Hello,

Hope you like the variety I have tried to bring in my portfolio. Most of the images have been put here for comment and that is always appreciated. I spend quite a bit of time in the Critique section and I know many visit my portfolio because I have passed comment on their work. Hope you think my work is of a reasonable standard.

I know that, even with 50 years experience there are still things to learn and that technology changes quickly.

  • Get on your bike

    I like this as it is. It fits my fill the frame - get in close rule. The wider you go, the less impact in so many cases. Why does all the sign need to be included? Pretty obvious what is says!

  • The boathouse

    No real improvement needed, it is just a bit ordinary. The problem with these is that I have seen so many similar images that my attention and interest means a cursary glance is enough.

    It becomes subjective. Some will love, some will move along. For me, rather more dramatic conditions to lift the impact.

    Interesting. Makes you look so a success although possibly a tighter crop to increase impact.

    Flash and other lighting. Not a problem but probably need a tripod. Flash relys on aperture setting and length of exposure is less relevant providing you have a suitable synch speed set.

    Set an exposure on manual for the ambient light - neon here' although it looks like a chemical light to me, not neon. Say 1/2 @ f8. Then set the flash power for correct light output at f8. you may need to experiment, but that is the tried and tested method. It is aperture that matters.

  • Out!

    You can do what you like, it's your image. This is good and well shot. I would get rid of the sight screen altogether. we know they are there, but it is a bit of an eye puller. Partly crop, partly clone.

  • The Church In The Old Town Of Harfleur, France

    A pleasant scene, but why sepia in the bottom half and not the top. It does look a bit strange and not something I would consider. f20 is not needed and your lens will not be at it's best - f8 would be quite enough.

  • Consolidated PBY Catalina.

    Nice to hear from someone who actually flew an aircraft. I came close to a career in the RAF when I left school, but I wanted to fly and my eyes let me down.

    This works rather better. the softness works in a group with the lighting to give a rather more pleasant image. well composed.
