I can see this shot going viral lol!

Mussenden Temple

Mussenden Temple by canonfan

needs a little more contrast and sharpness..

At anchor

At anchor by canonfan

you angle of view could have done with coming down a bit and framing the boat properly using that tree instead it's just an obstruction as it is.

Ploughing the field

Ploughing the field by canonfan

Excellent, Nice light, and scene.

had you of opened your aperture up and narrowed your depth of field, the focus on the tractor would have been more prominent and hence the whole shot would benefit.

Newgrange by JohnMeik

Now don't take this personally, but your HDR's need a lot of work!

Don't listen to people that say your processing great or that HDR is good! so far they have not been so!

This example is about as wrong as they can get.
1. composition is wrong!
2. grey clouds look awful & unreal
3, it is not sharp anywhere
4. the subject is to far in the distance to bother with HDR
5. there is hardly any contrast in the image, convert it to B&W and it will turn out a misty grey all over. (ie. no contrast)
6. over saturated.

I've seen some if not most of these mistakes in some other of your shots.
You need to go back to basics and start afresh. upload a few example to the Critique gallery and folk will help you out.

Here is an example of an HDR when done right click here there are better examples out there I just chose one of mine for convenience sake.

But hey! don't worry I started out that way too not too long ago.

Jurassic Light

Jurassic Light by BillyGoatGruff

In a word: Stunning!


Ellie by d55p

Very well exposed!
well done.

White Tiger

White Tiger by spotty_dragon

A white tiger surrounded by grass... the camera will underexpose the tiger and render the whole scene a mid tone grey, that is why the image has come out flat and dull,
I therefore gave my mod some contrast and lifted the tiger up from a the gloom of the mid tones..

Wishing Summer

Wishing Summer by SJAlfano

In my mod, I took the greyness out of the snow, lifted the colour of the building and gave it a bit more contrast so it would all stand put more.

The House on the Lake

The House on the Lake by jackitec

Both are actually very good shots, what are they doing in this gallery ? Smile

Some beautiful shots in this PF well done.

What my PF is about:
(independant report by susyblue)
OK I'm jumping in here with a look at Looboss's PF

I went right back to the beginning and looked at his development over the years he's been here, and it's clear that he has progressed in leaps and bounds with wide open landscapes. He's someone who adores what the earth shows, whether he's photographing sunsets, seascapes or landscapes, and this is where his strengths lie.

Close ups don't make it quite so big, mainly because I feel he doesn't get quite such a kick out of them and so they're a little flatter than his extraordinarily beautiful landscapes. There are the occasional hits with close ups but that's because I think he manages to make a landscape out of them - the one with the insects is a case in point.

He knows his stuff too, and manages to marry the technical side of photography with the creative.

He has a lot of style, a lot of ambition, oodles of self confidence which he thoroughly merits, and he is a great motivator of other people. If other people are discouraging he has the courage to go it alone and plough his own furrow without worrying about what other people will think. He's not afraid to try new things or to look at different ways of doing things, and he uses his vast array of photographic equipment to its full advantage rather than simply having them as toys. I think he has a lot of personal integrity, too.

I think this terrific self belief is what is behind the huge improvement in his landscapes because he sees the bigger picture. He sees life from all angles and just won't allow himself to get bogged down in small irritations which really don't matter in the great scheme of things.

hehe .. great portfolio, Looboss!
