  • You Shall Have a Fishy...

    I like the colour subtleties in sky and water. Probably, in compositional terms, the boat is too far to the left ie I think it should be moving into the picture. But sometimes you don't have a choice - can't ask the guy to back up a bit! Well processed too.

    Brilliantly captured. Was this early morning light? My own photos of GC aren't nearly as vibrant.

  • Unknown beach bird

    Michaelo,

    I think it's a turnstone in Winter plumage. In summer they have more white on the head. Most seen in the UK are winter visitors though a few are resident (non-breeding).

    Paul,

    What a good eye you have! I've uploaded a version with adjusted contrast, to add drama to the long wall and more detail to lighthouse. Just a matter of personal taste.

  • Pots In The Rain

    Rhyd,

    In the original photo, the relative brightness of the signage colour is very distracting, so Ian's modifications are apt. But I'd put two further thoughts in your mind.
    The first is that the background is almost in focus so the eye is drawn away from the main subject by the human figure and the seats (which I initially thought were urinals!) in the cafe. So, in addition to the b/w conversion, I think you should blur the background. A difficult cutting-out exercise - perhaps a mask layer
    The second (always easy to be wiser after the event when the event includes bucketing rain) is that if your viewpoint had been further back (or lower) the pots and their texture would have been more dominant. If the viewpoint had been lower, the distracting signs might have been avoided.
    Despite all that, I like it.

    Three points to consider:

    1 There is a blue cast that shows up in the gable ends and distorts colour values in sky, grass etc
    2 The "bits" in the sky are dreadful. Is this a composite?
    3 The roof of the car! Should be cropped or cloned out - or ideally composed out originally

  • Peep oh!

    I thought there was a clue in there somewhereTongue
