A very appetising image Joan.
I don't think the lighting is too bad in my opinion....I want to eat it all, so you've done well!
I see someone has had a bite out of a piece....can't blame them....looks yummy!
I noticed the bite, too! But I would have had nothing left to photo!! Good shot, lighting doesn't look too bad to me. Having said that I know nothing about lighting and reflectors etc. I normally use a reading lamp ….
Entrance - I think the sharpened version is an improvement as the entrance serves to focus your eye on the pineapple structure.
Young - A clever concept. Shame it's not time for Beaujolais Nouveau at the moment to get some really young wine.
I'm liking the layout / composition. I have to agree with the comment by Jim regarding the white balance being a bit warm possibly.
Food - If anything, the placement of the fudge is even better than the wine in your previous shot, with the crumbs, the single piece and then the stack. White balance is better on this
Smooth - I don't mind the overcast, almost misty appearance of the background, it gives the bridge the appearance of coming out of the mist (albeit not dense). I like this shot
Great image for smooth Joan!
I don't mind the overcast light either....in fact it has an ethereal feel to it with the bridge sweeping off into the mist....nice!
The lines and curves work very well....nicely composed! 'Span'-tastic!
Distant - I like the sun on the hilltops, I really like picture of the sculpture itself the light on it is good..
Cold - cold and frosty indeed I like that you can see the fish.
Rough - right on theme the B/W and the Processing really enhance the rough feel.
Object - Good choice of object and I like the use of a magnifying glass.
Wet - I love the water droplets at the end of the catkins, very wet indeed.
Free shot - Great shot the B/W really suits it
Entrance - I love the pineapple building in the background.
Young - good take on the theme, well composed still life,
Food - looks good enough to eat.
Smooth - lovely image I like the mistiness
Fabulous perspective image Joan!
Who thought those boring old pylons could look so interesting!
The tones in the sky are terrific, and the lines work so well....really takes you on a journey up to the very top.
For SOOC it's especially good!
Very nicely done!
Entrance - I like the sharpened image, like that the pineapple is in the bg, makes a nice composition.
Young - Fun take on the theme, nice composition.
Food - Looks really appetising! You can see the texture of the fudge, shadows don't take anything away for me.
Smooth - Nice smooth bridge. I don't mind the overcast light. Think this one would really suit mono.
Above - Really like the perspective of this, like the way the wires enter and leave the frame. The tower also stands out nicely against the blue sky.
Hope you feel better very soon Joan.
Your image for the light theme is fantastic!
I just can't get enough of those colours....the flowers in the foreground seem to be mirrored in the sky...very creative!
And the band of golden light through the tree silhouettes is perfect!
If this isn't your finest hour, then I'm quitting right now!!
Hope you're feeling better now, Joan. Just a little catch-up from as I'm still trying to get up to date on my thread, and I do really like your image of the pylon for Above. I am envious as we don't have them here but I would love to try to get some images like this as they are clearly photogenic structures. It stands out well against the blue sky and you get a real sense of the height and size of it, too.
The dogs bursting out of the traps is an original choice for Hot and you caught the moment perfectly as they set off, while the colours in Light are superb and really well balanced from sky to foreground
