    Hi Abie;

    I have to agree, the image could be a bit sharper, and I'd suggest maybe placing the horizon a bit lower in the frame to add more impact to the shot. The other thing to be careful of is the PP (post production) work you have done to darken the top part of the image. This is considered excessive PP and could result in the image being removed by the moderators.

    All the best,
    - Dan

    I'm sorry, but if I'm being honest I have to disagree with all the other people who've critiqued this shot. The sky doesn't look natural, almost as though it's been copy and pasted into the shot. The overall shot is quite grainy and suffers from pixelation and there's a real lack of overall sharpness. Maybe from the process you went through to resize the image? I'd like to see the original and see if I can help...

    I'm not trying to be mean, but I don't honestly see the point in giving false praise where it does not belong.

    Sincerely,
    - Dan

    Nice photo of my favorite city! I like your composition with the line of rocks leading the eye into the shot and towards the seawall.

    The only thing... your title of the posting and the title on the image are both wrongly spelt. It's 'Vancouver'.

    Clark! Whats up man? I haven't been on Trekearth in forever and you've been posting some amazing photos. I really love this one. So original! Love the colors. The composition is what I love the most though. Perfect with the PP. Well done my friend.

    Hi Matthew;

    I see what you were going for here, but I think you would have been better off using a graduated ND filter to darken up the sky giving you balance to the darker ground. The overall PP work with the HDR has given the image an unrealistic look with an unnatural halo around the barn.

    When it comes to PP work, the one rule of thumb I always try to live by is that it should not be noticeable.

    All the best,
    - Dan

    Hi Axel;

    I love whale watching when back home in BC. Looks like you were quite close. I might have tried to focus on the whale vs. the boat but easier said then done when bouncing around on the waves. The other thing which is fixable in post production is the horizon correction. For shots such as this with a very obvious horizon, it's really vital to ensure they're nice and level.

    Cheers,
    - Dan

    At first glance I thought nice sunset, then I realized that sunset would have not been this direction- ah yes... sunrise! Hahaha

    Really like this shot, great colors. I believe what you said about not having altered the colors or touched the saturation, but inadvertantly sometimes adjusting the contrast and blacks will sometimes have an effect on it. Just something I normally watch out for... ;-)

    Must have been a bit chilly that time of the morning?

    Hi Craig;

    Yes, I'm a sucker for architectural shots too. Again it looks as though you fixed the keystoning here as well (which i appreciate). The only thing I find distracting are those darn powerlines which I might have been tempted to try cloning out. Just be careful with the saturation as the blues here are starting to look a bit overly 'neon'.

    Cheers,

    Nice shot Craig;

    The first thing that comes to my attention is the lack of keystoning. Did you sort that in Photoshop?

    Excellent exposure as you managed some good detail in the shadows as well.

    Nice work!

    Really good shot Eric!

    Very simple but effective composition. The shack is perfectly placed in the frame for most impact. The dotted lines compliment the shot too. I might have been tempted to switch this one to B&W?

    Another great shot Gerald;

    I like the composition here, and how the mountain managed to be well reflected but only part of the sky as the reflection is replaced with the pebbled shore of the mighty Fraser which leads the eye nicely into the shot.

    Rich yet natural colors. I think the polariser really helped here didn't it?

    Hi Gerald, long time no speak!

    Appologies for not stopping by more often. Really tied up with alot of things and sadly don't have the time to critique I used to.

    I really like these winter scenes in conjunction with the weathered old barn. Sharp detail and a nice compo (I like the balance the tree on the left brings to the shot). Considering the lack of color in the scene, I might have been tempted to convert the whole scene to B&W?

    Cheers Gerald,

    Great shot Alford! The composition is superb, the colors are rich yet natural. Good choice in exposure as the water doesn't seem to be overexposed, and your choice of wide angle lens really worked well for this shot.

    Nice work,

    Also added to the theme Paul! An equally stunning shot, But I think I might have been tempted to crop maybe a fingers width from the bottom on this oneto make for a bit more panoramic feel complimenting the board walk. Not sure how I missed this one when first posted- but I really like it.

    Without a doubt Paul, you still have a lot of friends here on TE! I'm lucky if I can get more then 3 people to comment on any of my shots (jealous)!

    Amazing to see the contrast of a seaplane just off the ninth hole! Lovely reflections off the water. Sharp detail and rich colors.

    Nice Work mate,

    P.S.- I've added the shot to my Seaplanes (Canada) theme.
