clear the gap

clear the gap by mogobiker

"Where's reverse on this thing?"
Really good action shot - the expression is great
I rotated the image clockwise slightly. cooled the colour and increased the contrast on the face. I then cropped to get a nice diagonal coming out of the bottom left hand corner and to focus more on the biker - this has placed him more central rather than on a third, but he is the main interest so I would think that is OK.
Just an alternative to a fine shot


Wollerton by Danny1970

A lovely display of summer colour - does Wollerton refer to the gardens so named in Shropshire -just down the road from me


(just looked at your portfolio with the shot of Wollerton Old Hall, which answers my question!)

fishermans boat

fishermans boat by mogobiker

A delightful shot that will bring back happy memories of your holiday for years to come, but one that has artistic merit as well.
I note your title "Fisherman's Boat" and , as an alternative, I have done a mod concentrating more on that boat ie cropping off the bush and some of the sky - Tanya's idea of putting more space on the bottom is v good, but I don't know how to do that !


York - River Ouse 2

York - River Ouse 2 by kyleparr

A really beautiful scene, full of interest. It has the rich colours of some of Turner's paintings. Lovely.


Sheffield town hall

Sheffield town hall by mogobiker

It's a very pleasant shot and a nice reminder of your holiday.
I couldn't resist trying to straighten the verticals which involved some rather crude cloning to fill in some white areas that this produced. Just an alternative treatment of a fine shot.
( I have fond memories of Sheffield - many years ago my father bought me my first Hornby train set for Christmas in one of the big stores )


On Shed

On Shed by bwlchmawr

A wonderful atmosphere about this shot - the engineers in deep discussion and the magnificent loco simmering away quietly awaiting orders!


A bike

A bike by xwang

Another masterpiece Jasmine.
I used to ride a bike like that as a youth when I was delivering Christmas post during WW2 !



Wastwater by puma00065

That wonderful sky is the icing on the cake! Beautiful.


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 !)
