Early bird

Early birdHave to disagree with the above, sorry. I looks like the Kestrel has been cut and pasted into a dramatic background. Plus the lightening doesnt work. The bird is being lit from the front where as the sky shows light source from the bottom right of the frame.

In all honesty, I would like to have seen the Kestrel on its own, as it looks like a well taken, sharp shot.

Hope this helps. Please dont be offended!

Blur...

Blur...What are the EXIF (shooting) details.

Most of my night shots are usually shot at ISO 100, F12, and anwhere between 30s to 2 minutes.

Might be something to consider if you havent already done so.

EDIT: i also dont think tht selective colouring has helped with this. It would have been nice to put the colours and light into context, but turning the buildings and street lighting mono doenst really help with this. You could try and reduce the flare in shots using post processing, but removing colour does spoil the overall composition of the shot.

Hope this helps.

summer view

summer viewYou have captured the colours in this really well but i am not a big fan of the compostion.

There is nothing as a focul point for the image and the trees tend to blend together. you need to add something in the foreground to create an interest as it all seems a little boring. Something like a bench, a bin, lampost, something to add interest.

The shadow from the tree on the right seems to dominate the midground. Although shadows work in some landscapes i believe that this one does not do the image any justice.

I hope this helps decided upon composition for your next shot, and i look forward to seeing more of your work and your progression.
