Been practicing around tracks near SE Portland across the river from downtown recently. Found this old chest by the tracks ... liked it enough to drag home with me.

Nice leading lines. But they drag my eye to the white sky in the BG, I would tone that down. I also would remove the white box above her hip, and clone out the shoe reflection in the railroad and tone down the RR highlights. Gotta love that even PNW lighting :D


Lesser Yellowlegs I shot a few days ago. Not sure whether or not to remove the grass behind the bird's tail. Thoughts?

Great view, guessing multi-image panoramic? For a highly realistic processing, which is never a bad choice, it's really nice. Maybe a bit of hightlight recovery in the clouds to the left, but other than that I wouldn't touch it. 9/10

This is one more where I suspect a much larger photo would leave me rating higher yet. But for what I see ... 7.5 / 10 ... Really like the simplicity and look of the image. Feel like the middle needs more detail in the blacks or shadows. Not a lot, but just for some extra definition.

Appreciated the feedback ... and since there wasn't a rating, figured I run it by here one more time with a couple of the suggested changes. Didn't get around the RR highlights yet though.

Really like her pose and positioning between the rails. Nice call on the rustic trunk as well. Her face is a little dark to my eye, but that's a minor complaint. 9/10.

This a bust of the couple who discovered the first North American Viking settlement in 1960. Taken at the site of the archeological dig in Newfoundland, Canada.

I like the perspective, but I feel this is a situation where you should have either centered the subject or put it more to the right (instead of the left).

As it is right now, there is dead space on the lower right and it's distracting because there's something kinda there... a rock. Rule of thirds isn't always better than centering! Hopefully the person who rates my picture below agrees with me.

I am not too fond of the vignetting, but I don't hate it. It's just another distracting element I think.

6.5/10

Since you re-asked I'll throw my thoughts in as well

Lovely model, under-exposed, focus does not seem where it should be, and the rail from the train track leads me away from her and that is a shame :(

IMO 6/10

I'm not sure what your trying to show here, is the cat surprised by something? Fur is overexposed and I don't see a focus point, in fact sorry nothing seems in focus (maybe bad compression on the upload?)

the cat's eyes are in sharp focus, fyi :) The overexposed fur on the cat is strong backlight from the sun. Not sure what else I could do, but sorry I didn't make my focus point more clear....... As far as composition goes... the cat's body kinda separates the trees from the sky from the fence. At least that's what I see.

Not very interesting to me. Background is messy and looks a bit soft, but lighting on the face looks good.

hyogen I wanted to just say I quiet liked the picture, although I can see why there is not a a focus in the picture and the fur is blown out, but its still a very nice composition. I would give it an 8/10.

For animals, i believe underexposed background with them brighter in general might work better though !!!

Very nice overall but too much going on in the picture, I was lost lol.
Just if u left the left side of the picture and photoshop the tall building right behind the bridge out (might be better IMO)

6/10 unique subject! Not sure if the room is available to change the angle (moving to the right) a bit to get more distance of the background leaves. They are large and distracting, the extra distance would help bokeh them to a creamy green less-distracting background.

This is Dexter warming in the afternoon sun.

7/10...great light and it looks like the cat is intentionally sunbathing, which she very well may be doing. I'd probably doing a vertical crop to remove the right side doorway/window and the cat's paw as they are taking attention away from the sun-lit face. Great capture!
