Had a go at a close up of a strawberry for my first upload.
Nice shot. Simple but effective.
Welcome to ePZ Laura, this is a great start, I can almost taste that! Klicked K.
Welcome to the site, lovely first upload, great colour and love the pink background,
A good first one. Excellent colour, nicely sharp, well lit.
Welcome to EPZ, the best place I've found to learn about photographs.
Welcome - good capture - keep them coming.
Great 1st upload well done and welcome
Welcome, very good first up-load.
The only things I would change are the background has a sight pink cast over it, if you've got Photoshop elements the 'enhance'/'auto colour correction' is very effective at correcting this kind of thing. The only other thing, and I'm being really picky now is that the stem is just a little long and tends to pull your eye out of the picture. All that said it still a very good shot.
Oh please James, don't discourage at someone's first upload. I love this shot - it's crisp, colourful and very effective. Well done, Laura Jayne, keep at it.
Wow, thanks evereyone for the comments, a real encouragement.
So simple, so effective. If it was a poster I would buy it. Click.
Love the colour and simplicity of this shot.
Great 1st image, really striking
I agree that this is an excellent shot - great clour rendition, lighting and in razor sharp focus
I would hate to think my suggestions were taken as discouragement, far from it. I always try to be contructive with any comments made. I thought the whole point of the site was to get the opinions of others.
I like this a very good first image, for the next time try a piece of white card opposite the kight source to bounce some light back this should light the straberry more evenly and reduce the hard shadow.
Welcome to EPz you'll soon be addicted.
Well done Laura and pass me the cream please.
Mouth watering, and the image is pretty darn good too *click*
Lovely first upload Laura, real texture to the fruit, can almost smell strawberries and cream.
(Many thanks for your comment on my gentians, I had not spotted this upload until then. If you comment more on other folks' uploads they will start to look at yours. Thanks again).
James, that is the point of this site, and your comments are rightfully also very constructive! Don't stop! Without out people like you the site would become a pointless exercise in false praise.
By the way, I think this is an excellent shot, I don't personally have a problem with the pink tint, but do think chopping off the brown end of the stem may have improved it slightly. Perhaps You can still do digitally. With a pale background, a border may also inhance the picture for display on this site.
By the way, its true that adding comments will get you clicks, but your picture has done extremely well with out you having to drum up attention, while other members on this page average 50 comments per a gallery up load to get the same number. I think your image is speaking excedingly well for itself!
As your first upload you've now raised our expectations. An Excellent portfolio is now expected!
