Stormy waters and a dark sky - combines very well. I can almost feel the wind when I look at the spray on the bigger waves. Maybe a bit more brightness on the rocks will give more definition.

You caught a good expression in the little face and also portray the cold and snow environment well. Unfortunately the boy is out of focus and there is also a lot of blur - looks like a tight crop of a much larger image.

What an interesting sales concept - more shops should try this.

About the photo -
I think you captured and portrayed the feel of this shop. I can almost feel it just looking at your creation. There are some darker areas but overall I think you managed the light very well under difficult conditions. Sharpness is acceptable and the spots of blue, red and yellow in the otherwise grey environment is for me the best part.

I'm sure my wife will have a splendid time in this jungle.

Good focus and colour in this shot. The fact that the roller has his meal with him makes it more than just a bird on a stick. You even managed to get a catchlight in the eye - well done. Pity a part of the tail feathers are missing.

I think you saw a very different picture in your minds eye when you took this and must have been disappointed with the outcome.
Sorry for the negative comments but as we are here to learn I would like to point out some of the 'wrongs' in this shot, not only for you but also for any of the members who read this:-
- very bright, overexposed area on the right draws you eye out of the picture
- the main object is very dark and has hardly any definition
- the main object very centre in the picture
- the sign on the top left shows only part of the wording - use a different crop or clone out.
- the photo is not in focus
- many smaller over exposed areas in the photo.

The definition an the could and water makes this photo. The orange hue on the left adds interrest and creates a distant attraction. you handled the light very well as there is good definition in all the darker rocks and no over exposed areas. Horizon placed on the top third works well and the bigger wave breaking the straight horizon add more impact.
Is the dark spot in the top right sensor dirt or a water droplet?

Nice bright sunny days as always a temptation for photos. The green plants is a good contrast for the otherwise very yellow/orange surrounding area. The texture on the rocks and sand is OK but can do with a bit more contrast. Unfortunately the white foam on the water is burnt out and without any definition.

this is a very interesting shot using the window to create multiple small frames for the picture in the background. You have a good range from almost pure white to black and handled the B&W conversion very well.

You created a very moody picture which shows the cold morning mist on the water. I like the mono colour palette. I think the lens glare is unfortunate - not sure if this could have been prevented by a lens hood as the shot was directly into the sun.
I find the very bright sun distracting and not adding anything to the photo. Maybe if it was not placed in the centre of the photo you could get away with it.

The trees on the left creates a good leading line into the picture. This is well balanced by the lone tree on the right. You managed the white sky well and although it is bright, there are no over exposed areas. Shadow areas adds definition and interrest to the white snow covered ground area.
