Framed Hydrangeas

Framed HydrangeasI like this image very much Kate, my only thought is that the R/H/S of the vase needs more detail, to match the L/H/S. I know that you have your light source on the Right as the shadow of the vase is going to the left of the vase. You could put a reflector on the Left to bounce the light back and illuminate the Left hand side of the vase, givening a equal amount of light to both sides of the vase. IMHOSmile

I HOPE SHE DOESN'T SPEND TOO MUCHThat resigned look that say's it all.

Just a tip Tish, try to get the shutter speed up to or above the focal length that you are shoot at, IE you shot this image at 300mm but your shutter speed was 1/160 sec, a shutter speed of 1/500 sec would have been better. I see you are on program AE, I mainly shoot in aperture priority, I can then choose the shutter speed I require, by either upping the ISO or alterring the aperture. This way you have control of the camera, shutter and maual program's also give you control of the camera.
Also you could a use tripod and manual focus the lens, with a remote shutter releaseSmile

Snake V2

Snake V2Like the simplicity of the images Mark.
Thiese are my thoughts.
V1 Crop the top of the image to leave about one third of the light band in the image.
V2 For me to much sky. Again crop the top of the image to just above the white cloud on the r/h/s of the image.

The Busker

The BuskerHave read the comments and some great advice has been given, just to add to Wiilie's about film, you also had different filters that corrected these cast's when useing a daylight film, ie a FL would be used under fluorescent lighting.

If you are useing Lghtroom in the Basics Panel you have the WB picker, or select As Shot, Auto, and Custom WB, with Custom you can alter the colour temperature and tint to what you perceive as right.

Totally agree with Willie about monitor calibration, I have a Spyder Pro4 can recomend this.

Infrared Shadows

Infrared ShadowsOnly done IR on film Kate, I used a hoya filter and IR film, printed on Grade 5 paper, used to get black sky's and white trees and grass. You can buy IR converted DSLR's that give excellent results, the common ones that I see are Nikon, D70 AND D80. They convert Canon as well I beleive, this is possibly your best route into IR. It's great funSmile
If not there are loads of tutorials on U Tube to do with IR.
Hope that help.

Dagebüll seascape

Dagebüll seascapeNice mono image, very simple but works, one thing would have cropped the post out on the right of the image, it distracts from the image, IMHO

Dail Mor Beach, Western Isles, ScotlandA great mono image like the way the ripples lead you into the image, But I think you have 2 images here, the one shown and crop the top down approx 30% to give a great abstractSmile

Autumn Stubble

Autumn Stubblei like this a lot, I like the way the lines lead you through the first field and then into the next, between the two trees, a great sky, but my eye is pulled to the left of the image by the trees, I would crop the L/S down to just before the large tree, makeing more of a portrait view and a much stronger image. You allmost have 2 images here. (IMHO)

"Window on a Winter Weir"

"Window on a Winter Weir"Hi


A lovely place to while away a few hours, IMHO I like the way the tree and the fence frame the waterfall, my thought would be to get rid of the saplings in front of the fence, they are a disstraction to the eye, possibly a little crop to the top of the image.Smile
