Many thanks for the great feedback, everyone, I will have a look at the suggested crops.

Many thanks for the feedback, guys.

John, if I moved back I would be going up the river embankment so unfortunately I wouldn't be able to frame the mill with the bridge. Good point about the verticals, I will try out your idea.

Geoff, thank for the mods, I like both of them and your comment about the blue cast duly noted.

Many thanks for the UA, Dave.

Jack I may try some of them in the open comp but still some way to go to reach John's standards.

You are right about the floor, Pamela, I was kicking myself when I got home for not leaving a bit of space. Many thanks for the UA, very much appreciated. Grin

Thanks, guys, I like falling star for this as to me it looks like someone holding an umbrella to protect himself from falling sparks.
Jack, wheels of fire would be great for the other image I put in the clubman comp.

Paul, flat definitely not intended so I need to address that as I do like my images punchy.

Thanks,

Many thanks for all the kind comments, this set of images has gone down really well at work. Thanks as always for the mod, Willie, the white balance adjustment certainly helps.

Getting Wet by Philo

Getting Wet

Hi Paul, original is full of colour so I have uploaded it as a version for comparison (I should have done that in the first place!).

John, I did consider cropping the top as there is too much space but as you point out I wanted to retain the top of the water. I have reduced highlights in the background but I will try to darken further as you suggest.

Thanks,

Thanks for the feedback and mods everyone. I think my favourite mod is Moira's so I will have a go at producing something similar.

In hindsight there is no reason why I couldn't have taken this with a wide angle lens. I could even go back and try again at the same spot.

I really like Franken's stuff so I will have to be brave and put my long lens away Wink

Hi Ian, I can see why you would want to soften the background but with the car being so close to the wall I don't think it would work. If I went really wide then the back end of the car would go soft.

Hi Willie, I did consider cropping some from the right so I may revisit that. Images have to be submitted by Monday with judging taking place later that week I believe. I will let you know how I get on.

Morning Mist

Thanks for the comments and suggestions guys. When composing the image it was always tricky as to where to crop the bottom and I can see why losing the slope helps. Good point about those puffs of cloud too.
Cheers for the mod, Mike, I will give that a try and also look at cloning over the bare earth on the slope.

Feeling a bit better about the shot now Smile

Many thanks for the feedback everyone. I can understand the suggestions to clone out the wires so I may give that a go. I would have loved kids in the shot but I was only allowed to take a photograph if no pupils were present.

Out! by Philo

Out!

Thanks once again for the great feedback and mods.

I am really enjoying the lens and the results are very good. A 400mm f/2.8 would be more appropriate for sport but the Tamron is superb value. Not thinking of going full frame, Willie, maybe in a few years.
