The bright orange tractor is a wonderful counterpoint for the old building. I think I would have been tempted to "green up" the raw earth so the rusted building is more dominant. Perhaps not.

Ah this is classy a very nice still life. I would not have minded to see the entire light fixture in the frame but that is just me.

Hmmm a photo of a photo? I like Milton's quote:

"Your mind is it's own place and can create a heaven of hell or a hell out of heaven."

The artistry of your eye is evident with the cup of tea in the background to give us a visual journey of delight. Nice composition. The technical elements are well done with good contrast shown, natural colour, sharp in focus. The background could be more level but that is strictly my own opinion and I bow to your artistic prerogative. Sweet upload (get it?)

Well well well, top marks for this shot that gave me a belly laugh. I remember hiking the Annapurna trail in the Himalayas and we passed a photographer who had to hire a sherpa guide to carry his lens...that is what this image reminds me of...you have resurrected a memory for me and it was Tolstoy that said if an emotion has been elicited then art has been created. Your photograph is sharp "as a woman's tongue"...set up in an environment that marries well with the title. Top marks for this photograph.

So this is what affluent litter looks like. I think a different POV would have strengthened the overall presentation of this photo...remember when you change your pov you change the entire photo oftentimes for the better. This pov is ordinary albeit appropriate. Sharp clear focus and good exposure and contrast.

I feel the saturation is overdone in this shot. It is something that I know I am guilty of but when the bard roof come out bright blue I think it is too much. fabulously sharp fence posts and wire insulators.

I really like the diagonal composition. As the image is entitled Hoar Frost I would have preferred a greater depth of field to see more frost clearly.

I like it when an hdr really doesn't look like an hdr but has a special sparkle. This image is sharp in areas with a nice dynamic range of tones. The composition on a diagonal rocks! yay.

Hoar Frost

still26 says:

A pastoral scene of field with rickety fence somewhat unkempt and has a feel of better days. I like how you popped the colours in this high dynamic range image and kept the sharpness on the fence with some softness in through the background.

Storm Swimming
avatar Adam773
Adam773 says:

Great colours and colour contrasts. The image would be improved in my opinion with a crop from just below the shoreline to just above the dark cloud that goes right across the image. This would emphasize the horizontal lines in the image.

Mountain Lake
avatar Adam773
Adam773 says:

Excellent with the sun and the colour on the water. The spiky tuft of grass and its mirror image are really good. I feel, however, that the middle ground between the tuft of grass and the far tree line is lost. I think it would be better all in sharp focus.

Good shot - lovely vivid colours and super reflection on the water. I always feel that these shots are improved with something in the foreground - a boat, a person etc.

Y'know, every time we travel out of Thailand we get American Bills. Countries we travel to, like China, Nepal, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Borneo will not accept old bills, they all have to be clean, with no writing and spanking new....what a pain.

OH DEAR, that ocean is going to end up on my keyboard...you have a significant tilt on your horizon line. The centered sun would have been better had you followed the rule of 3 and the horizon cut line dead center also weakens a very lovely sunset scene.
