Hi Erwin, not easy to get a clear shot when they like to sit up high like that but you have still got a good amount of detail in the white feathers. Fiona

Hi Ian, at first I thought it was the sand itself that had the lines lol.. I do like the way one side has more straighter lines than the other. Good choice of b&w.. Fiona

Hi Erwin, the two biggest problems with this one are the blur and the way you erased the layer. Never blur the fore-ground as much as the back-ground, it makes it look weird lol..If there wasn't a jump there it wouldn't stand out as much but when there is something else in the shot you need to fade out the strength of the blur. When you keep the main subject in colour, use a soft brush to erase,especially around the edges, it stops that harsh line between the colour and the black and white back-ground. Hope that helps. And yeah I still have to re-do mine half the time.. Fiona

Hi Jimmy, you kept just enough of the sun hidden so it doesn't dominate the view and come out too in your face. Fiona

Hi Micheal, have to agree with Jack about the sky, but also needs a little bit more light on the rocks to bring out more detail.Not a lot so you keep the atmosphere. Did a quick ws hope you dont mind.I wish we had roads that smooth lol.. Fiona

Hi Jack, I saw the other comment about the bottom of the shot, maybe if there was less of the concrete? Cut it off at the wet line where the seaweed is? You did a good job of smoothing the water.Fiona

Hi Csaba, have you ever taken a shot of this same view at the other end of the day? Bet the colours would be just as warm. Fiona

Hi Vikramdev, you still managed to keep a lot of detail despite the blown out sky behind. Last time I got a shot like that it was raining so not much better. Hope you dont mind the quick workshop to show the difference with a new sky added. Fiona

Hi Dai, nice low pov and like the choice of b & w. It is a pity they didnt turn towards you so you got more of the face, maybe if you adjusted the shadows just a little the heads would have a little more detail. Fiona

Hi Michel, both ends of the day are always the best times for a trip to the beach. Nice light yet you can still see the early shadows on the water. Fiona

Hi Bob, Nice lighting and nice tight crop. I like the hair on one side being colour, it works well with the shot being cropped more on the right. Sorry but the eyes bug me a little, not because of the colour, but because you got part of the skin as well.lol.. Sometimes I will magnify a lot and do it a few times til I'm happy..Fiona
