  • Scenic View to Barbury

    Nice - like the way the cloud formations seem to offer greater depth to the image. Also the stuff under the tree in the foreground work wil with it.

    Seems a little washed out - get it? Tongue

    Seriously this is a good pic. I think it could benefit from enhancing the colour slightly and sorting out the white burn.

    Like it.

    Nice vibrant colours.

    I think this would have benefited from being taken from a low angle that perhaps would have lost the houses showing over the trailer. A low angle would have also offered the dumper an air of power and authority in the picture. Also it's a shame that the lorry is cut off.

    Nice effort though

    No problem. It's funny what people like and don't like. My previous pic of this style resulted in people wanting a much more burnt out sky but still as much.
    I did consider straitening the horizon but decided that if I did that the trees on the right would lean to the left and look wrong. The current angle is how it appeared, so really it could be said that it is right as it is.
    I kind of agree with you with regard to the forground - I wanted to cut some of this but also wanted to retain the suns reflection so made the tricky decision to stick with it.
    It is however again how it appeared on the day. This picture is actually a colour picture. The fog was so dense that it provided this ethereal feel.
    Whilst I do understand where you are coming from with most of your comments, I am loathed to create an image that is two false against what I was seeing on the day.
    Thanks for the comments.

    This is a nice attempt at this kind of picture.
    It is unfortunate that the focus is actually on the camel behind and of course (as has already been mentioned) neither of the ladies in the foreground are looking towards you.
    I think this would also benefit from the orange scarf being left in monochrome along with the lady in the backgrounds head carf.

    I see why you took this - it's a nice picture.

    For me one destraction is the angle of the houses. It would feel better if you turned it a few degrees clockwise so that the windows etc. were in line with the edge of the picture.

    Lovely shot. Great colouring. Love the way you've captured a fine mist over the water.
    If I could offer any critisism it would be that the reed on the left is a little bit intrusive to the picture. Perhaps a slight bit of extra cropping would have helped.

    Really good work though Smile

    Wonderful detail and great colouring. Well done.

    Only thing I don't like is the framing. This takes away from the impact of the actual picture a little

  • I see you!

    This is really nice. I love the definition in the wind swept feathers and the totally neutral background gives the bird and the moss even more emphasis.

    These sorts of shots are always opportunistic and they take real patience if your looking for them, so it's a testiment to your abilities that you can capture a pic of this type at this quality.

    I do kind of wish there was more light around to the left hand side so the birds head and eye may have been brought out a bit, but who knows, the picture may not be half as good.

    Would have been a lot nicer without you in it Smile

    Nice picture, but I think a long shutter speed to soften the water would have given a beautiful picture.

    Excellent picture. Great clarity and colours. The digital manipulation is really good also

    Slightly uncanny coincidence with the pic I just posted. That was not intentional Smile

  • Contrasts at Kirby Hall

    I see what you mean. I didn't originally remove the part encroaching on the left side because I wanted to retain the feeling that it was actually taken in quite a confined area. But seeing your updated version I think there probably is an improvement.

    Thanks

    Brilliant pictrue. Great colours

  • country lines

    Great image! I'd put this on my wall.

    only 1 problem and that is that the framing is not required - it takes away from the impact of the image.

    Really great image with fantastic colours.

    Good pic - you were lucky to get that one. Love the extra little bug on the flower.

    Greay refleaction - lovely image. Shame about the border which takes away from the image a bit but still good.

    Lovely colours and clarity as always. Like the clear direction of light without actually capturing the sunset in the picture

  • Black mount

    That's a great picture - very interesting. I think it may have worked slightly better in portrait with more sky to balance it, but it is really good.

    Great image. love the colours and the perspective.

  • Rounding the bend

    Totally agree with the comment about the crop, this could be a more focused image.
    Other than that the action is great. Good picture

    What an incredible shot - surprised you haven't had a better number of responses.
