As this photographer's son, I wanted to jump in to this discussion and say that my mom is basically a beginner at Photoshop and has no knowledge of NeatImage. These pumpkins were smooth and there was no adjustment performed to change their natural look. I think it's funny that one commenter mentions NeatImage and the rest of the people assume that this software was used, when in fact it was not.

Wonderful subject, and colors. The crop feels a little off-balance to me, but I will come back and see if I feel the same way later in the week (maybe it's me that is off-balance for getting up too early today!)

I really like the tonal range in your photograph. I wonder if it might be more powerful with a tighter crop on the hand and bottle? Nice composition as it is, though.

Greetings from the Critique Club,


Composition:
This is a wonderful composition. The leading lines formed by the compass work very effectively to pull the viewer's eye to the pi symbol on the slide rule. These leading lines seem even more powerful because they are so much different than the horizontal lines on the slide rule that run through the entire photograph. Black and white works very well here also.


Technical:
Excellent depth of field (DOF) -- the pi symbol is in sharp focus, with the numbers on the slide rule being less in focus as you look higher up on the slide rule. This effect places even more emphasis on the pi symbol.


Meet the Challenge Objective?
Yes, meets the challenge objective very very well. Excellent photograph and deserving of the high placement it received in this challenge. Great work kiwiness!

Lanscape became Cityscape

Greetings from the Critique Club,

Your landscape photograph is a very nice composition. I especially like how you've framed the left and right edges with trees -- this works very well, and reinforces your "Landscape became Cityscape" idea.

You've captured the sky color very well, good exposure and focus. A minor point (that will bother some of the DPC voters more than others) is your misspelling in the title (lanscape vs landscape).

Some of the comments below mention that the composition seems a bit crowded. I agree somewhat with this, but also realize that most cities look crowded. It might be interesting to try a wide-angle lens, and moving further away might open up other compositional ideas that work. This is a creative photograph for this challenge -- great idea to capture a landscape photo within the city!

Greetings from the Critique Club;

This landscape photograph provides an element of mystery, due to the fog. I like how the background elements vanish in the distance. This effect seems to pull the viewer in, as they try to see what might be hidden just at that line where you can only make out the shape of objects.

While I like the composition, I think there may be a little too much fog in the upper third of the photograph. One way to add an element of interest to a fog photograph is to have an object, a fence for example, that runs from the foreground into the background. This could provide a viewer a better 'yardstick' so they can judge how thick the fog is. This element could also help to pull the viewer into the photograph, to examine more closely those objects in the background.

A level adjustment might also help with this photograph, as it seems that the entire image is a bit dark.

(I Wanna Be) Your Underwear, Bryan Adams

Greetings from the Critique Club,

Interesting photograph for the Song Title challenge! This photo captures the texture of silk very well, although I find the blue silk in the background tends to draw my attention away from the subject. Lighting and focus are very effective.

I believe the composition could be improved by playing with the location of the underwear within the frame. The bottom fifth of the photograph does not contain the subject -- could the photograph be improved by making better use of this area? One interesting composition might be to move the camera back a few feet, and position the underwear so that it breaks up the background into more definite shapes.
