The Athlete! by juddie

The Athlete!

My take on it was that it was particularly good precisely because we could not see her feet or the ground, as this would have taken away the feeling of space and cleanliness, it would have given a sense of place, which is refreshing in its absence.
That then almost demanded some of her tail out of frame or she would merely have looked legless - I see the composition as very dynamic, energetic, balanced, modern, effective, intriguing, clean and simple.

Autumn by Stewy


Your patience was well rewarded; particularly like the movement and shapes echoing each other between sky and trees. Converging verticals seem to suit the surreal feel, too. Would look just as good without brown line frame, IMO

SILENCY... by JouŠo


I like the composition and tones, though, as ever, prefer no framing (that's just me !)...really like the effect of mist, dewy cobwebs, deail.

dry dock by ardclinis

dry dock

Like the low contrast and pastel effect ...think it is reminiscent of old seaside watercolours or postcards and adds pathos. Makes it quite painterly, which I nearly always like. (Andy: Not to say your high contrast seascapes don't work very well in a different way Smile )

They are happy, yep! I think they were probably watching the Ball, Robert.

Thanks for your comments!

afternoon light in the wood

This works for me, deceptive, subtle, underwater feel, thanks for posting it.

By the park by helenlinda

By the park

I like the treatment, emphasises the leaves and textures. As others have mentioned you are getting light wrap on some of the leaves from the bright sky.
I feel the title and especially the font distract my attention from the image, but clicking for the image Smile

Lillian by Barrynic


This says it as it is...(having lived in Shetland for many years I can attest to the bruck and rubbish that piles up on otherwise unspoilt shores) and I like it for that (though I am not too fussed about frames and titles).

My Name is Slim Shady ...... by NickBrandon

My Name is Slim Shady ......

Can't help with species but like the uncluttered dark background, looks great... was it evening as it looks a little warm in colour? or maybe that's just my eyes Smile

twilite by steviehutch


I like the saturation, foreground interest and clouds...agree with Mike re. the horizon which is a prime requirement

Dream a little by tjmort

Dream a little

Excellent composition, props, make up, colour etc for me, but spoiled by what I think is camera shake...possibly subject movement, reather than soft focus as mentioned by Steffi

Young Stag by rictac2

Young Stag

Thanks for your kind comments, I was miffed at the time that I could not get the angle to include his feet!
Last Sunday was a misty, dullish day in the Shropshire borders, but with, thankfully, enough downlight to give shape.

Last Daisy #12,678 by rictac2

Last Daisy #12,678

Thanks for the comments. There is a panel fence and a flower border because it was taken in situ in the garden, not the studio, and I just used the fact that it was in the shade to lose most of it and a couple of distracting points cloned out. I don't do a lot of this plant/insect close up type thing, so it fun trying it out...shrooms are on the list Wink, though I will have to work very hard to get near some of the excellent shots already on site, K Wink

Daddies girl2 by ggary

Daddies girl2

I'm not so worried about the crop, although I prefer the original. But I am pretty sure the lips, nose and eyebrows are the focus point, leaving the eyes slightly behind the focus and therefore not the sharpest point.

By: ggary

Lucy by vickifrance


Grrreat expression, strong colours and contrast.
Sorry to go against the grain, I don't know if it is my fading sight, my monitor, or what, but it doesn't actually look sharp anywhere to me. Compare with shot of shrooms immediately before this, flip between the two.

Standard by rictac2


Thanks for your nice comments folks. The 'misty' look is smoke from the cannon fire. While this often frustratingly obscures the subject it also sometimes gives an effective background.
