Hi a few weeks ago I visited  Light Spot Waterfall in the Long Mynd in Shropshire. It was a great little half-day trip and I loved it.  I took several photographs however this is my favourite! Smiley I would like to know what you think of this photograph!?

Hello Simon,
I guess you're waiting for some comment here - so here goes.
To be frank the image doesn't work for me. First, the light is unsatisfying - bottom 3/4's in shade the top in washed out sunshine. It does no favours at all to the subject - which doesn't really jump off the screen either. There are lots of elements - the moving water, the textured rock, the compositional lines - but for me they just don't gel into an image that grabs me.
I've checked out your web site as well and can see that you're well into experimenting with different tecniques. That's great - keep it up.
Find images you like, then work out how to imitate them , it's called practice - and practice makes perfect, eventually, sometimes! Smiley
Eventually you will probably find your own style - in the meantime have fun!
BTW I do like Landscape image No. 2, the Llandudno Pier. Suits my sensibilities.
Bear in mind Simon that these are just my opinions, others may see differently.
Cheers, Bob.

Simon, Not to kick you when you're down but it also looks as if there's a lens flare in the upper left. You can't afford that in this kind of picture.

Ok thanks a lot for the constructive criticism! Smiley Yeah I'm experimenting a lot at the moment. I can see what you are saying about the top being washed out by the sunshine. I will have a play with it in Photoshop to see whether I can recover some of it (fingers crossed). Oh and thanks for the compliment on the Llandudno Pier Photograph its much appreciated. Smiley
Thanks!
