All pretty good shots.

I like #3 the most.

The composition is interesting because slightly unusual, but I think it certainly works.

The broad expanse of water gives sufficient colour and texture to provide a nice background to the bits of the photo where a lot more is going on.

I think the fact that different people are selecting different shots as favourites goes towards showing that it's a good set.

Thanks Peripatetic - I hope you enjoyed that I placed these under the landscape forum and not the critiques forum, and if you look at the time posted, it was before your guidlines post

Thanks theBac too - could you be a bit more specific with the colours. I notice on my work monitor #3 has a slight magenta cast, but it looks fine and my home monitor and the print.

Hi John,

it's possible that my monitors are not calibrated, if it shows up fine in print. It's just a slight yellow cast in #4 and a slight magenta cast in #3.

Again, given that they look great in print, it's probably just my monitors and I should refrain from commenting on color casts until I fix them :-)

I do like all the boat pictures, it's just that there's four of them, so I started nitpicking.

Please do nitpick, I didn't post these so that people could tell me what nice photos they were, I posted them expecting suggestions for improvement which I have received and am grateful for.

The fact that you and I have seen a magenta cast on uncalibrated monitors is worrying though as its possible that my home monitor which is calibrated correctly to the printer I use may be incorrectly calibrated for everything else.

I certainly don't see a yellow cast in #4 on my admittedly uncalibrated notrebook.

In #3 there is a slight red/matgenta tinge to parts of the water, but I assumed it was supposed to be that way (seaweed maybe?)

HTH, John.

Hey John - I'm in for the first shot, it is good, in all aspects as Dustin has pointed out

Hey Jake, thanks for the comment. My DVD with RAW files from Malawi short be arriving tommorow. I took your advice on the fish eagles and feeding them and hopefully got some good shots.
