Dudler covers it Jas. The basis of a good shot, but you needed a much denser image and a much tighter crop, just to the cages filling the frame. However, the main problem for me is the rather flat mono conversion. It does lack density, punch and resolution. Not like you.
A very nice scan, but then medium format does scan well with care. Velvia has handled the job well but can be a bit saturated for many peoples tastes, and scanning can increase the effect. I might just desaturate a touch.
Decent shot and Willie has covered it all. The sun is a bit bright and there is a touch of over processing I think which reduces the natural look. You could have reduced shutter speed with a tripod, but you should still release the shutter with either a remote release or the delayed action. the very act of pressing the shutter button can cause vibration.
In most ways, very good. The problem is the lack of real sharpness. The dogs eyes should be pin sharp and they are not. I suspect you are just inside the minimum focus range of your lens. i assume this is the kit lens and it will not focus terribly close. A bit more info, focal length used for example, would help.
Like these, Ian. Very effective indeed. Both work but the colour up is rather superior. Fine image.
The problem with such images is that it loo is rather more impressive to the eye than the camera. You need a subject to base your composition on with the sky as a background.
There are too many colours here to mess about with white balance. WB looks at colour temoerature, measured in degrees Kelvin. Here, the nature of the lighting should not be considered tungsten or even fluorescent because that only applies to bare or frosted bulbs. These are coloured!
Decent shot of the pooch. Ideally rather closer and portrait format to fill the frame and remove the background distractions. It is just of sharp, and that is camera movement at such a low shutter speed.
A nice shot, well composed.
A good image. It is difficult, at this size, to gauge how sharp a shot is. I think, when a section is enlarged, I detract a little softness, but not much. There mat be a traffic vibration effect. You do use a remote release or delayed action to release the shutter?
I have to say that I'm a touch surprised at the quality here. You are a long way over exposed and the birds are very unsharp. As you seem to be on an auto setting with no over ride, I would have expected a lot of under exposure rather than over.
As you will know, it just doesn't work for me at all. If just the hand had been perfectly exposed and sharp, then a different story. Potentially superb.
What a lot of feedback
A good sharp image. It does lean a tiny bit and, like Willie, I find it just a touch dull in tone. Just needs a l,little contrast boost to improve impact. I see the tree idea, but not sure about the star on tip? Looks like a fluffy feather. Maybe a soft, but more obvious star.
I actually quite like the mono only, but not the part colour. That doesn't work at all. There are potential compositional issues, but it is what it is. A very general street shot with a lot going on and, for once, I'm less bothered about a specific subject.
