Carnation???

Carnation???As far as composition goes Hilary, your have tried some abstract here and they look fine, as carol says try them in Portrait and if you wish to capture the images as normal I would suggest your a little to close. You could up your ISO to 400 and gain a little more DOF if your using a tripod then slow your speed down and open up your lens aperture as this will certainly increase you DOF exponentially ....John

tulip

tulipHi Gwynn they say some part of you image has to bee sharp lol, where is it sharp if its blurred? Not as I am a lover of PS and the sharpening of an image after capture, my thoughts are it should be sharp when you take it. This is lovely Gwynn almost a little HD and too much contrasst but I would suggest its a little too bright and you can easily darken this by 3 stops and all the detail will shine through, very nice image...John

Something from the Garden

Something from the GardenHi Nathan, thank you for the Compliment, it was very kind, I did try and get an accolade for you but EPZ would not accept my suggestion sorry. Flowers as you say are not as easy but it's good to try new things. I have always found on this type of image to make it a little darker , maybe F/11 with the same speed would have given a little more detail. But a dam good effort and don't give this up please. Regards John

Looking for the Light

Looking for the LightThe detail in the bottles Kate is superb and its very well taken, but I dont see the bottom of the bottles and every one is saying its very good, my thoughts are the composition cannot be correct as it is not complete, please excuse me Kate...John

Huts

HutsWow Nathan controversy at it's best. Photography is not about subject content but about the light and exposure used in your image IE painting with light, it is also your own special interpretation of what you alone saw when you decided to try and capture the said image. The question being is the subject matter sharp Check Yes. do you have composition in your image Check Yes. Did you have light enough to portray the whole image Check yes. Did everyone interpret what you saw correctly. Check no. Well who's inability is that then?

Nathan its sharp, well exposed, with strong com positional lines. But the subject matter is not a flower or a mountain or even a portrait , what it is , is an image that's based on your artistic ability, you did your best to capture what you saw.

If anyone on EPZ can tell me voting is fair please stand up and tell me. If anyone on EPZ can say awards are fair please do the same. Nathan an opinion is something based on someone else s inability to interpret your work the same way as you did. Regards ..John

Still striking

Still strikingHi Colleen. They booth look fantastic and your so called instructors should be more than happy with your results after such a short time. Your Bg are both well out of focus and nicely done for a beginner.Couple of small points. Again with this type of photography, either its very close or you show the whole plant but as I said yesterday on both images the are just running out of the frame but that is easy to correct so next time just frame your subject in the view finder and take a little time to ensure all of it is in the frame. Without getting technical because I dont think your ready for the Photo Mumbo Jumbo that you have found so rightly confusing. But a little bit darker would improve the color saturation of both images, so just bear that in mind next time. Good luck for tonight and I am sure you will do better than most as you have been improving so well over the past month. Photography is a huge subject and prone to opinion so dont worry about what they say as long as the basics are correct and most importantly , you are happy with your own work. Good luck....John

Up close

Up closeA super set Colleen with V2 being the stand out image by a long long way. I would suggest that to improve your composition on V2 that is, the right hand side of the leaf would be a far better composition if you included the end in the frame. I would like to see this image again if possible with the whole leaf included....John

PRISTINE

PRISTINEVery nice work with lots of detail and color , just a little tip try and compose your focal image to one side as this will help with your composition, but a well captured image...John

THE SENTINAL

THE SENTINALWow super detail and beautiful white tones, just a suggestion, but take a little crop off the left side and that will help with composition, sorry just a little advise but wow a real cracker of a shot...John
