Long Tailed Tit

Long Tailed TitExcellent capture Harvey. Incidentally, the 5.6 you mentioned is more about depth of field rather than sharpness. So long as you focus on the bird the rest of the shot will either be in focus or out of focus, 5.6 will have short dof and f16/f22 will have more in focus. The higher the F number the greater dof.
I hope this helps.

Lyveden New Bield IMG_6208

Lyveden New Bield IMG_6208I have done a bit more cropping and a slight adjustment hue/saturation and that is all. I wasn't sure which was going to be the focal point as there are two, the house and the tree, they both call for attention. Still, have a look and see what you think.

all the fun of the fair

all the fun of the fairI think that this is one of those shots which rely on timing. Had you take this shot 1 second earlier you might have had all face on it. I am a big believer in cropping when ever you can. Having said that I do like the composition you can tell that at least one of them is having fun. I think I would perhaps add a little saturation just to bring the colours out a bit more.
I hope that this has helped you at all.

Goldfinch

GoldfinchCracking shot William. If you go round it with the lasso tool and invert it you can add a little unsharp mask to it which will make it just a little bit clearer.

Eibsee Lake, Garmish Germany

Eibsee Lake, Garmish GermanyNice shot.
I think that if I was taking this shot I would have added an 4x ND filter which will put you down about 1/2 a stop. This will increase the tonal range. I would also crop the bottom of the shot up to the tree line. As you are using 2/3 I think the shot is fine just a little tweek here and there.
I hope this helps you.

Direction

DirectionI am not quite sure what you are trying to achieve here, at the moment the stalks take pride of place in the shot. I would be very tempted to cut the stalks in half and use them as an anchor point for the rest of the shot. Lighten the mid tones especially in the dark part across the middle of the shot. After that try and increase the saturation a little, if you don't like it you can always go back.
I hope this helps you.

Water Front

Water FrontI'm not sure what I would do with this, perhaps darken the clouds alittle bit to add contrast and add a moon in the top right and bottom right corners. This will give greater contrast if the moon is shinning towards the buildings. Maybe crop the bottom of the photo to make both top and bottom equal sizes. Finally just increase the red just slightly enough to make the buildings stand out a bit more.

Grazing by the Humber

Grazing by the HumberNice shot William, but I think that I would have cropped the shot down to the bridge uprights as there is an awful lot of sky which is dominating the photo.
If you were to crop down to the first cross piece, the one above the bridge the horse then becomes the focal point of the photo.
Once you have done that just lighten the background slightly and add a bit more contrast.
Overall a good photo, keep up the good work William.
