Very effective but possibly a little over exposed. Did you shoit a few at different expisures? This is an effwct shot rather than record as, without your title it could be many things.
I wonder why you were at such a high ISO and used flash? Your EXIF suggests flash was used but it is not apparent. A bit of dodging on rhe heavier shadows, possibly but I think you needed a bit more in frame. The kettle acts as one subject, on a frame edge and pointing outwards. The boots are another centre of interest.
Willie, as ever, covers most things. You have spot metering set on automatic. Do you fully understand how spot metering works?
It is a strong image. The sun is a touch bright but the tonal range is beyond that of the sensor, hence the bright sun and very dense shadows. It is a pity the body of the tree on the bank were not visible, even if with a rim light.
A fine image making good use of what modern gear can do. You should not be using AdobeRGB for general photography. It is meant solely for professional hard copy printing services. The colour gamut is greater than normal sRGB.
Interesting point. I stopped sending stuff to local newspapers many years ago. They didn't pay! A bit mercenary I know, but if they want good quality work, they should pay for it and not expect it for free, or, at best with a credit.
Could be so good but you are a touch over exposed and the sharpness is off a little. I suspect hand held and probably a big crop. This is not a close up, it is a telephoto shot.
Did you intent this huge dramatic level of grain? The effect here is interesting, but you do not say that you intentionally processed this the have grain. Enlarged, the image is actually breaking up considerably and it would npbe interesting to see it at full resolution.
This is a strange one. The basic idea and imafe is very good, but the background looks quite sharp and the right girks stripy leg looks sharp, yet yoy are at 1/1000 sec and there should be no movement blur. Strange!
Nice image. I don't mind the head in thw mispddle but might have cropped in even tighter for added impact. The eye is sharp but, even at f8, depth of field is minimal. I would have liked a touch more depth and the tongue sharper, akthough that could be movement.
For me, a fine general interest shot but just too much going on as a stand alone. There are dozens of subjects, all equally sharp and with nothing specific to focus on. The eye just goes all over the place.
Not surw what the problem is, Jas. Looks OK to me. A nice image of the house but I would correct verticals on this one. The sky will be out of focus, naturally, and thus the pixel make up will be different to the sharp building.
Not a bad image at all straight from the camera. You must get the PC sorted. It's like being a craftsman with half your tools missing. You need the software to fnish off the image much as you would in the wet darkroom.
You really must not put a logo in the middle of a frane like that. I just look at the logo and, if I wanted to pinch the image, I would just clone it out.
Really, mono is the wrong choice. It screams for well exposed colour. Here, I fear, either the conversion has produced a flat heavy image, or you are a long way under exposed, or both!
Nice. No problem with flash on camera if it is correctly managed. It is often rather more convenient with children. You do what works.
A good try because you have retauned feather detail. You really did need to get all that beak in and the eye needs brightening. There is no detail there and it thus looks dead.
What a lot of comment. A great pity other images don't generate similar!
This is what HDR is best for but presets are not to be rwcomnendwd and it is slightly over done. The result are slightly unusual tones. You need slightly more brightness abd contrast.
Be so careful with HDR. You realky should not use it unless absolutely necessary and you have not used it correctly here. HDR is to compress tonal range to within that that the sensor can handle yet your sky is too bright and over exposed. It should not be.
