Lotus Elan by strokebloke

Lotus Elan


Quote: A pig to get into and even more so, to get out of.

Agreed Jack.
A friend of mine had one of the "Gold Leaf Team Lotus" liveried ones back in the old days.
Its greatest failing was the "doughnuts" that they employed in the half shafts.
A restored one would certainly have universal joints in their place.

It's not yours then . . . ?

Thoughtful.

Hi Ian,
I don't think there's much I can add to what's been said.
I trust you're well.

Westminster Southbank by true

Westminster Southbank

Sometimes it's worth getting up at silly times!

However, that's not "Southbank," which is on the south side of the river and which Westminster isn't.

This is "Embankment."

Blimey!
You don't see many of these about.
Do you have the colour version, or better still, the colour version with the whole thing in shot?
I'd love to see it.

Brighton Old Peer at dusk by Clairbear74

Brighton Old Peer at dusk

Actually, that's "The West Pier;" there is no "Brighton Old Peer."

"Brighton Pier," a bit farther along the beach and which will forever be known to Brightonians as "The Palace Pier" is in a far better state of health.

Towards Salisbury, Wiltshire


Quote: Does it look too sharp?

Hi Louise,
I'd say it's slightly oversharpened, although it's hard to make a realistic judgement with a shot as tiny as these are.
I see what you mean re.the steeple. Everything else that should be vertical is OK.

This has "plunger" rear suspension.

Quote: This time the remans of Brighton Pier.

No.

It's the remains of "The West Pier."

"Brighton Pier," which will forever be known to Brightonians as "The Palace Pier" is still in good health.

The O2 Arena. London. by Nigwel

The O2 Arena. London.

I suspect that the original pre-manipulation version of this was perhaps not the best shot you've ever taken?
Presumably, you used a tripod?
If you didn't then I'm intrigued to know how you held a DSLR, with an 18-250 bolted to the front of it, still at 125th. in a cable car the swings about even when it's supposedly stationary, then took the shot using your left hand.
As for the hand and the bits at the top, I have to agree with what's already been posted.

Revised edit by ladigit

Revised edit


Quote: I will have to see how it looks I guess!

That's the only way you'll ever know!

I can usually tell by looking at an image on my monitor, whether it's going to print well, or otherwise but that's down to my being used to the monitor's display and knowing how it relates to the finished product from my printer.
Likewise, I'm pretty confident that I can get it right with images that I have printed at a lab. It helps, of course, that I always use the same one and prepare the images accordingly.
I've downloaded this and I'd be confident that I could produce a decent enough print here but of course it's all subjective.
Hope this helps.

Night Attack! by paulbroad

Night Attack!

Well done Paul!
I won't get involved in the technicalities but this has obviously been a straightforward exercise that any one of us could replicate on a wet Sunday afternoon (once the MotoGp season has finished!)
Wilie's mod. shows us how easy it is to alter the results; again something that most of us can do but good practice all the same and a great way to learn, if you've never tried anything like it before.
It also helps everyone that Tanya's gone into some depth with her critique, almost taking the image apart. A few things to look for if you decide to try it yourself.

I've bookmarked this.

Rain - nyc

It's all been said, I think.
This really works well.
I could see this, produced large, on a wall in a public building somewhere.
Well done.

Dublin City Marathon by ladigit

Dublin City Marathon

Good advice above and nothing to add.
Normally, I'd agree with Paul's view that a shot from the front would be preferable but in a rather quirky way, I rather like this.
I think it works well.

I'm guessing that this is a quite severe crop from a much larger original?

Nikki at Brighton by Dixxipix

Nikki at Brighton

The symmetry here's almost spot on but you've chopped off the top of "The Birdcage," as it's known locally.
There's a fair amount of unnecessary "stuff" to either side too.
I think you'd have done better to present this as an 8X10 portrait to address the above.
Otherwise, it's hard to offer much of an opinion on a shot at this size but on a positive note, I rather like the processing and resultant colours.
Hope this helps.

Old enemies by JackC

Old enemies


Quote: A Hurricane with an ME109 on it's tail.

Sort of.
That's actually a "Buchon."
It's a Bf.109 (they stopped being Me. 109s early on in the war) airframe, ironically, fitted with a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine.
They were built under licence in Spain after WW2.

Old School Ford Pop by ahughes3

Old School Ford Pop

There would appear to be artefacts all over the door, or is it a reflection of something?
Also, you really needed to get rid of those telegraph wires and the top of their pole.
I'd like to see the non-manipulated, original version of this.

By: ahughes3

Dragon Rapide by Les_Cornwell

Dragon Rapide

Not sure what manipulation's been carried out here, although I think I can probably guess!
Regardless, it's a striking image.
Personally, I'd be inclined to crop a bit from the bottom, losing the treetops and so on and concentrating on the sky.
As an aside, I've flown in one of these. It was erm, interesting, to say the least!

A Pair of Provosts by brian1208

A Pair of Provosts

I've got a collection of skies, many from several cameras ago.

Whenever I use one as you've done here, as a background, it automatically becomes the bottom layer and regardless of what I place on top of it, Photoshop, CS6, in my case, always identifies the finished result, as that original image.

Hope this helps.

Teignmouth back beach, Devon. by LouiseTopp

Teignmouth back beach, Devon.

Hi Louise,
This is one of those shots that will probably create a different opinion from everyone that offers critique upon it and I'm not about to become the first!
As for the afterlife being something like this; I could also quite happily settle for it.
Cheers,
Bren.

I've been looking at these car and bike shots and some of the vehicles are pretty impressive.
Sadly though, I'm not a fan of the processing; I'm assuming it's HDR?
I'd really like to see the originals.
