Rab ... Heat is on theme, you're focused on the flame but I think you need to bring the ISO down. Plus - as stated above - a tighter crop or get in closer maybe.

yea the iso is rather hi cheers for taking time out to give feedback guys&girls

Heat - the edit definitely improves it and gives a more balanced image. I think you've captured the flame really well, but maybe slightly stronger highlights on the holder to make it stand out better from the bg?

Figures - a really playful image with smashing colours. A big thumbs up back at you! (y)

Well done with the light-box and speed-light job, things I know nothing about, but it looks good.

Household....I've got a ridge tile that needs replacing if he's got a minute!

Limit...Road signs was where my thoughts wet to as well.

Bizarre....Well, it is!

Broken....Oh dear. That is rather a sad sight :(

Limit - fits the theme and the sign contrasts well against the oof trees in the bg, but I would have been inclined to clone out some of the other distracting signs and the traffic lights.
Bizarre - yes it certainly is!
Broken - great spot, agree with the others that a closer viewpoint or crop would improve the composition.

Entertain - Fits the theme well and the plenty of detail and texture in the domino box, the playing cards aren't as sharp but I think that is down to the light reflecting on the cellophane wrapper. My only critique would be that maybe using arranging a few of the actual cards and dominos might work slightly better. (y) all the same

Spiral - I like this, the bright pink stands out against the dark background and surface. As to CC I've noticed on the last 2 that the background is a little textured which I am finding a little distracting. With spiral in particular I would maybe increase the blacks so that rather than dark grey, you have a black background. I hope you don't mind but as you have edit images set to yes I had a quick play. Please let me know if you would like it deleting (thumbnail so as not to detract from yours). Personally I think the pink reflection stands out a bit more too. All I did was to increase the blacks

Hi Rab. Both shots fit their respective themes without a doubt and both are quite colourful. Entertainment: You could try re-positioning the three items at an angle to the camera so that they create shadows and increase the dimensional effect. Spiral: Nice combination of colours and simple, straightforward composition - agree with Chris about the black.

Spiral: Nice and colourful. I too used a slinky for this weeks theme. You've taken yours at a different angle to me. Love the bright pink, contrasts well on the black

Hi, entertain and spiral are both on theme but I think you can do much better.

You need to experiment with composition, get in closer, try different angles to make them a little more interesting.

Who doesn't like slinkies, though :)

Cheers.

Hi Rab. Good to catch up ... particularly as the next is due.

Silhouette: Whoa - looks a bit of a dodgy character to me (ha ha)
Animal: Like the proud pose with the head up.

Both good shots - well done.
