Magnolia

MagnoliaVery exotic. The image looks over saturated to me. If this were mine (I wish) I would desaturate the greens and blue greens so that the flower took centre stage.

Blue Wheel

Blue WheelLove the idea and the colour popping, very clever, so worth a vote for that. However the image needs rotating to the right to get the water level horizontal and then a little minor adjustment to get the verticals vertical. I copied your image and did those adjustments but you haven't enabled modifications so I can't post it to let you see. If you do want my version just message me and we will fix something.
AROUND SUFFOLK - EYE- TWO WINDOWSA lovely, old fashioned shop front, very crisply captured. If this were mime (I wish) I would rotate it to the left a mite and tinker a bit to get all the verticals and horizontals right. In fact I did, but you haven't enabled mods so can't show you.

A Splash of Colour

A Splash of ColourGreat capture of the water action. If this were mine (I wish) I would produce another version with the coloured seats desaturated and colour matched so that they don't distract from the breaking wave. In fact I did and it worked. I like the inclusion of the seats though as they invite the viewer to sit and take in the view.

Nankeen Night Heron 2

Nankeen Night Heron 2Three nice shots. I like V1 but there is a bright, light halo around the bird's head particularly which, if it were mine (I wish) I would remove.

Cheetah

CheetahSuper capture of the Cheetah with a wonderful expression. I do have a problem with the background though, there are some square blocks I'd lie to eliminate and the colour is just too intense. You haven't enabled mods so I can't do one that would rectify this.

Low Water

Low WaterIt is a lovely scene from a good POV and it has depth but I think the image is rather grey and lacks contrast. I think that there is a lot of potential to produce more dynamic images from this using different B&W modes and duotones. You haven't enabled mods so I can't post some versions to show you what I mean but if you want to see them just message me and we will arrange something.
Prismare, Enschede, the NetherlandsI think this shot has lots of potential. If it were mine I would crop it to make the corner line of the building less central and to remove some of the foreground.

Wonder!

Wonder!I like the idea of this shot. There's a sense of loneliness, even desolation about it. If it were mine (I wish) I would crop enough off the left hand side to put the figure on the line of thirds to make a more pleasing composition, but this is your image, not mine.

Theentry Point @ GUPTI

Theentry Point @ GUPTILove the misty panorama in V1 but the image needs rotating to the right to get the waterline level. As for V2, love the hippy style bandana!

Descending into the light

Descending into the lightLove the lines and shapes in this but I find the brightly coloured and very sharp lettering and motifs on the banners very distracting. If this were mine (I wish) I would do something to minimise their impact. In fact I copied image, desaturated the banners, reduced the contrast on them then blurred them by about 1.2 and it made them much less prominent. You haven't enabled mods so if you want to see my version just message me with your e-mail address and I will send it to you then delete your e-mail address immediately to protect your privacy.

Marmoset

MarmosetWhat a pretty creature, love those feathery ears. If this were mine (I wish) I would crop it differently to make the subject off centre (to the left) with space to look into on the right, but this is yours, not mine.
Posh posing pears positioned precisely on ParadeJust to prove we are all different and like different things, whilst I love the subject, the alignment and the reflection I think it is a little dull and would benefit from some work on Curves (I tried and it livened it up considerably).
Saturday Shadow - Looe, Cornwall, UKI thought about this one a lot. It is well observed and taken but needs some work. IMHO the brightly coloured flowers take all the attention and as the shadows are supposed to be the focus of the shot that doesn't work. I had a play with the image and there are a number ways of dealing with this. Cropping the flowers out and cropping the superfluous lamp top at the bottom, sharpening and upping the contrast gives a pleasing image where the shadows are the stars. This can also be converted to a mono image. Leaving the image uncropped, sharpening etc and converting it to a Mono (yes this is me suggesting this) takes the emphasis off the flowers and places more focus on the shadows.

You haven't enabled modifications so I can't post the three versions that I have done, but if you want them just message me with your e-mail address and I will send them to you then delete your e-mail address immediately to protect your privacy.

Leeds Castle revisited....

Leeds Castle revisited....Potentially a nice image so a vote for its potential. Nice idea to use the grass lines as lead in lines but they should have led to the front door, so a better POV could have been chosen to achieve this. Also they all seem a little flat to me, especially the mono and sepia toned versions though it applies to them all - more post processing needed to remediate this. You seem to like instructions from the Internet so take your choice from here:-

Blinding sunlight

Blinding sunlightAn excellent character portrait, very well captured. The harsh light makes the image, it explains his screwed up eyes and fully reveals (less than kindly) the texture of his skin and stubble. Nobody will be surprised to hear that I wouldn't go for black & white as I think the khaki uniform colour is important the the event. Instead I would go for a sepia tine that echoed that khaki.

Lobelia

LobeliaNot sure about this one. The focus on the flower in the foreground is fine but the blue flower below and slightly to the left draws my eye away from it and I don't think that the crop does it full justice. If this were mine (I wish) I would crop a lot from the lhs and some from the top or bottom (not sure which and am 60+ miles away from my computer so can't try it) and further blur and probably desaturated those background blue flowers.

Worth a vote for its potential though.

Cormorants

CormorantsThis post proves that for every photographer there is an opinion and that they are all different. Mine is as follows - its a shame that you have cropped off the wing of one bird and the tail of the other but to my mind the dynamic of the birds looking at each other is what counts here. I am nowhere near my computer at the moment or I would experiment with different crops, but there has to be a way of capturing this dynamic.

I think that the feather texture and detail you have here is wonderful. There, that's my two pen'orth!

Mountains & The Sea

Mountains & The SeaLove the minimalism here but IMHO it is rather unbalanced. Whilst I appreciate that you have used rule of thirds with the waterline on the line of thirds, I really think that the image would benefit from more sky, perhaps placing the mountain top on the line of thirds, and just a little less sea. I'm away at the moment so cannot test this out on my computer, and you haven't enabled mods anyway. Just a thought.

Self-Cleaning!

Self-Cleaning!Well observed and captured. I have never seen this behaviour before either. I think a different crop will place more emphasis on the snail and some minor adjustments will brighten it up - mod posted.
