Stones and Trees

Stones and Trees by billmyl

Hi Bill.
I think your composition is find with the half build stone wall, but because the sky is on the weak side I would think about changing the sky completely and go for a B&W.
Have uploaded a quick mod just to show you what I mean, Yes I know it is far from finish and the sky is not what you would say great but just ideas.

Afon Llugwy at Pont-y-Pair bridge by lespaul

Nice enough photo maybe missing a central subject matter i.e. dog,person just to keep your eye within the photo.
Tech side everything seems ok, the water as a nice soft flow to it, I would maybe go for a crop to the bottom of the shot, and also a just a little touch of warm up filter (see uploaded mod)

Over all for me nice capture of a pleasant scene.

Beautiful soft evening light (at first I thought it was morning light) great landscape.

sky beauty

sky beauty by horselover1997

The the most important thing to remember is that we all had to learn from scratch, and to produce a half decent photo will take a while. So my advice for the day is think about what you are going to photograph, have uploaded a mod with that bin cloned out and will leave it to you to compare. Let me know which one feel is the better photo.

Enjoy.
Mike.

Great landscape Paul, and love the sky, composition and lead-in. Have uploaded a mod more or less a copy of Willie (saves me thinking for myself)

Beach Silhouettes

Beach Silhouettes by paulbroad

I like the beach area of the shot but not too keen on the houses at the very top of the photo, have uploaded a mod with a slight crop.
Also Ian might have a point with the beach being over crowded, not not sure as I like the flow of people over the beach so not sure.

Otherwise great beach photo with a lovely sense of life to it.

Firstly I would get rid of that overdone blue sky (see uploaded mod) otherwise nice photo.

Re-edit of Wine Strand, Co. Kerry

Re-edit of Wine Strand, Co. Kerry by ladigit

Must admit better than your first go, like the subtle colors of the sky & water, have uploaded a mod with a slight increase of exposure and a touch of green on the centre land area. Not sure if it helps but was working on doing something similar on the first time around but never get it finish.

Great photo.
Mike.

general

general by shydallah

Lovely sky, but at the expense of the bottom half of your photo so not sure what you were after did you mean for the factory area to be so underexposed?
If not then you need to work on your understanding of what your camera is capable of when it calculates the exposure of a scene, not that easy to explain in a few words.

I do like V1 love the way you travel through the wall into the scene, and where did you hire that great cloud from.

Mermaid Inn

From here it looks like one of those early B&W photos hand painted postcards from before my time, but still very nice.

Stairway- Powys Castle

Stairway- Powys Castle by dunfr

Agree with Ian would have been better to have before/after to compare, but as for your photo I kind of like the effect. I thought the photo itself needed a crop and some additional color added (see uploaded mod) let me know what you think.

Half Dome and Aspen

Great mono landscape photography.

Yosemite Creek

Yosemite Creek by mdconnors

Beautiful Landscape photograph, I do prefer the b&w version, but only one niggly point which I can not decide on and that is the log. Not sure if it should be cloned out of not (have uploaded a mod with the log clone out) please I don't have to make that decision.

Let me know what you think.
Mike.

where`s  my  friggin tripod!!

where`s my friggin tripod!! by waltknox

Yes shame about your photo being on the soft side (where is the Tripod when you need it) but also that bloody great big rock. For me it spoils what would have been a great sunset photo, see uploaded mod.
