Daisy Ice

Daisy IceI have made a mod to your Ice Daisy Annette,A bit of sharpening,increasing the colour in P/S curves,and darkening the background to emphasise the ice.
A very well seen pic too and difficult to record in the circumstances no doubt.

Hello anybody there?

Hello anybody there?Hello Chris,I have made a mod of your charming daughter,what eyes!!
I reduced the flash intensity effect and taken out some of the shadows,reduced the red effect with a blue filter,and put a frame around.
Hope you approve.
First light Monsal Dale from Monsal HeadVery good composure Gavin,must have been great to be up there that early, you have caught the feel of the time of day.
My only critique is that your white balance needed tweaking in P/S to take the excessive green out of the grass in the valley without spoiling the sun hitting the hilltop and general feel of the time of day.

Shaugh Bridge Devon

Shaugh Bridge DevonI like your picture of Shaugh Bridge very much Diane, it captures the essence of Devon very well.
My only critique is that it needs a little more contrast to bring it alive. I have made a mod for you in which I used PS to enhance the colours. I used: image,adjustments,brightness/contrast to improve the pic.
Hope you approve.
Red Panda in the snow at chester zooI really like this shot Sylvia, you have caught it in a very playful mood,some of the highlights have burnt out but in my mod I have replaced them with a little texture,colour, and shadow/highlights in PS,plus some sharpening and a border.
Hope you approve.

chicken n bacon

chicken n baconReally like this pic Chris. You have captured humour,and timed your shot well. You have also got down to the the level of the action,well done,the exposure is spot on too,only the overall sharpness is a little suspect.
I have put a mod up for you to peruse,a little cropping,sharpening and fuzzing of the background in Photo-shop,and a border.

A very good first attempt.

on a wing

on a wingNice angle Keith, the idea is good,just missed the eye contact that's needed to make it a great shot.
I have uploaded a mod but unfortunately unable to do much to improve the pic. I feel the sharpness is lacking, movement in the wings due to too slow shutter speed. The overall lighting conditions on the day were not good I suspect and it shows in the lack of contrast. To help overcome this we can, next time choose a lower ISO setting -1/3.
Keep trying,you will get there.
Good luck.

Flowing Fence

Flowing FenceJohn, I agree there is a picture in there and I have tried to sort out my personal feeling of the best. As you will see I have cropped out a large piece of the right hand and the sky to concentrate the eye on the fence,
I have also cloned out a bit of the branch that was obscuring the fence in the distance.
The fence leads the eye nicely into the picture,with the sheep bringing the eye back again to the fence giving a nice interesting flow. I feel you concentrated (quite rightly) on the composition but not enough on the exposure (little over exposed 1 stop) and the focus point, as nothing is really sharp. Either that or you hand held the camera with too slow a shutter speed.
My advice is to go back again with your tripod and compose the scene again and pay special attention to exposure (using the camera's histogram to check for over/under exposure) and using a smallish aperture f11 say, focus on the nearest part of the fence in the foreground, that way you will have the foreground in focus and the depth of field given by the small aperture will take care of the rest.
Best of luck.

Meadow flowering

Meadow floweringA super delicate subject Zoki, handled very well,nice and sharp.
My only "bug" is the back ground is a little obtrusive (yellow flowers)
I have taken them out to show you the difference, plus a little cleaning up and darkening of the corners to hold the picture in.
Hope you approve.
Good luck with your hobby.

Dublin Reflection

Dublin ReflectionGood close-up Rick.
I felt it was a little too blue so took it out with warm-up photo filter.
And lightened it. Also put frame to hold picture in,
hope you approve.

Misty morning at the Ramparts

Misty morning at the RampartsA great setting David, and well caught. I have made a mod. for you,I felt the left hand side did not have anything of great interest and cropped it off. I liked the "bluey" feeling of the early morning,I lightened in Shadow/Highlight, and reduced the exposure slightly to emphasise the mist effect.
Hope you approve.

Solitary Man on the Penine Way

Solitary Man on the Penine WayMy first thoughts Andrew, are stop taking 'snaps' and start taking photographs.You have a perfectly good camera which is capable of high quality pictures. All you need do is look at the scene and decide what attracted you to it and then isolate it.In this case it was(I Suspect) the man. Make him your focal point by focusing on him to get him sharp,next use a small aperture,say f11 to get the rolling fields in reasonable sharpness. The sky,because it was very bright and the sun in a very difficult position try to get as least as possible in the frame. The crop by Dave Sumner works the best and is a good example. As for using Grads. at the moment they will only serve to confuse you,learn to control what you have now and graduate slowly. Lastly I always say 'use a tripod' it is the best aid to taking photographs
Trust this will be of use,enjoy your hobby.

Norwich Cathedral

Norwich CathedralI took one just like this some years ago, very difficult to get the perspective right.
I put your pic through PS curves to take out some of the red/orange cast in the building.

The Polm Bee

The Polm BeeI put the pic through PS to boost the colours a bit and a small crop, the sharpness was a little suspect so I sharpend it a tad. I finished with a bit of contrast boost.
I hope you think it's an improvment.
An overall nice composition on a very skittish subject.
