    Nicely taken but watch the horizon or the lines that tell you it level.
    If your camera shows one use the in built level indicator unless you intend to have an image taken at an angle or tweak in post processing if needed.

  • tractor

    I see from the forums you want to know how to improve your images.

    With this one the issue is composition;
    the main subject is not fully in the picture, you have cut through one of the wheels.
    the bit of the bin/skip and the front of the van/truck is a distraction.

    If you move more to the right and composed including all of the tractor you will also have got the tree as the main background to your image rather than the people / houses.

    However the main thing with photography IMHO is that you get out there and enjoy what you do, also any comments are just opinions of the viewer.

    Thank you to all those who have commented. Unfortunately I could find a position which didn't include the wall and cropping it out didn't seem to work.

    Thanks for votes and comments, I combined a couple of PS tutorials techniques to create this one. I thought it created an interesting image hence sharing it.

  • top gone

    Hi Martin, did take this shot with the top cut off or is it a later crop?

    If a crop, would be interesting to see if you could clone out the top of the actual tower to match the reflection of its top in the puddle. Could use Gary's tutorial to replace the sky, assuming you have some clouds!

    Thanks for taking the time to comment. Being new to being more serious with my photography and with a new camera I am still getting to used to things.

    Your comments however are all very valid. I was also wondering how to rescue the picture, as I was aware of the burning out, haven't used dodge or burn before so will experiment to see what results I obtain. Once again Thanks.

    Just to say, the only talented lady here was the one who was fast asleep having her snout photographed, LOL !

  • A long way down!

    This photo makes you want to see what is just down around the corner to the left, but, then you don't want to as it's a flipping long way down!! Great shot, takes some nerve to be up there to get it.

  • A day in the life of...

    An unsual approach to frame the subject of 'life as seen by the bin', well done for trying something different.

    I like this one, well done with the framing using the bushes and the tree.

  • Autumn Reds

    Shows the autumn colours well, with a good depth of field. Things are more rusty brown down here on the Isle of Wight.

  • Edale Church

    Hi Folks,
    Thanks for comments.
    My intentions with the leaves was to frame the church and also to portray and emphasis the hidden / surrounded feeling. I guess it might work better if the leaves were out of focus, comments please.

    Like the colours in the sky, leading you 'magically' towards the castle in the distance.

    Hi Martin,

    like the colours in the surf, however do agree the horizon needs tweaking.

    Hi Martin,
    Well spotted and shot, those G&Ts were a bit water down!

  • In the skies above

    Hi,

    Thanks for comments.

    It is quite a tight crop from the original, I did unfortunatly miss the top of the trails when I took the shot. The festival site is probably 1 to 1.5 miles away from where I was stood in my back garden.

    I liked this shot as shows the movement and power of the planes.

    Instantly made me smile, wonderful photo.

  • got you

    Another great shot, Martin, just spotted that you have a new camera. Guess it was easier to get the timing right with the faster shutter speed?

    Is there another in this sequence, involving life boats and helicopters???

    Hi Martin,

    Great shot shows the power of the sea.
    I guess the next shot was them being swept away!!

    Hi tredz,
    think you might be thinking of Golden Hill Fort.
