    Hey John, thanks again for your comments.

    You do have a good eye. This was my last shoot before I got my 4 stop soft grad filter. As a result I shot it with my 10 stop ND filter, hence I had too push the foreground with shadows and exposure to get it to work. I am interested to see how it might print, don't think it will enlarge very well. I might go back and process it again from scratch.

    The sky is not blended. Your comment on cropping is interesting as i also shot it in portrait format which I like. Can I post it as a mod?

    Thanks again

    David

    Hi all, thanks for taking time to look and comment on my images.

    Norm I like your idea for the mod, might go and play with that myself

    Dudler, yes I have another 6 months in the course so I might experiment with their studio lights and decide on my genre. At the moment I am enjoying my seascapes, I will post a few and hopefully you will give me your valued thoughts.

    regards

    Hi Moira,
    I knew i was on the limit with my 200 lens. I used it because it is considerably sharper than my 24-105 lens.

    Also gave me a little distance to the model who had not modelled before. Trying to keep her comfortable.

    And yes I had my tripod there, in hindsight I should have used it. I also had a reflector with me . Think I got caught up in the excitement of the space and the light. The soft light from the left was because they had painted some columns white. A bonus I did not see until pp.

    thanks again for your support

    Hi, you guys are awesome. These images will be printed and mounted for my final exhibition, as a result, your comments and suggestions are going to be put to good use.

    Moira - thanks for your praise, I feel that I have improved a lot this 6 months. The one thing college has done is get me out with my camera shooting. Often challenging and pushing my skill base.

    Willie - thanks for the Photoshop tip, my major folio is long exposure seascapes. The new sharpening filter should help me there as well.

    John - I had my tripod with me, idiot. I was conscious of a depth of field issue trying to keep the eyes and wound in focus. I agree there is a problem with my focus . I have a 24-105 lens which might have helped the shake, however, the 200 is so much sharper. A lesson learned.

    thanks again for your time and input
