustration and said:

"This photo has been took during the prohibition"

But my brother has told me this sentence isn't correct. Because he was short in time I didn't received any other explications. I'm sure it's the tense that cause the disorder but actually i don't have any idea about how to correct this error.

Are these a correct form of tense that could be use in this sentence ?

This photo was made

This photo has been took

1

This photo was made is grammatically correct, but a photo is usually described as shot or taken.

Best:

This photo was taken

Acceptable:

This photo was made

Incorrect:

This photo has been took

You'd use took when describing the action of the person with the camera:

She took the photo

  • Your explication has occurred me that my mistake came from direct translation from my native language (French) to English. We usually say > She has took a photo. For next time I am going to be more attentive and avoid this kind of error. – jr28 Oct 16 '15 at 22:25
