    Lovely shot. Agree about the fg, but to be honest it doesn't matter because the colours are so strong,

    Fantastic! I'm struggling to find suggestions for improvement, which is new for me!

    It's a pity the focus hasn't made the eyes as sharp as they could be, but it's still a lovely shot!

    Nice, but could do with lightening slightly i think,

  • Swan Pool

    It's a lovely photo. Here are a couple of suggestions:
    I think it would work even better if you'd taken it at a lower angle, and really got down to the swan's level.
    Also, you've lost a bit of detail in the feathers because it's slightly over-exposed. Overall a good photo tho,

    Nice shot - like the fact the rest of the photo is blurred apart from the Kenwood logo.

    Nice shot, you've captured everyone's expressions & the general atmosphere very well. Doesn't everyone look happy!

    Lovely colours, but the white burn out is a bit too distracting for me. Looks beautiful though!

    Brings back memories! Agree with r33 - dark enough for all the lights to be on, but you still get good texture from the sky. Great shot!

    A bit too light - you could boost the contrast a bit more and make the most of the sun rays through the clouds. Also I'm not a massive fan of the wonky horizon - intentional or not!
