sunset orb spider

sunset orb spiderWhat 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.

Dawn at Aber Menai

Dawn at Aber MenaiSuperb recession and stunning early morning feel, nicely caught - those sort of early morning grey and bronze tones before colour really gets a proper hold of the day. Nice boat - looks to me like a Westerly - Fulmar?

For me a slight crop across the bottom - there is perhaps too much fg water and maybe also a tad from the rhs margin - even though your composition looks to be allowing for rule of thirds the end result may be a little more balanced.

Bit of a flare giving a slightly wierd purple blob just below the cottage - not enough to be distracting.

Good stuff Smile

Fall at Sagamore Farm,

Fall at Sagamore Farm,How can anyone pass this image without leaving a comment or a vote. Great juxtposition between the aging leaves and the pristine (looking) fence - which provides such a wonderfully strong lead in - I defy anyone to resist it. But think about its starting position - could it have been even stronger running in from the bottom right corner - and ask is the fg adding that much anyway?

Excellent image.

Depth of Field

Depth of FieldThis is a great image - and I like all the variants - its the layers of colour that are really especially good I think. But do yourself a favour and give the image a background colour that sets up the colours in the image rather than working against them (Black, white or grey would all have worked so much better IMHO).

Beautiful Monster

Beautiful MonsterYou don't need the add-ons here, get rid of the flames and you have a superb image IMO. Crop in a little tighter and lose some of the headroom maybe - face and backcloth are to die for - use them!!

Sandbanks Sunset

Sandbanks SunsetThis is quite beautiful - but I think you may have over enhanced the red highlights on the wave tips - especially in the mid ground. As a general rule I think the highlights should become more subdued as you go deeper into the image - here they tend to stay with the same intensity. Otherwise I love this simple shot its a sumptious comp.

Waterhead

WaterheadReally super image - for me all the boats seem to be pointing up-hill this is perhaps only because they are at an angle to your position but it does make the image look a little 'uphill' or 'wonky'. Sometimes it is worth playing with the horizon corrector on your software - even if the original is correct.

Hope you don't mind me saying this - but I really like the shot so for me it is worth a little tinkering to make it perfect.

Othewise spot on...

Little light, little pink...

Little light, little pink...I really like this shot beautifuly captured - but for me way too much f/g - so maybe think about a crop bottom up. Smile

North East Sunrise

North East SunriseStunning sunrise - the trouble is for me it looks like a sunrise over a garden centre - why should that matter and truth is it doesn't - when faced with such a beautiful sunrise. But I might have been tempted to go out and try and find a spot beyond the car park - but hell you were on holiday who wants to get up early then!!.

Close to the Edge

Close to the EdgeCrop lhs to take the tree away from the central point was my first thought - but looking at it clearly you intended this paricular comp. Otherwise well worked exposure to give you heaps of blurry water which I think works well. Pretty good dof so setail is still nice and sharp mid image and the tree is a nice touch (even if for me it is in teh wrong place!!). Excellent and highly accomplished stuff

Farm Lane

Farm LaneYes I completely agree - this would be nothing without that touch of red - that is a masterstroke even though it doesn't really make sense (it is restricted to tightly to the vanishing point - for me to be convinced but that doesn't detract).

Good stuff

Ferragudo, Portugal

Ferragudo, PortugalWell this is an interesting shot - all the action in the bottom quarter but saved by that wonderful lantern (but you need to be careful with your post production work - if it shows it hasn't worked!) breaking skyward and the fir tree too.

Wonderful tranquility and a really nice simple shot - yep works for me.

FOUR!

FOUR!Shame about the fielders arm - but a nice shot good timing (you and the batsman) interesting that the batsman is not watching the ball and he is not rolling his wrists to keep the ball down. So if you were a cricket coach this shot could be quite useful.

Nice work - try cloning ot the fielder maybe?

reminuta per rene

reminuta per reneBrave and very slight but equally enchanting and in its own way strong. Can an image be all those things - well for me I am looking at it - exceptional work.

sunset

sunsetAm I missing something fundamental here - fantastic sunset and beautiful seascape and all but is there an 'elephant in the room'?

Checked all the above comments and not one has mentioned the huge squiggle that looks like a rampant spinnaker sail but actually makes no sense within the context of the image, at least for me.

Emporer's news clothes perhaps? I love lots of your images elsewhere in your PF but this doesn't work for me I am afraid.

Volcanic Sunset

Volcanic SunsetThis is a smashing shot my only issue is the slight competition between the interesting fg shapes of the stile and the distant sunset - there are almost two images here but good and both demanding to be viewed. Difficult to know how to join them up but I wonder if you had lowered the pov you might have created a more joined up image (don't get me wrong I still really like this)

Very best wishes

Wind Breaker

Wind BreakerCool image - thiings I like = strong diagonal lead in to horizon, excellent coulour balances and some good contrasting textures. The image is detailes and sharp with a good dof.

Things that could be a little better IMO = caption placed within the image (clone it out if you can;t find the original) it always strikes me as strange that uploaders find it necessary to do this with an image that is just 1000 x 6oo mp's its too small to do anything with and any watermark can easily be removed anyway. The other thing perhaps to do with composition is that the image is divided midway I think this may have been a case for not rule breaking and following rule of thirds - maybe?

Excellent first upload look forwad to seeing more.

Cheers

Earl's Cragg Sunset II

Earl's Cragg Sunset III really like the colours here - but (and I have checked my monitor calibration) it is just a little dark. I think it is an image worth spending a littl etime with in PS or whatever software you are using. If possible it needs a little lightening and push the contracst a little too I think.

But very nice sumptious colours and shapes Ummmm

Cheers

Oblivious

ObliviousThis should be a powerful piece of work and it is for sure. But it has the feel of being stage managed (I am sure it wasn't) which sort of works against it, for my anyway.

I don't know the answer but I think perhaps the couple form an almost seperate image to that of the unfortunate homeless guy. A couple of steps more to close the gap and bingo - problem solved or you could have moved you position to the left - maybe

I think also I would lose some of the fg pavement.

On a completely different tack - why not give the homless guy a go with the camera - so he can take a picture of the people walking by - now you have me thinking.

The Great British Summer!

The Great British Summer!Clone in some more 'top' and then it won't look quite so tight - fantastic image like the post production on it - really works well and doesn't it just sum out this wretched summer weatherwise.

Cheers
