St Mary's Burham, Kent from the road, V3

St Mary's Burham, Kent from the road, V3 by Nikonuser1

Nicely done dark image. Some detail apparent even in the darkest areas. I think a little boost in contrast might improve it. Some moire appearing in the roof tiles on viewing the larger image, but that would probably disappear on printing, with careful attention to print size? I'm wondering about the lighting. The topmost branches of the trees on both sides look like they have a little bit of haloing, but I'm not totally convinced that this image has been tonemapped. The border effect is very nicely carried out.


B&W by Nikonuser1

Sorry to be at odds with all the previous comments, but I think it's too dark. The shadow areas are completely blocked out and devoid of any detail. I find it difficult to look at.

Old Steamer No. 9225 by JackAllTog

I'm not fond of colour popping (or whatever name you know it by !Smile) but it works fairly well here. I like how the effect is subdued nearest to the driver. I'm thinking you made a selection and reduced the saturation, as opposed to applying a desaturation gradient? I also would agree with others who suggested a blur on the background. Good shot and good processing. Well done.

Slaters Bridge,Little Langdale. by Niknut

Good composition, improved by the sepia toning. I like the diagonals created by the stream and by the reflection of the bridge. My only nitpick would be that the top of the tree is cropped out, but fitting it all in may have disturbed the composition. Smile

Field mouse on wild oats

Beautiful image, well caught!

La Primavera

La Primavera by DavidFiscaleanu

Beautiful composition and very well created technically. The jarring note (!) no pun intended, is that the bow doesn't look to be square to the strings, which would produce an ear shattering scrape. Maybe it's a question of angles, but it just doesn't look right. I am open to correction Smile.

a quiet moment

I think you've done a very good job in difficult lighting conditions. The exposure couldn't be faulted. Have you seen the series of orphaned apes which appeared 3 or 4 years ago? Can't remember the photographer's name. This reminds me of his work.

Claire with her Numchucks by PennylanePhotographic

Looks like a fun shot. I thought they're called nunchucks? Watched a 6'3" giant doing a workout with them on Ardglass pier a few years ago. I still remember the beautiful indescribable sound when he missed a catch and whopped hisself round the back of the head. Talk about the sound of willow on leather! I gave him a hand to get back on his feet, and he had the good grace to admit that he screwed up big time. Turned out he was a social worker taking his scrotes out for the day to the seaside. Going by the giggles, the scrotes all had a good time!

Two occasions when you don't get drunk:
1. Your wedding day. Her family will you have taped as a gobshite for evermore.
2. Your daughter's wedding day. Everybody will have you taped as a gobshite for evermore, including your daughter.
