Seedhead & Dome

Seedhead & DomeI agree with the above comments. I would, however like to have seen the seed heads sharper. Or at least one of them to bring the eye in more. The comp is fine and I see exactly what you were doing but maybe next time try focusing on one element so the eye has somewhere to concentrate, if you know what I mean. At least one element should be the main focal point of the image.

Zebra Crossing!

Zebra Crossing!What a really great idea. Well thought up. To bring it a stage further though I think you need to "ground" the zebra. Try adding some shadow on the crossing. Theres a technique Here that might help. Paul

Great Skua in flight

Great Skua in flightWell you did comment in the forums.. I voted this down because I feel it needs far more detail in the bird itself. I can see no detail at all on most of the underside of the bird. Also the part that is visible isn't sharp. It seems to me that you probably set the camera for evaluative metering (or similar), when you probably should have used spot (open to correction on that one). Doing this would expose the bird properly but might blow out the sky though, but then this is a difficult shot to get right. maybe someone else can advise you on how to avoid that problem.

ChafinchIf you think you've oversharpened a little you could add a mask and subtley paint away any areas you think look overdone. Or alternatively duplicate the layer, sharpen and then reduce the opacity of the sharpened layer a little.
Lovely bird by the way.. Paul

For Love

For LoveAn impressive building ok, but the shots are quite dark and lack colour or contrast. V4 works to a certain extent giving it an old world feel to it. But I would do a bit of editing on these. Paul

My lovely...

My lovely...Personally I think the lighting is a bit harsh and a tad unflattering. It looks like the flash was low and to her left. moving it up slightly and more to her front would have taken away the shadow above her right cheek. Maybe even a reflector/diffuser to soften the flash. Having said that I know we don't always have these things to hand when we need them. As always, I'm open to contradiction Smile. Paul

LaytownWouldn't say it otherwise buddy. you've achieved everything a HDR shot needs. Full tonal range from darks to lights, no blowouts, no excessive shadow etc. If anyhthing a tad oversaturated in the centre of the branch, but thats prob just me. Paul

Fruit or Veg

Fruit or VegGood idea and nice comparison of colours. A bit more focus on the tomato is needed though I think. Paul
