Field of Dreams

Field of DreamsA very soulful image.
If you go to the Topaz web site,they have a plug-in called Re-mask that does an excellent job on hair. You can download a free trial to see how you like it before you buy. Hope this helps.

Springtime Greeting

Springtime GreetingThis would make a fine card.
I am in the camp of toning down the background a bit. The various greens seem to clash to my eye. I do like the idea and the arrangement.

Monday morning

Monday morningProbably a good decision, KurtGrin
I like the way you have zeroed right in on the mask with no distracting features. My one suggestion would be to straighten it with a counter clockwise adjustment so the eyes are level.
Great colors and texture.

Green & Pink

Green & PinkThere is a certain beauty to this, but to me they definitely look like they are floating without a ground. My other (and this is just personal preference) critique is the spacing between the bottles. I prefer a more grouped look. The colors and the background are finely done but for me it needs a more solid base for the bottles to rest on.

Blue Bird

Blue BirdBeautiful flower, and I really like what you did with it.
I would suggest bringing back a bit of color on the very top leaf, it fades out a bit too abruptly. This is a wonderful image though, and really nice toning.

Parking Lot

Parking LotThere is a stark and lonely beauty about this. The elements are everyday objects, yet unique in their moodiness.

ButterflyI do like it very much. The only slight distraction is the white glow around his antennae. Is it something in the background or an editing? I would suggest darkening it up a little to perhaps a light beige tone. The butterfly is totally gorgeous!
June Sunset in Coda Covallo, SardiniaI am not a member of the critique team, but I don't agree with lightening the image at all. The lovely shapes of the trees and distant hill are beautifully silhouetted,and are nicely balance. I would clone out the small dark bush in the lower right. Sometimes nature's drama is so beautiful that it doesn't need to have any man made object in the scene, in fact in this case I think it would spoil the image.

Girl on the Promenade

Girl on the PromenadeV2 is so very beautiful, it tops the mono by a mile.
In answer to your question this article my help:
Quote: Banding is caused by the failure of an algorithm during an image conversion, such as switching to a new color mode. If too many near-identical image tones spread out farther than its computational area, the algorithm can fail, and the conversion may produce tonal edges called bands. To eliminate banding, use the Add Noise filter to add pixel variation to adjacent tones.

It is a very informative article by Doug Nelson.

November Sunrise

November SunriseOther than the white object in the foreground, this is beautifully done. I hope that it isn't a plastic jug, I'm telling myself it is a rock, but I would clone it out. The sunrise and the pilings are wonderfully dramatic.

The Actress No2

The Actress No2If you study the rule of thirds and the golden ratio it will help with your placement of the eyes in portraiture. If the eyes are on one of these lines, or at the cross lines it will give much more power to the image. You can look these up on google, and I think there is a down loadable program that helps you when you are editing.

ContemplatingThis is wonderful....she has such an interesting expression, like she is sad to be leaving her old life.
I would suggest removing the reflection of her necklace from her face.
Your lighting is gorgeous.

On Golden Pond

On Golden PondVery beautiful. If you have more, I would like to see just a little more space above the bird's head. The colors and reflection are lovely.

water drop on feather

water drop on featherWelcome from the US, Jack.

I love abstracts, and this is a good one. I don't find the diagonal not in the corner at all disturbing, in fact in this instance I rather like it. I'll be the drop falls pretty close to the golden spiral, which is a fine compositional position.
Looking forward to more.

Flowers of Darkness

Flowers of DarknessI like this, although I think I would prefer it with just the single off-centered flower. The second one seems a distraction. The concept is quite beautifully handled.

Coat Of Arms

Coat Of ArmsExcellent detail.
This one would have benefited to have more on the top and less on the bottom, so the whole upper scroll would be visible.

Matching thread

Matching threadTo me, this is more of a craftsman's image rather than fashion, but that being said I like your composition. I do see a yellow discoloration of the skin tones. The 4th modification would be my pick....the mono actually makes it seem more of a fashion shot somehow.

Sepia Splendour

Sepia SplendourI very much like the effect on the flower. I would try to clone or dodge out the upper right dark spot. It takes away from the simple beauty of the composition. Otherwise it is well worked and quite lovely.

SURYAN ... MY LITTLE BABYA very good portrait of a gorgeous dog. I might crop it in just to the left of the brick which is lying on the ground. It would bring more attention to the dog. My eye was drawn immediately to the brick and the pallet on the right. I also am not a fan of incorporating writing on the photo. If you want to title it, a moderate frame and smaller letters work better for me. Your colors, especially in the dog are very nice.

Sleepy Time

Sleepy TimeFine image!
If I were to change it at all, I might clone out the little round spots here and there amongst the down. Also, look at a crop which eliminates the white in the lower left. It would also put more emphasis on the duckling without having the eye drawn downward.
Good luck with this well composed photo.
