Millennium Bridge

Millennium Bridge by Philo

A really bright, clean and attractive shot - quite lifts the spirits !
Minor suggestions - the underframe of the bridge has quite a blue cast so I have reduced the blue content to render it more neutral. A small crop off the bottom to have a nice white diagonal coming out of the bottom left corner to match the strong diagonal in the top right corner. I'm not a fan of blurry water normally, but here it is very effective producing a strong sense of movement. Very nice .
( It would be interesting to see what a good mono conversion would look like ?)


Morris Oxford

Morris Oxford by woolybill1

Wonderful reflections in the nickel silver (?) radiator shroud. Mum and dad had a bullnose Morris when I was but a twinkle in father's eye ! The dent near the top enhaces the pattern of the reflections but would cost an arm and a leg to get repaired professionally.


Runcorn Bridge  from the air

Runcorn Bridge from the air by johnbryan6

Well worth taking the grab shot and the excellent mods work very well.
There was a transporter bridge on the site years ago - during the war a jeep load of GIs from Burtonwood base drove off the the cradle thinking it was an ordinary bridge and ended up in the water. Being well under the influence they were dragged out and laughing about the " lousy bridges you Limeys have!"


Tradeston Bridge, Glasgow

Tradeston Bridge, Glasgow by billmyl

An excellent shot Bill. The mono version is nicely composed, but I prefer the colour version as there a little more life in it and the contrast between the bridge and the sky is better. Having said that, I would have been very pleased to have produced either version !


Smiley Nature.

Smiley Nature. by nishant101

A fascinating picture with some interesting comments. After looking at it for a while I began to see two pictures in one !
A landscape with the mountains in the background and a view showing the contrast between the jagged rocks and the smooth water, mainly to show the beautiful colours in the water. I enjoyed doing these and I hope you don't mind me cutting your image in half !



Kebaya. by WimpyIskandar

A very elegant lady in a very elegant pose but the number 3 intrudes rather and spoils the mood, though I suspect you couldn't do much about this at the time. Someone with better cloning skill than me could probably remove it and add some space at the bottom to get all the dress in.
Good shot tough.


Externsteiner from across small lake

Externsteiner from across small lake by Metchick10

A very restful shot and I have little to add to the excellent comments above.
I did however try a mod which concentrated a little more on the rock and I also reduced the blue content to let some warmer colours through.



Soft by paulbroad

I agree with a lot that has already been said but, as I'm getting on in years, Tanya's comment that "the styling is very dated now" though quite right, makes this shot very appealing to me - reminds me of my youth I expect ! To me it's a great portrait as it is. ( not a critique I know but I had to get it off my chest !)


Pink Blossom

Pink Blossom by David_Cory

An attractive record of spring that lifts the spirits, though I think the right hand half adds little to the overall effect and could well be cropped off.


The Shed

The Shed by funkeldink

I like this and the shed is quite good too ! It inspired me to go and have a look in mine, but no luck Sad

Glencoe Colours

Glencoe Colours by Irishkate

Glencoe has some wonderful large scale photo possibilities, but the way you have spotted and captured this beautiful, more intimate scene is delightful.

A most attractive image that has stimulated some really interesting modifications. I have been studying these for some time. Willie's addition of the eye really brings more life into the shot (Mod 2) and, if combined with the softer skin and removal of the necklace and teeth in the next mods, would produce an even better result - only my opinion of course! Nice work though.

A fascinating image as it is, but Willie's mod adds just that final touch. The only slight niggle I have is with the red fingernails which don't seem to fit in with general, downbeat, mood of the shot, but I think maybe I'm being a bit picky!



Messerschmitt by colin beeley

I agree with Nathan - a lovely clear shot of this Me109. Old Warden is a wonderful place to go, especially for those interested in historic flying machines. Interestingly, this 109 is Spanish built and fitted with a Rolls Royce Merlin engine which was of course the powerplant of its rival, the Spitfire.


Sargent Quackers

Sargent Quackers by ajnaaddict

A good shot that gave me a laugh - Sargent Quackers does look rather splendid in his colourful uniform
There seems to me to be a lean to the left, though this doesn't take the fun away
, but I have rotated the pic 2.5 degrees clockwise out of interest.


Thirsty Soldier

Thirsty Soldier by dusfim

Excellent shot of a fine looking soldier - Pamela and Willie's mods make it even better and I can't add to their comments
Looking at the beakers etc it seems to be leaning a little to the left so I have rotated it 2 degrees clockwise in the mod.
