Another great shot of this beautiful scene - a great sense of peace and tranquility with the ducks paddling gently in from the left. I notice you have set the white balance manually - to my aged eyes there seems to be a blue cast but , in the late afternoon light. that probably would be there. Just out of interest, I have taken the liberty of doing a mod where I have reduced the blue and cyan content ( got a bit carried away actually!). This seems to bring out the golden light of near sunset and produces an alternative which would be more like a summer scene I suppose. Oh and I removed one unfortunate duck to leave a space on the left. Now, where did I put that roasting tray
A fine, detailed, rich image which would be difficult to improve, but I think Paul's mod does brighten it just a touch.
There is a slight lean to the left which could be easily corrected and also quite a lot of space around the main subject - ie the lighthouse. I would be tempted to crop some off the top and bottom, at the same time removing/cropping the posts on the right. This would move the lighthouse off centre, but whether this is better than the central placement is down to your own feelings as rules do not have to be followed!
Lovely dramatic winter sunset colors. The birds settling down for the night suggest a tranquil atmosphere but the way some of the trees are leaning to the right make it look rather stormy!! Either way it is a very attractive shot.
I agree with Paul, you have lifted it out of the run of the mill category and produced a dramatic image.
A very pleasant shot of this pretty village - I remember the long walk down to the harbour and the long climb back! I like the colours as they are. There is a lean outwards top right which might look better corrected and the foliage on the right is rather dark and uninteresting. Just as an alternative I have done a mod which concentrates more on the central features of the view, but this in no way detracts from the original. Nice work.
I wonder if it could be the lamp post which almost bisects the shot right down the middle? - could be cloned out but would be a big job.
I really like this one - a strong image. The trails are excellent and the moonlight illuminates the clouds very well. I like the way the headlights have brought colour into the trees on the right - there is a structure there (sign?) though it's not too intrusive, but I would remove the bit of bridge in the foreground.
The detail in the brickwork of the old chimney is excellent and shows the skill of those who built it. The swarm of bees(?) looks huge and I can see an old face with a pointed nose looking out! A very interesting image.
A fascinating and surreal image which grabs the attention.
Beautiful rich colours which capture the mood very well The only critique I can come up with is that the sea in the foreground is rather dark and I have done a mod to lighten the area under the setting sun to suggest a reflection - a touch of gold there would have been good, but I didn't know how to do that!
I like this very much - it leaves you to use your imagination and make up your own story. Even the slight tilt which means she appears to be running uphill - against the problems of Life? There is a tiny area of relative sharpness on her shoulder and arm, which I think is sufficient to contrast with the fluidity that Nathan mentions.
