Regrets by Zydeco_Joe

That's a Fiat 'Topolino,' I believe.


LOUDER THAN WORDS by youmightlikethis

I'm with John.
There's not much wrong with these.
The first one could do with a touch more contrast but otherwise, I'd leave it alone.
I've uploaded a mod. in which I've made a very slight adjustment using curves.
Hope this helps.


Will I live?

Will I live? by paulbroad

Hi Paul,
I like it.
An 8x10 crop removes that grey bit on the RHS and with a little tweaking, also takes out the dark area on the LHS.
Just an idea.


Concentration by strokebloke

. . . she's missed a bit.

Sorry, I'll get my coat!


LURE OF THE VESSEL by youmightlikethis

Without reading any of the previous comments; V3 for me, without a doubt.
I'd have to tweak the brightness and contrast, almost certainly using curves and I think that it could stand a little sharpening but otherwise, I'd leave it.
Those of you that know me, will know my views re. central, or otherwise, compositions.
Hope this helps.


Camden Market

Camden Market by Nigwel

It's good isn't it . . . ?

I've never heard of 'miniature/toy' mode!
Upon looking at this, I thought you'd used the 'imitation tilt/shift' process in Photoshop and I was surprised to see that it had worked in a shot taken in that environment.
Just shows how wrong you can be!

Well done.




They take anything, don't they . . . ?

I've got a similar shot of a gull with a KFC box.

It's an "Intertype" or "Linotype" typesetting machine.

Yes, it is.

Since your title carries a question mark, I take it that you're asking!


Georgia by cattyal

Hi Ali,

Like the processing. Not so sure about the composition.


Brighton Pier 3

Brighton Pier 3 by xwang

Hi Jasmine,
The composition's OK, I guess but I can envisage this, having been shot centrally as a portrait.
What you really needed here was a huge wave crashing over the end.
As Nick says, the brightness of the sky's caused the groyne etc. to be underexposed. You can claw some of it back using the shadows/highlights tool but it still looks a bit dismal.
I hadn't thought of a crop. That might also be a good idea.
Anyway, I've uploaded a mod.
Hope it helps.

Nothing really to do with your shot; more a bit of (largely useless) local knowledge but there's a brick-built 'extension' at the sea end of this groyne, you may have seen it pictured in the papers recently. It's generally thought that its purpose was to break up any incoming heavy waves before they struck the end of the structure.
What it does in reality, at certain times of the tide, is to push the waves upwards and into the end of the groyne. The exact opposite of its supposed, intended purpose!
The result is that there are quite often spectacular breaking waves in otherwise relatively calm conditions.



guess where

guess where by Baycan

"Amsterdam Centraal."

I thought I knew it from somewhere. I've passed through there many times.

I think that everything's been said, pretty much.
Personally, I wouldn't get too carried away with altering the verticals here as, for any correction at the edges, there will be some kind of payoff, in terms of distortion, elsewhere.
It would be less so if the shot had been taken from directly in front of the building but at the angle that this has been taken at, I doubt that you'll be able to adequately straighten it without something in the middle seeming to move, or lean over.
As Pamela says, some people (and I'm one of them!) think that slightly converging verticals look natural.
As with everything, it's subjective.
Hope this helps.



- TRAIN APPROACHING *** by Philpot

You're probably right about the train but it does still work.

I keep threatening to get some shots on the underground but I've yet to do so.

sweet dreams

sweet dreams by justahobby

Trev has a point when he suggests that this is perhaps not cropped as well as it might have been and by all means, read up on and become acquainted with ideas and suggestions relating to composition and so forth but don't ever become a slave to them.
A lot is spoken about the so-called "rules" of composition and many people insist upon following them to the letter.
In reality, there are no rules, merely ideas, suggestions and perhaps, guidelines, which might, if applied, give you a better result than otherwise but that's most certainly not always the case.

Hope this helps.
