    I have a few minutes on the computer (yay!), so I thought I'd try to catch up.

    1/2 - I think you have some awesome directional lighting going on in this first one. I think it needs to be brightened a bit though. I like the crop of the first better.

    3 - Love these colors together! Good focus on the husk! Like this one a lot.

    4/5 - I like the comp on 4 better than 5. I like the hay bales and all the different "layers" to the scene.

    6 - Looks like it may need straightened just slightly. I think it's a very nice shot! I really need to bring my tripod sometime to fireworks. I can't get the look I want since my hands are too shaky

    1 - I think it needs to be brightened slightly and/or add a little bit more contrast. His face is looking a little bit grey to me. I love this face though!

    2 - I think that this one is looking slightly bluish, and 3 is too yellow. I think that both of them somewhere in the middle would be perfect color wise

    3 - I like this one! Makes me want some!

    Tracy,

    I think you did a great job if the conversion in #1.

    I love the composition and idea for #2. There is something not quite right with it, which might just be the colour like Steph said.

    #3 is too yellow but the composition works for me.

    I'm a few hours late with mine. I hope that is ok. Actually caught golden hour. I'm in love!

    50mm, ISO400, SS1/1000, F3.5 - I think focus fell on her forehead


    50mm, ISO400, SS1/800. F3.5 - too yellow?

    Yay for catching golden hour! After my first time, I never wanted to shoot at any other time of day

    #1 - The light looks a little bit harsh on her in this one. It also looks pretty flat on her. Notice the shadow from her chin? I know it might not have been possible, but having her slightly angled from the sun could have helped add a bit of depth.

    #2 - Like this one Looks just a bit tight in the frame, but it's not a dealbreaker for me. Love the light you caught in his eyes! And awesome eye contact!

    Sorry, again, for being MIA for the most part. First it was Jackson, and now it's Carson. I think that after 2 ER visits, we're on the mend, and things can start to go back to normal around here.

    Ugh I know I have missed at least 2-3 Fridays for my own postings here, sorry but I have a bunch of new stuff so I will be back on track now for this week.

    Shadowgrey....
    1. I agree, lighting looks harsh & uneven, and she ended up with pinlight-like light in her eyes. I do like how nice her eye color is brought out though.

    2. I agree with Stephanie. Great light in the eyes, great focus and depth too!

    Shadow- I agree, too harsh of light here. It does almost look like you used your flash with those pinlights in her eyes. #2 is great for color! LOVING the light you caught in his eyes! WELL DONE! I think you got some nice lighting here. It is a bit tight, but I think this is a good shot!

    Shadow, I can't add more to the other CC you've received, but just want to say kudos on the light you achieved in the golden hour on that second one! Nicely done!

    I still don't have much, but I'm sharing a few macro poinsettia pictures, still trying to get the hang of these macro bellows, but as you can see, the results are pretty fun. However, I'm realizing that extreme macro with such a shallow depth of field needs to be done well for it to work. There needs to be enough of a focal point and enough visual interest to hold you, in the midst of all of the softness. So I'll put these out there for some input and help!

    One funny thing I'm learning, BTW: DUST THINGS before you shoot them in extreme macro! I had to clone out some dust on this poinsettia, dust I couldn't even see till I took the shots and downloaded them!

    Light wasn't that great, and you need lots in these situations, so for practice purposes I was forced to use ISO 2000 and was shooting at f/14. Shutter speeds were in the range of 1/30 - 1/40.

    #2. Same idea as #1, but obviously #1 is a monochromatic approach, so this has a different feel.

    Glad you're having fun with the macro! I hope you can get a lens soon so it can be a little easier for you. I'd love to cc, but I've been without Internet since yesterday morning, and I'm on my phone. Stupid Uverse. I guess they're having outages and we're one of the "lucky" ones to be effected by it. If its not one thing keeping me from posting, it's another.
