A familiar London landmark to those who have ventured this far South, which I captured in my pioneering days of Digital Photography.

Thank you for all your very open and honest comments and critiques following yesterdays upload. It is not until you ask for such critique that you realise the real standard of your work.

The sun is shining I am rather well so who knows what the day will being.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Regards as always Nathan

At first look the cranes reminded me of music notes, it makes for a very interesting image.

Not knowing London at all well, I cannot identify this spire but from the number and size of these cranes, it soon to be dwarfed by many much taller structures.
All the verticals sit comfortably together here.
Glad you are feeling well........me too but whilst you have sun, we have drizzle.

Good processing Nathan. Loved the comments from you yesterday. Lovely Mono's here. I thought it was from Spider man then I realized I couldn't see him. If I had to just make a little suggestion ( don't you dare critique my plane either) It looks like you graduated the sky , but I don't think that it added to your image, that's just an observation Nathan. So happy your feeling better now go and take some photographs and enjoy the day, Regards John.

Hi Nathan,

"Critique Wanted" i prefer v2 as its like a window to the growing world.

V1 leaves my eye roaming for a point to settle on, its a little dark and the top of the spire seem lost.

Best Wishes
Stuart

At a guess the BBC building in the BG Nathan, to be honest I'm not quite clear in my own head what you were trying to do.

I thought at the thumb level it was a reflection in a puddle.

Not a critique Nathan more some questions, sorry.

Some good strong lines on both of these images Nathan,I like the content.
Both just seem a tad under exposed though & lacking a touch of contrast which has rendered them generally quite grey,I reckon a good ole tweak of the levels & contrast would really help these two.
Some good mods for you to consider too.

Prefer vw, but your mono conversion is very heavy and grey with even heavier tones towards the top. Something not quite right. Might be under exposure in the first place or might be the conversion. You did use the channel mixer i hope. Almost looks like an ND grad was used, but then under exposed?

Looks like this has a lot of historical interest for members!


It can be a sort of 1984 moody, futuristic image, or perhaps the terrific Brazil. I like Fefes mod, - shes gettinging into that end of times look.


Original looks like you used a grad, and the exposure can be evened out for a more boring mod.


Im sure nonur means "old feel"!
