Greetings from the Critique Club

Very crisp and clean image nice dof here. The tones are beautiful. Lighting is perfect I don't even see a shadow in this.

As I am looking at this I almost expect to see a buzzard flying into it....it just looks so real.

I really don't see anything you could truly do to improve on this. It stands well on its own. Nicely done.

This I can see as one that should be properly framed and hanging in a gallery.

The distant hills are so smooth and sexy. The trees are so crude and rough. This is a very good composition, a playground for the imagination.

This is a stunning shot Lesley, there is so much to enjoy in this picture! Why the Minolta? I hope your canon did not die on you during the trip...

Very interesting choice for delicate, not what someone might think of immediately, but it works, and well. Love the soft mood of the picture, even though it has so much "angularity" (can't think of a better word right now). No pure white, and probably no (or just minimal) pure black, yet it works. I'm curious, what time of day did you make this picture? The sky looks clear. The branch in front looks like a scorpion. Love it.

Stark and intricate, absolute and lonely. Nicely done.

Nice shot - like the sepia tone choice!

Great composition. Very subtle colours. Is this a Leslie Goodman? Similar to this one

Look overshapened to me and I'm not sure I like the B&W here it seems to give the sky and the hills a "color" that just does not feel right - I'd like to see the image in color
10/29/2005 02:26:10 AM
Nice tones and interesting lines.

Excellent scene of a desolate spo, and good framing of the distant tree. I would've liked to have seen this in colour. I'll give you a 10 anyway.

Nice abstract with the dead trees. I wish it had a bit more contrast though.

Very powerful statement with this picture. Nice job. I really like how you pulled the color to emphasis it too.

Nice capture. I like the symmetry. Well done in B & W.

I like this photo--the contrast between the background hills and sharp turns of the trunks/branches--I like the mood.
