Wonderful seascape Jeanie. I love the lighting on the rocks in the foreground. I feel as if I am 'right there' and could touch them. The effect of the swirling water is beautiful, leading my eye to the dark foreboding clouds and mountains in the distance. Magical!
Wishing you a happy New Year and looking forward to seeing more of your stunning images in 2013.

Surviving the Blizzard by tywanda46

Surviving the Blizzard

Hi Pam,
Thank you very much for your constructive critisism, which I will take on board and learn from. I have not been an active member of Ephotozine for a while (I intend to be in the future!) and forgot that I already had this image iin my gallery. and the one I uploaded was cropped to fit a 7x5" format for a card! Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Swans in Mist

Thank you for all your comments. There was no manipulation as far as colour tone. I had auto white balance set and when opened in CS3 it showed this blue hue. The only manipulation has been using levels, enhancing contrast, and sharpening.
I would also welcome any constructive comments and advice
Many thanks

cheeky monkey! by beachbumjoey

cheeky monkey!

For a beginner you are doing very well and cetainly have an 'eye' for a strong image. I love the monkey's expression. You have done an excellent job to focus on the eyes as this is the main focal point with portraiture photography. One small critique would be to wait until the monkey was looking directly at you so you could capture the relationship between you and your subject in a more powerful way.

You have done extremely well as a novice to capture this shot and keep the focus sharp. With more pracice you will be able to perfect your cloning technique.
You could add further impact to the shot by decreasing the depth of field, this would make the background more blurry and focus more on the windsurfer.
This could be achieved by using a lens with a longer focal length ie 400mm, also by opening the aperture as wide as possible
In photoshop this can be achieved by making a selection around the sail and the background and under 'filters' selecting 'blur' and then 'gausian'
Well done, as sports photography is a subject that many more experienced photographers find difficult!
