Happy - A real nice image that, good focal point, very effective DoF, scrummy looking chips and doesn't looked staged at all, a great little football ground image :)

Camouflaged - Soooooooooo many buttons I gave up looking for the intruder :whistle: - A real nice busy colourful image

Dangerous - Very true !!! ... well in my opinion :)

Hi Jeff. Topical certainly especially in relation to this forum and this theme. A bit one-dimensional but like the DoF.

I think the shallow DOF adds a kind of depth and adds interest to this image, also it draws me back to the date on the publication. Well shot.

Hello Jeff, good idea for the theme, I like the DoF but it could also work the other way.

Nice image Jeff - giving us all hope of spring just around the corner. Lovely colour - like the single bloom composition.

Hi Kenny, topical is a solid image for the theme - works and gets you onto the next week which is half the battle for us all.

I really like your choice of image for Living World. I think your POV is spot on and the composition/lighting of the background is totally spot on - the mix of bokeh, highlights on leaves on floor all just come together to create a very balanced and interesting image. I do however feel the subject itself is lacking a bit of punch - perhaps it's slight soft but for me it's more about the lighting. Some strong backlighting (coming through the petals etc.) would really make it sing, or a bit of directional fill to give the yellow flower a bit more shape.

Still, it's a very good shot!

Topical - I really like the way the colours along the top, contrast with the prodomantly B&W image.

living world - Lovely lighting on the daffodil :clap:

Great shot for Spiky Jeff I like the central positioning of the spike. The B&W really suits the image.

Gloucester Docks is somewhere I really need to get down to with the camera its only about an hour away

Spiky - great take on the theme, spot on! Only crit from me is the clouds look a little over processed for me, a little too HDR maybe? Really like the composition and the steps leading down into the shot though! (y)

Nobody can argue about it not being themed - that is a spike unquestionably. I really like the contrast and detail between the hard surface of the spike and the puffy white clouds. :clap:

Yep that is definitely spiky, I like the central positioning of it and the path leading up to it.
