Loch Ard

Loch Ardvery nice processing and use of filters. the foreground interest adds well. maybe a little more would set the imge off more, but well done for getting this far, G

PS, noticed your apeture was set to around f7, for this kind of shot, id recommed you stop down to about f14 ish to bring the fg aswell as the bg into focus . for advice, pay full atention to your histograms too,

Beach buggy

Beach buggysimpley yet effective, less is more etc, lovely colours, am looking at the tyre tracks, and thinking another idea would be get the car to make tracks around to that location prividing a "lead in" ? G

Gemmacat fun

Gemmacat funA brave and unusal view point for a portrait , although has been seen before. A few suggestions, make sure the BG/floor is clean (ie the stain on the floor to the RHS, maybe a little more light to the face as looks a little dark, finally (and this is only my thoughts) with the angle and the focal length you used (looks like 17mm) the wiast looks a little too thin, (possibly the angle shes standing), its a good attempt and if you persevere with it, should come up trumps, G

White All White

White All Whitei like the white on whtie and the compostion of the flower, but i think the back ground has been removed with a too sharper edge as it looks a little jagged around some petals, a better way, to leave a more softer edge would be to use the tool you used to cut the background out with a ligh feathering, about 2-3 pixels,

of from this image, you could....
in photoshop,
Use magic wand and pic any of the white area (tolerance about 5 to 10) untill all the bg is selected
under selection menu, select refine edge, increase the feather a few pixels untill you notice a deference, then delete the current white selected background, add a new layer and merge both images, then you should have your feathered flower image, G

my wife

my wifeits a brave attempt but are quite a few things worng,
the shot was taken at an angle as the stool legs are slanted. the model looks a bit fed up and unenthusiatic, and is more slouching than posing het feet have been cut off, with these shots its best to have the whole leg in, or cut off just below the knee. not keen on the "hazyness" as its distracts away form what were supposed to be looking at, sorry, this might not be what you want to hear but you have asked for critique, G

Craig Jeffrey

Craig Jeffreygood depth of field and colour, the only thing id say is that the image would benefit more with a bit more room in the bottom left corner to get the subject out of the centre, or a slight crop off top and rhs, also i think that rotating the guitar (i think is its a guitar) a little to let us all know what it is thats on his back being as its for a promo, G

Bold...

Bold...i like the colours, nice and vibrant, unfortunately its the only thing i like about it, had a look at your supplied stats,and your shutter speed is at 1/5 sec... thats way too slow for this kind of image capture especially if you`re shooting at 400mm . your iso is set to 100, id recommend upping it to 400/800 as this would free up your shutter speed to allow you to take a sharper image, with your focussing, not sure what was the focal point as the grass infront looks sharper than the squirrel itself, if your in one place then you could focus on the squirrel, then switch to manual focus as its already focussed where you want it, hope this info is of some use to you , we all have to start somewhere, and we all have done it, G

Band Promo Shoot 1

Band Promo Shoot 1nice idea with the staggered subjects, overall the image is a little dark and a bit of a crop off the top would help, i think the image would work more had the front guy(i take it he is the lead man) take a few steps forwad so hes more prominent in the picture and the guy in the hat moves a step or two forward just to give a bit more 3d to the image, G

First Macro

First Macroa good attempt as macro, you have composed it well in the frame and althought it does look a little dark, and there is a magenta/reddish tinge to it, whuch can be adjusted in white balance settings, a thinner more simpler border would benifit the image more, as your eyes tend to head towards the frame instead of the main image,

heres what i do ... have the image infront of you , close your eyes for a few seconds, then open your eyes and whatever attracts your attention first should be the main subject, hope this helps and you have fun with the rest of your macro experiences, G

Rope Swing

Rope Swinga nicely put together image, well layered, the colour of her top works well too, i think maybe it could have done without the last one where theres only half of her, and might have been more effective if the opacity of the layers were adjusted as she moved from left to right. G

Little Owl

Little Owlgreat shot, better than the prev one and that was nice too, not that fussed about the out of focus bit or the "dark part" at the top as my attention is drawn to the eyes, framings good, how did you do it in the end?? the only things id say would be the left hand side looks a little bare, so maybe a crop to reduce the empty space and in your settings , would look better with a darker epz frame as oposed to the white one in your upload settings, you can change that after you uploaded, ive done it a few times, other than that . nice colours and good contrast and sharpness. heres your RC , G

Summer Ball

Summer Ballits not a bad portrait... but the model is a bit too close to the wall making a shaddow on the RHS of her, also would be more flattering to her if she was stood a little more towards the camera which would show off her figure more and reduce the 2 dimentional look, G

Black Magic

Black Magicthese lillies go well with this colour, and the BG texture is good too, maybe you could have used a reflector to aim some much needed light to the grenery underneath, i prefer version 1 as the focus point is out in v2, G
