A quick view of philwig's recent activity.

  • Hummingbird Hawk Moth

    It may be the post processing, but it doesn't look sharp. Did you sharpen it once you'd sized it for here? What did you focus on?

    Try to balance the ambient light with the flash a bit more; probably you were shooting on full auto which doesn't do that with Canon at least. Use the flash for fill and you won't get that nasty shadow..

    It would help if you posted your settings...I can guess what you shot it with, but it's esier if you just say (mode, shutter speed and aperture).

  • No Fishing !

    The colours look over-saturated to me.

    The polarizer is probably what's giving you the gradation in sky colour - it looks a bit odd given where the sun is.

    I like the perspective; I wonder what would happen with an even lower viewpoint. I think I'd crop it tighter at the top.

    Looks like the colour's off to me.. they look like purp-le bells on my screen. I know the saturation thing is fashionable, but I find it distracting.

  • Goldfinch

    Looks pretty good, although maybe a tad over-processed. I'd like to see some texture on the feathers. I wonder if you could get an angle without the two branches in the background.

  • Artic Tern

    Looks pretty good. These are hard I think because there's a big contrast. I'd like to see the eye... perhaps you can bring that out in PS. I like the way the wing looks really sharp.

  • Stoer Point Lighthouse

    Looks like a very interesting building. I wonder if it'd work even better if you cropped slightly more at the bottom, so the road hits the bottom left corner? I wonder as well about getting the cloud up to the RH top corner?

  • Red Arrows in Action

    It's a good angle for the 'planes, but the light on them's not too good - they're dark shapes against the sky, where as I know they're bright red. I might crop this so that bottom vapour trail goes into the corner, and mayme have the diagonal axis of the group match the image diagonal (if that makes sense). Otherwise try to figure out where the light is when shooting airshows and shoot only when the 'planes look really good in it.
