I like the idea of creating the strength of the photo using contrasting colours. The result is excellent. Flawless composition with cute use of small ground area to anchor the boat to the shot. I like it. Watermark is HIGHLY disturbing... *s*
quite delicate portrait, with nice expression and pose. SLight crop at the bottom would be helpful perhaps? Nice, dispersed light. Perhaps some additional side light source would help to show better the shapes?
beautiful photo with fantastic shapes. Excellent colours transition from reds to dark blues. I wish I was there observing the scene! Two minor problems: I'd crop out small band at the bottom to eliminate a bit troubled water right of the center. Another is a bit too dark right part - perhaps some editing would help? Anyways it's still a beauty!
Sometime it is very hard to take a photo of a plant, flower or such without actually pick them and re position in a suitable place. I know a black background would have helped greatly to set it out, also now I am thinking it would have been better without the frame.
Thanks for the tips I value the feedback. I am totally new to photography. It has always been something I wanted to do but could never afford. I start with a Basic Photography course next week. so Hopefully the pics will improve.
I agree with Lee-Anne about the mood of the shot and its strenght. I think that less contrast would increase this mood. I think that the photo is oversharpened and this also disturbs reaching this mood.
welcome to PhotoPhun :-)
Nice try with good light and colours. I like the reflections. There are 2 problems though: one is lack of sharpness on the duck - I understand though that it was a snapshot. Another is placement of the duck within the frame - would be better if the bottom part of the photo was cropped out.
