looks like focal length and shutter speed were fine together, combined with IS, you should be in good shape with respect to motion blur. At the posted resolution, it looks great. Does it fall apart if it's a little bigger?

Yes when the resolution is expanded its becomes blurry. I see lots of pictures on here where the eyes are tack sharp. When I zoom a little on light room mine are no where close. I am trying to get images like that when I shoot.

I like that you singled out this leaf, and it has interesting color; however the perspective is a bit 2-dimensional.

5/10

The Southernmost Tree in Florida (external link) by ddk632 (external link), on Flickr

Shot in Everglades National Park, at the end of the only road that goes south through the Everglades, down to the very southern tip of land in Florida not counting Key West. The view was worth the ride down.

The body of water in this photo is called Florida Bay, in between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.

Love the sky but I think it would look much more better in color, just a personal opinion. 7/10

Yea, the sky is blown out. Also, I feel this has meaning to you (hence your capture and the name of the photo), but that meaning is not expressed to the viewer. All I'm seeing is a curve on a road with grown up vegetation on each side. Not very appealing to me. 4/10.

6/10? Composition is solid but I find the processing distracting.

I struggle with this sometimes as well. I've found that most of the time, it's lighting. The few times I've gotten that right, it's really worked out well for me from an IQ perspective. If I find myself pushing shadows and pulling highlights in post, the detail suffers, even when shot in RAW.

The other option is not to zoom into your images... as the one above looks great. How does it print?

I haven't tried to print it yet. It is going on a 8x4 card so it should not be an issue at all. I would worry though if it was 16x20.

Nice candid / real shot and good catch of his expression. Only nit is his left fist (right of frame) isn't connected to an arm (whereas the other arm is clearly blocked by another object, so it works), not sure if that's a crop or framing of original but would have been good. Overall 8/10 for capturing the moment, which is more important than all the small details.

Color version of the B&W tree I posted, albeit different shot and composition:

Same tree as above, different composition, and in color:

That's a nice shot, but I think the b/w worked much better. It was more dramatic and the composition worked better with the tree further away from the group of trees in the background, especially given the title 6/10.

I like it. Great composition, lots of detail. Only problem I have is that loads of the people near the foreground seem to have bits of them missing - I'm guessing it's an HDR and they have moved in between the shots you took. Overall I think it's nice though. 7.5/10

Uh, it would be very difficult IMO to say anything negative about that shot. Subject, lighting, everything just great, plus you used the 60mm macro, which I think is the best value out there. 10/10.

The rocks in the foreground are over powering and take away from the main subject which I assume is the boat. 6/10

Nice tonality. The subject seems is too left in my opinion. Slightly more contrast would be nice. 6.5/10
