A very dramatic and colourful shot Tracy and therefore one that it is difficult to improve upon. The horizon looks level and nicely on the lower third and the colours are good. The only possible mods in my opinion relate to cropping as you mentioned and these would be minor. I would consider taking off a small amount at the bottom to reduce the black area very slightly and a little at the top to retain the proportions so that the horizon stays on the lower third. Lovely shot.
Another lovely shot Bill with soft colours and attractive shapes well caught. Great to be able to call such hills local !
I really like this shot - seems you are looking East over the Menai with the Snowdon massif in the background. The moon is a lovely colour and the lights twinkling on the hillside look fine. But ( there's always a but!) I don't think the foreground helps - it seems to me to clash with the softer colours of the hills and sky and the horse in particular is very prominent. An alternative and more restful composition could be achieved by cropping off the bottom up to the level of the far shore. The colours are interesting- not necessarily natural but quite pleasing - maybe the AWB was foxed by the evening light. Nice image though.
Another dramatic shot of this beautifully restored car. I was interested in the nostalgic comments on your previous post on the lines of "they don't make them like they used to" From my experience in the motor trade I would reply " thank goodness for that!" as the vehicles of this era were generally badly put together, unreliable and often fitted out with bits that the manufacturer happened to have on the shelf. An example of this is the driver's windscreen wiper on the Triumph - it overaps the windscreen pillar by a good inch which makes for a lot of clatter and poor wiping performance ( I speak from experience!) and was a fault found on quite a few post war cars. This particular car looks wonderful as it is obviously the owner's pride and joy and Bill's photo shows it to advantage.
I have been following your series of Australian images with great pleasure and interest as I have a good friend who lives in Broome. Your images show me a lot of the places he mentions and the first of a new BBC series of "Australian Coast" featured the Kimberley area. I found the colours to be almost unbelievable, but your excellent images confirm this dramatic scenery.
Really atmospheric night time shot - hard to find anything to criticise. I think Moira's crop works well and the buildings top right seem to be leaning outwards a touch, so I have done a mod straightening them up and incorporating Moira's mod - being very picky though!
Another landscape to admire and with some interesting mods . I think your alternative, including the whole of the foreground rock, is even better than your original post and there is no black hole. Never got to this area when I was hill walking in Bonnie Scotland, but it seems you had a great trip.
Another attractive landscape Bill - I look forward to these as they remind me of my happy wanderings in Scotland
There are some good colours in this attractive image, but there is rather a lot of black in the left foreground. A fairly drastic crop off the bottom, say to the top of that straight edged rock, brings the horizon ( levelled! ) to the bottom third and leaves the 3 boats in shot.
A wonderfully strong and colouful image that looks equally good in black and white. The tall posts on the right seem to lean outwards rather a lot, which was perhaps how they were, but I have done a mod using "distort" to bring them in a bit. There appear to be some shadowy areas round the tops of some of these posts ( particularly 3rd in from the right ) which I can't explain? Talking of mods, I think Spurn Point was somehat modified by the winter storms!
A really dramatic shot of beautiful Scottish scenery - the colours and the sky are most impressive - I imagine it was quite chilly even in the sunshine as I can see whitecaps on the loch which suggests a brisk breeze!
TT, a C and a W - leads to a most attractive shot! I'm impressed by the camping /walking - a good way to be in a positiion to capture images such as this. The only slight adjustments I might have considered have been addressed by Paul and Willie so I will just sit back and enjoy.
