Calm afternoon

Calm afternoonA nice tranquil image Effrossini but I would have liked you to take a step to the right f that was possible in order to have the man separated from the pole.

Murlough Bay

Murlough BayPerhaps a little more sharpness may have been a better choice. However having said that you are going to get a lots of comments telling me how wrong I am.

Buachaille Etive Mor

Buachaille Etive MorYes most people including me like the colour of v3 best but what you are really after is comment on your mono. I think this is fine and any club judge would have difficulty in finding fault with it however we don't know what else is in the competition so we cannot guarantee the result. The small area I would look to improve on is the high light area in the water. I know that is what water looks like but it just takes my attention perhaps slightly too much.

If it were mine Phil I would have no hesitation in entering it on the other hand if I had to choose between colour and mono I would go for colour.
In our club if we enter a black and white image we are not allowed at any time to enter the colour version.
good luck.
PS....If you don't want to use it can I borrow it.

MeJames a super attempt. In addition to what has already been suggested I would add that you should ensure that the eyes of the model are in the upper third of the picture space and watch the background and you have part of a distracting dado rail however I like the image sufficiently well to give it a vote.

Coniston water

Coniston water
Quote: Maybe timing Nick, never post when the WCC are having their meeting? Thanks for the comments all, it is a disappointing response. If anyone has viewd it and hated it, it would be great to know why so I don't keep doing the same mistake


John in all honesty I think it needed something on the water. That are covers about a third of the image but it is uninteresting water as it stands. Even cropping the sky helps as I am not sure that the three equal bands work.
Sorry John for being so negative and sticking my neck out but you did ask and its just my view.

Burbage Brook

Burbage BrookA super image Brian but it is really difficult to control the whites fom going over the top. I think they are just burning out on the Rh side. I do find that with this type of shot I like to expose for the highlights but it ain't easy.

For u mummy..

For u mummy..An excellent image with superb toning.
You say you took it in black and white but It is much better to do it in colour then convert to black and white. You can then control the tonal range much better. There are some good tutorials on this site to help us.

Ruby Cassidy

Ruby CassidyYes version 1.She looks much prettier in v1.....V2 gives her very uncomplimentary lines under the eyes and probably is more suited to a masculine face.It also degrades the whites therby taking the softness and beauty out of her clothes. Version 1 however is great
and shows Ruby to be the pretty girl that she is.

New Bridge, Parndon

New Bridge, Parndoni think the overdevelopment has given it some bite and you have detail throughout those shadow areas. Good one Mick.

Close Fall

Close FallAde there are toomany things up for discussion and all of the images have their own qualities.
At a quick glance I prefer the waterfall I also prefer the waterfall inits cropped state. The white highlights of the sky in the previous water fall has nowt to do with EPz it is a purely visual thing and if you have the lightest element on an edge of frame it will lead your eye there.
I prefer v3 to v2 but i.m positive the answer lies somewhere in between V2 and V3.
I would imgine v1 is a much easier image to process and generally is without complications and at my time of life I prefer uncomplicated.
I'm sure my views would change if I was look at three 20x16 prints rather than a monitor.
Now then go and do some work and don't ask so many bloody questions. This has taken 20 minutes out of my life and I havn't even put the shopping away yet.

MovementMaybe the shutter speed is a tad low on a couple of them but you did say you were experimenting and I think they are just about there. it's a question of getting one exactly as you want it then using that shutter speed all the time unless of course some people walk quicker than others ...in which case you are up the creek and back to square one.
