Red Arrows breaking formation

Red Arrows breaking formation by PRC

Perfect timing has made the most of this manoevre from the composition standpoint.

The question is how did he get in?

The composition is nice, with the horizon in just the right place and the clouds well captured. Since you are a Canon user, try correcting the cast in DPP. It offers a very useful colour wheel that gives much scope for correcting odd colour balance problems that cannot be solved simply by adjusting the colour temperature. Its use is a bit hit-and-miss but if the result is not quite right one can always click the cancel button and try again. Click on the "Tune" button in the tool palette to access it.

The bad news, I fear, arises from the 0.8 second exposure. This is purely a personal opinion and a lot of people will disagree with it - I must make that clear. Nevertheless one of my pet hates is the use of long exposures on moving water, so that it ends up looking like something out of a low-budget horror film and not like water at all. I know there is a current fashion for that sort of effect but I think it ruins many an otherwise good picture. If water is moving I like it caught with a fast shutter speed and looking like water does look. Here the blurring of the water is not as extreme as one often sees, but I would still like to see it a lot sharper than this. 1/32 at F/8 and ISO 200 would have done it.

I agree with Nathan. I like the near-monochrome effect caused by the snow in the foreground and the contrast provided by the very bright blue post. I wondered at first if the quirky but charming colour rendering had resulted from some Photoshop cheating but I reckon I was wrong about that. (You have not clicked on the "digitally manipulated" tag and I therefore assume that it isn't.) As for the error - forget it, it does not matter.

Autumn Salmon Fishing

Nice one. I like the way the water is rendered properly and the wonderful sense of scale provided by the tiny figure.

Side Show

Side Show by MrBlueSky

Remarkable capture of the colour contrast produced by sunrise light. This must have required quite precise timing. The result is stunning.

Roof Gone

Great image, but what a tragic subject.

Starling Departure Convention - Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) by Natureale

Very striking image. I have seen them muster on trees and houses but never on a floodlight. Great capture.

P.S. Football floodlights usually come in fours. Were the other three similarly populated?

Makes me wonder what the birds were thinking!

More of the Same

More of the Same by danbrann

This series of images perfectly illustrates my dictum that the beauty of our world is often latent or transient, and the photographer's mission is to make it explicit. Well done.

Stepping..into. by IGreenGables

I'm with those who prefer the colour version, but the monochrome has a great sense of drama about it.

Shots like this can often present exposure problems. You have certainly overcome any such problems here.


Canberra by jasonrwl

Three excellent ground-to-air shots. V2 is particularly good.

Three things I like about these images; the nice lighting, the lovely autumn colours and the way the water looks like water. Well done.

alex on pub run. by gingerninja

I rather feel this one is pulling me in two different directions. The lovely peaceful feel of the tree patterns is suddenly disturbed by the realisation that this is a dramatic action shot, and I don't feel free to enjoy either aspect. I would say first of all take the shot from just this viewpoint but without the cyclist and present that as V1. Then zoom in on the cyclist when he appears and get a pure action shot with all the drama and excitement that that implies. Present that as V2, perhaps. That way the two different feelings would complement each other instead of each detracting from the other as I feel they do here.

The rendering of the spinnaker in this image is just amazing.
