Sleeping beauty by drjskatre

Sleeping beauty

This is a lovely shot, but it is a bit flat. I have uploaded a mod so I hope you like it. I concentrated on lifting the contrast and the colours without making them look unreal. Your camera has tried to even out the exposure, so the cat is a little underexposed. When I lifted that the background went a bit paler, but didn't blow out.

Nice one Dougie. I got some decent shots on the Ben a couple of weeks ago. It's good to see you're out and about.

A lovely shot Jeanie, but I might take out that bit of clutter on the left hand side.

Wasdale Sunset

Amazing. My daughter and I got out yesterday during the day and we could see it was a special sunset, but we couldn't get out to capture it. Sad

Another fine shot Ron. You are so fortunate to have seen such a famous pride and to get such wonderful shot.

A lovely image, but I would clone out the light on the left edge of the frame. It is a distraction.

Lovely light Ron. That is one of the great parts of a safari, just sitting watching the animals as they go about their lives.

This is well done hand held. Perhaps 1600 ISO would have helped.

Candle Maker.

Very atmospheric Ron. I volunteered at Blists Hill in the late 80s and early 90s in the carpenters shop. Great fun. Haven't been back since left Shropshire. Well done on getting 7 shots in the Wrekin Salon. Wrekin Arts was my old club.

Abbeye de Senanque in Early Summer...a hint of things to come

Lovely, in high summer when I've been I just got there at 7.00am. It was an hour from our campsite so I had to sneak out Grin Worth it for the sight, the small and the sound of the bees!

The Museum by joycetalks

The Museum

There's a lot to like about this. you have exposed well, but there a couple of areas where I think you could lift it. First the processing has left it little flat. Our cameras are designed to capture everything in a scene and the result is a flattening of the contrast. Have a look at your histogram in your processing software. My guess is that there's a flat part of the histogram at each end. In "Levels" if you pull the little triangles at each end of the histogram until they just meet the start and end of the histogram you'll find that the image comes to life.
Compositionally, the well in the centre is a lovely echo of the whole building and accentuates your framing. However, th lighthouse mechanism bottom right blocks my way into the space. Maybe another shot from the level about would fix that.
All the best,
Alan

Fabulous graffiti. I always look out for it when I go to new places. I think it says so much about a place.

Lovely graphics Ron. I thought it might have been something like Jodrell Bank, until I opened it. Then, I immediately knew it was from your trip to the Reichstag.

I am Charlie by stu8fish

I am Charlie

Je suis CHARLIE. If you get a chance look on the BBC news website. They have an amazing compilation of the cartoonists response to yesterday's outrage. The pen is mightier than the sword unless of course some twisted idiot shoots you.

White Peaks by donalmccullaugh

White Peaks

At first glance this is a fine shot, but then I started to wonder what we were meant to focus on. The problem is the foreground wall because it gets in the way of the picture. I strong foreground is important in landscape, but a vertical wall arrests the viewers eye. The hill behind is indistinguishable from the top of the wall and there is definitely an image waiting to get out. I would love to see the landscape beyond the wall. I think that you could use the top of the wall as a foreground, but it would have to be from above so that the viewer can see beyond it. Have a look at some Joe Cornish shots where he uses a rock in the foreground to create an anchor for the viewer to look beyond. Sorry if this sounds negative, but I'd love to see some others you took at the same time, where we can see beyond the wall.
Have a look at this shot Lochan. I illustrates what I mentioned before. There's a strong foreground rock with snow and ice with line leading your eye into he picture.
Cheers,
Alan

I like it, but the colour is a bit orange for me. It's also a shame you've just cut off the finial on the tip of the roof.

Beautiful colours Richard. I think the foreground water movement provides a lovely reflection of the movement
of the clouds.
