From the shadows

From the shadows by michaeljohn1955

Lovely portrait, could have done with the focus on the eyes rather than the end of the nose to make it perfect.

Glastonbury Dawn

Glastonbury Dawn by lesvictor

I like this, but I do feel the image would benefit from cropping. There's a lot of empty sky up top and blank foreground. The tree to the left is distracting to me, too. I'd try cropping to make the horizon along the top third of your image, as you'd retain the colours of the sky and the bottom of the tree line along the bottom third of the image. Maybe boost contrast and saturation just a little too?

You might want to work on reducing your negative space?

Wise Old Dog

Wise Old Dog by Samsterhamster

Geoff has good advice, I'd also throw in a suggestion to look at what's NOT in the photo, sometimes negative space, i.e. a part of the photo with nothing in, can be very effective at drawing attention to the rest of the image. I'd have placed the dog on the left of the frame and had an empty space to his right given the direction of his eyes.
Otherwise enjoy, especially the camera you've chosen, I've had my 550 for 3 years now and still surprises me occasionally. Invest in some good glass when you can, makes a WORLD of difference.

Colour Wash

Colour Wash by John_Horner

I like that there's still detail in the water rather than the whitewashed ghosting!


Gull by pp1

Hmm, you need to look where your light source is, the combined images don't match here. The bird is lit from below right, whilst the light source in the picture suggests above left. Dropping new objects in you need to look for this, I've done it a number of times myself! Also the selection of the bird is a little rough, especially around the tail. There's a really good plug in from OnOne which is much better at selecting objects than the standard CS fare, might help with the outline of your bird?
Keep plugging away though, for a first effort this is pretty good, all said and done!

Very good use of DOF, love it.

Beautiful detail!

Manchester City Centre..

Manchester City Centre.. by szlatoszlavek

Hmm, I think your subject is lost in the bright window display, maybe a B&W background with a colour pedestrian would work better?


Nash by J_Tom

Perfect timing to get the swirl effect!

Whitby from the West Cliff

Whitby from the West Cliff by phil99

Generally like the idea and the subject, needs sharpening to my eye though.

Dover at night

Dover at night by jeffbo

I like the idea, the large dark areas detract from it for me. The light trails make a great shape as they go around the roundabout, maybe a portrait orientated tighter crop would improve this?

Stob Dearg Light II

Stob Dearg Light II by Emu72

Very impressive, a wonderful combination of unusual foreground and well lit background!

Snow Queen

Snow Queen by Leolian

Black and white good, try bumping the contrast a little and maybe using the brush tool on light room to dodge the cat's eyes. I'd look at a tighter crop to to focus on the cat more.

Frosted Tree

Frosted Tree by kojak

Awesome, great depth of colour in the sky while keeping the snow white. Polariser?

Watching the Sunset

Watching the Sunset by guitarman74uk

Nice idea, for what it's worth I'd crop the bottom left corner out and lose a little sky, especially the distracting branches upper left. running it through lightroom or photoshop to get rid of the fringing probably would crisp up the edges too?
