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.

    And you have recorded it well. It is an architectural record. Mono looks good here, but is mono conducive to a record? Having said that it is me that is calling it a record.

  • Mother and Father Mute Swan with their Cygnets at Bayfront Park

    With Willie, plus the image is quite flat. I would tweak contrast up a bit. The cygnets are unfortunately not well situated. they need to be looking out towardsthe camera. i know you cannot organise it, but that is the real image here.

    I would have been at ISO400 here for a aster shutter speed.it is quite good,though, but I would brighten the eyes a touch with the dodge tooland darken, or crop the rear body. The bright fur just behind the head pulls the eye as the brightest highlight.

    I thinkanother factor n it being soft is the very high ISO which willalso reduce resolution. there is the basis of a good coposition here,but I just find myself looking at the bottles rather than the flowers.

    I fear I am with Willie. It just looks wrong. I suspect you have tried tomake this more spectacular and the result looks so false. You also need a focal point, a subject. Sunsets often look fantastic,but also often do not photograph well.

    The basic image in terms o composition and content is good, but technically not quite so. You have camera shake. The animal is soft, but the hand does seem sharper. The shutter speed is a little too low. The colour version is rather better than the mono which is over processed but colour is better for this subject. Take it from someone who HAD to use mono much of the time.

    Some with and some without flash. Wonder if I got it wrong and this is without as EXIF suggests. The shade does make it a bit cool and warming adds.
