Butterfly

ButterflyHi
Good detail in the butterfly and flower, and I like the angle and the position in the frame (although a diagonal might have made a more pleasing image). Good depth of field also. If you could have positioned yourself a little lower, so that the butterfly was against plain sky, rather than with bits of leaf/twig behind it, that would have improved the pic. The butterfly body could also do with lightening a bit, as some of the detail is lost in the shadow. I'd be tempted to get rid of the two half-leaves on the right-hand side, but cropping might spoil the proportions (rule-of-thirds). Hope this helps.

oldbarn

oldbarnThis could be a strong image, but lacks a little impact as it is. If you adjust the levels a bit (if you have the software to do so) you could bring more depth to the dark tones, and lift the lighter ones (eg where the sun is hitting the snow). I think it might also have benefitted if the barn had been a bit further to the left. If you shot the image in RAW, you might be able to retrieve some detail in the sky, too, as it looks empty at the moment. Hope this helps!

HRH Earl of WessexGood shot! Have you tried a polarisation filter? Cuts down/out reflection. I use it for plant shots, where the sun is bouncing off the leaves, but I imagine it should work with bald heads, too!
