Great Yarmouth

Great YarmouthNice Photo

I love the symmetry of the photograph but I would crop the photo a little round the foreground to make it a little more symmetrical, saying that, the walker to the left would of broken up the symmetry nicely if he was in-between lampposts but his back is too close to the lamppost so I cut him out. I also rotated it very slightly anti-clockwise.

I'm not overly taken by the colour of the street lights and the orange glow they throw over everything. I thought B&W may help with this and I loaded up a mod in B&W. This lost the lovely sparkly effect of the lights, so I used a history brush tool to bring the sparkly lights back in.

Hope you like the mod, I enjoyed playing with this photo, Thankyou!

Waters edge again

Waters edge againOhh, I definately like this mod compared to the other shot. The moon is very dramatic and even's up the weight of the image.

My only pickup would be the shadow of the dude walking on the beach. It wouldn't be in that position, it would be more sweeping to the left with the position of the moon BUT thats just me being a picky cantankerous old git! If I paid more attension to my own images, I too could produce some stunning images like this one!Wink

Snowy Egret in Mallorca

Snowy Egret in MallorcaGreat photo but I have to agree with csurry on the shutter speed.

To 'believe' the bird is flying and landing on water, you need a slight movement of the wings or what would of been really good, would be water from the birds feet spraying up as it lands. The viewer 'needs' to see some movement or they could think it's just hanging in mid air.

As for the colour, I think it's pretty spot on. We all know a bird would never be really 'white' and I love the green tinge to its feet.

The focus is also spot on, people always tell me you need the eyes in focus and you have done exactly that!

Nice job

NZ MADEThis is my first 'critique' so please be gentle with my comments!(I did read the guide first!)

The three pinnule of the fern, that reach out towards the lens, are slightly out of focus as it reaches towards the lens and bends back towards the stem. If you were to manually focus on the closest part of the fern and used the aperture setting to bring the stem into focus, you would catch the whole of the pinule in focus and then the DOF would soften the background. This would bring out the whole side of the fern sharper without needing to digitally manipulate/ sharpen the image as much.

To manipulate the image, I would also crop the image at an angle and use a frame. Those reds on the stem would also look really good and contrast the green of the background if they were modded slightly with the colour curves to stand out more.

I hope my first critique also helps!
