A quick view of magnus's recent activity.

  • A summers day ...

    Great subject - well done.

    If you turned away from the sun a little you could have avoided the flare coming in from the top left corner Smile

    It's a great shot and I agree with the comments left by adderwatcher. I'm not sure what you mean by the "eyes against blacks" ? There doesn't seem to be a problem here! It certainly needs the highlights toning down a little. I would add that, if you could overcome that irresistable urge to run, the framing could be better. The top of his head and and one shoulder are cut off which does detract from the image.

    It's always a great view from the Madinhat. A white building in full sun and dark foreground shadows are always difficult to handle but this has worked reasonably well. Better, if possible, to try this in early morning or late evening when the sun is lower and adding a nicer colour.
    I did a mod to correct the converging verticals. Not much you can do about this at the time of shooting as it is a lens issue but relatively easy to correct afterwards. Did a little selective burning and cloned out the guy in the bottom left.

    I think you have done really well here, you certainly succeeded in giving both a sense of motion and a sense of relaxation in hectic surroundings. There are a couple of things I could suggest to improve this image and I have done a mod to illustrate. I did some corrections to the perspective and orientation, bringing the far railing more horizontal and the railings to the right nearer to vertical. There is not much you could have done about this at the time of taking the shaot as this is lens distortion. I also did some sharpening. This being a HDR shot, sharpness can be an issue but I think the "stationary" parts of the image could be sharper.

    In any case, well done!

    Quite nice as a record shot of a place visited. The light is quite harsh being what looks like middle of the day ish, but the figure looking up at the sign adds interest.
    I looked at your porfolio and it's obvious that you know what makes a good photograph as there are some really good images there so I'm surprised that you left the car windscreen in the bottom corner.
    Did a quick mod to counter the harsh light by simply moving the midpoint on the levels adjustment control and then removed the car.

    One of the few occasions when colour popping is REALLY appropriate.
    Perhaps the fangs should be red too?

    I think the bg could be toned down a little, it is very contrasty and draws the eye away from the subject. The framing is a little cramped at the top but that is minor issue - overall, I like it a lot!

    Considering this is taken with a phonecam it not too bad although the camera has struggled with the metering, exposing for the foreground and leaving shy white and overpowering. I made a quick mod to change the sky and you can see it has changed the whole balance of the scene.
    However, the image itself needs a point of interest - I found my eye was wandering around the frame looking for something to latch on to. Without something to attract the eye it is just a lot of green. The water and reflections provide a bit of interest but they do not go far enough into the frame.
