Whistling Sands, North Wales

Whistling Sands, North Wales by Art2105

A really lovely shot with beautiful lighting. I feel the foreground rock has a very interesting shape and intricate detail so, as an alternative presentation, I have cropped the image to concentrate more on that area. Also adjusted levels, horizon etc, but a very nice shot as it is.

Silbury Hill, taken from West kennet long barrow. by AlanWillis

I agree with Joan, most enjoyable scene to view and interesting crits and mods. Beyond that my only feeling was that there seemed to be a lean to the left, so I loaded a mod with 2.5 degree rotation clockwise which brings the top of Silbury Hill level. Could be just my eyes !
Nice work in any case



Chamois by Rado

An extaordinarily good shot which would be hard to improve on and congratulations on getting up there to take it. I'm with Paul re the plane idea !
But I have to say that Willie's mod is inspirational, as the portrait format gives an even greater sense of height and exposure to an already dramatic scene.



Mia by AndyWUK

A lovely model. Never having done any glamour photography I'm not in a position to offer much in the way of constructive critique, but one thing jars a little with me. The model's left thumb digs into her waist and creats a distracting fold of ( very nice! ) skin which, together with the sweep of the top of the dress. tends to create a confusion in this area. Having said that, if I could produce a shot half as good as this I would be very pleased !

Somewhere between V1 and V2 for me, just to be awkward ! When I saw the thumbnail I thought it was the limestone pavenent above Malham cove - just a matter of scale. There is an interesting little box on a short pole near the centre - any idea what it is ?
I share Willie's dislike of blue snow - to my eyes quite a lot of digital images benefit from a reduction in blue content, ( but varied from image to image of course )



Skye by MEH200

A very atmospheric shot which conveys the wild open nature of this area well.
I tried an alternative view with cropping at top, bottom and left hand side which has the stream in the foreground coming in from the bottom right corner and also produces a near panoramic format. Lightened the buildings on the island with the dodge tool and adjusted the colour slightly in levels.


Backlit at Welcombe

Backlit at Welcombe by JenRogers

Hello Jennie - what a wonderfully dramatic shot for your first post to the critique gallery - you have certainly set a very high standard !
Some very useful comments aboveand some interesting mods.
I've taken the liberty of doing a rather drastic mod just as an alternative view of this great scene, removing some of the bottom and sides to produce a square image with the sun more prominent. Also lightened the near rocks slighty - see what you think!


Inch Strand, Co. Kerry

Inch Strand, Co. Kerry by ladigit

A beautiful serene shot and lots of good comments and suggestions from members. I feel a little less blue brings a few more colours into play without losing the cold effect and an alternative crop is to lose much of the sky to bring the horizon to the upper third, creating a semi panoramic effect. I've posted a mod with these adjustments.



Candlelit by dudler

I certainly will !!

No misfortune on Cap Malheureux_Mauritius series 3 by Schweigan

What a lovely warm scene to liven up a cold frosty morning here in the UK ! Thanks for posting it Friedrich
I have tried a rather severe crop to remove some of the clutter on the right hand side and also tried to bring out some detail in the headland with the dodge tool. Just an alternative version of a very pleasant scene.


Ray of light

Ray of light by WimpyIskandar

I notice the technical points raised re softness and compression, but I find the image, as it is, quite delightful. The softness suits the subject well and the overall impression I get is of innocence and peace - lovely work.


Deutschland's Sunset

Deutschland's Sunset by mohanramyaa

I really get the sense of a bitterly cold sunset from this - excellent with only 2 mins to prepare ! I like it as it is but couldn't resist tinkering with it. Mainly tried lightening the foreground slightly with some slight cropping.



Bellevue by mohanramyaa

I like this a lot as it is but couldn't resist trying a mod. I thought you could lose some off the top and bottom so cropped to square and adjusted the verticals. Lightened the darker areas on the left a touch and sharpened very slightly.
Just an alternative take on an attractive scene.


She is the Dark

She is the Dark by nineteen68

The original is the best by far in my opinion and I take my hat off to both of you for braving the cold !
The right hand does look a tad awkward but not a major issue for me.

I see what you mean what a contrast. V1 is the one


Brecon Beacons

Brecon Beacons by KC51

The lighting has brought out the shapes of the mountains really well producing a fine landscape study - just needs levelling as Mike says The mono conversion looks fine to me but I'm no expert. Some of the other contribtors will be able to give you useful comments in that area.
