You've started critiquing your own image well, and it's always good if you can identify areas for improvement yourself.
And welcome from me too.
I too was thinking of cropping the foreground. Even with a crop there is enough there to put over what you intend especially in your second version. Talking of which, a lower angle would still allow you to get all that paved area in frame but would reduce the area of the frame it occupies and so help the image balance.
So much better. Certainly in terms of toning, contrast and the frqamed picture. The pose of the two models definitely has more attitude. Albeit with Willie's proviso.
Welcome from me too.
I have to agree with all that John has said.
You're not on your own Paul. While some prints would have faded (as a result of poor processing and/or storage) many would still be of high quality. Even grain could have been fine, though its prominence would depend on film stock and format, so I don't have any objection to adding it here. A contrasty shot, yes that would be good.
Willie's mod has addressed the main issue for me, and that is that the eyes are too dark. There is detail there, as the mod demonstrates.
I've not tried one of these cheap (in relative terms) Chinese lenses, but from reviews and pictures I've seen they're competent enough. And if you're only wanting to use them on a few occasions, why spend more.
The boat has an attractive shape. I like the idea of your framing ussing those posts though they are large elements in the frame and quite dominant.
Yes this is better. It's good to see you did experiment with different viewpoints and focal lengths at the time, something not always appreciated when we see the first upload.

Just had a scan through your portfolio, some really nice images there. I see there are some big gaps between posting, but hey, quality rather than quantity eh!

You've a really stunning landscape portfolio here. I thought I'd comment here rather than individual images. I really enjoyed looking.

Yo've got a great portfolio here, some lovely bird images. I can even forgive the fact that the squirrels are grey ones as the images are good lol!
