Sunset in Somerset by Fogey

Sunset in Somerset

Lovely indeed, it needs to be bigger though.

South Downs view by djh698

South Downs view

Great view. Judging by the sky and shadows this feels as if it should be about 0.5ev brighter and slightly more saturated. Is there any reason you kept it like this?

Panther Rock by prin

Panther Rock

I like your composition and can see what effect you were after. There is a sharpening halo around the panther rock and there is a lot of grain in photo (not sure if that is deliberate). I think the image becomes stronger if you crop out the sky.

St. Aiden by Morgs

St. Aiden

Good textures and perspective. Possibly cropped a little tight and there is a processing halo around the chimney, but definitely makes me want to light a fire and grab a mug of hot chocolate. Smile

No distracting yellow signs this time Nathan. Smile

Green and Yellow by suigo

Green and Yellow

Nice contrast of light and shade. I think it would be worth playing with different crops as I'm not convinced this one is making the most of the image. Maybe try cropping the bottom to just above the last bud and possibly lose some of the empty space from the left too?

daffodils in black and white by gaborfoto

daffodils in black and white

I'm not sure what story you wanted to tell with this but for me it doesn't say anything. The composition is a little awkward, with the daffodil directing the eyes out of frame and nothing to drag them back and the overall image seems not to be sure whether it wants to be minimal or not.

In my opinion a letterbox crop works a little better, giving more emphasis to the daffodil and making it feel almost as if it is hanging its head in shame.

Flying Low

Well captured. I'm intrigued by the shape of the shadow, almost looks like there is no head.

Good composition and colours in this but the HDR processing is letting it down. There are halos between light and dark areas and I think the micro-contrast is a little low, leading to a loss of texture in the brickwork.

Well worth having a play with the settings.

The over the top processing really suits this, nicely done.

I think the mod is different but not better. I like the pastel dreaminess of the original.

Lunchtime Robin by NDODS

Lunchtime Robin

I like the tones in this. Unfortunately the focus point has landed on the closest feathers rather than the eye, which would have been the perfect point. I know how difficult it is to photograph birds though so well done on this.

Let there be light. by WesternRed

Let there be light.

Nicely composed image. I think your processing has left it just slightly on the harsh side, it may just need a tweak of the light smoothing or the contrast.

I really like the minimalist nature of this, matches the title nicely.

Jane Austen's Writing Table by conrad

Jane Austen's Writing Table

I like the perspective a lot and you have caught some great textures in there. Just shows a decent photographer doesn't always need their £000's of kit to produce good results. Smile

Thanks folks. I don't think it was just the water, it was a combination of that, sun and birdsong, plus getting my camera going.

Erranad boy's bicycle by Gillygems

Erranad boy's bicycle

Hi Gilly. I take it this is your first go with Photomatix after your recent thread. Is this the look you intended to create or is it how it turned out? I only ask because it shows most of the signs of being over tone-mapped. There are halos around the junctions between light and dark, indicating possibly too little light smoothing. There is a harshness, which could be down to too much micro-contrast, whilst overall there is a lack of contrast, possibly due to black and white points being set wrong.

The image itself is decent enough but the result doesn't work for me. Well worth playing around with the sliders to see what you think works and what doesn't. If you really want to explore HDR I would highly recommend that you take a set of photographs specifically meant to be processed in that way, under, on and over exposed so that between them you get the whole dynamic range. Take a look at my recent photo of my car for an example of how (I believe) an HDR should look.

It may take you a fair amount of time to get to grips with the various adjustments but it is definitely time well spent.

Have fun

Hen Cloud by Kenfromsot

Hen Cloud

Like the lead in. I've not been up there for a few years now, one of my favourite areas though.

I'm not totally convinced by the bright grass bottom left, I think it distracts from the main composition.

Nicely caught and I love the textures in the wall. The combination with those and the cat suggest all sorts of stories.

Wave Around by pmorgan

Wave Around

Wonderful shot Paul. To be picky for a moment (and this may just be personal taste), I think the top may be a little 'over-gradded'. When I cut out about 1/3 of the sky it lightens it a touch and takes less attention away from the rock and swirls.
