Out Of Frame PS

Out Of Frame PSHi Liam
I see that you have been hard at work again I do not want to be too negative but there are a couple of things which could have been slightly different. Karen is right about the helicopter it facing the wrong way . But never mind it all comes with experience. at this moment what I am looking at two separate objects the frame and the helicopter they both need to act as one at this moment they are not doing that.

Now the helicopter I will give you a little tip for you I see that you have tried to add a sense of movement to the rotor blades good I dear but there is a better way of doing it. I take it you're using Photoshop elements ?

1 Use the polygonal lasso tool ( I find this one the best one )
2 make a selection around one of the rotor blades
3 go to Blur and you are look for motion blur you will get on much better effect of this one
4 angle and distance that's up to you and much you want to put in (angle) and (distance)

I am looking forward to seeing a lot more of your out of bounds photos I am going to give you my award well done liam keep them coming

Have a look at this one this is the way I had done something similar

The Obliterated

The ObliteratedI do like this black and white photo but there is one thing your name in the bottom because it's black and white photo and your name is in white it sticks out quite well it may be the way you want it I don't know, what software you are using maybe photoshop and working on the principle that your name is on a separate layer i would drop the opacitcy just a bit so your name doesn't stick out so much but you can still see it. Anyway that's the way I would do it by the end of the day it's your photo and you do what you think best . Great looking photo looked forward to seeing more

Coffee.Everywhere!This is a very interesting photo I give you a little tip I know a little about this type of photography .I don't know what sort camera you have got does it allow you to do manual focusing if it does get yourself a pencil and place the pencil in the middle of the cup focus on the pencil then take your photo and you will find the water / coffee droplets will turn out sharp anyway that's how I do it and it works for me .
