bird by brrttpaul

Looks very small in the frame and very central. If faced with a small subject try to frame it so that it becomes a vital element in an otherwise bigger picture. Here, maybe make the tree your main subject with the little bird as a sub plot in it. By placing the bird in a central position you are forcing our eye to the middle of the screen and asking us to ignore all else.

Horse races 2

Horse races 2 by eljapa

I'm with Martin here. The background's horrendous but the focus on the horses is what makes this shot.

Derry's Walls

Derry's Walls by Declanworld

A terrific photograph. Perfect composition and with snow flakes too, just lovely.

Great tit

Great tit by Steve_S

Bird is a good size in the frame w/o being too big. Only thing that I don't like is the light fall-off on the branch below the tail, but that's not in your control.

Mossy Oak, it's a 1D4

Glen Clova

Glen Clova by minack

A good solid composition. Maybe let down a little by the insipid looking sky. A Graduated filter (1 stop or 1.5 stop) would have balanced the exposure a bit better and would have given the top of the frame a sky the scene deserves.

Perthshire winter

Perthshire winter by unicorn17

No1 works best for me.
Good simple composition with nothing to distract.

House could do wityh beig a little further to the left to balance the composition into thirds a bit more, but on the whole I like it

Round"O" Magic

Round"O" Magic by Mavis

Love the setting and you've done it a bit of justice too.

Crop isn't to my taste, maybe because I feel it's squeezing the tree a bit and also because it splits the image in half vertically. Light hitting the righthand side is beautiful, however the left hand side is being left a little in the shade.

Formby Point

Formby Point by newy17

Underexposed by a stop or so, probably as a result of shooting on a program mode with auto exposure.
Not hugely keen on the messy path in front of us, had it been virgin snow then it would have had more impact. Sky is interesting, but the hedge between the bridge and the sky is acting as a good barrier to the best part of the shot.


Snow Angel

Snow Angel by ChristieleePhotography

Feels cold from here.
Would have liked it better with a very central composition to include all of the feet and none of the messy snow above


sheep by VIVIEN_R

Oh dear!
Foreground fence is not helping the cause here.
With sheep, try to get them back lit so that there's a nice play of light around the edge of the wool. In flat light like this they really don't come alive at all

The Pogues

Bloody shame the mic is covering his right eye. Great band with great stories


Focus by BobHPhotos

Apart from the cars, it reminds me of the feel of Ford adverts in the early 80s. Very nice

Foggy Road

Foggy Road by sico88

You've got some great lead in lines to work with here, the path and the road.
Only trouble is that they lead us to the middle of the photo where there is nothing happening. The pole on the right is a total distraction.

If you had positioned yourself to get the path and the road to intersect on the top right third of the frame, with maybe a pole there then it would have tied all your elements together in a tidier parcel.

Foreground is out of focus and is a distraction, had you used a smaller aperture you would have rendered it more acceptably in focus and as such it would have been more of an interest (texture of grass) than a fuzzy lump

Keep at it though


Lassie by Paul_cats

Background looks odd in this one. Have you cloned out anything?
Dog's eyes could do with a bit of light to make them stand out a little more.
Liking the head tilt.


Barn by Paintman

Nicely taken
Sky really emphasises the barn

The Daily Grind #2

The Daily Grind #2 by tony64

Must say that I do like this, but the title really does not suit it.
Maybe it's because the surroundings don't resonate with a work stereotype

To me it looks more like a debt collector or a hitman walking away from a job done.
