Hot Chocolate

Hot ChocolateTonally this is just very flat. It needed one stop less grad (if used) when shooting and the levels sorting out in post-production. You can choose to ignore this advise by all means but it will improve your work.

The Lamp

The LampTwo things strike me immediately. It would be better lit and I'm left wondering what it is next to on the wall.

Competition-wise it's going to be easily forgotten. Sorry.

A Family at War

A Family at WarVersion 1 (cos I'm not going through all of them Wink )

First thing is the big blue rectangle at the top of the image.

Second the angle is too low which means that all the main elements are at the wrong viewing angle and grouped across a central line.. Then there are silly things like - does the cigar type box fit the scene ...looks a bit Asian...but if everything came out of it, then why is the blue ribboned medal trapped beneath it. But mostly it's the big blue rectangle.

Sometimes..................I like the 'work' but it suffers from a sense of false perspective and perceived size. The corridor makes the pram look like a full size one to our eyes and even then about two feet too high but because of that we see the bricks as being the same size, if not bigger, than a pram wheels and that is just wrong.

The biggest problem in any composite is perception and expectation, Mum.

Happy New Year!

The Games People Play

The Games People PlayLike the idea but how about a Pawn who would be King....and that shadow needs grounding to its subject, Mum.
Dorothy and Timothy ... The GambleLoving it, Nick.

Great idea. Couple of things - not sure on the stubble field - I would have liked a more surreal hinterland...maybe sand, sand dunes and surely the dice should be double one - snake eyes.

still like it though.

mother and child

mother and childThere is something in these images for sure. For me, the PS work just needs to be a little tidier, in this case around the woman herself, particularly at the bottom of her dress and the paving stones.

BUT I really do think that you're onto something here. I was in the same frame of mind with chapeau-noir - I liked it and came very close to putting it forward for a PA Award and I just know that you're on the right track with these to really nail them.

DECEMBER WOODSA very easy photo to get so very wrong.
Here, the grad lines have been kept to a minimum without over-egging the stops whilst enough detail has been retained in the setting sun so as not to distract. But this image is all about that bottom third and the beautiful light, shadow and colour across the snow. The saplings peeping through are a bonus and give some detail in the foreground.
An excellent job.
