sleeping awake beauty.

sleeping awake beauty.For me, nice idea, too many distracting grasses in front of the subject, the horizon is wonky which for me is distracting and if your gonna chop the legs off, Ide go above the knee or leave all in as it looks fragmented and awkward.
Than said, pretty girl nice pose, good idea, just needs a little work.

KiyoLooks a good pan and well filled frame.
But it also looks over contrasty to me and the blacks are well black, I know the lighting was harsh, I did saturda and sunday at Oulton and have suffered from the same thing.
Try adding fill light and a touch of blacks in raw conversion, and even reduce the contrast a touch to put the detail back in, dont want to tell you how to suck eggs but Ide rather say than not.
Jealous that you got to see race day live too, watched it on tv :O(

Jetty (Remains)

Jetty (Remains)I have had a quick look at your folio as you seem to be from around the same area, and you have some good shots, for me the photo info blazed across them is very distracting and spoiles the images.
Make a header and put your ad up top, then the images can be seen clearly.

Sandsend Groynes 2

Sandsend Groynes 2Hi Phil, the only thing that bothers me is the tightness of the framing, I would like to see at least the same amount of sky again on top, just to let the image breath.
Its a little cramped for my taste, but exposure wise and choice of shutter speed is spot on.

Wind Power V2

Wind Power V2This is an improvment compositionaly from the first shot, It has potential, I would have moved to the right if pos to stop the upper branches hitting the clouds.
There is enough texture and presence in the tree for the shot to be stark and minimalist, that said its a decent mono, maybe needs a touch more contrast.
I do like Niknuts mod too.

LindisfarneI doubt very much there many first time shots anywhere, even if they havnt been photographed they will have been painted or drawn long ago.
But it still takes a bit of skill to go do the "must have" shots and do them justice, which I believe you have.
I like the sky and the composition, though I do feel Magpie is a touch high in the frame, but thats personal taste.
Well done, time you got back to Saltwick Wink

Long exposure at the beach

Long exposure at the beachHi Steve, you need to shoot about an hour before sunset or within the golden hours, witch is about half hour before sunrise tll the light gets too harsh, and about an hour before sunset till the light goes but watch for the afterglow as it can be better than the sunset itself.
To get movement in the midday times you may need an ND10 or Big Stopper filter to get the shutter speed slow enough for water movement.
If all you have are NDs then you could try stacking them, ie 2 or 3 together, just remember this is 6 more surfaces for the light to bounce around and increases the chances of flare.
Hope thats of some use.

Rosedale Mist

Rosedale MistThere is scope here I think Leigh, im gonna say, try a longer lens.
Now they all think im nuts, but it could make a difference, instead of trying to capture the whole vista, seek out the element that sparked your yearning to shoot the scene.
Home in and you will see with fresh eyes.
Gold star for getting up tho

dianaHi Kat, I dont think the dress is that bad TBH, in fact I think you did well to keep it detailed, the only thing i would say is maybe the use of a reflector to bounce light into her face, a gold reflector will add warmth, but a cheap one is a peice of card, then cover it in crumpled tin foil.
Nice pose and gaze, so I would say good shot.

EmmaI realy like 2, she looks great in that and has your "now" look, verynice I like the timber on the left and the rest of the shelter in the back ground.
As for 1 well, first I would keyline it, a white ( as you have an area of black on the edge of the frame) 1-2mm line to seperate it frm the frame, I like the shot but think it would work better cropped, cracking eye contact and confidence from Emma, I think its a good effort, out of ten, I will give 1, 6/10 and 2, 8.5/10
But they do get my vote, that concludes the voting from the whinging old git.

1988 BMW E30 M3

1988 BMW E30 M3For me your crops are getting too tight, the panning is good and the exposure too, but the car has no room, leave it a little room to move into and the shots will look far better, I am keeping an eye on your folio and the only thing bothering me is the crop.
I am saying this as for me its better to let you know now rather than you get used to shooting or editing your pics this way.
I am not a pro sport tog by any means, but have learned the hard way.
Keep em coming, your doing well.

Regards, SteveC
