Hi, I'd like some input on a few pictures I've taken recently. All pictures are taken on the west coast of Sweden, most of them on Lyrön to be exact.

Be as harsh or as kind as you want, I can take it and I need it to improve. Please visit my Flickr for other different sets! FLICKR (external link)

Thanks,

not bad shots at all. perhaps having more interest in the foreground, but thats a minor criticism.

I like the first and third, a slower shutter speed would look nice on those too.

The two red 'things' in the first one draw a lot of attention, perhaps too much for the rest of the shot.

I'm not getting much of a sense of leading lines or a definite point of interest in these shots although they a 'pretty' enough to look at. For instance, nice clouds and light in #2, but the small boat/lights on the horizon are just not enough to keep my interest.

So overall, nice enough, good light, but lacking a 'wow' factor which it looks like you could create with the kind of light your shooting in and your PP skills.

Good enough for me to look through your Flickr quickly. I like this shot (interesting foreground), but the foreground it too dark to see anything. i always wonder when I see an image like this if your monitor is set too light.

Some of your other shots seem dark too. The dog shot is nice.

Hope this helps.

I agree with ejenner that they look dark (except for #1).

Thanks for your input! I'm currently rocking a laptop due to studies and have been for quite a while :( The screen has a bad angle of view, basically if it's angled too much one way it gets darker and vice versa. But I'll keep in mind to brighten the future work up a notch! And I'll try to find time for updating the dark ones.

Again, this is the help I needed from you guys. Thanks!

Agreed. The other two dont really draw me in. For the last pic, you could have gotten lower maybe and brought that rock in the lower left into the picture more to have some foreground interest.

#2 doesn't do it for me, but the rest are fantastic. Great job!

I'll go against the grain here and say I like #2 for subject matter, though it is dark. It's a difficult shot to get right in one take, too dark, as presented, and you loose detail in foreground and sky. Too light and you loose drama in the sun's rays. Maybe bracket the exposure and combine? Also clone out the ship.
