Round 8 Photo Critiques...

well i thought i would do this as i have a few minutes of fun time! All my personal opinions and not those of the site, and please dont take offence!

Steve - I really like this one, i think a combination of the feet all going the same way, or the simplicity of it all, or the rain, i just dont know, the lines lead you in and the feet take you through, but its a cracking shot, my No1

Pete - Liked this one too, i had already seen it though, so the impact of it was taken away, which was a shame as it is a good shot!

Stepheno -
My third fav, so at least i got the voting right! Nice and simple, leads you in to the shot and the foot prints make it more interesting, very well spotted i think

GaryBagshaw - Think this would have worked better if it were taken on a longer shutter speed, the theme relevance is there, but its a little dark

CT - liked this one, lights needed to be in twinkle mode and for me perhaps might have worked if the road on the left wasnt there!

Bachs - another nice idea, but i prefer the lights to have twinkly look about them, would have made a stronger image for me

IanC - A nice sunset, but the road and car seem incidental, could have done better Ian, and you know you can!

DaveyUK - I like the look of this, would love to see a larger size version of it!

Ghandi - Really nice shot, well composed, but i dont get the association with puplic highway! Sorry!

Gemok - Different interpretation of the theme and one that works quite well for me, thought it would have done a bit better tbh!

RobertP - Longer shutter speed to get the trails would have made a better shot here, might have tried from above the center reservation too. Nice idea though, just needs polishing

Kenco1964 - Like this, maybe a lower angle, camera angle would have worked better though?

Matty - *glosses over inadequacies*

Jump - Different spin on the theme, needed a bit of tidying up to sharpen it up, but otherwise ok

Thanks Matty - for taking the trouble .

I often drive that bit of road and the white predestrian crossing lights always strike me as a huge contrast- a sort of vivid white splash against the overall orange lighting which I was trying to capture. I nearly submitted a B&W version in the end, but I didn't find it an easy round at all.

There was another street light 10ft from the bridge in the middle

btw.... the competition link on the 'home' page goes to the page still saying public highway. Thought I'd remind myself what the current one is...I remember now - things around the home

I thought about this when I posted my entry...

Strictly speaking the beach IS a public highway, as it's an area where the public are free to perambulate. I did consider the fact that people might not get the PH angle of it. Should've entered one of my pier shots

Thanks fo rtaking the time to post some critique though.

I've got some in the pipeline, honest. Well, I thought about it, really I did.

Look, the dog ate it!!!!!! OK?

Cheers for taking the time out to critique, I was thinking that there would be loads of entries with long shutter speeds and blurred car lights so opted for not going down this route, DOH!

Yep, thanks Matt.

Mine was taken on a Powershot A95 which doesn't have a twinkle mode
