This is a restful scene which captures the atmosphere of the damp and muddy Humber very well and which the birds are obviously enjoying - quite a bathing party !
You have created a lot of interest with this attractive shot Jasmine and the many comments make fascinating reading, so I won't add to them
Really nice piece of work which conveys the cold, still atmosphere of winter so well
A lovely rich image which, as Isabel says, is excellent as it is, so no minor tweaks could improve it? Just to be awkward I have tried quite a heavy crop off the bottom which does lose some of the water and reflections but also gets rid of some of the darker areas and also just a little off the left side. then lightened the remaining shadows in levels - creates a semi panoramic effect. Different but I suspect the original is better !!
A good, powerful image but some areas are more interesting than others. I think I would follow in Moira's footsteps here in undertaking some judicious cropping but aiming to get as many diagonals as possible emerging from the corners of the image and converging towards the tunnel entrance. I have done a fairly drastic crop to achieve this , but it emphasises the dramatic tunnel effect.. Just an alternative take on a good original image.
Exceptionally well caught moment - another in a great series. I agree with the suggestion to crop the right side rather than the left. The baby's clothes particularly, seem to have caught the strong sunlight and got burnt out to some extent, merging into the white trousers of the poster lady. Hard to avoid in those lighting conditions. I have taken the liberty of producing a mod where I have reduced the brightness quite a bit and the contrast to a lesser extent and then used the "burn" tool to bring out some detail in the youngster's clothing and face. I've also tried to emphasise the reflected face - an excellent inclusion in your image. Reducing the brightness has, of course, deepened the shadows to some extent .
Blues and yellows always seem to complement each other and here they have contributed to a wonderfully cheerful scene reminding us of warm summer days, so I enjoy it as it is. Having said that, the suggestions are interesting and the mods are very attractive alternatives - Mrs WB's square crops are always worth a look and this one is paricularly effective ( Yes, a cheque would be fine Moira ! )
A dramatic shot with nice composition and some interesting observations by the critique members.
A pleasing, restful scene which I think is made even better with the horizon levelled.
I like the composition particularly and note the comments in the other critiques.
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.
