    Very intriguing image. I like the lighting.

    I would try to reduce the highlight reflection on the box to balance out the overall context.

    Good image

    Great colours. I just find the verticals very odd to view.

    I usually really enjoy your uploads. For some reason this just looks false to me. It is like a cut n shut where you have put random heads onto bodies for some reason.

    Obviously it is something that has happened during post processing. Whatever it is has just gone a tad too far as though though the heads don't belong to the bodies.

    Apologies for not being more specific. I know you are good at image manipulation during processing and therefore i can't really offer any suggestions for improvement. I can only offer what i see.

    No offense intended.

    A few points to consider:

    1) You have used shutter priority and set it at 1/320 sec. For fast action it is usually better to use in the region of 1/1000 to freeze the shot (unless you want to make use of motion blur)

    2) It looks as though the focus point hasn't picked up on the surfer. You can see the water droplets are quite sharp but the surfer isn't. If you weren't using AF-C (continuous focus) then this is the setting you would need to continually track the motion of the surfer.

    3) The surfer is surfing out of the frame. The general consensus is that is better to have room for the surfer (car, animal, athlete etc) to move into.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    I really like this image but for some reason it seems slightly weighted towards the left. Maybe the image needs a small tweak clockwise to level the top of the building. That said, it may just be my eyes.

    Good shot.

    Hi Billy,

    Agree 100% with all of Nick's points.

    I generally don't find "green land-scapey" type images particularly interesting unless they are really special. Other people may love them. However, if you can think of a photograph as a framing of different shapes and colours then imagine what this image would look like with a main focal point such as an old church / barn / gate. It would turn the image into a really interesting one. Obviously not possible in this instance but maybe something to consider when looking for that special one.

    Keep on snapping as its the only way we can improve and learn together.

    All the best,

    Alan

    Unfortunately you appear to have a distraction in the background. It would be better perhaps if you cloned out the poor quality electrical retail store to the left hand side of the fountain. GrinTongueWink
