The Music Man

The Music Man by Irishkate

V1 for me Kate. Quite a strong male portrait, and to my eye, this kind of image really suits monochrome. Maybe a touch more contrast? Overall, a really good piece of work. Well done!


Thistle by Irishkate

Another good composition and presentation. Just losing sharpest focus on thistle head. Maybe f8 and a tripod would have done the trick? Sorry to seem hyper critical, Kate. Got my judge's head on! Did you get your focal point prioritised to that head?

Cow Vetch

Like the presentation, and well thought out blue keyline picking up the flower's colour.

Delightful triptych! What a lovely set for the 'memory bank'.

Green & Pink

Green & Pink by Irishkate

A lot to like in this one, Kate. The bottles are certainly "floating" and need shadows to give them a base. An excellent exponent of digital fine art photography gave me this tip re adding a shadow. I quote: "a fine dark line around the base of the object (bottle, lamp post or whatever) sits it firmly on the ground. Then draw out the shadow away from the direction of the light, gradually fading it out as it recedes. Do all this on a separate layer, ABOVE the image you want the shadow on. That way, if you mess up, you can bin that layer and try again without messing up your photo."
Hope this helps?

Montbretia in Green Bottle

Montbretia in Green Bottle by Irishkate

No probs for me with shadows in a still life. Trev is right, though. Try to throw the shadows to one side or the other next time. Would also help "fill"a blank piece of wall, and thus would "balance" a composition. This said, you are really mastering this technique so well!

Beautifully presented. Really lovely piece of work.


Clover by ChristineD

Absolutely beautiful. Skillfully executed - and WHAT an imagination!



Beautifully done. You're a real master at this textured overlay technique!



Well executed. Such a different way to show a flower!


Katherine by AnnChown

A lovely, stylish lady. You've done her justice!

Wood anemone

Wood anemone by Fotomanic1

Like the way you've isolated the anemone which is well exposed and nice and sharp. Another time consider tweaking out those annoying upright blades of grass they are rather well defined and fight for attention.

Some really stunning images, Ann! Sitting in a hide has really paid off - so don't worry about not being able to hike up mountains and along rushy glens! You've got patience - and stacks of stunning shots as a result! Keep up the good work!
