"Simple" and beautiful...your art shows through again. The first is my favorite. You may want a tad noise reduction in the last.

Lovely stuff Birdie! #1 is also my pick. An effective comp. All are nice, but those coneflowers are really well done. The last one is interesting too. Looks like you handled it fairly well.

I really enjoy the set Birdie! It gives a very nice feeling. Perhaps the last image does it for me. I see a fire within! Great job!

Another very nice set Birdie. I do have a few nits for you though. These are my impressions, and YMMV
1 - I'd like to see this in more of a landscape format with some taken off the bottom. i do love this shot though, and it's my pick too.
2 - You might try taking some off the right side here - maybe 1/2 so that the flower is still off center.
3, 4, and 5 - no nits

Thank you David, that is one of my favorites also . I know those cucumber beetles cause lots of damage, but they sure are photogenic with their coloring.

"Simple" and beautiful...your art shows through again. The first is my favorite. You may want a tad noise reduction in the last.

Thank you so very much Eric. Tried more noise reduction and reposted.

Lovely stuff Birdie! #1 is also my pick. An effective comp. All are nice, but those coneflowers are really well done. The last one is interesting too. Looks like you handled it fairly well.


Ken, appreciate your comments very much. The area has so many of the wild coneflowers , it really is pretty neat to see.

Thank you so much Khai. You are seeing what I did . This sliver of sun just lit up the area.

Here are the redo's -- what do you think? I do like number 2 better. No. 1, I'm still trying to decide. I like that part of the out of focus reed is gone


They do look better to me Birdie. But it boils down to what you like - you don't have to make me happy. What you leave out can be just as important as what you leave in. I am reminded of a wedding photo I saw that had the wedding couple posing on a beach. Trouble was that there was a nude couple walking in the bg. A funny shot, but probably not one you would want in your wedding album...

A wonderful set, Birdie.
The first (especially the redo) and the last warm me heart- they are super B.

Another beautiful set, Birdie.
I love the first three images and you captured a very nice mood in the last one.
Isn't it great to be able to shoot at iso 3200 in situations like that?

Hello Birdie......

I came after a few edits but it is nice to hear what others are saying, that silly Ron guy has a good eye

#1 Love it for comp! Sharpness at the eyes is great. My thoughts.........appears as if you may have pushed the saturation a bit extra here, for me it carries over onto things other than the subject that then compete with your subject a bit. Perhaps selecting just the eyes and body to make adjustments to would benefit the image??

#2 I like the shot........saturation appears a bit strong, may be a bit too much on the yellows but from a style standpoint it is refreshing and vibrant

#3 I might be being a bit nit picky but ............looking at the stick the color is not neutral as I would expect it to be. If and when you push any color overall into an image it will raise those levels of the slightest color cast even in those more neutral areas. I really like the comp, I like the BG, overall it may be a bit yellowish but a very cool shot of one of my favorite subjects!

#4 The point of focus seems on the antenna of the bug and the center middle of the cone, there is a little too much in front of that area OOF IMO. Just needed a little more DOF or perhaps point of focus on front of the cone?

#5 You risk taker you! Very pleasing, creates a nice comfy feeling. I like the warm tones/oranges of the sun/water and the slight magenta/pink cast to the seed heads. Point of focus you chose worked well here Birdie

Nits and crits and compliments as I see them
Take care
Karl
