I don't mind your tight crop, but you are either under exposed or your mono conversion is astray, or bothe. There is no true black anywhere resulting in a flat greyish image. you need impact and contrast for a shot like this if you use mono.
I met Vic Blackman a couple of times and he was a fine photographer. He said it honestly and down to earth. anyone wshing to progress to a sei pro or pro environment MUST master their gear. i fear many don't think it necessary in these days of digital.
The blur is a major error. I look at the blurred area rather than the face because it is obviously not natural. The head is sharp and well shown so no need to muck about. I would come in even tighter on the head, correct the magenta cast and get a correct title.
Both John and Willie hit the valid points. You should not be setting such a high ISO in full sun lit daylight and f5.6 would cover focusing errors a little. You are under exposed and the highlights will stand a little more light.
An impressive thing but I'm really not sure about mono for such a natural history related subject. Your ono conversion seems very heavy to me. Possibly due to the lack of a wide colour gamut, but I would expect blues and blue greys.
The basis isgoo but that black line has to go. As John says, for elegant glaour a white background to the point of over exosing it and possibly a No. 1 diffuser on caera. When you finish the selection, remove any blackor white matts within the layer tool.
Potntially a fine record, but that is hat it is, natural history record and the subject must thus be pin sharp. It is quite soft and whilst that is OK for general purpose,it precludes use as a pure record.
This is a little better, but the comment remains the same. You are a little under exposed and there is quite a degree of softness. I suspect both camera movement and subject movement and ambient has intensified that.
Depends on your business. Interesting shot of two very old Range Rovers. The price of parts can be astronomical! Quite yellow but the evening lighting is the cause an it isqite acceptable.
One at a time is best. They are all different requiringdifferent comment which can get confusing.
I often want a subject and you gave me one here! Not a bad effort in very difficult cicmstances. HDR would not help. It flattensimags, but only the sun is toobright and you will not put any detail back into that!
Not a bad shot. Nothing t say he is a magician and the title might b better angled to the audience, but not really important. might have tried to get a bit to the right keeping the two mebers of the audience in, but including more of the performers face frontally.
