Bald Eagle

Bald EagleThat's a cracking capture, Ryan m8. Great clarity and a very determined demeanour. More sunlight could have been as much a curse as a blessing and you've got great detail. Perhaps a slight brightness / levels boost in the eye area but that's arguable and I think you've captured a real gem.

Breaking In...

Breaking In...A lovely shot, Sean and they're not easy from here with those incredibly slippery oval rocks underfoot. The only minor edit I'd consider were it mine, would be to clone out the flare spots on the large rock that overlaps the headland on which Lilburn Tower is perched. Excellent photography.

Welsh Water

Welsh WaterAs Barney states, gorgeous colour, Jeanie and the composition is outstanding. the s bend of the rocks is a great lead and that pool on the lower rh third intersection is ideally positioned. An excellent shot!

Cardiff Bay.

Cardiff Bay.Look at your image. Top and bottom there's not much going on. Focus about a third of the way in - at say the foot of the mooring frame in order to maximise front to back sharpness. Our eyes see more of a dynamic range than can be recorded on the dgital sensor and the photo will fall short of your recollection of the scene in harsh sunlight. Try to use the tog friendly hours around sunrise and sunset. Make sure the frame has no distractions and a clear focal point if possible. Distractions for me would be the thingy along the bottom left hand side of the frame, the dust bunny right of top centre and the con trail. In pp there are things that can improve the perception of the scene. A digital grad will strengthen a weak sky at the top while careful sharpening on a separate layer with the blending mode set to luminance and the opacity reduced to suit the image can work wonders. HTH.

Startpoint 5

Startpoint 5I love that peninsular and sky. Great composition. Two minor points. There's a tiny dust bunny directly above the highest peak. Also, if I was completely, honest i'd say that the foreground appears as if the contrast / saturation has been pushed a bit hard. This draws my eye back to it and away from the sublinme top half of your image.

Off Camera

Off CameraExcellent shot and still life arrangement. For me, the only thing letting this down ever so slightly is the background. I'd clone out the nail hole in the slate and would be tempted to apply some gaussian blur to the slates too to soften them ever so slightly - just a few thoughts, mind from a landscaper who really knows very little about such shots.

Shelter Rock

Shelter RockLike all your images this is a cracker, Andy. It's a small, easily fixable point but there's a visible halo around the rock probably a side effect of sharpening for the web.

Chaffinch

ChaffinchA fabulous image. The Chaffinch has great separation and clarity. The background is very complimentary and detailed enough to provide good context.

Cove

CoveWow. The cloud shapes almost mirror the rock formations and therefore the 50 /50 compositional split works for me. Great light and colour too. Does the horizon need a slight anti-clockwise rotation?
Excellent work.
