Nice shot Michel. Great sky and a nice silhouette too. For my tastes, this might be a little tightly composed, but it is still a very pleasing shot to look at.

Good shot Felipe. Very nice toning, nice diagonal composition and a good job avoiding blowouts in key areas. Nice shot.

I really like this. I am not sure how you were able to create this from only four photos, I guess it was a very rapid sequence when all four people were walking into the building. Anyways, it is very nicely done. Good idea and good photoshop work.

Hi Rocky. The flower looks good here, but as a macro I think you can take a little more care in setting things up to make the shot more pleasing. first, your background is quite distracting. Things like this work much better when the background doesn't detract from the main photo. If you could, hand a piece of dark, solid colored cloth or paper behind the flower, so that is all that is seen, it will really help to highlight the flower. Also, I would consider coming in a little closer, and moving the center of the flower off center, with some of the petals being cut in half by either the left or the right edge of the frame. Centered shots are usually not as interesting to our eyes as those moved off center. Your lighting and exposure looks good, I don't see any areas lost to black or spots which are blown out. Good start, I am just learning myself how challenging macro work is.

Very nice still life shot David. I saw this earlier on TE, I am assuming you deleted it from there to post here. I think that was the right thing. This is a well done work with the lighting and the overall effect is excellent.

This is a really well exectuted series I think Jorn, well done. Of the photos, the one top left is my favorite, as having her far left in the frame has created an interesting line/perspective to where she is going. Your daughter sure looks to be having fun and couldn't look more Danish.

Really nice shot David, a great capture of the hawk. Your photoshop work is very well done too, although I have to admit, I was a little dissappointed to read that this capture was not exactly what it appeared on screen. This is probably just a shortcoming on my part, but I just was hoping this was a "pure" capture. No matter though, the hawk looks great and the photo is super appealing.

Hi Dana. I really like this shot. Your use of shallow DOF is very good here as is your b&w conversion. I like the diagonal line of the newspaper too, but what I like most is the look he is giving you. He just thinks you are nuts ;)

Good shot Claudia, very nice. It looks to me as though this was actually shot in b&w, not altered in PS. Either way, it works very well. Composition is very good, nice use of open space to really highlight your Mum. What film was this? The grain suggests to me it is a higher speed, I like it.
