Hobbitdave is right about the camera tilt. It is easily corrected in Windows Live Photo Gallery by bringing up the edit window and clicking on the straighten button. The nice thing about that software is that it retains the original jpeg image just as if it was a raw file, so you can edit without fear.

I can see very little room for improvement here, and if voting were available on this image I would vote for it.

The only slight criticism I have is that the branches on the left, overlapping the boat, interfere with the shape of it and disturb its visual integrity. There is not a lot you could have done about that, of course. Perhaps a viewpoint more to the right might have helped, but that would have destroyed the relationship between the boat and the rising sun, so you would have lost the whole point of the composition. Cloning out those branches would have been fiendishly difficult and would have put the image into the fake category.

All in all, I think the improvements you have already made are as good as it gets.

Excellent technique and a pleasing image too. Well done.

Nice Ice

Makes a nice abstract. Just goes to show that even the worst weather has its positive side.

Sorry Kate, I can't agree. The framing provided by the branch is what makes this shot.

Not bad for November.

It may only be a hint but it makes the image.

Autumn Squirrel

Autumn Squirrel by Jenny-D

Like it. The alert pose and expression convey the idea that this animal is about to scamper away, giving the whole image a wonderfully dynamic feel.

I just cannot resist landscapes with water, especially when they are this good.

So Beautiful

So Beautiful by marshfam19

I often find swans technically difficult, with the white feathers burning out and negative exposure compensation ruining the background. The technique here is superb - you can almost count the feathers!

Europa 2

Europa 2 by colijohn

Nice, but it needs a few passengers in the foreground to give it scale.

Just taken a quick look as I'm pushed for time right now, but I intend to be back soon to enjoy these splendid images as they should be enjoyed - at leisure!

I see you desctibe yourself as a beginner. Some beginner! I have seen experienced photographers produce stuff not half as good as some of these imsges. You hsve a real talent - keep cultivating it.


Added Date: 27/01/2013 - 11:04 AM

As a Nottingham resident I find your portfolio very enjoyable. Keep up the good work.

Like you, I have been into photography for a long time. For years I was a diehard Exakta fsn but I am 100% digital now. It is not the equipment that makes the image, it is the photographer, as your imsges illustrate very well.

Barbara, I enjoy your portfolio no end. Do try and keep it up as much as you can even though your new job will be making demands on your time. Best of luck.


Added Date: 19/10/2012 - 9:05 PM

For a self-proclaimed newbie your standard is remarkable. Keep up the good work!


Added Date: 26/04/2011 - 11:03 PM

A splendid and varied portfolio. Keep up the good work and thanks for all your kind comments on my stuff.


Added Date: 06/01/2011 - 8:59 AM

A nice varied portfolio, I have enjoyed looking at it.

This is a very impressive PF indeed. I just wish I could produce landscapes like this, with wonderful vibrant colours and a real sense of openness and distance.

My only caveat concerns the water in some of the shots. Some people like to see running water looking like cotton wool. I am not one of them. I like to see water looking like water, and conveying the frantic sense of movement that is so characteristic of a waterfall. This kind of rendering just looks lifeless.

But I still like the PF and I intend to learn as much as I can from studying it. Great stuff!
