Mirror Image

Mirror ImageA touch over-processed for me Mike. The colours just don't look right and the sky is full of noise.

Pierhead, Liverpool, Merseyside at TwilightHi Andrew, I have done a mod which has basically taken the role of reducing the noise in the sky ( would be easier from the raw file) I have lifted the detail on the Liver Building and put a little punch into the left hand wall to make the lead-in more eye catching.

Salford Quays 11pm

Salford Quays 11pmComposition works well. Following on from the previous comment you could either put a grad over the bright part of the image or take a series of different exposures and blend them together. A much better image would have been to to shoot while there was some light left in the sky, this can vary, but a guide would be to shoot about thirty mins after sunset.

TOWER BRIDGEHas all the elements with a good lead-in and balanced composition It could be improved with a straighten on the bridge and a run thru a noise reduction program.

City Lights

City LightsTwo things that I would suggest, Lin, is to use a aperture of around f8 -f16 this would allow more of the scene to be in focus. The aperture you have used here has thrown the foreground out of focus. The second would be to take the shot about 30 minutes after sunset to retain the colour in the sky.

Echo of Summer

Echo of SummerThats a cracking sky you caught there Bill.
For me the foreground is a touch too much, I find myself wanting to climb over the grasses to see the reflections in that bay. Maybe it's not possible, always hard to judge when your not there....

Lions Gate Bridge

Lions Gate BridgeI love this type of image, I also love Vancouver....

For me this was shot at just the right time to capture the wonderful colour still retained in the sky. The one thing that I find distracting is the section of black on the bottom left side, easy to criticise without been in that spot but would it of been possible to get closer to the waters edge and use one of those rocks to anchor the shot?

Tower Bridge Sunset From Butlers Wharf PenthouseShot a just the right time of night to capture that beautiful evening light, If I had to be critical the only thing I find distracting is the steel footbridge at the bottom of the frame, I know its a difficult shot to compose without this in the frame, I've stood there.
I've loaded a mod, see what you think!

I seem to be critical each time I comment on your images, so please don't be offended. I think this would have been a really strong image if you could of got a higher position above the breakwater, therefore giving a much stronger lead-in and also placing the lighthouse more on the thirds line... just a touch too tight to the left at the moment. Not sure what f stop this was taken on but the lighthouse looks sharp but the foreground looks quite soft, going more towards f22 with help with sharpness front to back.

Dawn at Llanberis

Dawn at LlanberisI like the shot John, and the mood you have caught. Looking at the image I wonder if there is a stronger composition to be had, always difficult when you not behind the camera. Would it of been possible to move to the left and put the V of the mountains more on the thirds and the tree more to the right, this could possibly screen the trees a touch and remove the rather dark area on the left.

I like the image it has a good strong foreground interest adding to a great lead in, my only criticism would be I find the white in the bottom right corner a distraction and secondly I think it would make for a stronger composition had the lighthouse been a little further in the frame, more on the thirds line.
