Just Grass.....

Just Grass.....There's some lovely detail here. Can I offer some critique? There are two things here that I have done myself and have nagged me later. Firstly, the grass is touching the frame in three places. The stem in bottom right is to be expected, but personally I find the ears touching the frame bottom and left distracts my eye. Also there is something bright in the image in the bottom right quadrant. Although out of focus it is bright and so reduces the contrast of the light-coloured grass. The background in the upper left quadrant is perfect by comparison.

Hope that hasn't offended. I love grass shots but they have delighted and frustrated me when attempting them in the past.

Water and Talc

Water and TalcIt's already been said - it's art if you say so.

This image for me though is quite literally surgical. As it stands, for me it sits between two extremes in my mind. It's way too clean for normal gear - the needle isn't bent, the spoon isn't rusty for example. But then, is it just the Trainspotting crowd who do coke and heroin? Nope. What about exploring the contrast between the shiny world of the high-flier and the grubby secret habit? That's what springs to mind for me here.

I know an IT contractor who worked briefly in New York. Day One was at the plush offices, view over the Park, mega-expensive and classy everything. Then he went to the loo and found the place looked like the inside of a flour factory - there were dregs of white stuff lying everywhere, like it was nothing. He found the contrast quite a shock.

Something to play with?

Garden portrait

Garden portraitYou didn't say if you were willing to accept suggestions or not, so I hope this doesn't offend. While it is a good image I find the curve of the seat behind distracting. Also...and I'm treading carefully here...your wife is clearly a beautiful woman. Her skin and complexion (freckles) are lovely and deserve more attention. May I suggest a tighter crop and larger image?

Still a nice shot though and I hope you won't be upset with my comments! Smile
