Firstly nothing broken about the Zenith it took the picture just fine but Pablo's comments are correct and he has given a good explanation of things to do in the future to give your shot some life.
Firstly welcome to EPZ, this is a nice sunset image however I bet its colours are mot quite what you saw when you took the image. This is common for sunsets and I notice you used a manual WB setting. I was told many moons ago that if you use the cloudy setting on the camera it lifts the yellows / oranges etc and gives a more intense image with the colours closer to what you see.
I have to agree with the other members more detail about the image helps with the critique. As Geoff says your focus is on the wheel and this has caused a soft focus for the drive link I think images like this need to have a uniform focus and while I like the sepia tone in this instance I thinkk the B+W image gives a better contrast and draws the viewer to the shape and structure of the image.
I like this Steve, I find the parallax of the side buildings leads the eye into the cathedral. Most people would have chosen the portrait view but using landscape for me gives the image a further dimension placing the cathedral into the distance. I think if you wished you could increase the highlights on the cathedral slightly to add a more etherial effect.
You have for me a really good tone range on this image the whites have a brilliance to them and the blacks are true black. I may have not taken this particular image as I like to show wheels as the symmetrical objects they are but that is a matter of taste. Over all I think this is one of the best B+W's I've seen on EPZ
The watermark aside I think this is a good attempt to portray the scene yiou described. I think some extra space to the nose of the F16 would prevent it looking like its just about to fly off the paper. I also like the contrails from the wing tips so over all possibly a less tight crop to give the impression of free space all round
I think this is an excellent image, I like the stark contrast of the silhouetted tree against the soft gentle greys of the misty background. I think you have achieved just enough contrast in the background to pick out the individual layers which for me adds to the feeling of distance.
I agree with Willie however while pulling the dark end into the histogram strengthens the darks and for me gives more framing to the face I find the highlight marker when pulled into the histogram imo the highlights are too high and loose detail.
Really excellent study and a great way to convey the message of childhood. I've created a MOD which I hope you like, I've cropped the image to 5x4 which is the size of the standard large format photo plates I have also increase the contrast to help bring out the hopscotch markiings.
A nice image of an evening scene, but I find these images need to pop out at you to have the impact you want. In my MOD I've done some reprocessing of your original which seems quite flat colour wise.
Hi Shashank, I can see the idea you have but I think you need to look at the composition. The bird on the left is "The Protector" and this image would work better with this bird positioned to the right so it appears to be looking into the image. Unfortunately many of the birds are not best placed to be seen easily so as part of your composition think of how the viewer will see the subjects and adjust the composition accordingly. With digital cameras its easy to take many images and review to make adjustments as you take the pictures.
This is a really nice image and I like the processing you have applied to give an aged look to the image, however my constantly is drawn to the overexposed background. For me this needs some detail to tone it down and allow the eye to stay with the subject. If your original has detail in this area I would look to reprocessing to keep something in this area, possibly with blur to make it indistinct.
I love these type on images as they give real close views of detail however a must is making sure the lines are horizontal or vertical as required. In your image the main mast has a slight tilt to the right which I have corrected in my MOD.
