Mexico. Waiting for the bus

Mexico. Waiting for the busLooks well focused to me so at 125/sec it seems you may have stopped and held still. Composition is pretty much ideal. I may have used ISO 400 and 1/800 or 1/1000 sec to more or less bracket things for more texture, yet your texture and colour saturation seems very pleasing. It will take someone more imaginative than I to suggest any way to improve this one. I think you nailed it. TG

Shearwater.Your composition is good with the diagonal shoreline and the minimum plain sky. These tend to look good with a light point from behind the trees. Starting landscapes at the top Martin?, Although others will point up some technical stuff probably. You could have laid down a bicycle or something in that foreground patch but otherwise a damn good morning shot. TG

old tractor

old tractorHere is a tiny tweak or rule of thumb. This is an excellent image of yours. It is often a good idea to have the back , [ rear wheel ] near the frame and so allow more front room. I suspect you liked that bit of stone wall. Your tractor is a total winner on its own. Human nature seems to prefer things a little to one side or the other. Also quick bracketing for this could be by shutter speeds ex; 1/250 - 1/500 - 1/640.

Arch in Louvre gardens.

Arch in Louvre gardens.This has good promise yet it's two in one. The arch would look great closer up same angle keep the lamp in from left side frame to outer edge of the tree behind the arch. Lone statues on top of each pillar could deliver a good shot or two. Guess you are no where near this now. Oh well, you could close crop the arch from this image maybe. TG

AlidiaYes, you seem to have made some art moves. The fingernails, and did you remove a towel or something from the hand? A lovely image and I can not say if she is real or a magical beauty. The nails could be a pale green so they blend in less noticed. You didn't ask though so I apologize. Wonderful beauty and a perfect crop too.
Don't get me wrong, this is still so fresh and powerful. TG

Old Salen fishing boats

Old Salen fishing boatsIs that license to be constructive Ann? I would crop the plain sky down to the top cloud band and extend the beach on the right side,..[forward side]. The dark hull next to the left frame...[rear side] is perfect. Then your hulls subject would less ' dead center'. If right side beach is not possible then be assured you still have a fine image here.

Damselflies on Lily

Damselflies on LilyImagine that 1000sec @ ISO 320 would do well, however this looks
fine. Not much evidence of noise / speckles. Interesting and attractive image. TG

DanielleI guess nipples don't mean that much. The first two are excellent. The lighting is super. The graduated focus lends a real softness and her direct gaze shows she is at ease. Thanks for the pose ideas. You let her shine. Well done!! TG

Crane . Heron

Crane . HeronGreat pose and direct look. I wonder if the ISO was reduced from 400 to 100 and shutter speed up from 300 to 800 would darken things and enrich colour? This then is a classy ultra white portrait of a sexy heron. TG

SquirrelNice image yet it can be stronger if cropped much closer. Say, bringing the tail to within a half inch of the right frame and proportional on all sides? TG

Squirrel monkey

Squirrel monkeyReligious little monkey eh?... with his hands crossed. This is a lovely portrait and you can make it 100% by cropping the FG half way up to those crossed hands. Hope we are still friends. TG

MadridI wonder why some viewers failed to vote? Moving to the right to avoid the hedge is impossible. That would move the lamps over the building. They belong against the sky. Adding light to the dark hedge seems the only real adjustment for this otherwise super image. TG

Confined to the memories

Confined to the memoriesA little too bright for the dark stone mood of this place. I would be careful about making any headstone text directly public. Better to mention dates and a name or two in the photo details. Composition is pretty good here, just dial down the light a bit. TG

sunrise to remember

sunrise to rememberThis is a pleasing and well thought out image. The drained drinking glass and the super arrangement and the level horizon, [proving you are not under the influence], all work to provide a satisfying story result. TG

Light and Shadows

Light and ShadowsNow that I have had time to stew about this, there seems to be a thing the pros do here. You want that highlighted cloud and the backlight so I think the big equipment guys would place two or three slave flash or floods in the grass on this side to light up the church. TG

wish the rain would stop

wish the rain would stopThis is an excellent portrait idea. Although taken in dull flat lighting, this would be good to see again, exact same angle, but in warn sunset light across the relief of the wall and your model. Only this time lighting will be tricky and your model will be required to have a genuine smile to reflect the warm light. Not so easy. TG

keeping out of the rain

keeping out of the rainLooks like you have plenty of fine detail there. I suspect ISO 800 with a 7D would allow a 1/3rd crop from the right side. That would still leave the best part of Mum's wing and bring the little one closer. Comp would be improved with tiny at 1/3rd and not at bullseye position. Trim from top for format. TG

*****A classic right from the thumbnail. Only suggestion is crop the upper overhead part 2/3rds from top. That way it's not so heavy and is a bit like a tam. Is there a little more neck to slide down a bit? I like this very much. TG

Isola San Giulio

Isola San GiulioThe sky is nothing here. You can lose it and crop 20% on all four sides for a better image and still have good composition. There is a photo within a photo and it is really beautiful too. TG

the castle

the castleTwo steps up for more castle and a thin slice of sky, plus thin the branches 50% and in dawn or evening cross light, this will work! TG
