    I'd better ask my herd if they would prefer them for breakfast over cheerios

    strange, lately the site uploads more than one pic even if I ask to upload only once. Beautiful image in the first place anyway, I just cropped from the left making the frame oblong. I like the blend of blue eyes, red hair and yellow scarf, they are a good match.

  • Compare.

    I trust no female photographer would want to break a lens on someone's head so I assume you are all safe.
    Paul mentions the two pictures have a time difference of 1 second. Surprisingly!
    Had not know differently, I would say that the left one was shot in winter as the colours are colder whereas the one on the right is shot in summertime when the colours seem warmer.
    I have seen deer in winter so the left image seems the most truthful in my memory in regards to the colour.
    Unless... UK deer suffer like squirrels, the reds are taking over! Harry rejoice!

    Applauds. Impressive point of view. I wonder if a slight rotation to the right is necessary..

    That is the problem with the long legged models, sometimes they don't fit in the frame Blush

    Strong image. Be strong and healthy yourself too.

  • Eye effect.

    Honesty, I would consult with a vet. Is it safe for the animal to be flashed? What precautions had you taken for facing an attack from a deer? Only yesterday on a comment here there was a video of a photographer being attacked and knocked by a young deer. Front element of the lens was scratched, I can bet you have the gear insured but again... I hope you have a good insurance too.
    P.S. Do no try this on lions!

  • Hamish, looking for mischief

    Hi. I understand this is a test shot but I do not understand what you have been testing, have you got an image of Hamish without the light from the softbox to compare it with? I would say the camera has done really well at producing a noise free image at ISO 3200. I find strange setting the aperture at f/8 closing the iris and having to use flash and softbox to keep the subject well illuminated, whereas you could go at least two f steps down, and open this iris wider to record the dog at a faster speed. The aperture used has helped us distinguish the background fairly clearly but again black on brown does not create the amount of contrast a lighter background would have created. It is a good grab shot, all ears in and subject still and sharp. Yes it is an accurate representation of Hamish but I think it lacks aesthetic appeal.

  • Walk/Donít Walk

    Hi, well noticed. I would crop the top leaving the DONT WALK sign and then trim the left side to maintain the square format. I think you could have also shot it horizontally so the full shadow of the girl is in the frame. The issue with the reflection is this: You can read it normally if you are inside the building, so it would be nice if you could clarify.

    Hi, I had started writing my critique yesterday but moved to another page by an accident and lost the text. I could not retrieve it which is sad.
    This is a picture taken on film so I would be surprised if the camera or you had kept data as lens used, film make and ISO, or ASA, or DIN, aperture value and shutter speed. I wonder if the vignetting plied on the development room or digitally, I do not think it adds anything to the image but a retro feeling.
    I will agree with Paul it has an appeal which is down to the symmetry. Black and white makes it look both timeless and charming.
    The focus of my critique is actually on the shooting angle. You seem to have shot this standing and pointing downwards. As a result the top of the clouds seems cut off abruptly to the expense of seeing more salty or sweet water on the bottom of the frame. I would have bent my knees and shoot with the lens pointing slightly upwards so the frame on the top closes with blue (grey for this instance) sky containing fluffy clouds.
    Regardless if you have used a rangefinder, a SLR, or a pocket camera, I suspect you had time to anticipate these birds flying above the boat. Pity it has no fisherman but at least the speed recorded the birds correctly freezing the flapping motion which for a photo on film is an achievement.
    I will upload my modification later. Promise.

  • It's snowing outside, but it's warm in here!

    I can't think you had to go back out to bring us this, and will duly thank you. Can't the gearbox in the automatic car you use take the gears as a manual too?

    Hi, you must own some pretty warm gloves I suppose. My opinion is to turn this to monochrome...

    Hi dudler... I wondered about the empty space above her which I cropped... I may had used it in the bottom of the frame. Interesting pose.. is her name Andrea or is this a coincidence? (the Saint martyred that way).

    Nice jewellery... or is it not? That is where the description and the title would help people understand...

    Beautiful location Niranjan, where in India is this?
    I think you should be putting a title to each image you upload and allow for the metadata of the camera to be uploaded, if other photographers want to make suggestions to improve your pictures they need to know what settings did you use to take them in the first place.

    Namaste Niranjan, the wider perspective suits the scenery you wanted to photograph, well done!

    I vote for version 4.But then again I do like black and white in general.
    Version 5 is way too colourful for me and the colour of face and body are very different.
    Did you use a golden reflector on the right by any chance?
