Old Oak Tree

Old Oak Tree by Sconz

Superb colours and presentation.

clown fish

clown fish by catherinekp79

You've made your Sony cybershot work hard on this one considering the strong lighting coming down from top left and shooting through glass.

It a good colourful image and record shot for you. Not quite sharp enough in all areas and I'd be tempted to crop off the area of harsh light from the top of the image.

This makes the really colourful fish stand out even more.


sunset by alanne

You've captured the warm colours of a sunset well and got the best out of your camera on this occasion.

The foreground which takes up about one third of the image really needs to be cropped a bit and contain more detail.

There is a good, narrow panoramic image waiting to be extracted from this shot containing the sky, sea and beach.


Autumn by khedarin

Great autumn colours but I think it would have more impact if you closed in and filled the frame with a smaller area of colourful leaves.

You could experiment with different points of view to see which works best.

The range of colours here represent the autumn theme very well.


img_6844_pier by rane

Hi rane - I really like the composition and presentation of the image - the jetty leads the eye well into the image.

The early morning sun appears to have "burnt out" in the middle and the lighting across the clouds appears uneven with perceptible darker diagonal lines across the clouds and a darker circular lines parallel with the outer ring of the sun which don't appear to be in keeping with the cloud formation and density.

This would be a difficult image for any digital sensor to capture given the dynamic range of the early morning, rising sun and strength of shadows but you have done well.

This is a good shot and a pleasure to view.

Textured Anti Nazi

Textured Anti Nazi by ade_mcfade

I prefer V2 - although the crop spaceman refers to above would indeed create greater visual impact.

I think the concrete textured overlay in V1 over complicates the image and detracts from the main subject.

The perspective of the cracks in the concrete overlay is different to the lines of the concrete block pavers - and to me this adds a discordant note to the image.

An absolutely stunning image in every respect

Superb image - an almost 3D effect. I really like the colours, composition and perspective

NO 16

NO 16 by sophielou

Superb colours and composition. We walk our dog along the sea front close to No 16 and just up from "The Love Shack" lol


Reaper by Eviscera

Superb work Dave. A very thought provoking image. Absolutely love it.

Fantastic action capture. The expression on the dogs face is unforgettable. Great shot


Wonderland by LauraFerreira

Stunning and thought provoking work.

The Sax

The Sax by Dee_Zee

You've got the lighting, colours and exposure spot on and this is a great subject for abstract work.

You could gain more impact in the shot by changing the angle of the camera / saxophone and not having it fall away from the camera quite so sharply.

It's quite a busy shot as it is and not immediately clear what the subject is.

I'd also be tempted to get in even closer around the 3 white button/keys and fill the frame with this and other areas.

Strong diagonals always look good in images.

I'd also be tempted to do a silhouette as well with such a subject as this and create a really strong graphic image.

Rainbow Tucan

Rainbow Tucan by gnovey

The mod from banehawi just leaps off the page at me and is a first class example of how to take a good image and turn it into a stunner.

All the mods show the hidden potential in this shot.

One quick thought though.

I agree that the additional sharpening, saturation, placing a catch light in the eye, darkening the background, adding contrast and increasing the canvas size all benefit the image and make it even better but there are two white chips / blemishes near the tip of the beak.

I would be tempted to remove these as well but would that make the image too perfect?

I'm wondering if leaving in the beak blemishes add to the reality of the image (which has been improved by software) or whether if they were removed the image could be classed by some as too picture perfect?

I'm clearly in two minds over it or is it a case of make a decision, publish and be damned?

The beaks chips are reality, but as we have already tampered with reality to benefit the image does that really matter?

My reason for posing this question is that although I love this image, my eye is constantly drawn to those wretched white chips in an otherwise super, highly colourful beak.


BLOOMIN HECK by youmightlikethis

I prefer V2 slightly over V1 for its symmetrical layout and image composition - but I enjoyed looking at both images and colours aas presented.

Any gardener would like these on the wall

Superb images and creativity in your portfolio. Very thought provoking.

The stunning portrait of Calum has given much pleasure to the entire family in our household. The whole portfolio is of superb quality but if I could take just one image to a Desert Island - it would be this one.
Sincere condolences to all family and friends.
