Fisherman on lake

Fisherman on lake by juancb

This is a lovely shot, very serenr. Even without the boat it would be good, with the boat it is excellent I also like the little cloud on the mountain top. Ideally the boat would be a yard or 2 to the left and heading the other way, but that's not really controllable.

Only a couple of minor suggestions - apart from the light on the jetties, most of the colour is a bit cold, so I suggest a tweak to the colour balance. Also a crop of the top. See modification.

I wish it were one of mine Smile


Tree Trunk - Auchinstarry Loch

Tree Trunk - Auchinstarry Loch by ajhw2

Some thoughts on things to try with composition and lighting:-
A lower viewpoint in order to emphasise the tree trunk.
Shooting earlier in the day and hopefully getting the sunlight glancing the right hand side of the trunk. Would also give a diagonal shadow.
Cropping a little off the left hand side?
Much more difficult, but something else in the shot to and more interest - a bird?


Empty Spaces Remastered

Empty Spaces Remastered by nishant101

Overall I like this as the scene & the darkness of the image gives it a desolate, unworldly feel. I think that darkening down the light reflections in the mud compared to the previous version helps - although perhaps it is very slightly overdone as it doesn't quite match the reflections this side of the branch.

The composition seems a bit too central with the image trailing off towards the left hand side so I'm posting a cropped version as a suggestion.

Nice one though


Tower in the gap

Tower in the gap by RobinH

I wondered whether a portrait format would be an improvement - the idea being to emphasise the pointing nature of the place. Mod uploaded along those lines. What do you think?



Kelpies by ajhw2

Some good comments earlier, so I won't repeat them - apart from saying that I like the composition.

My thought is that the statues don't stand out all that well against the sky in monochrome, so I suspect that the colour version would be better - steel grey against a blue sky.


Shearwater. by biglog

A nice calm feel to the whole thing. The best elements are the nice red/orange part of the sky and its even nicer reflection in the calm water. I agree with Tony about he good use of the diagonal. The large chumk of grass lower right is less interesting, so I think the shot could have been improved by concentrating more on the colourful areas by zooming in or cropping - or even standing on that rock lower left to increase the apparent area of the reflection.


Under Tower Bridge

Under Tower Bridge by RobinH

I think you have achieved your objective very well. I like the swoop of the railing on the right, the moodiness and the balance between natural light and the street light. I think it's better as you have it with the solitary walker (in exactly the right spot by the way).

I lack the skills to suggest ways of improving the shot, so I'll just say "well done".


Colour Run

Colour Run by xanderwhite

I like the vibrant colours and the the way you've caught the girl's hair at precisely the right moment in it's upward arc. I also like the apparent phantom head profile formed by the dust/smoke (the upper yellow forms the front of the phantom's hair, shading back thro' green to the girl's blue hair which forms the back of the head, you can also see a nose (yellow). The phantom's hairstyle reminds a bit of the early Bob Dylan.

I agree however with Tanya in that I would prefer it if the back of the girl's hair were not cropped off.


Cotton 2

I like the light on the yanks of cotton and the lines & pattern, but I think the vignetting has been overdone.


Morning Sun

My personal view is that the high contrast sky draws the viewer's attention away from the main subject, and so prefers Willie's version.

Lot's of sensible comments here & some good Mods, so I won't go over the same ground again. My only comment is that I find my eye falling away towards the lighter area on the left (is it a font there?), so I would be tempted to darken the area to the left of the pulpit.

Personally I think it's fine to have the wing tips blurred on a flying bird as long as the head (& body) are sharp.

Fishing House, Buttermere

Fishing House, Buttermere by Mike43

I like the light on both the big bunch grass & on the mountainside. The bunch of grass is an important part of the picture. I agee with the other comments about cropping the bottom - the cropped mods are an improvement. A nice picture

The bunch of grass is approximately on the recommended third but I feel it leaves a hole to it's left, also the top of the grass just overlaps a nicely lit part of the mountain, so I think it would have been better if the camera had been a foot or 3 to the right and very sliightly higher.

Portrait 2

Portrait 2 by IshanPathak

The image to my eye has a Yellow colour cast so I've posted a Mod with the Colur Balance adjusted from Yellow towards Blue. I've also darkened the greens a bit in Selective Colour and Curves.

Sky full of pain

Sky full of pain by olamii97

The sky has a lot of interest in it and is clearly the main interest in the image. The silhouettes of the palm trees & undergrowth take away a lot of space from the interesting sky - especially the black area at the bottom. I've uploaded a cropped version that makes the proportion of sky greater.

Something odd seems to happened at presumably a post processing stage and there is a lot of pixellation/grain/blotchiness in the darker clouds.
