The Metal Detector

The Metal DetectorI really like this. The only alteration I'd make is to perhaps crop it at the bottom so that the line the person is on comes into the bottom right hand corner. This image is all about patterns and shapes and works really well.

High Seas

High SeasDramatic landscape. I'd be tempted to crop it a little at the bottom, but a good effort. Smile

Autumn in the air

Autumn in the airGlorious colours and sky, Mark. For me, it's the composition that lets it down as the eye doesn't quite know where to look. Maybe if you'd kept more space in front of the tree on the right and cropped out (or included more) of the tree on the left, it would have had a better balance. I think it might still work well cropped into a square image?Smile

Portchester Castle

Portchester CastleHi Mark - you've had a lot of sound advice on this. The only point I'd disagree with is the hanging branches. I feel the only reason they don't quite work is because, as mentioned by Annette, they touch the top of the tree in the background but I'd certainly include them in the frame. If you can find it on the internet, check out 'Monticello, Charlottesville, Virginia' by National Geographic photographer, Sam Abell which shows how intruding branches which most photographers would be tempted to clone out can make the image.

Alpine Poppies

Alpine PoppiesThis was a really difficult image to take (I know 'cos I tried!) & you've done well. The out of focus bit doesn't bother me - in fact, I think it could have taken an even wider aperture if your lens allows to throw the background out. What about a crop leaving just the 3 poppies and removing the labels and rock on the left hand side? Smile

birdie............

birdie............This image shows lots of promise but, sadly the bird is out of focus. Don't know the camera you're using but, if it allows you to take control, it may be worth using a faster ISO + shutter speed and a tripod also helps if the bird hasn't flown by the time you've set it up! The end of the branch is a bit distracting as well, but, hey, we can't choose where a bird decides to land....
Valli Flour Mill  Little India SingaporeNice shot. My only slight criticism would be that it would have been better if you could have caught the passerby just before he reached the stool and the window with the posters. Easy to be an armchair critic!
