  • White Sweet Peas

    Nice image
    I prefer the warmer colours of the version.
    As you have allowed mods I've done one which cropped the image. I understand the trend in photography to have more dead space. However i feel it's over done hence my mod. Just my view of course,

  • Cooling Off!

    Well spotted. This image tells a really good story. I think your original with people moving about may actually improve the story side of the image. i.e.. chilling out whilst the world rushes by?
    Possible technical issues apart, an excellent image.
    With street photography actual framing, stray bits and pieces minor tech issues are much less important than the story seen by a viewer.

    The camera settings seem wrong to me. The quality of the photo would be improved by using a lower ISO and a corresponding lower shutter speed.
    For example an ISO of 200 (1/5th of that used) and a shutter speed of 1/250 th of a second (again a 1/5th). Even with a focal length of 207mm 1/250th would have been well fast enough coupled with the image stabilisation of the lens.
    Two points to remember.
    Always check camera setting before pressing the shutter
    Always use the lowest ISO, if a shot turns out to be a good one you will need the best quality a lower ISO will give.
    Also think about returning settings to 'average one' after taking a shot.
    Check out articles about using auto ISO which would mean you only have speed and lens aperture to think about.
    As regards composition, maybe a camera position which would have included the speed boat the people were watching would have added to the 'story'. As it is it's just a group of people.

  • I really like this picture. Interested to see such lovely result from Topaz, you must have worked hard at it, most I've seen are not too good,
    Happy New Year

  • What a beautiful collection of images. Your eye for composition for me is spot on. You do not try to over use colour to gain attention in an image.
    I would liken your portfolio to images that might be found in the up market gallery whilst many posted elsewhere seem to aim for the type of image painted by the pavement artist at Brixham, garish, cheap but popular.
    in my view your have created art work.
