It's a cool shot of the head , great detail but something has gone wrong with the left side of the shot looks like there is a blue hole where the insects body should be and some ghosting random detail , I,m guessing the insect was dead and this is a stacked image , if so think your stacking program has messed up a bit , and for me has spoilt the image . Might have been worth cropping tighter to looses the flaws.
Nice shot captures the atmosphere of the evening light great , one criticism is the amount of distortion on the nearest building , walls look on a slant to me , think this will be cause by the wide setting of your lens and could be corrected in processing , either that are there some dodgy builders down your way
As ever a your style stands out , and I,m a big fan but this shots not working for me , just think there is to much blank white in the top left , peekay2001 might find something deep in this empty space and indeed this might have been your intension , but this shot doesn't keep me interested the way your work normally does .
Boom , this is great Al you got this spot on , the blue tone the the long exposure this really ROCKS , there is an attempt at a joke there , sorry about that . But man this rock formation is really cool , we must try and get there the next time I,m up ,really can't praise this enough , gets an award from me all day long , expect this shot might see a few more on the way , well done mate
I do like this shot , it's different and the model looks good against the graffiti , but for me there are a couple of points spoiling it . Firstly it's looks like some off the colour from the wall has made it through your processing around the girls arm hold in the cigarette , also even though the girls eyes are great and the lip colour should be focusing me on her face my eye is drawn to the cigarette which is a bit mad but that's the way it's working for me . Being picky here as it's still a cool shot .
what a cracking shot , yes there is a bit of noise but totally forgivable to catch one of these in flight so well , possibly some of the noise could be removed with a bit of processing trickery , i use a sigma 105mm macro which is top class in my opinion , there is a new version of it out now with image stabilization , which is great but if moneys tight the one i have has come down in price , i use mine with extension tubes sometimes which allows very close focus distance .
Seaweed for me is ugly and in my experience very difficult to make it look good , I always try to avoid it in the foreground when possible , but you have used this very cleverly and without it the shot might not work , the swirls around it look great ,exposure spot on to find the shapes in the water movement , knew this one would look good , top marks . I find titles hard to choose , sometimes put some fav music on and and steal a part of a lyric . Not that keen on your choice for this shot , with Dave on that it makes me think of a kitchen appliance , minor thing , stay well .
Another cracking shot from our early mornings , Nathan is spot on about exposure time water looks great spilling over the rocks , also like the way the rocks decrease in size towards the lighthouse , perfection might have been if the 2 rocks on the right weren't there giving a less cluttered line in , but only so many rocks you can move only joking Al , spot on as expected .
