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.

A quick view of paulbroad's recent activity.

  • Oribi Gorge

    I would crop some of the sky, but the single over riding problem here is the colour. There is a very heavy magenta cast indeed and that must be due to processing. It destroys the effect and you need to consider why that has occurred.

    You do not mention processing. Was a filter involved, or some flare?

  • Stumps and Berries

    The berries are just not big enough and there are clumps of them all over the place. You need to plan an ordered composition and concentrate on one good clump which you should make large and dominant as a focal point with possibly others less obvious in the background.

    You could crop this quite severely, shifting all that over the top of the fence and some from each side but you still have no real composition in there to satisfy the eye.

  • Sky II

    Initially a lot of impact, then, very quickly, confusion. It just doesn't look right. Some parts clearly normal, then a bit of tree upside down, top right and left. You hav a decent image if you crop at least half of the sky to get rid of the confusion.

    I applaud trying to be different, but I think you have gone a bit far with what is a basic trees/water sunset. Some will doubtless differ.

  • Film Friday!

    es,far too uch onotone chest. In very very tight on just the face and camera. Top crop to just above camera, botto to just under her chin. Then a strong image. Even better with some strong directional side lighting and subsequent shadows.

  • THE FIRST OF THE TRIALS

    All decent shots and good starting points with a fine attempt at interesting lighting. V2 is the better shot from the lighting point of view but V1 the best composition. You needed a better expression in V1 and light on her face.

    Chat to her, kid her on and make her laugh. I hate being on the 'wrong' side of a camera.

  • The Rescuer.

    And this one is a cracker. Extremely well done. As Willie mentions, I might just move him a little more to the left but a fine image.

  • Tenerife_ in the rear sight La Gomera

    Milky water again, but what a milky water shot. Such a pity rather more that we see don't have this strength and impact.

    Nice.
