Very nice work. #1 and 2 are my favorites.

If I may, I do think the eyes look a little unnatural (unless they haven't been altered at all, in which case I've made a fool of myself).

Nice series. That last shot would look worlds better with those wires removed.

Your PP needs greater consistency. Some are noisy, some over processed. Try to find a median and work all the images the same way.

The hard part is getting the shot and you are getting them.

I would play with cloning out the wire in the last image.

IMO, It's deeper than that. It's not just consistency but a combination of deep cropping, not considering man made objects in the backgrounds of nature shots as keepers (without a serious reason), and consistency. I know little about pp and refuse to buy photoshop, especially now that its in the cloud. But, I do know that the days of just taking a picture and letting the lab do the work are over. The digital darkroom is half the process. One has to master that as well as pushing a shutter button.

I know that over time I keep learning and learning. Its all new terms to me. Whoever thought that blown out whites, shooting to the right, and worrying about dynamic range and noise in the shadows would be important? But I try to keep learning from the experts here who know their PP stuff. If I start naming pp experts, I'll forget someone and I don't want to forget someone I learned from.

Dave, your'e half way there. As Ted said, you're getting good shots. Now you need the knowledge on how to process them. Getting a good image is only half the battle. I would try to find the tutorials a few of the experts put up here or buy a book and learn.

And there is no getting around it. Sooner or later the free software isn't going to cut it. There's a reason it's free.

Your getting better and better all the time. To get to the next level, mastering the pp skills is necessary. Just my opinion, said in good faith.

Keep shooting and processing.

Still a nice set Dave - noise and all. It takes a long time to get comfortable with pp, much less master it. I still know very little, but enough to get by - most of the time ~ Ron

Thanks Dave
