Clouds over the pass

Clouds over the pass by jerryiron

I love it too but it looks unreal to me, looks like lots of orange has been added.
However I was not there and the result speaks for it's self…good one
Volcano springs to mind too.



"Sonia" by Jayar31

Good one. Gives the impression of a flash photo taken out doors at night.
There are a few bright areas on her face which could be tone down, maybe.
The white line is a bit confusing but may add to the image.


York Shambles

York Shambles by xwang

An interesting photo. An attractive scene.
There is colour noise in the foreground but this must have been introduced during your processing. 500 ISO is low for your camera and should not have produced noticeable noise.
Really the shadows are too dark in my view. Some are lost or hidden. You have to consider just how dark it was in the street at the time .Yes it was well shaded from sunlight but all shadows would have been visible to the eye.
Had the image been captured in RAW and Adobe RAW used to process the image both the shadows and highlights would have been recoverable. HDR tends to look unnatural and often does leave artifacts.
Whether to use HDR or not really depends on how you want your images to look, the final choice is down to the photographer.
My mod lightens the shadows.



Hope! by paulbroad

NIce sharp image with good colour. Composition and point of interest well placed. Interesting action shot to a certain extent but not your best in my view.

Interesting, Torquay looks expensive thinking of wages in 1934.

Moira says

Quote: Multiple focusing points should be banned! A lot of people think they will give everything in focus - optics don't work like that, multiple points simply give a messy compromise with nothing really sharp.

How true.
A big problem being the likes of Nikon and Canon marketing departments who spend vast amounts promoting auto focus systems that whilst are clever can not think.

HOME- in dedication to a good friend of mine.

HOME- in dedication to a good friend of mine. by olamii97

There have been many photographs over the years which have graphically shown the plight of distressed people.
People devastated by famine, disease and war, often in Africa. These photographs serve to bring these problems to the attention of the world.
Steve McCurry, photojournalist springs to mind.
I would suggest that if you feel a need to highlight the problems of Africa you really need to consider just how any photograph you present will be seen by the viewers.
Many western viewers will see the image above as unconnected to either ebola or African's problems. Some will even find the dress and garb of the two women a touch threatening as covered faces are secretive to western society.
Again think about the point you want to make and go out to photograph with that in mind.
You must remember this is a photographic website not a political forum.

kind regards


Dijana by MyOwnWonderland

The composition and subject are excellent in my view. Looks retro.
An unusual photo and a change from many we see on this site.
TanyaH makes some good observations although the wrinkles on her arm look perfectly normal to me.
I've also done a mod cleaning up but also sharpening a little. I was not sure at first if the screen was sharper than the face but her eyes look better in my mod. I also ran the dodge tool over her eyes to lighten slightly.
Really good image,

No Sales!

No Sales! by paulbroad

Interesting Paul.
I see this as the faceless person vending a load of dodgy cosmetics.
Others may have a different interpretation.
To follow my line the person may be better totally black and the stall brighter, maybe thats why you dodged?


Ice cream man

Ice cream man by devlin

An interesting capture, the vendor is in a good position in the frame. Lots to look at too.
Not too sure your exposure and processing was spot on. Looks a bit over exposed to me. The histogram in photoshop shows over exposure, i.e. a lot peaks pushed to the right hand end. You would have been able to see this in camera if you activate histogram feature.
You added 2/3rds compensation which would not have helped.
I've done a mod where I increased all over contrast, mid tone contrast even more and sharped a little.

Still a good one,

I really like this picture. Interested to see such lovely result from Topaz, you must have worked hard at it, most I've seen are not too good,
Happy New Year

What a beautiful collection of images. Your eye for composition for me is spot on. You do not try to over use colour to gain attention in an image.
I would liken your portfolio to images that might be found in the up market gallery whilst many posted elsewhere seem to aim for the type of image painted by the pavement artist at Brixham, garish, cheap but popular.
in my view your have created art work.
