Hi Mike, I love this type of shot, it's so atmospheric. However, if you are trying to make it look like a painting, surely it should not look so sharp. Paintings, especially oils, are not cutting sharp. Maybe a very light canvas texture, soft focus, or something of that ilk may just add that little bit extra. I do find it frustrating though because I am diabetic and although I would dearly love to eat a well buttered slice of this bread, I cannot do so. Great shot all the...

Beautiful sharpness and blur. Further gives the exposure pretty colors. The composition is simple, but good. Thanks foro sharing.

Good macro, nice camera angle for a good photo. The lighting and composition are well done, maybe a small crop the bottom. Keep on shooting.

Nothing to improve. The lighting, the colors, the DOF, and background are all perfectly suited the flower. I think the centering works in this case. A little more stem showing might have been interesting. It's hard to give a 3TU to a flower :) but I did anyway.

I see what you are going for here but somehow the guy/lady whatever at the front that is not on a vehicle but behind the barrier is taking away from the theme here. Sorry, but she needs to be zapped right out of this photo.

Magical, there's not a lot more I can say. So soft and translucent, very pleasing to the eye, nicely done

Lotus is my favorite subject. This one is well captured with just the right amount of depth where the pedals are clear and the background is blurred. Nice exposure with excellent diffused lighting. The leaning implies a diagonal composition which is pleasing. I particularly like the ripple reflect faded in the background.

This is a nice shot of a jasmine flower. The flower has a simple structure that stands out well from the background. While backgrounds can often be a distraction in a shot like this, here I think it is a plus. The color is deep and the flower shows well against it and although blurred, there is enough detail in the leaves to add interest. The flower is also placed in a good part of the frame. It appears to me like there may be a little excess sharpening done though...

This B&W image lacks tonal range. I see primarily gray all across. The wave and the rock has the same texture and same tonality. It makes an awful busy image.

Yes, shooting into the sun (backlighting) is the best kind of lighting for most situations. But I find this one, the sun is still a bit to high and hot. Another hour or so, the ray would be a lot warmer and the result would be a lot better. You specifically mentioned "no filled light". I don't know what you got against filled light. Unless you have a white wall or light color building behind you, a fill light would give the portrait the spark by lighting up the eyes...

Very good capture dear Adam. Three colors have wonderful contrast and pattern and composition looks very nice to me. Those dirt acts like dual blade sword, does not look pleasant, but shows how real does this shot look. Cheers, Mehrdad

The idea of having the rocks and current in the foreground to set the perspective is sound one. But I find that the rocks are not close and large enough, and the ripple/reflection is distracting. Lighting, exposure and sharpness are good. You may have over done a bit on the warming filter, particularly the color of the clouds.

I like this shot Matthew. You achieved good focus on the ladybug and a lot of detail is evident. I also like that the insect is on the underside of the leaf rather than the more predictable position of on top of it. The leaf itself also makes a good lead into the frame. The black background shows off the subject well and is not at all distracting. Composition-wise I wish that the subject was not so close to the top of the frame however. By the way, don't forget to...

I would say this image has a certain impact because the HDR is making it sort of different from what we really see in a bar. It makes it a very well lited and colorful lights. What make is really different is the lack of shadow. It seems someone was going around with a handheld torch to lite every fold of shadow. Although I would say this is quite pleasing, I find the the lighting and the color is making it an awful busy picture.

Wonderful, I love it. The brown overall tint brings the feeling of a coming storm and all the roughness of nature is here. The only nitpick I can bring up, at the left end the panorama sort of floats away, so maybe it would be good to cut near the group of taller plants. The contrasty clouds, with the distant air suggest rain. Thanks for sharing, Robert. -Adam
