Hi,

I like the background for this portrait.
Maybe it would have been nice to have the shade on the background be more clearly visible.

Hi,

I like the colours and dreamy feeling of the gleam.
Maybe you could have moved a bit closer to one of these people to put them more visible in the foreground.

Hi,

I like the lines and the shiny surface.
I don't like how the bumper is falling off and how the angle is just barely off-center.

Hi,

When shooting with a relatively wide angle like this, a big part of the image is in the foreground. You would do well to look for some interesting object to fill that part of the frame. That way you create more depth and it also makes for a more interesting shot.

Hi,

The composition looks very tight, at least at the front of the bike it feels like it needs a bit more space.

Looking at the background, maybe I would have tried a shot where the man would be completely in front of the wall, making it look like he is in camouflage. Perhaps making it black and white would then enhance that effect.

Hello David,

Nice to see the site functioning still. I've been there and these are pretty good close up shots in a warm bright light. Excellent colors and framing. Tfs!

Hello Jack

I like the repetition of the fg ripples in the sand which lift this superb sunset way above the ordinary. Nice silhouettes of the bg birds & they are just in the right spot of the highlighted sky. Tfs!

Hi Marine,

I walked past the scene in Las Vegas and through the Luxor Hotel next door back in 2008 when the world was a little less crazy. Such a tragic and senseless act. Tfs!

Hi Raimundo,

A lovely sunset but just lacking a little sharpness. It's easy to blur the sky if increased grain is a problem. I like the warm cold color contrasts between the hot and cold colours. Fabulous silhouettes. Tfs!

Nice choice of black and white which suits the zebras subject. Fantastic graphism & effective tight framing on the fg trio. Adequate breathing space too. Tfs!

Hi David,

Punchy light contrasts from the good density levels that have given clean whites and solid blacks. Superb sharpness and a fine upward pov on this floating city. You'd be surprised how many thousands of people can fit aboard these behemoths. Tfs!

Smart choice of a vertical format with excellent pp work & impeccable sharpness. The stylised skeletons in the fg are intriguing and the veiled women look remorseful or tired. Tfs!
