Calm Dawn

Calm DawnOK Martin I'll give this system a go. Normally I wouldn't bother to vote but perhaps my down vote is worth an explanation and as such maybe that's a positive thing?

The wide angle lens and the fact that the camera is tilted downwards means the buildings are leaning badly. That is something I think you should really avoid. I know you want to include the foreground but without a tilt & shift lens you have to be very carefull with buldings and trees etc. The rest is just OK.

Hope I don't have to run for cover now Wink

Cheers, Ian.

studio lighting 'novice'

studio lighting 'novice'The lighting is OK, but I think you need to concentrate a little more on composition at the moment. Your subject is too central and the landscape format doesn't suit. Take it in a portrait format and ask your subject to stand at 45 degrees then look at you over her shoulder. Tilt the head to give a bit of shape to the image. That will get you off to a better start. Also try using a single light to the left/right and a reflector to fill in. Look through the site for images you like and try to see how they are done. Hope this helps ...

Distant View

Distant ViewReally nice. I would however loose the object in the middle - not something I would normally do, but in this case I think it would add strength to the simple composition. I also think a hard crop off the top to make it a letter-box would also be slightly better. Just my own opinion of course... Smile

Different Me

Different MeI thought I recognised that face! Brave man you.
Nice work martin. Window light?
Some critique? As Paul says, it's too central and also too much space above the head - get those eyes on the top third and feel free to crop into your head (so to speak... Smile ) You can put the space either side to equally good effect. The rest of it is great. Keep 'em coming...

Cheers, Ian.
