Sun rise by Yoga

Sun rise

A gorgeous capture - the colours and silhouettes are wonderful.

But, I'm not a fan of tilted horizons - I feel a big improvement would be to straighten the image. Smile

Butterfly by Fruitcake


Hi Kayna!! Smile Great to see you uploading again! Smile

A beautiful capture, the butterfly has chosen a gorgeous perch for you! Your point of focus seems to be on the actual flower, this leaves your subject on the soft side - it's very difficult to capture things that sway in the breeze as you press the shutter! Smile In post processing I think I would crop off the right hand side, the grasses there seem to draw the eye.

According to the EXIF details this was taken way back in 2010, I am looking forward to seeing some of your newer work - welcome back! Grin

I'm sure I can see it frowning..............*shudder*.................I'm glad it's not in my porch! (Taffy would probably eat it). A brilliantly caught image though!

The ant feast by Quoise

The ant feast

Even more fascinating, the ants don't eat the aphids, they farm them! When they stroke the aphids with their feelers the aphids excrete a sweet honeydew liquid from their rear ends - the ants drink this liquid. In exchange the ants will defend 'their' aphids by keeping away creatures that would eat them! Smile

You've caught the ant and it's 'herd' brilliantly! Smile

Power....! by andyf3050


A brilliant capture.

I've been watching this site, which shows where lightning is striking moment by moment (there seems to be a lot of activity going on right now!). It is quite mesmerising!

A Little Help please by IshanPathak

A Little Help please

With Photoshop Elements 9, after I've used the 'Magic Selection Wand', I use the 'Selection Brush' - after zooming right in I can choose to select more pixels or deselect others.

If I look at your image above and flip between 1 and 2, I can see a few areas which need selecting (the green at the base of the rose) and some which need deselecting (along the stem).

Sometimes after having done this the edges are quite sharp and pixellated, running a soft blur brush just around the very edge usually helps. Smile

With the above 'Mod', I also gave it a few tweaks in 'Contrast' and 'Lighting'.

As for the 'fallen petals'............a bit beyond me I'm afraid, but I'm sure someone else will be able to help! (I would be tempted to pick the rose and set up a stage for it (with a black background). Then when I'd finished photographing it, pull off a few petals and take more photos!). Smile

Polish Sukhoi Su-22

Perfectly caught and presented - you've panned the jet brilliantly, everything is wonderfully sharp.
(One tiny flaw, you have a small 'dust bunny', top left. A minor point, soon rectified!). Smile
