    Thanks everybody. That's what I thought Roy. Smile

  • Liberty Belle...

    My favourite image of the day.

  • Watch out...Watch out ...

    Excellent shot. I'm hopeless at getting bird action shots.

  • man and his horse

    I don't know if the weather was dull when you took this but it looks quite flat. Have you tried playing with the exposure and colour temperature? You may be surprised at how much you can make it jump out without looking over-processed.

  • Autumn in the Lake District

    Cracking reflections. Smile

  • It's a waiting game

    A good gritty image with well used limited depth of field. The almost central positioning of the couple give a feeling of solitude but as if something is about to happen.

    Excellent stuff.

  • Sparrow

    Well done getting down to its level. This may benefit from a little more sharpening and lifting of the shadows (or of course it could be just my eyes/monitor).

  • Sandbanks Marker

    This is (to paraphrase a well known saying) a photo of 2 halves. The bottom 2/3 has lovely restful tones and good light but I find the ribbed effect in the clouds grabs the eye and detracts from the overall effect because it seems at odds with the sea. I'm not sure what has caused it (were they actually like that), but it may be worth experimenting with a healing brush or something to see whether the result adds anything to the image.

  • Enchanted Evening

    One of those shots which leads you in forever. Lovely light, good foreground interest and great gradually fading distant hills.

  • Morpeth - a walk along the riverside 2

    A good composition but for me it is just a smidgen over-processed. If it is an HDR it would be worth knocking down the strength a little.

    Of course this is a personal opinion and if you like it as it is that's what matters. Smile

  • Shining on Saltwick

    Excellent lighting and composition with just the right amount of water blur.

  • Up, Down and Around

    Thanks everybody.

  • Silly Sunday: Sassy, shaved

    I like the contrast between the sign and where she is looking, so may stories to imagine.

    • 2 Oct 2016 2:53PM
  • Chl÷e

    Lovely framing and light. Were you using a ring flash? There is a circular effect around her pupils which grabs the attention and in my opinion detracts from the photo. You could probably get rid of it with some careful healing brush work. Other than that a really nice shot of a good looking young lady.

  • Coquet Sunset

    Lovely pastel colours and calm water in this long exposure. You could possibly make it even stronger by cropping just to the right of the rightmost cloud halfway up the sky.

    • 2 Oct 2016 2:49PM
  • Pretty Orange

    I like the composition and, as you say, the orange is pretty. Maybe worth upping the exposure or the mid-tones to make the orange pop a bit.

  • Ms Magellan - Eidfjord

    I like the composition but the HDR processing is too strong for my liking. It looks as if you had quite a dull day and the strength of the HDR has left the ship looking grubby, plus there is a very noticable halo on the boundary between mountains and sky.

    Try increasing the exposure a little and using the colour picker white balance tool to help bring the white of the ship out better.

    Alternatively, if this was the effect you were after you have achieved it and it's just not my personal tastes. Smile

    Thanks Arnie and Rich

    I agree, it does.

  • Road

    Looks like the cover of a horror story. Smile

    Good composition and interesting treatment.

  • Incy Wincy....

    Love the title. Where was the light coming from, it almost looks like flash? It may be worth having a play with the tone curve on spidey, see if you can bring out a little more of the markings. Good shot though.

  • Island in the mist

    My kind of shot. Just level it up a little and hang it on your wall.

    • 1 Oct 2016 3:37PM
  • Wild Thang

    I'm not sure how you have captured/processed this but you have managed an almost super-realistic feel which I would love to be able to emulate.

    Best shot I've seen so far today.

  • You looking at me!!

    Great detail. As he was stationary you could have probably got away with a slower shutter speed/lower iso but that would have just made it even better. Smile

  • This old House and Car...

    Hi Petra

    I love old farm machinery and barns. Robbie and I found a wonderful old tractor by a tree in Kentmere. You've done a good job of processing this, stopped short of overcooking it.

  • Going nowhere

    There is so much clutter in the scene I think you may need to use a limited depth of field to bring out the anchor more. Also a little off the left to reduce distractions and perhaps increase the sharpening and/or contrast a touch on the anchor. If you use Lightroom the Clarity slider may be your friend, or the Punch preset.

  • Bedworth Almshouses

    Good colours and contrast and the verticals are well controlled.

    • 1 Oct 2016 3:25PM
  • Yello rapsody2

    Good colours and composition. I know to my cost how difficult it is to get sharp photos of butterflies. Smile

  • St Paul's Church in Rusland , Cumbria

    Good overall composition. As you have not quite got the top of the mast in frame it may be worth healing it out. I actually think the shot is strong enough to bear slightly more of an S tone curve, to increase the detail further.

  • Mercury falls

    Lovely soothing and imaginative image, I can imagine this hanging on a bedroom wall.
