Corralejo Sunset

Corralejo Sunset by DicksPics

Very nice, I like aerial perspective images.

Nice one Nathan.
All the best for Julie with her jump.

Informative set of images.

Shot At Dawn

Shot At Dawn by glenalva

The image is stronger in mono. There are bold graphic lines and shapes, and a dramatic sky backdrop which all help of course. But without the colour, the viewer looks harder and thus sees more.

Very well captured.

Scurdie Ness Lighthouse, Montrose

Scurdie Ness Lighthouse, Montrose by billmyl

The bright area at the bottom of the lighthouse and across part of the horizon to the right of it was what first caught my eye. This shouldn't be the case, as it draws attention from the rest of the scene.

Cropping aside, this is well positioned and composed.
The forground you have here is sufficient, providing enough depth to the image and some context. I like the dominance of the lighthouse in this image.
Making more of the water in the foreground as an alternative approach if there were more colour/cloud/texture in the sky as the reflection would double the appeal. Using a portrait format would allow you to make the most of the reflection too.
Either way, a great spot and one to return to under different weather and lighting conditions.



Backbone by Quoise

When I was a kid I remember the quiz show 'Ask the Family' and they had mystery items taken from close up. Couldn't work those out either Grin

Bingley Show Cased by LynneJoyce

I applaud the presentation. You've put in such a lot of work here.
V14 is my favourite, but i do like fruit!
V15 reminds me of a box of tissues - sorry, that's not a criticism, it's what I thought when I first looked at it Grin

Very nice panorama.
This should look great in autumn so you can try your 17-40 then Smile

Dahlia at Powis Castle

Dahlia at Powis Castle by DicksPics

Nicely shot, and a good specimen too, you don't always get decent ones so it's just as well we've had decent weather.

Super set of images.


Nested by Rousseau

If you mean shafts of light streaming in between the pillars, if you saw them you should be able to capture them. However the overal level of light looks too high for such shafts to be visible. It's easy to imagine them when it's only differences in light and shade of the building.
Shafts of light show up best when there is something in the air to scatter the light - think dust, smoke, moisture, etc. Doesn't look like there's any of those here.
Have you done any other post processing. Shade white balance wouldn't create this strong a colour cast.
The stone and paintwork must have been quite yellow/brown to start with. Yes under the arches is in shade but there are areas lit by sunlight, so Daylight white balance would be best. At least you made a decision, not relying on the camera.
It doesn't matter, this is an attractive image with the decay and repeating patterns of the pillars. Ideal for mono, but the colour does add a mood, I think of stifling heat.


Open Wide

Open Wide by karkley

There's nothing wrong with your focussing techniqe or reaction times.
Closer and with no clipping of the bird by the fence would be fine in an ideal world. We've all been there trying. But you can't control how and where they'll land.
Nonetheless, Willie has done a great job. If you don't want to crop so much, I'd trim off the right hand side just to put the birds on an image third so they are off centre - always a useful approach.

Thanks for the warning about the queues Smile

Moseley old hall

Moseley old hall by xwang

Not quite IR, but very like a shot taken on black and white film with a deep red filter, which is as close as you can get to IR withoput actually being IR, which is still an effective way of creating an image. This sort of subject suits it well.
