Unfortunatley not a great shot ... or at least it doesnt appear to be so at this low res. The issue is primarily the vignette which adds nothing and actually distracts. The idea and this type of image works really well when its done well but this one jsut doesnt feel spot on.
This is a bit of a trciky one to critique in some ways as I actually quite like it ... love the poses of the kids, and the overall shot in many ways but whilst I can see what you were aiming for ... I feel the yellow acid face just fights a touch too much for attention.
Great idea and concept .. love the camera angle but the shape in the foreground is just too bright. For this type of shot to be truly effective it really needs to retain the detail in there ... in all honesty I'd bin this one and go back out there and re-do it. I apprecia\te it can be tricky with the exopsures here but keeping the 9 minutes in similar light and running with a bit less flash and torch work would do the trick. Would be nice to use some ground markings to keep some additional seperation between the strands of light too .. making it a bit more uniform.
Well a lot of praise for this one Paul .. unfortunately for me it's not great. Nowhere near your usual high standard. I was expecting a lot from the thumbnail it has to be said but overall it feels very flat.

Good to see you back on the site ... !!

Just spent a very enjoyable 20 minutes browsing the images on your website. Some really good work on there and a pleasure to view ... agree that its quite hard to place your work into a genre and thats probably the reason I like it so much ...
Shame you dont post some of your more thought provoking work on here too though.

One of the best landscape photographers on the site in terms of technique and processing. I always enjoy viewing your work which is inevitably very beautiful. Always pleased to see your willingness to experiment compositionally too.

A huge improvement since you first apeared on EPZ. Some nice work in here, with a variety of very easy on the eye landscapes. Just enjoyed browsing for a while.

A commentless portfolio .. not a good thing!! So here goes ... some interesting and diverse ideas in here .. let down slightly by technique rather than creativity. Some interesting concepts that with a bit of development would prove fruitful!!! A very strong foundation on which to build your photographic skill ... Dan

A nice in some of your shots .. some are a little over processed for me but you have a bit of talent which with some training on processing could result in some really nice work. Dan
