Hi Hande, great shot with the trees in the background. Agree with the others that cropping would improve the strength of the shot. Kindest regards, Paul.

Patrick, this is a well exposed shot, having good composition, beautiful colours and a wonderful blue sky. However, there is no sense of movement. I think if you could take it again with a car moving through the shot with its headlights on so that it leaves trails, then I think you will have a really dynamic photograph. Kindest regards, Paul

Hi Francis, this is a well framed shot, but I hope you don't mind me saying that for me the shot is a little over exposed as the buildings are too bright. Great colours though and I love the reflection on the water. Kindest regards, Paul

Hi Murat, this is a great shot. The lighting is wonderful. The head simple leaps out of the shot and it is just off centre, which is perfect. I love the way the gentleman's jacket blends into the black background at the shoulder. Also his shirt looks like a river of silk. Superb shot, well done. Paul.

Hi Henk, good subject, location and lighting. I like the concept of hard location, against the softer ballerina. Where I think the shot could be improved is that the ballerina is static, I think the shot needs to show her moving, this would improve the shot immensely. Kindest regards, Paul.

Hi Denis, this is a great shot of a beautiful woman who has enjoyed a long life well lived. It really tells a story. My only critique is that the image would benefit from a little sharpening. However, when I tried this it highlights too much the hair which is across the lady's left eye, which is then distracting. I wish I could get shots like this, I am not very good at photographing people. Kindest regards, Paul.

Pedro, great movement of the water you have captured here. But I think the effect is lost a bit as the top half of the photo is a little weak in my opinion. I have posted a workshop where I have cropped off the top half of the photo, which I think makes the moving water look much stronger. I also sharpened the image a bit. Alternatively, you could try the shot again at a different time of day when the shadows are longer in the top half of the photo, that would work also. Kindest regards, Paul

Luca
Great, strong composition here. I like how the standing lamp and the door frame split the shot vertically into thirds. The desk and chair offer interest to the left, the centre is relatively empty, and the right is full of interest with great reflections.
A very well composed shot my friend.
Kindest regards
Paul

Lesley
Great 'shot' ;o)
Compo is spot on, you could easily have gone to pot on this one and got it wrong. The graininess of the photo and the light hanging in mid air is right on cue.
Wonderful work.
Sorry about the pun-athon. Couldn't resist.
Loving your work.

Bit of artistic licence used here giving Zippy one ear! I don't remember him having any. Apparently Jeffrey now stocks supermarket shelves for a living, how the mighty have fallen.
Great original idea for a photograph.
