A quick view of Jestertheclown's recent activity.

  • Daffodil White Daffodil Yellow

    That "save for web" tool is quite destructive.
    The theory that images displayed on websites should only be of low resolution and merely adequate quality works a lot of the time but I fear that Photoshop sometimes takes it too far.

  • #86, Porsche 911 RSR,

    Well spotted and captured but sadly for us, spoiled by the watermark.

  • Shadow lines

    Quote:The lighting was difficult on this one

    At the risk of stating the obvious, you could have overcome this by walking towards the horizon and facing in the other direction.

  • It's Not A Rottweiler

    Hi Ian,
    I like this.
    As for critique, it's all been said, I think.
    With regard to Silver Efex, that's also my first choice for mono conversions but I do find, as you are, that the results sometimes need a bit more "punch".
    I've got lots of converted architectural shots, buildings and buildings under construction, all of which, I'm quite happy with but for other stuff, your image here being a good example, I'd find myself wanting a bit more contrast.
    My theory is that the building shots consist of plenty of straight lines and hard edges, usually with a fair amount of shadow which lends itself naturally to a mono conversion without having to rely upon having the "right" colours together.
    I also sometimes use an old copy of "Franzis Silver Projects Premium" which I picked up as a freebie from "Giveaway of the day" or somewhere similar a couple of years ago.

  • Edinburgh 2 x C's (Castle & Cars)

    There are two images here.
    One quite adequate 16x9 image of some cars and another, also adequate, image of the castle.
    Combining the two, as a social statement works, I suppose but for me at least, it doesn't really do anything else.
    Also, the sharpening looks a little too strong.

    It looks as if you've got at least one dust spot, almost certainly, on your sensor.

    I like the bike but it's so dark as to be almost invisible.

  • Hi Kathryn,
    I don't comment on your stuff much these days, as there's no longer anything much for me to say. The occasional social call or email is much more pleasant.
    Although, having just said that, you've got some outstanding images here, images to be proud of.
    Well done.
  • I've just found your pf. John; there's some excellent work on display here.
  • Hi Steven,
    I've just come here from your "Bandstand" upload and what I've found here is some excellent work.
    Some of these shots are really first class. Likewise the contents of your website.
    You obviously have an analytocal eye as much of your work includes exact symmetry and precise composition and positioning within the frame.
    Not something that's essential necessarily but it certainly helps!
    Well done.

  • What an incredible portfolio!
    Absolutely brilliant work.

  • This is excellent work Tim.
    You are to bee congratulated.

  • Great pf. Ian.

  • Hi Peter, Small World!
    I've come to your portfolio after you uploaded a comment on one of my offerings (a squirrel with a crunchie!) and I've found myself looking at a collection of steam images, most of which I've studied and probably voted for in the galleries!
    Great work.
  • 'Lazy and unenhanced'.
    I like the sound of that.
    I find that manipulation can so easily become overdone.
    Nicely varied portfolio you have here and good to see that Eliza's got the bug!
    Hapy new Year,
  • What a great, fun portfolio!
    Keep it up!
    Best wishes,
