Pebbles

Pebbles by Lourens_Vorster

Works for me - like the POV and the DOF lovely close calmness and like the contrast with the BG slightly stormy feel.

A very clever and well worked out image - nice work

Welcome home

Welcome home by Cpt_Hun

Quite superb - I am enchanted by the image and its enigmatic title. Magical image.

Lotte

Lotte by Angi_Wallace

What a stunning image - not sure what the brief was (just a portrait?) but this is lovely. Just a niggling observation the portrait has a beautiful 'old world' charm - the lattice leaded windows and the girls dress and her look, all add to this - but her finger nails are too modern (I think)!!

A walk along the coastel path

A walk along the coastel path by LouiseTopp

Yes I agree with Salopian - there is a softness to the image that isn't really helpful. I think the overall composition can be helped by cropping using the lovely meandering fencing that echo's the coastline in the distance as your lead in - this makes the image much stronger visually (it leads the eye through the landscape).

I would leave lots of headroom so think about your rule of thirds here (rules are made to be broken but this is a case where I think it applies).

But I see that Salopians mod flouts the rule and sets the horizon pretty much mid way - not sure about this feels a little uneasy perhaps. I have tried to mod to about one third.

Salopian is also on the money with the slightly skew horizon - with seascapes this always has to be right (you can often get away with it in landscape photographs).

Dust bunnies everywhere - chect out the forums for discussions on teh best way to clean your lens.

Lovely bringht, fresh feeling is conveyed by the image - a delight.

PS: Coastal would be better!! (but my spelling is terrible!!)

Window display

Not sure you should be complemeneted on the composition but certainly it was well spotted and beautifuly framed so vote for those. A good eye - and as above the perfect amount of reflection from the houses over the road - frames within frames - nice stuff...

Nursery

Nursery by Majorwatsisface

Umm - for me this is great narrative there is a story here and quite a scary one I would wager - the benevolent smile on the rolly toy hides an awful secret - and just what is the frieze all about?

Great in monotone, a magic sense of forboding and fear - why am I reminded of the Genisis (an 80's prog rock band) album 'Nursery Crime'??

Excellent work...

Dusk @ Glenveagh

Dusk @ Glenveagh by ANNIEKERR

Its a great shot and I can appreciate its magnetic quality (been back to look at it a few times myself). I think it is something to do with the interplay between the two shapes tree and moon and also perhaps the hints of moonshadow along the ridge. A super image.

It is engaging I would clone out the lines of her top (they are just too distracting) but everything else look good...

Cool shot - I think I would crop bottom up to lose the cars and distant lights otherwise nice image.

Why have you uploaded this ??? It is a very personal image and maybe some interesting contrasts but really?

Your other stuff is so much better...

LETTERS NEVER SENT

LETTERS NEVER SENT by keithh

Superb storytelling still life - first class.

ALWAYS TIME

ALWAYS TIME by keithh

Just spotted this beautiful series (from the Shepton Mallet antique thread) they are all superb and what a great collection of tat and ephemera, most excellent.

THE MIDDLEMAN

THE MIDDLEMAN by youmightlikethis

Well cool - such an amazing sense of menance and the bg looks just as if there is some massive fire burning away - the two main faces look extremely anxious which is wonderful and really adds to the menace - the title tees up the image nicely and really starts the story telling process before the image is even seen.

That it is raising heavily for me didn't really matter indeed it just makes the picture look grainy and slightly cinematic.

The central link between teh man and then the bg fire or whatever it is - is beautifuly worked and makes this image intriguing.

Lose the two faces rhs (hoodies?) to keep the attention on the two central characters - would be my only suggestion.

The Painted Lady

The Painted Lady by Leedavieshadley

An excellent macro - personally I don't mind the hints of flora around the bottom of the frame - it provides a context and prevents the image becoming too much of a library shot. Stunning detail with good sharpness across the subject (it may get a little soft lhs but not a real problem).

The only issue for me, and it is entirely personal, is the rather heavy frame you have used, given the fine detail of the subject. It is in danger of drowning out all your hard work in presenting such a delicate and beautiful image to us.

I am interested in seeing your images, not your dexterity with PSP or PS or whatever software you used. Keep it simple and finely worked if the image warrants it (if the image is rubbish on the other hand then big it up with an all singing all dancing frame!!!) this image stands on its own for sure.

sunset orb spider

sunset orb spider by carper123

What a very cool shot - the lighting is spot just enough to pick out the spider detail. Like the slightly threatening but featureless bg which serves to really set the subject up.

There are a couple of horizonal bands running through the bg that are perhaps a little distracting (have you cloned something out?) but no great problem tbh.
