falling water

falling waterYou've done a good job here of making the scene look bigger than it actually is! The pool of water at the bottom helps this especially.

As you've asked for crit', I will say, I'd like to see a bit of foreground in the frame, the scene looks a little flat without it. Perhaps if there was a little more water at the bottom of the frame or even a few leaves drawing the eye towards the rocks.

Victorian Wall Box

Victorian Wall BoxI like the textures and colours in the stonework and the red adds a nice splash of colour.
I think it would work better with the post box placed of centre though. Probably more to the left of the frame, which would mean the three green blobs were nicely positioned too.

Woodland Path

Woodland PathThis really is a lovely scene Jeff and I really like the way you've composed it with the log on the right hand side, the path disappearing off and the bank of dappled light on the left.

Having seen this through your camera as you were taking it I can't help but feel it may have been a little over worked ? Maybe the brightness and fill light could be toned down a touch? IMHO a scene such as this should be allowed deep shadows and bright highlights as these are the things that probably made you stop and set up your camera in the first place.

I think I can safely say, as a photographer, you are a perfectionist.
From the taking of the picture to the processing, you study every detail and think carefully about what you are trying to achieve. You therefore avoid the obvious problems that people such as myself constantly miss (dust spots, wonky horizons etc Wink) But sometimes may find it hard to know when to stop 'rescuing' an image and let it be what it is.

I don't mean this as personal criticism and hope you don't take it that way. As I haven't seen the actual transparency I may be talking a load of c*** ! But I remember seeing this and thinking "Wow"

Thanks for uploading it, it really is a lovely scene, which I'm sure if you applied the less is more approach to, even you may be happy with Wink

Hay Bail Tracks

Hay Bail TracksThe tracks work nicely as lead in lines, but I think the bales are a little to far away & in to much of a horizontal line.
I could only suggest maybe getting closer to them, to see a little of the texture in the bale as FG. Or maybe moving to the left of the bales so they are more scattered into the distance.
Hope this is a little helpful.
