ModelSuch a pretty lady and a lovely portrait of her! I really like the lighting and the colours/toning is perfect in my opinion.

I hope you don't mind me saying but although I admire the wood/carving, I would rather see more of the lady, perhaps including all of her arm/bend of the elbow? perhaps that wasn't possible though.. She is the focus of the picture but I'm just being lead out of the image by all that above. I know I could not take a portrait quite as beautiful, it's just a small composition point for me that's al.

St Paul's Cathedral

St Paul's CathedralI really like this and wish it were mine too. It's fine as is but I'd just like a little more contrast so have done a mod seeing as you kindly allowed. I just added a little to the yellow and red saturation and adjusted the mid contrast in shadow highlights and small curve adjustment. I like the inclusion of the figure, good timing Smile

The second mod is mine, doesn't say who it's by on my PC?

Lakeland stream

Lakeland streamPete, this is beautifully done, the comp works well leading the eye through the image by the flow and fall of the water. The exposure for the water is effective too and I really like the light coming through at the back - enchanting!

NZI have to say that even after reading Moira's wonderful description/thoughts re the image, myself I still don't get it.. I'm just seeing what looks like a vest or grey underpants I think? Hmm block of flats in the background (could be rich/poor divide) - my minds working on it but it's not happening for me as yet - I'll come back for another look later and see if my thoughts change. My congrat's however for your HC , it's always good to think outside the box! Hope you don't mind my honest opinion?

Letters From India..

Letters From India..Simon, you don't post that often but boy when you do!!! This is an excellent portrait, I like the subtle colour of his turban and the smoke creating quite a mood here - well done, definately deserves more attention!

Choir seating

Choir seatingSome lovely warm tones here Caleb and well exposed for - again some beautiful architecture! The little bit of white light to the top left side is slightly distracting but I can see that a tighter crop might loose the balance to the shot, perhaps clone it out? just a thought Smile

Fernilee Reservoir

Fernilee ReservoirHi Gareth, it may have been a dull and windy day but you have made the best of the conditions! I think your choice of composition works really well here, I like that diagonal in the fg and the tower is perfectly placed in the frame. Perhaps a small boost in contrast and colour would give it a little more punch. I've done a mod doing just that - not necessarily any better but just a few tweaks I would have done had it been mine Smile

JettyI like this, the perspective is good and the sky colour is gorgeous as are the whispy clouds! You've done well with the 10-20mm (love that lens) however, perhaps if you had chosen a lower angle, you may have got more detail out of the stonework jetty - just an idea though Smile

old and new

old and newWhat a lovely location, I like how you have captured the boat in front of the castle - my two favourite subjects Smile For me the composition needs to be a little tighter, so just a bit of a crop top and bottom would focus more on the subject. I have done a mod where I've cropped a little, used Shadow/highlights in PS to bring out a little more detail and have also added some more contrast - just a variation - not necessarily better Smile

Bodiam Castle

Bodiam CastleHi Jeff - I use photoshop CS3 and to correct the verticals use: filter, distort, lens correction and then use the horizontal and vertical sliders to get the correct perspective in the grid given. You did well to get the whole of the castle in shot and I agree it's difficult to get all of the reflection in from that viewpoint! I think that a little more contrast would help here and as Julie suggested, perhaps a little less sky?

A meet at Bodiam - definately Smile

1949 Allard L Type

1949 Allard L TypeHi Mike, I like this one - great looking classic! The hdr's ok, though perhaps just a little more contrast for me - might give it a little more punch? I don't mind the fence post, but I would try a closer crop all round to concentrate more on the car.

Just Married

Just MarriedAhh what a happy couple, they look so young Smile You asked for thoughts Keith so mine are, for what they're worth - I would of cropped in closer all round to focus more on the couple, adjust levels, up the contrast and saturation a little and finaly curves and sharpen. I am sure there will be others who can offer much better advice re layers and masks etc but I haven't got there myself yet Wink Most importantly, you have captured the happy expressions of the bride and groom well!

South Uist Barn

South Uist BarnThat's a great looking sky you've captured Tony along with some good detail on the wall and stonework of the barn. I feel that the image could do with just a little extra punch re saturation and contrast, done a mod for you. Maybe a different angle with less grass in the foreground might be more appealing but I like the use of the lead-in wall.

Old Museum

Old MuseumI really like the composition here to include the whole of the arch, the door and the wheel in the background. I think perhaps it's slightly over exposed as the detail on the back wall has been lost. Adding to the contrast and saturation and even changing the WB would in my opinion make for a more pleasing image. Looks like an interesting location however!
