OddmentsV2 is by far the best shot Eric, you may have suffered camera shake in V1/3, don't be offended by my comment as I recently took a whole batch of colour and landscape pics to find they were all for the bin and that day I had camera shake to

TreeIt's beautiful ramyaa the only thing and its not a complaint, your shooting into the sun! You need to be careful as this can destroy a picture, this time it has not been damaging and I do like the sun burst you have captured. The other thing you have to be careful of in this situation if, your looking at the sun through your viewfinder it can damage your eyes, just take care.
When I am faced with the sun I try and shade the sun by standing beside a tree or something similar that will take the glare as you can blow the highlights. Well doneSmile

Tulisa Contostavlos

Tulisa ContostavlosMay I be so bold as to say - its a shame the microphone the lady is holding obliterates the eyes of the man by her side (her hand as much as the mic) I like the shot its just unfortunate the timing is a little wrong but not having tried this myself its easy to criticise and I feel must have been difficult to get this exactly right. The two mic's are in unison - not sure I like that either if I am honest. Good effort tho Richard

on second viewing I wonder if it would be an idea to crop out the sound/speakers etc at the bottom of the picture

gsw grab shot

gsw grab shotI sort of guessed this was yours Steve because of the included feeder - its a great GSW shot and I know we cant always have what we want in respect of feeders you have to get what you can when you canWink but I feel your past the feeders stage now and I want better from youSmile the crop is fine IMO

Park Life (II)

Park Life (II)I hope you wont mind me saying but the strength is in the lower part of this picture and I would crop out a lot of the tree top, if you crop just above the trunk of the main tree and keep in some of the leaves from that tree the lower part of this image becomes stronger, try it and you might or not agree with my thoughts but you do have some great colour in this shot.

What you duckin' at?

What you duckin' at?the American Wood Duck has such beautiful colours but you have not managed too well to capture this as well as I might have liked, maybe a little on the dark side on my screen but the shot itself is a good one, taken in bright sunlight might be the problem.

Almost mono

Almost monoIf you have photoshop Barbs have you ever tried shadows/highlights this question is not meant to offend but your image appears a little dark on my screen - having said this I do like the abstract with the swan included. I just tried the shadows thing on my pc with your picture you would be amazed at the difference - another epz member made me aware some weeks back and I use the shadows tool a lot now and very pleased with the result it gives, dunno why I never found it before.

Hayleyyou are going to bless me Steve and wonder why I am always on the critique side, the neck is slightly over exposed on the L.H.side and the 3 bright lights above the head are very bright and need dulling down slightly but otherwise a great portrait

stagV2 is a tad too much in shadow and while V1 is a good composition it suffers from my problem and lacks lustre and rich colour of the Red Deer

Storm brewing Dartmoor

Storm brewing Dartmoorits pretty much been said and I cant really add more - a person in red might have helped, I feel its lacking something, that said I like trees and this one has a nice shape to it.

Where is my mum

Where is my mum
Quote: Pretty little fluffball with a lovely expression, nicely captured. The background green is a bit livid for me - I would have desaturated it a bit. (I tried it and it did make the robin stand out more).

I found the same with the background being strong for the robin but could be a superb shot if you were able to desaturate the b/g

Turntoneyou could actually afford to lighten the bird a little Oli and I am wondering why its such a small file when you have epz membership, I tried a mod but you havent put it up for modifications - I lightened a tad and tried to lift the eye and get a catchlight but sharpening helped with the overall effect of the bird - do you have editing software?
Its a good shot but could be improved upon a little in processing

Robinsuperb robin shot I like the new crop but and there is always One - he needs more room at the top giving him room to stretch up more or even fly (not too much tho about 1/2 an inch or just slightly less than that) and your onto a winner - well done

southeastern set

southeastern setone example where it may be necessary to have the sea in focus but possibly had you done that the isolated shrub/plant would not have been as noticeable, I just think perhaps a different viewpoint might have been the clue/answer, overall a good set - one other thing! a judge might point out this image is cut into 3 and you could do without the sky - food for thought

No cold feet

No cold feetnice shot of the chaffy but he is really looking out of the picture and needs to be more placed to the left so that he is looking IN - I viewed large and I would guess this was a heavy crop as its not as sharp as I would like personally speaking and the b/g is rather noisy but as a grab shot I know the temptation and the difficulties you were possibly faced with - did you get the nuthatch?

Yellow Flower

Yellow Flowernot as good as yesterdays but a good try - some things to be mindful of 1/the sun it will bleach your flower (not so in this case) but you have lost detail to some extent, meaning its a little soft in focus. Lovely colour and you have a good depth of field so its not all bad. I find myself looking for your pictures now Manni - be hard on yourself and if they are not good pics refrain from posting, my motto is - "good better best never let it rest until your good is better and your better best" I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT Manni - keep clicking

Cow in field

Cow in fielda good composition - looks like you have another cow behind the main subject of this image, do you have any editing software as you could clone that out if you do, I cant quite make out what could be a leg on the hind quarter of the subject either and that little identifying disc in the ear could be cloned out for perfection - it all helps to make the perfect picture Manni but well done, use comments for future improvement on your pics I have every faith in you = your young and have time on your side, use it well and you will go far
