Winding road to Edale

Winding road to Edalelike the comp with the well placed sheep and the road leads you nicely to the inversion. i have done a mod. hope you approve.lesley

The Torbay Riviera 1

The Torbay Riviera 1like it. think i'd clone the part boat from the bottom edge.lesley

The Pump House

The Pump Houselike it. i think i'd be tempted to tone down the bright patches, you can select a bright but not burnt out area of sky and use the colour dropper on it, and then use a low opacity brush over the bright areas in the sky to tone it down alittle but keep it looking natural. lesley

Old Barn

Old Barni do agree about the fg wires. i had a go at at mod, and used the clone tool with the healing patch, taking a small section at a time and varying my selection, i selected around the wire and some sky set it to source and dragged the selection until the wire was hidden and deselected and moved along. at the pole i just used a small selection and choose replace to stop it picking up the dark patching of the pole. let me know if yiu'd like to see the mod. hope that you dont mind me taking liberties.lesley

Racing the storm

Racing the stormreally like the layers and mood in this. think you could squeeze out even more drama with a levels and curves adjustment. lesley

Under the Bridge

Under the Bridgefirstly i'm no expert but my opninion for what its worth. i like the comp using the driftwood. i think i'd have used a slightly lower viewpoint to give it more dominance. i think its worth cropping the oof fg sand. you could add a alittle more contrast, selectively sharpen the bridge and fg with a layer mask. a slight boost to the saturation, thats a very individual preference though. and i'd clone the bird. lesley Smile

Stoke Trister Church

Stoke Trister Churchi like the atmosphere. your tower is leaning to the right so i dont think youve got your pic horizontal easy to correct in PS.lesley

Lesser Redpoll

Lesser Redpolllovely detail and colour. think worth just cloning the bright patch top left.lesley

Palace of Westminster

Palace of Westminsterlike the blue tones, for me i'd prefer the perspective to be corrected. in PS control A - edit- transform-distort and pull the top corners out til the buildings are straight, then up alittle as youve spare sky and the pic will look abit squoshed by then. lesley

Goldfinch, Chaffinch and Raven

Goldfinch, Chaffinch and Ravenv1 is my fav.good detail in v1 and 2. v2 has some noise in the bg which using noise reduction on a seperate layer and masking out the bird and fg would reduce. think the 1.7 convertor on the camera may have pushed it past its optimum performance, but guess you are still experimenting to see what you can get from it. hope you are enjoying the new toy.lesley

A medley of small birds

A medley of small birdsi'm impressed with the quality. v1 and 2 i think are excellent and lovely and sharp. v3 is soft around the head but that might be cos he moved. v6 generally looks soft especially from mid wing to the tail. but i think this has alot of potential, for ease of carriage and use, hope you are pleased with the results. lesley

Message from the Lost

Message from the Lostlike the way the bottle balances the comp with the rock, and good water movement in the fg. but having looked large for me the pic is the lower 2/3rds with the light and gorgeous water movement. great idea.lesley

Open says me…..

Open says me…..hi sushil
if you want to you can extend your sky. first expand your canvass at the top, then using the rectangle tool select the top part of the sky. then copy and paste it onto a new layer, then use the move tool to move the new sky into position.then merge down. if like me you incorporated the top of the tower in your selection then clone it out. Then i just used the healing brush to run over the join line to smooth it. then cropped off the bottom of the water.hope this helps.lesley

Winding railings

Winding railingssome good points raised above. perhaps a higher viewpoint would show off the curve of the railings better. when taking the pic you really need either good light or a very moody sky. unfortunately this one has alot of grey.
I'm not sure how familiar you are with PS but there are some good tutorials on the site if you need guidance.lesley

Cats ready for the catch

Cats ready for the catchfor me the cats waiting for their supper makes a smashing picture, but they need to be the focus of the pic, so i've cropped to emphasise them and losing the distracting rock. also your horizon is abit off dipping to the right. if you get the chance i'd zoom in on them more to get better definition of the cats.lesley

my guitar gently weeps

my guitar gently weepsv2 for me. i wouldnt pass over a shoot for processing, i hate it! your selection with the dropper and fuzziness slider needs abit of modification as there are some remnants of the bg around the model, more noticeable around the head. I just used the clone tool set to mode lighten (on the top panel) with a hard brush and opacity 30% and went along the edge of the model, it didnt take long. think its worth masking back in the line of the stool as it gives a grounding for the model.lesley

milk crate

milk cratehi diana,do like the perspective of the 10-20 with close ups. you didnt mention how you adjusted your bg, i have done a mod with the description of how i did it, with PS theres loads of different ways of achieving the same result. I like what youve achieved, perhaps the skin tones are alittle harsh compared to the original, but it depends on the look that you are after. Youve certainly got the haughty look you were aiming for.lesley

Balesthink youve controlled the exposure well, and have a nice natural look. i've tried to enhance it alittle by using a neutral density grad filter, and increasing the saturation of the fg.
feel the comp is alittle biased to the left, in the 2nd mod i've flipped it and cropped slightly to put the horizon and tree on the thirds.just having a play.lesley

DIVORCElike the dof and texture. to me this is more a breakup than divorce with the type of ring and letter. as such works well.
perhaps for divorce the wedding band and engagement ring and even a torn wedding photo to add abit of spice.lesley

Sunrise over Flamborough Head

Sunrise over Flamborough Headlooks like youve received some good advice. like the colors and think the crop of the 1st mod works well, with the crop dont feel the need as much for more fg interest.lesley
