Honest we're just playin'

Honest we're just playin'A very well captured shot of these two dogs playing . The exposure is a little on the dark side which a levels adjustment can very quickly rectify. It would probably benefit from a touch of sharpening too. I'm almost certainly telling you how to suck eggs as both are minor issues but they would help to lift the image a little more. Andy

On The Big One

On The Big OneYou have certainly captured the excitement on the faces and I like the diagonal composition. I have done a mod with a levels adjustment to add contrast, then a little sharpening and finally added a different sky. I hope you like it. Andy

Colours and Patterns

Colours and PatternsA very pleasing and colourful abstract. You could change the endlessly colours in Hue and Saturation or by using the Gradient Maps. It is also ideal for playing with the distortion tools.

Have a play you never know what you might come up with. Andy

RED

REDI like the idea here but I agree that the red is too strong. A less bright colour or reduce the opacity a little when painting the colour would, perhaps, work a little better. If you paint the colour onto a clear layer you can erase the colour from any areas where you make a mistake (i.e., the fingers)

I do like the idea though. Andy

Misty Loch Tay

Misty Loch TayA lovely pictorial image. I would be tempted to crop a bit off the bottom to create a letterbox image to balance the picture a little better. It's still very nice. Andy

Paula

PaulaI like this very much. It is a little different from the normal studio portrait.

I would consider extending the canvas on the LH side so that the subject has more space to look into, but I like the picture as it is shown as well. Nice one. Andy

Blue Butterflies Mating

Blue Butterflies MatingYou have captured these butterflies very well but I agree that a closer, portrait shot may have worked even better. I have done a mod that shows what I mean but the image may not be able to cope with such a strong crop. It is always better to fill the frame at taking stage if you can. Andy

Gray Heron

Gray HeronSuperbly captured but I would consider cloning out that duck as I find it a tad distracting. Good shot. Andy

Pole Position

Pole PositionI like the idea behind this and there is strong colour and a good sky but, as you say, the opportunity to move was very limited. If possible I would have moved to the left a little so that the back of the boat was in shot and I would have moved that red sign that is lying on the ground. Andy

Which Way Today?

Which Way Today?I can understand why you wanted to restrict the depth of field but in this particular image I would have preferred to see it sharp throughout I love the shapes in the part of the track that you have selected and the excellent lead in lines. I would be tempted to crop the image just below that box-like structure top right as I feel that the image would be even stronger. Andy

Enchanted V2

Enchanted V2This is a superb poignant image that I like very much. I have done a mod not to improve the picture but to give it a different look. All I have done is to extend the canvas at top and right to give the girl more space to look into. You could extend even more if you wanted to. Andy

sharon2

sharon2This is a nice shot of Sharon but you have taken it with the camera at her face level which means that you are looking down at her and this causes some foreshortening and distortion. For shots like this you need to shoot from a mid point on her body to get good perspective. Andy

Faro

FaroVery good workI like the idea of showing the different stages in the processing. My one minor comment is that it could be even more dramatic. The cliff face in particular is a little bright. Try selecting a large soft brush, set opacity to about 5%, select shadows and run over the whole image a couple of times. This can make the image more contrasty and moody. Andy

AWAKENING

AWAKENINGI like the muted colours in this and it is really sharp. I'm not sure that it needs all that space around it though unless you increase the canvas on the LH side to give it even more space. I feel at the moment that it is a bit in no-man's land regarding the composition. A minor point really and still a very good image. Andy

Edina Gallovits (ROU)

Edina Gallovits (ROU)You have captured this perfectly.The background is rather busy but it would be well worth cloning some of it out as the image is strong enough to warrant it. Andy

Iris

IrisVery well photographed with a nicely diffused background. I don't mind the border but, perhaps, the inner black is too strong for this delicate image and a fine black line would have worked better. Andy

Heron in flight

Heron in flightSuperb capture but a bit too tight in the frame. It would be very easy to increase the canvas size to create more space around the heron. Andy

Emma Lea

Emma LeaI like this a lot. There is very good use of light and shade which make a for a very strong image. If you want to you can get a little more detail into the shadow areas by using the shadows/highlights tool - I know that it works because I downloaded the image and tried it. Good work. Andy

Michael

MichaelThis has worked extremely well The low viewpoint adds drama and setting the figure off centre is perfect. Andy
