I had 4 years studying Metallurgy in Sheffield. would not want to holiday there! A good shot in general. It is one where I would correct theverticals as they are just off, not huge amounts.
A nice scene but rather soft? I suspect you did not use a tripod, hoping the wide angle would cover the slow shutter speed. Looks like a touch of movement to me.
I always prefer steam locos three quaters on, but this is reasonably effective. I would lighten some of the deeper shadows a touch with the dodge tool, but do find the colour very yellow. The tone is general and thus lloks like degraded yellow base paper. Toning should be progressive with some brighter areas near white and dark areas deep brown, if working in sepia.
I like it. I would crop quite significantly top and bottom to create a panoramic. That wouldbe even stronger as there is little in the sky and foreground.
I do like the content very much, but I 'm odd man out. Image quality in many shots from back then was actuallyverygood indeed. I don't get age, I get a flat graininess. I realise I am on my own, but I would have prefered either a strong deep brown sepia, or a relatively contrast mono.
A reasonable image but I, too, would prefer the head nearer the right. A flash fill would have helped the dark eyes andto me, the focal point is a little too far forward. Enlarged, the whiskers and chest fur are slightly sharper than the eyes. The lighting is obviously very low and thus somewhat against you.
I do appreciate the attempt to move away from the more common presentation. Unfortunately, for me, she is just too small and I struggle with what you intend. Infinity is a long way away and her position is finite. Blown up, her face is very soft so cropping is probably out.
The content and composition is very good. The tones are very flat indeed and you need to lift brightness and contrast to reduce the effect of flat lighting.
I rather like the effect here. We get a lot of water/landscape images and many are missing a focal point or satisfactory composition. This has no subject as such, but a decent composition of shapes. The water has an interesting almost sky like texture.
