Hello Philip,

I certainly like the simiplicity of this shot. A cool early morning shot, looks like it was the start of a nice day. I do like the delicate tones of this photo. Well done.

Hello Janice, Interesting to see the way the lady is standing, with her hands on her hips, similar to the scultpure ! And an interesting photo to look at.. as it tells a story, especially with that view. It was a great day out my friend.

Cheers Dawn.

Hi Emma... I like monkeys too, they are so fasinating to watch, maybe we relate to them, cos they remind us of ourselves.. hehe.

Good catpure of his expression here, I do feel his face needs to be a tad sharper, did you sharpen this before uploading I wonder ? and yes I do feel like Hans, the space on the left is a bit distracting and could be cropped as per Hans workshop... although it is nice to see a bit of blur, maybe its a bit too much here, as the main subject is the monkey. Good eyecatching colours with the brown, orange and green. I hope you had a fun day.

Best wishes

Hi Emma... This looks an interesting place to explore.. and scenes like this always make good photos... I do think you need to be a little careful with your compostion here... take time when you are composing your shot look all around your view finder to see how you can improve it.. for instance you just chopped a little off the bottom of the gate and it would have been good to have just stepped back a bit and also got the top of the steeples of the church in.. just little things to remember.. but I do like the B and W conversion here. Its intereting to look around such places.. you have so much history there in England.. lucky you.

Hi Janice.. lovely capture of your son and grandaughter...love both expressions. You are so good at quickly capturing such photos..I would still be wondering which way to take it! Great sharpness, well done. And thanks for showing the photo in the workshop, im sure your family will be taking lots of visits there now. :-)

Kindest regards

Hi Emma, nice flower, pretty colour. The shot is a little soft for my liking, but then not everything has to be super sharp when it comes to taking photos of flowers.

You need to upload in a bigger size Emma, to crop this one in a workshop for a better composition, wouldnt work too well because it would look a little to small. But do try yourself to play around with different crops going in closer etc.

Have you managed to download photofiltre yet ? I would truely recommend it for easy use.

Best regards

Hi Emma, Leaves can be exciting subjects for photos, even dead ones! so keep an eye out in your autumn, a group of leaves together make nice photos too. SO its good you are looking. Good workshop from Janice.. a small crop makes the world of difference.

Keep snapping...

Unusual formation of clouds here Janice...and with a rainbow too. Nice capture of the family playing and enjoying themselves on Long Bay beach, but the round ball should be oval !

Hi Linda, Kite Surfing is big around my area, Wind Surfing we call it.. often seen at our beaches. The composition concerns me a little here, I think its the chimney/tower thing, being slightly to centred, and the ropes of the kite crossing over it, seems to distract. Never the less a pleasing shot capturing the action.

Kia Ora Janice, Te One roa o Kahu, nice place that....yes I could just see you running here, maybe I will take Jackson for a walk along here too. :-)

Beautiful capture my friend, love the inclusion of your grandson, nicely composed, good sharpness and the sky adds just a little drama.

Hi Emma, NICE tomatoes that Mitch grows! red is always an eyecatching colour in photography. One distraction here I feel is the OE sky through the window..maybe if you had of cropped the photo and taken that out, and the photo is far too small, needs to be 800 x 600. But I do like your POV.. well done Em.

Hi Emma...nice sunset tones here, and nicely composed, but maybe a slight crop from the bottom to get rid of some of the dark, and as mentioned above you need to straighten your horizon, you will notice if you scroll the photo up on this page, and look at the top line and line it up with horizion you will see its not straight. Picassa is a good and easy editing programme to straighten horizions. Thanks for sharing.
