G'day mate

You have posted for us ... "Thank you for looking and enjoy...critiques (no matter how harsh) are always appreciated! "
so may I offer you some cc

From viewing I received 2 immediate responses -
a) you are showing us/me that you have a super-wide-angle lens, &
b) you have recently been on holidays and are showing us/me some holiday pictures

Now - these are subjective responses & you will know their accuracy > but as I say, it's my visual first impressions

The creative-vertical images are showing me lots of foreground - and I'm left wondering "why am I looking at pebbles etc ... what is the author trying to tell me visually?" and I do not have an answer

I think that a) yes-you do have a creative eye and b) it shows up with "pictures-within-pictures"

Here's what I am seeing as possibilities within 3 selected images ...

one of the vertical images ...


This image could become more eye-catching as a pano image


and here is a boating image - & a picture within a picture image

ps- if I were to play with this image at all, I would also try to reduce the atmospheric-blue of the water haze to try to make the other colours 'glisten' some more

Hope this feedback is okay ...

Regards, Phil

You have a fab series of shots there, great colours and such stunning scenery. I would crop some of them a bit as Ozzie says. Really love the lake shot with the patchwork of fields in the foreground - super shot as you have the sunshine and shadows from the clouds as well. Nice one.

a) correct!
b) wrong assumption...I wasn't on holiday, Geneva is my hometown, and I went to a park (that's on high-ground) during the week-end!

I liked the "feel", or texture, of those pebbles...I was trying to show you guys the beauty of that pond, with the reflections and greenery around it. The message of the photo was supposed to be "nature's beauty"...

I really like how you cropped the images! Clearly, you are a much more experienced photog than I am...

I like your shots. I also agree with the cropping by Ozzie for some of them. Looking at the photos as a group overall, I think you hit your stride in numbers 5 thru 13. To my eye, that series could stand on its own.
