Hi everyone,
Welcome to my portfolio. As you can see I take an eclectic mix of subjects and genres, but just enjoy having fun with photography. All critique is welcomed. Thank you.

    And if you are interested, I cleaned this image up by removing the base completely and just left a subtle silhouette and then entered in our club comp in a panel competition. The judge found nothing good to say about it and gave it got bottom marks. While I can see it isn't to anyone's taste and I wouldn't expect it to win, but I was hoping for the judge to see some merit in it. Hey ho, maybe I should resubmit or enter in a BPE...

    Just in case you're interested at the local club Panel Competition this didn't really impress the judge. He said nothing about creativity or subject matter, he didn't say it made him think or liked the composition. All he said was the colour works but the subjects don't really relate to each other... he favoured photos of trains and birds. What can I say! Somewhat frustrated Smile

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I'll take all your suggestions on board and will probably have another attempt. I'd like it to be as good as I can make it and you have made some very valid points for improvement. I really appreciate your honesty and this is why I love Ephotozine! 🙂

    Thank you Mr Dudler, we.parked near the beach in town then walked across the bridge turning left onto the bank which, since the tide was out, you could walk along. We did an amazing circular walk and then came back over the bridge by which time the tide had flooded in and it wasn't nearly as interesting.

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments and UAs. I'm so.pleased you all like the image. Sometimes I have ideas.and they don't quite work but I was happy this one. The model made my job easy though!

    Thanks Moira, yes I was troubled about the razor not looking like a razor so I might be able to clone from another image that looks more reflective and convincing. Regarding the box, unbelievably, I didn't spot it until you just pointed it out! I think I need to just clone that out as I agree it is a distraction. Thanks for the critique. Helena

    Thank you all for your kind comments and UAs. It was worth nicking my jacket as I hoped over the barbed wire fence!

  • Confession

    Thank you for the recent critique, Mr Dudler. Yes I see what you mean about the shadow. I'll try again, an easy fix. Glad you like the image, I had great fun putting it together involving a challenging photo shoot and separate trip to Milan cathedral!

    This is really helpful, thank you so much. I think the more subtle mod is probably the best for the image, but like you, I enjoy experimentation - the trick is knowing when to stop! I'll have a play with Nik Silver Efex, it looks like you can get all manner of interpretations with it. When I have the right recipe, I'll duplicate it on the three images I have, and see what the camera club judges make of it in the Panel/Triptych comp. I really enjoy sharing images on Ephotozine and appreciate the help and interest members show. Thank you team! Grin

    Really love the colours and shapes, maybe a tad more depth of field would have helped to keep it all in focus, but a really interesting image. Smile

    Good idea, very unusual . Perhaps I would have cropped a bit from the left, but a very interesting image. Smile
