we must save our bee's by rocky41

we must save our bee's

It's OK, this is a bumblebee and not at risk. It's the honeybees that are affected by varoa, nosema and insecticides. The main problem for bumbles is the change in farming procedures that affects the pollen they can gather.
Good photo.

Urbino morning by camay

Urbino morning

Thanks Dudler for commenting. I'm glad you like it, it looks like I have achieved the feel I wanted.

I haven't put anything into the critique site since 2nd April, I have just been uploading for fun since then.

The file size is limited because as a non e2 member I can't upload large files, I think both the number of pixels and size is limited, though I can't find by how much.

I didn't notice the lack of tonal range, I will work on that. I shoot in RAW with small JPEGs and made this from the JPEG files, it's probably worth working on the RAWs to produce a larger file with greater tonal range.

Urbino is a lovely little town by the way and well worth a visit.

Perhaps crop it a little to remove the distracting sliver of blue at the top?

Portrait of a Young Sculptor II by nonur

Portrait of a Young Sculptor II

In this photo the doorway as a frame does not work as he does not fit inside. It may have been better to place him closer so that you can see more of the doorway. Make sure his head is comfortably under the arch of the doorway, not almost touching it

Try pulling a case up! No room for a car to the hotel!

Pushing off

Thanks Willie, you are right the action does become more prominant. I wonder if I will ever get it right first time!
It was an overcast day, plenty of light but misty which helped with glare and reflection. Tweaked in Lightroom.

Snake

Possibly worth trying with a polarizer on? It works with shiny green leaves.

Moeraki Boulders

Good mods paint man, I shall continue to work on these.

pamelajean, I am always grateful to you especially and the Critique Team in general for the time you give up to help others improve their photography. I may be a slow learner but nonetheless it's appreciated!

Take our photo please. by camay

Take our photo please.

Chen, not sure what you mean by a cam shot, it was taken with a telephoto lens equiv to 200mm, between me and the group was a pool of water and very fragile ground that we couldn't walk on, so there was no way I could get closer. I took a few of different groups from this position but this was the best I thought. I doubt if they were photographers, half the folk walking around had SLRs, the other half were using phones or ipads! They also could have been of any nationality so talking to them could have been difficult.

So you had to take your provisional then!
Really like this.

End of the boat trip by camay

End of the boat trip

After 2 weeks of unbroken sunshine they probably didn't have the trip they planned!

The EM-1 is wonderful, it's taking me a while to find which buttons do what but weight wise after the E-620 the lenses are very light, makes a huge difference.
Very fast to focus.
Manual online only except for a small quick start one, so hard to work through. (I have downloaded it, it's a pdf) Parts of menus similar to the E-620 though which helps.
Size perfect for my fairly small hands and very good grip.
EVF beautiful, it has been great in the very bright sunlight when you couldn't see the back screen.
The touch screen can be a pain, you forget it's on and find you have taken lots of photos of your feet as you walk along!

Cathedral Cove by camay

Cathedral Cove

Thanks for that Willie. It's been non stop sunshine since we arrived - better than the snow at home! I overdid the dropping the contrast bit in Elements, all I have on this laptop and it was done in too bright sunlight too, but I shall work on the RAW when I get it home. Interesting about the sharpening halos, it's straight from camera, so possibly I need to drop the in camera sharpening a bit.

rolling up the masts by landandsea

rolling up the masts

Good photo! Try cropping a little off the top so that the mast is 2/3 of the way up the frame. That enhances the mast and still emphasises the height they are working at.

pebble beach by kevlense

pebble beach

Good attempt, and I like the people, gives it a focal point. But look at your horizon, the sea is at an angle. You should level the horizon. I make the same mistake all the time!

Bled Lake by crookymonsta

Bled Lake

I agree with Dave, if you are including reflections there is no way you can use the 1/3 2/3 rule. But you have used it in your positioning of the castle, well done. If you use PS I might think about putting in a gradient filter over the top of the sky, that darkens the top slightly and stops the eye from disappearing out of the top of the picture. Apart from that, a lovely photo.

MY dinner! by camay

MY dinner!

Thanks for the comments folks. I agree about the plant stalk, it would be too difficult to clone it out because of the way it overlaps the frog's foot. I did clone out a stalk that was coming out of his head! I'll try sharpening it, and see if it helps.

November by camay

November

That's interesting Mike. I've played around with it, changing to a square format alters the prominence of the boathouse markedly. Taking out the willow works quite well. I was hanging over a gate marked "PRIVATE" when I took this shot, I was tempted to go in so as to alter the angles but I wouldn't like someone doing that to me, so I didn't, even though the house was on the other side of the road.

The low sunlight has illuminated the contours of the land really well.

The Round Church by cameraman

The Round Church

It looks a lovely church, but I think I would clone out the no entry sign right in the middle of the image. It draws the eye and spoils the church. Just clone it black.

Love the shadow but don't like the halo around the tree, I immediately knew it was HDR

Ben Lomond on fire by camay

Ben Lomond on fire

Thanks folks, I will work on all you've said. What you didn't pick up on and is a real fault of mine is that the photo is not quite horizontal! I tend not to notice until I've posted which is much too late.

Lazy days of Summer by mlseawell

Lazy days of Summer

Agree about making the foreground lighter. Also you need to straighten the image so that the wind turbines are vertical.

Rowardennan Sunset

It was taken at knee height. I was a metre or so from the edge of the water.

Sunrise in the mist by SKSmiv

Sunrise in the mist

It may just be an optical illusion because of the coastline, but it doesn't look quite straight. I've rotated it just a little in my mod, it looks more level and the trees still look upright.

''On the Fence'' by Bowenite

''On the Fence''

I think, but I'm not sure that it's a juvenile starling. The spots are beginning to develop on the body.

A Quiet Moment by bikerone

A Quiet Moment

I really like this. At first I thought it would have been great if the person had been sitting in the beam of light. Since she's not I think you could lighten the white top and face a little to make them stand out more.
