Bembridge Lifeboat Station

Bembridge Lifeboat Station by Juliee

Very nice - well processed.

However, it would be nice to see a crop with the balance switched the other way around meaning the majority of the photo is taken up by the bridge rather than the reflection. The reason I say this is that I don't think the foreground interest / reflection doesn't feel strong or doesn't hold my interest as much the bridge.

Still good find.


London Eye Panorama

London Eye Panorama by petach

I actuall really like this photo - it's a very different take from how you normally see the eye. Well done in creating some unique (least in my opinion).

It would be cool to see a long exposure night see with this crop - perhaps something for another time.

Well done.


Lochinver Harbour

Lovely colours and abstract!

Ferris wheel

Ferris wheel by SisterPinkie

Nice - I would upload a mod but I'm no good at cloning either.

It looks to me that it could do with a slight increase in contrast too. Lovely angle though as the spokes (?) of the wheel really lead my eye into the picture!

Ice Patterns

Ice Patterns by robbiebox

Great textures and good spot.

I would love to see a black & white conversion of this - but then that is mainly because I'm partial to black & white right now... Going through a stage.

Through the stanchions

Through the stanchions by pauldavey

I like the repeating patterns but I can't help feel the angle of this photo could be better; perhaps something from lower to the ground and to the right. This way the repeating pillars would go from right to left taking your eye across the photo.

I think the main sticking point for me are the leaning pillars on the left and the ceiling. The white line of the water seems in the wrong place too..

Sorry to be critical but I thought I'd share my two cents as the location is quite the winner! Lastly, I would also think about a black & white conversion?



Monet movement

Monet movement by ComfortablyNumb

This is nice.

Really interested in the technique you used to produce this as it looks rather like a painting than a photo!?


Bridges in Amsterdam

Bridges in Amsterdam by ehjones

Agree with the above comment - It looks very washed out..


Boardwalk by eos3

Lovely shot and the sepia tone you've added to the photo really brings out the atmosphere. These long symmetrical leading line shots are always so pleasant to look at.

My only thought would be to have pointed the camera further down so that the horizon moves up and we get to see more of the planks on the bridge but thats just me being picky!

Great Shot,


Afternoon Siesta

Afternoon Siesta by devlin

It's cool - I often apply the antique effect in silver effects pro but I can never go through with it so kudos there. The great thing about the effect is how it centralises your focus!

Initially I didn't see the door and only the building behind. So I was pleasantly surprised when I realised it was a reflection - great spot!

The reflection really adds to the main subject!

I don't think it needs quite the amount of 'structure' and 'grain' in the photo but either way still looks good. Well done.



THE ANGER by youmightlikethis

A nice scene.

Prefer V1 however I do think the clouds are little too powerful. They occupy my eyes so much that I can't really look at the foreground, which is actually quite pleasant.


Marooned by AnnChown

I think everyone has already mentioned most things so I thought I'd upload a quick B&W conversion for you to compare.

Sometimes, when the photo has a very simple composition I like to convert to B&W. Always find it adds the extra impact. Feel free to disagree though..

The Three Sisters Katoomba  NSW

The Three Sisters Katoomba NSW by pillsbarlow

Not to be too critical but the mods are much better than the original. The initial photo, as Phill put (Grampy) is a little milky or washy and lacks the umph of the view.

The views great but I think a little saturation boost, increase of contrast can really bring out the photo.

Really like the third mod by paintman

Big Ben

Big Ben by ikukushliev

Have to agree with Graham's comments too. The Big Ben is just too close to the edge for comfort. I also don't think the sky adds or reflections add too much to the photo.

I've uploaded a mod that has been cropped into a landscape format. It concentrates the viewers attention much more on the Bridge and Big Ben however the initial critique still holds true.

An extra 25mm or turning the lens a couple more degrees would have resulted in a more pleasing photo.

My two cents


Rose by landscapepics

Lovely photo and great use of natural light. I feel the petals at the very top of the photo are unnecessary and bring the power of the photo down.

I've uploaded a square crop for you consideration.
