Tunisian boat

Tunisian boatI do like this kind of shot, and this is a good spot. There's some nice pattern and symmetry, and good textures. (I would be tempted to not bother cloning the blemishes out for that reason - but that's just me Smile)

My main thought as far as improvement is concerned is that you have lots of different shades of blue, which aren't quite different enough, for me. I think you also need to make the red 'ping' a bit more (for want of a better technical term. Just a tweak in levels and a curves adjustment should do it (see my modification). I think it darkens the sky enough to give you a bit more contrast.

I've also cropped in a bit to give the diagonal lines a bit more emphasis.

Hope you don't mind the suggestions - just my opinion, of course.

Marrakech

MarrakechRob - the light and shadow in this work really well. It has a definite 'back streets' atmosphere. You've done well with difficult exposure (I think the cobbles are a little 'blown' in places - but this doesn't particularly detract from the image for me). I find the bike (?) in the bottom right a bit distracting, and the figure in the street is a bit distant - and I think might help if he was a bit more prominent. I've uploaded a crop - see what you think. Only my subjective thoughts - obviously - to be taken or left as you see fit Smile

How Stean Gorge

How Stean GorgeEd - the large version of this is a must, and I can guess that printed large it will be even more impressive. I can't comment on the technical side of the capture (except that it sounds like a hell of a lot of hard work!). I love the way it's turned out, though - the colour and light are sumptuous - really lush and cool feel to it. The range of colours in browns and greens really work well. My only difficulty with it is my eyes struggle to find a point to rest on - but I don't know if that's necessarily a bad thing with a large pano image? From your descriptioni, may be you wnated the viewer to follow the water form the pool on the right to the rocks on the left? There's just so much going on - but I really think this can't be judged on a normal sized monitor. Congrats on the result, though Smile

Pool of Light

Pool of LightThis has a really good mood to it - the sweeping sky is fantastic -gives real movement to the shot. Like the balance from the opposite positioning of the reeds and the trees. I just wonder if a slight crop on the RHS to take out that intruding half tree might help. Just tried it with my broswer and it gives a more expansive feel to it, I think. Just a suggestion Smile

A dash of colour

A dash of colourWorks well - nice colours. Perhaps offseting the centre poll might work well too?
