Toxicxk23: Simple and beautiful shot! Pay attention to the chromatic aberrations on the edges of the pedals though!

Thank you

Good I didn't buy a macro lens yet. Waiting for LED inbuilt EF-S 90mm f/2.8 STM

On photo Papaya leaf in the What Do You Not Like About This Picture - # 2 challenge (9 comments in total)
In reply to:

JerryShots: The 'artist' (ms18) won me over with their irrepressible good attitude and crazy expression. They said this was the best challenge they had ever participated in on DPR. So I took more and deeper looks into 'the Art' itself...
It is a little difficult to understand in the way Bibix noted. Looking at the full size image, there are nice textures in the leaf and plenty of detail which do not show at smaller view sizes. I think the vertical part of the leaf that juts straight up at the camera detracts a bit from the other wise uniform depiction of the leaf, but this is a very small detail a little editing might remove that portion not in focus.
Looking beyond the leaf to other aspects of the shot, I can't help but disagree with the comment that "the leaf is almost swallowed by the background." I feel there is good separation from the background as the leaf is very sharply defined or outlined.

Thanks for your critiques :D

In reply to:

dlschulz: Nice image of a leaf. If there is anything wrong it is the "match" between the texture of the leaf and the blurred background. I feel the leaf is almost swallowed by the background. I think either a plain black background or a much finer texture would have made the picture pop.

Thank you

Bibix: Difficult to understand, is it one or two mixed leaves?

It is one leaf. :D

People are ok but what about using them for some creativity? You need a tripod. Got the point? Don't worry that you are already on ISO100 and F8 all you need is a tripod. Don't you have ND filter? Don't worry take more shots and blend it to get ND filter effect with more resolution.

This is the great picture even though the eye is not visible . There is a slight shadow on the face. People tend to see the brightest part first. May be some dodging there and burning in other areas might help.

On photo Forest Power-2 in the What Do You Not Like About This Picture - # 2 challenge (3 comments in total)

I really agree with JerryShots in this picture despite he had comment the same for my picture as well :D

Biggest problem of this photo is It is technically not sharp. It has other issues as well but we should start from wherever we are standing at this very moment. I would have accepted this If it is comes from a old mobile phone. A successful photo does not need to be technically sharper. But from the EXIF i know you this was taken from a camera. May be a flim camera? or the focus is awfully wrong?

On photo Egret's graceful flight in the What Do You Not Like About This Picture - # 2 challenge (11 comments in total)

1) Cropping
Leave some space in right. So the bird will have some space to fly in.

2) Highlight
Have you over exposed it? Did you try recovering highlights? Oh may be you can do some photoshopping to under expose the bird a bit to bring some highlights.

On photo Mr. Green in the What Do You Not Like About This Picture - # 2 challenge (12 comments in total)

Every one won't like the soft focus error. Second is background is bit cluttered. May be you would have used some low F number?

On photo Wise Eyes in the What Do You Not Like About This Picture - # 2 challenge (14 comments in total)

I think you would have gone bit left when taking this photo. it is seems like you had taken from a slight right angle. Other issue is depth of field. The tip of the nose (I don't how to call that for birds in English :D) is not sharp. Eyes are sharp but the nose being out of face is destroying the picture along with the slightly off angle.

Thank you.

On photo Mask for CT Scan in the What Do You Not Like About This Picture - # 2 challenge (3 comments in total)

Only way to make this even better (Because it is already outstanding) is to do some out of the world post processing within the CT scan hole (Now hidden in shadows) and show some thing like you see in fantasy or Sci-fi movie ..

In reply to:

sparkey2: I may stand alone here but I find the downed log on the right to be a minor distraction.

I was about to mention that. If the photographer could lift and carry. It will be better placed bit downwards
