    Nice commentary on the difference between communicating via technology vs. face-to-face interaction.  Cropping the right side would make the photo better balanced, but this is a case where an ...
  • I don't need to be gentle because I like the photograph.  The processing is a little off however.  Here's the histogram.  Notice that it's shoved to the left.  That makes the photo dark (because ...
  • Greetings, You're off to a good start. The most obvious feedback will not be news to you- shooting at the beach on a sunny afternoon is very difficult due to the harsh sunlight.  Sometimes you can ...
  • How about entering some of the dpreview challenges?  There are always several challenge subjects that can be shot anywhere.  It could be fun and interesting.  Or at least look through the ...
  • I'm going to assume that by "great" you mean artistically and not financial value, other utility, etc. If a photograph is unintentionally out of focus, poorly exposed, or has a composition that ...
  • Commented on Czech Mate in the MiGs challenge

    That is a very cool shot.

    There are several things that could be better: more light on her face, a stronger expression, an angle that shows what she's doing. I like the colors. Hope you don't mind, I applied a Photoshop ...
  • It's a valid point, but people use this reasoning to be rude way too often online.  I've read enough posts from Klaus dk (the OP) to know that he tries to help people with honest criticism.  I'm ...
  • I could be wrong, but this sounds like a thinly veiled question.  Most likely you feel that you've been helpful and patient with someone and they keep ignoring you, so now you want to put them ...
  • Nice job on these.  The phone camera did well.  The first one is my favorite.  It gives a good feel for the scale of the building, and it has a nice sky which is reflected in the shiny surface. Tha ...
  • There's something strange going on near her shoulder.  It looks like some of her hair and part of the chair got cloned out.  Other than that it looks great.
  • I'm not an expert on macro photography, but to my eye the watch looks sharp despite the fact that the depth of field is very narrow.  Good job.  Have you checked out the Macro and Still Life ...
  • There are several things that work really well- stunning scenery, nice expression, road creating a leading line. What doesn't quite work in my opinion is the subject's expression together with the ...
  • Greetings, You're taking a photo of a moving subject at 1/60s, f/5.6 through the aquarium glass.  The shots look pretty sharp considering the conditions.  I recommend trying another set of test ...
  • One issue that maybe has not gotten enough discussion given its importance is how color directs the viewer's eye. For example, in the color version of the baby photo below, the nose really stands ...
  • Replied in Follow me
    I wrote my previous post when I was very tired.  Re-reading it now I don't think I explained myself very well.  The reason I want to clarify what I said previously is that I absolutely agree with ...
  • Replied in Follow me
    I've noticed recently that whenever anyone mentions following the standard composition rules there are usually several people who respond by saying that rules are meant to be broken. It's almost ...
  • Replied in back light
    I like it.  I think the lighting and composition work well.  It gets the imagination going if you let it. Nice job seeing this one, jbf
  • Edit: Was posting instructions here but saw that you figured it out. Nice job on the photos, jbf
  • Congratulations on the feature. I've been a fan for a while. Please keep posting your work. It's great!
