Danielle

DanielleI guess nipples don't mean that much. The first two are excellent. The lighting is super. The graduated focus lends a real softness and her direct gaze shows she is at ease. Thanks for the pose ideas. You let her shine. Well done!! TG

Crane . Heron

Crane . HeronGreat pose and direct look. I wonder if the ISO was reduced from 400 to 100 and shutter speed up from 300 to 800 would darken things and enrich colour? This then is a classy ultra white portrait of a sexy heron. TG

Squirrel

SquirrelNice image yet it can be stronger if cropped much closer. Say, bringing the tail to within a half inch of the right frame and proportional on all sides? TG

Squirrel monkey

Squirrel monkeyReligious little monkey eh?... with his hands crossed. This is a lovely portrait and you can make it 100% by cropping the FG half way up to those crossed hands. Hope we are still friends. TG

Madrid

MadridI wonder why some viewers failed to vote? Moving to the right to avoid the hedge is impossible. That would move the lamps over the building. They belong against the sky. Adding light to the dark hedge seems the only real adjustment for this otherwise super image. TG

Confined to the memories

Confined to the memoriesA little too bright for the dark stone mood of this place. I would be careful about making any headstone text directly public. Better to mention dates and a name or two in the photo details. Composition is pretty good here, just dial down the light a bit. TG

sunrise to remember

sunrise to rememberThis is a pleasing and well thought out image. The drained drinking glass and the super arrangement and the level horizon, [proving you are not under the influence], all work to provide a satisfying story result. TG

Light and Shadows

Light and ShadowsNow that I have had time to stew about this, there seems to be a thing the pros do here. You want that highlighted cloud and the backlight so I think the big equipment guys would place two or three slave flash or floods in the grass on this side to light up the church. TG

wish the rain would stop

wish the rain would stopThis is an excellent portrait idea. Although taken in dull flat lighting, this would be good to see again, exact same angle, but in warn sunset light across the relief of the wall and your model. Only this time lighting will be tricky and your model will be required to have a genuine smile to reflect the warm light. Not so easy. TG

keeping out of the rain

keeping out of the rainLooks like you have plenty of fine detail there. I suspect ISO 800 with a 7D would allow a 1/3rd crop from the right side. That would still leave the best part of Mum's wing and bring the little one closer. Comp would be improved with tiny at 1/3rd and not at bullseye position. Trim from top for format. TG

*****

*****A classic right from the thumbnail. Only suggestion is crop the upper overhead part 2/3rds from top. That way it's not so heavy and is a bit like a tam. Is there a little more neck to slide down a bit? I like this very much. TG

Isola San Giulio

Isola San GiulioThe sky is nothing here. You can lose it and crop 20% on all four sides for a better image and still have good composition. There is a photo within a photo and it is really beautiful too. TG

the castle

the castleTwo steps up for more castle and a thin slice of sky, plus thin the branches 50% and in dawn or evening cross light, this will work! TG

Fulton's Crab House

Fulton's Crab HouseFollowing Phil's lead, I would suggest 2/3rds Fulton's and water and less sky.

One more thing. The balance items on the right are a bit too complex. How would a crop on the right to the first of those five floats do?

That way you have the speed boat and wharf and no mystery stuff. TG

The old Lock House

The old Lock HouseOne of the better locks images of late. That's quite a black hole right of the house. Could you have aimed a few degrees left? There may have been something there to prevent that, I realize.
A little more canal would be nice, bringing the right frame up to the house and losing that black area. TG

Bank Hall - Tarlton

Bank Hall - TarltonTwo things...[1] Crop both left and right. Left to near the building. You will still have ample tree suggestions there. On the right to between the chimney and peaked roof. No need for upper tree presence on the right. These crops will reduce the plain part of the sky by half and bring your main interest forward.

[2] That's a late evening sky. For proper lighting you may have to revisit and take images in early morning light. Hope you don't live too far away.

These monuments to history that you have so many of, [and we have few of], are a rich storehouse of great potential images. I have seen whole masterpieces here on ePzine and a number of parts like stairways, doorways, windows and frames, and towers, All of them are rich with texture, history and good design. Lucky you! TG

Stern Goose

Stern GooseA powerful and well composed image. Could use a little easing off of the brightness though. Thumbs up from me. TG

Cambridge, Ontario, Canada

Cambridge, Ontario, CanadaThere are many places along canals that still have this 'old Ontario look' This is really two images in one. The Greystone and clock tower, [Vertical crop just right of the yellow],
Is a beautiful subject in itself. Especiallyj in long light for feature relief.

The industrial red brick and grey blocks are a separate subject. Red brick at sunset can be dynomite. TG

Glorious Scotland

Glorious ScotlandFirst I like this very much. Dead center gives it a doc. or record flavour. Middle placement top to bottom is good so as to have not too much sky. Left to right though could be shifted rightwards. I don't want to see that little flat roof on the right horizon. I do want to see more of the tree and whatever else on the left. If the right border cut through the fence post in the bush, I think this could be more pleasing. TG
