Dead of night

Dead of night by banehawi

I personally prefer the colour version.


Niamh by banehawi

Good one

The Shard

The Shard by RobinH

Good capture, well handled. In addition to Willie's suggestions I have done a mod.
I had done a portrait crop as I feel that format might have been more appropriate to add to the impression of height.
Just a thought, see what others thinks,

Smiley Nature.

Smiley Nature. by nishant101

My view is that this is a pleasant enough image.
Given better lighting and a more interesting sky there is the potential for a goodish picture here.
I think the colours are fine.
I find it more interesting complete with the magenta tint.
Rocks in the foreground often add drama and interest to a landscape image. These don't for me as there are too few, the lighting is flat and the rocks themselves are not interesting shapes.
I don't see the potential for this to become a stunning image. Moria's mods improve it a bit but you really need to start with better light/sky.
The mountains and distant shore are just to far away from the near shore .
The reflections on the water are the best part for me but most of the water is uninteresting..
I'm With Willie and Paul here and give this photo 3/10.

Wild Strawberry

Wild Strawberry by Metchick10

I like the idea of leaving just the strawberry in colour. Good processing
One point I would like to make is that because the strawberry is a small part of the image what is left is a rather dull grey background.
I think the image would be improved by the strawberry being much larger.
Some people may prefer to have it positioned more away from the middle of the frame.
You could crop this image, otherwise get in closer next time.

Fine level of detail, lovely


Soft by paulbroad

Hi Paul
One of your old one of that lovely = young (then) lady.
Super image, guess the diffusing could be done in PS now, but great effect.

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.

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.
