AnnNicely lit but skin tones a bit muddy. Bit of a Curves tweak?

Jane in the Rain

Jane in the RainNice portrait Ade but the face & hair are totally blown out on my monitor. What are the white bits in the b/g. Was it raining?

The New Girl

The New GirlNice portrait Dave, well lit & tack sharp. I find the b/g a wee bit distracting - maybe blur it a bit more? - & I think you could do with a bit of backlighting to separate the back of her head from the b/g. Nice shot though.
PS - Hadn't noticed it till I read Dave's comment but I can see a bit of noise too.

Quiet Contemplation

Quiet ContemplationV3 is much better with more space for her to look into and the highlights toned down. I don't think there's too much white of the eye showing - she's gazing wistfully into the distance. If she was looking more towards the camera, that effect would be lost. It's a superb, beautifully lit image.
(That must be worth a pint at BCM! Smile)

Heads and Hands

Heads and HandsGorgeous colours & textures Dave & very nicely put together as ever. I think that white bit in the top right image needs toning down a bit though as it tends to pull the eye up there.

Going Down

Going DownCracking shot. Amazing sky & the couple are perfectly placed in the frame. Would have liked to see a bit more detail in the shadows but great stuff.

Winter Wood

Winter WoodAndy, this is not the ideal kind of image for HDR. Your camera should cope with this without it, indeed you say that the base image was ok. HDR is best used where you've got extremes of highlights & shadows beyond the range that your camera can handle. Try it indoors, in the house will do to practice. Set the camera on aperture priority & the metering to evaluative (or multi-segment, or whatever Nikon call it) & do 3 exposures at -2, 0, +2. The rest is down to tonemapping & subsequent faffing aroud in PS. Not sure why your results are soft. Probably down to using a Nikon. Wink Hope this helps a bit.

Monastic foundations

Monastic foundationsNice shot Neil, but 2 little niggles. I think there's some space wasted at the bottom of the shot. A slight tilt up of the camera would lose that & give more view of the ceiling. Also a slight pan left or maybe move the camera slightly to include all of the plaque would improve the composition. The second point is that the main window is a bit flat & lifeless compared to the others. I find this happens with hdr when it's dull outside & no strong light shining through the window. If you patch in the window from one of the individual shots, it can often give it a boost. But, as I said, nice shot. Hope you don't mind the crit. Smile
