The Cardinal Sin

The Cardinal SinThe composition and crop are just fine. The colours in the foreground are great, and the sea is really nice. But I'm not sure about the grey feel to the sky and lighthouse. I'd be tempted to have a play in photoshop and to make the lighthouse bands properly white, and maybe dodge out a few highlights in the clouds. Then the lighthouse would stand out better from the sky, and the sky would look a touch more natural.

Fists

FistsI think this is excellent, but would it have looked better with a shallower DOF, so his left hand was a bit more out of focus?

Recoil

RecoilCertainly very different and also original. As has already been mentioned, your legs are too close to the edge, but I know you can rectify this easily. I would also look at the bright area between your arms, I think you have missed it when masking, again an easy fix.

I really like Marks' mod with the wings, clever.

Another nice image for the portfolio.

jaguar

jaguarNice image with good strong colours and composition, but to get it a little sharper I would have opened up the aperture and instead of shooting at F13 would have used something like F4 and maybe dropped the ISO to 400, with the lens being at 200mm you would still have got the depth of field you needed but would have had a much faster shutter speed which would have helped to increase the sharpness of the image by reducing camera shake.

problem

problemFirstly, the problem. I would hazzard a guess that the software that processes the image coming from the sensor is struggling to handle the extreme highlight, and instead of putting a gradual blend in the image has basically skipped a few 'levels' (bit depth), thus giving a posterisation effect. Not sure how or what would solve it this but it might be a problem with that brand/model of camera, or if you have processed the image it could be the processing software that's at fault.

Secondly, is this the Liverpool Airport Tower?

I must say that apart from the technical issue, its quite a nice image.

Politely Pink

Politely PinkNice pose, lovely eyes and I like the wispy blur aswell. I would though clone out the wooden headboard on the left, I think it spoils the overall feel of the image. Other than that its another goodun.

seconds

secondsHi Dennis, the most crucial part of any image is the lighting. With a watch its important to get the viewing angle just right so that the glass/crystal doesn't reflect too much, or even any light. You then need to be able to enrich the colours and adjust the contrast and shadow levels in Photoshop or Lightroom, and if your processing software will allow it, always shoot in RAW. This is a good first attempt, so persevere and experiment. I took my pics in the front garden, people going past must have thought I'd lost my mind! but after a number of images, hey presto.

Kingham01

Kingham01Watch out for the 'greying' of the highlights. I'd bring back the highlight areas in PS by bringing in one of the HDR exposures and masking out, usually the centre or metered exposure.
