Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

A couple from near our new home. How do these sit with you?

Re: Northern Ribblesdale

I have looked at these a few times now.

The second would be my pick of the two. I like the more obvious framing, and very sharp silhouetted trees.

The first is very good. It is very moody and the crepuscular rays come through nicely.

But for me personally, there is just a little too much black at the top and bottom.

Re: Northern Ribblesdale

Thanks for looking and commenting, Garry. I guess you can crop according to how the image is displayed. My intent in this case was to try to give three bands of equal height.

Re: Northern Ribblesdale

Hi StephenL

I have to admit, that while I was commenting. I was also thinking of the rule of thirds, and I can see that you applied that thinking.

Re: Northern Ribblesdale

I with Garry on this one, the second image is both well observed and processed IMHO.

Re: Northern Ribblesdale

Thank you, Stuart. Because of the location I could only vary my viewpoint laterally and not forward or backward, with a fixed length lens.

Re: Northern Ribblesdale

I just like looking at number two.

It has taken me a couple of days to make comment after several viewings.

Number one ain't half bad.

Re: Northern Ribblesdale

I really like the distinct layers you've captured in the first image and the second image is especially well done. Bravo!

Tony

Re: Northern Ribblesdale

Thanks Barrie, I will attempt to correct this oversight when I return from HK and Oz!
