StaircaseYou have done your own crit. Nice subject and good composition but the bottom is washed out. Try burning in or a step wedge to darken the bottom. Better, expose for the highlights when shooting.

It is much easier to lighten the dark areas in software than try and put detail back into blown highlights.

Exposure By The Elements

Exposure By The ElementsVery over exposed and the final mod above is much better. You must check your LCD and histogram if you have time and always expose for HIGHLIGHTS, not shadows. You can retrieve detail from shadows, but you cannot replace burnt out detail in highlights.

Bee on my Lavender

Bee on my LavenderQuite interesting to look at, but better if you get in rather closer, and your 18/55 - if it is the kit lens, will not let you.

Macro is a specialist subject and you have made a good try. It is better not to have very large blurred items in the forground thought - the sharpest image should be the most prominent.

flowercompoInteresting - a lot of impact. The type of shot seen on the wall in a modern minimalist appartment. Not sure about the very high contrast, but that is a very personal observation. Nice to see you trying siomething different.

Windmill 1

Windmill 1A good shot WITHOUT the artificial sun and rays - I'm afraid that destroys the image for me - but at least you tried something different.

I have to ask - are you adding or increasing image saturation. If so, i would hold back a bit. I've looked at some of your other work and it is all heavily saturated.

I have a 300D, now rarely used, but it tended to uder saturate if anything. Check your onboard settings.

Dunmore Petrol Pump - B&W

Dunmore Petrol Pump - B&WInteresting and worthwhile. Definately a B&W shot and would be in Ireland. Modification is better - B&W needs depth, contrast and punch - I printed in a wet darkroom for 40 years! There MUSt be pure whites and full blacks - usually.
