  • 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.

    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.

    Good colours and contrast and the verticals are well controlled.

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

    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.

  • Tynemouth Priory

    The sea looks good. Unfortunately the main subject, the priory, seems soft focus (unless it's my monitor). I suspect the focus point may have been slightly too close to you.

    Apologies if you already know this, but depth of field works 1/3 in front of the focal point and 2/3 beyond it. At f7.1 if you focus about half way up the frame the priory should come into focus.

    A nice countryside scene. The sky top right is a little burned out. If you are using Lightroom you could drop a diagonal grad on that corner to bring it down a little. Alternatively this may suit a letterbox crop, just to the top of the main tree on the left of frame.

    Hi Arnie. Good title, suits the image. The light is a little flat in this but maybe that suits the theme. Have you tried cropping out the bits of sky at the top?

    A lovely sharp image with a clean eye.

    I love evening reflections and you have done well with this one.

    A nice lump of rock. On my monitor there seems to be a blue tone, not sure if that is deliberate?

    I notice you were using a high iso, which has softened the detail a little. As far as I can see there is nothing moving, so you don't need a fast shutter speed. ISO100 would have been fine for this shot, that would have still given you a shutter speed of about 1/125.

    You've caught the sky nicely and the perspective really emphasises the monolithic quality of the rock.

    Works for me. You mowed the barley just right! Smile

    Other people see reasons to stay indoors, landscape photographers grab their cameras.

    Gorgeous! Love the shine on those rocks and the light is superb.

    Another old timer returns! I've just found my way back too.

    Great colours, not sure about the amount of sky. Maybe a letter box format would be worth a try?

    For me this epitomises 'Fine Art Nude', less is so often more. Lovely sensuous shot, great lighting.

    Hi Phil. Not sure why the exif didn't come through, maybe the LR settings have changed. I was shooting in aperture priority.

    I assume you mean the small blown areas on the beak and just under the throat. To be honest the light was changing so quickly as the tree moved in the wind that I decided there was little point using -EC. I have quite a ferw others where nothing is blown. I had meant to reduce the highlights a little in LR, but forgot. Sad.

    To be honest I'm just happy I managed to get it remotely in focus. Smile

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I really like this and think it is strong enough not to need the fingers in frame.

    Excellent shot. I would say more like 6-8 weeks late. Sad
