Hi everyone, I have just joined your community today, I hope to learn as much as I can from the site and its members as well as contributing myself. I have posted 5 example photos, please take a look and tell me what you think, Bad as well as good please. Photos' are straight from the camera; I'm trying to come to terms with Photoshop

Welcome to Pixalo Jam

I think we all struggle with Photoshop, even if we have been using it for some time!

Nice selection of shots in your gallery. The calm before the storm looks a bit soft, and could do with a straighten anti-clockwise a bit. Also a lower viewpoint might have been better.

The London scene, by accident or design has the background washed out. This is not in itself a problem as it accentuates the foreground interest, but the white walkway to the pier is a bit of a distraction, although I know that it is difficult to find a section of the river in this area that does not have any similar structures.

Funchal could do with the lamp not being so central, and there is a bit of haze/blue cast that might have been improved by using a UV filter.

Hatton Locks is a bit over-exposed with the white blowing out, and the trees could do with a bit more contrast. It would be nice to see all of the lock gate arms too.

The French scene is a nice detail, but it looks as if the street sloping away to the right might have a repeating series of hanging baskets that would make an interesting shot going down the hill. Of course, I was not there, so it might be that there was a lorry just out of shot that would not allow that option .

A little post processing would improve these shots, and you do say they are straight out of the camera. All in all a nice collection to start your Pixalo membership with

Keep an eye out for feedback in the gallery too.

Hi Jam, it's good to have you at Pixalo!



p.s. You'll get good feedback by posting your images up in the Photo Sharing and Photo Critique (1 shot per day in Critique) sections of the forums... please have a quick read of the rules at the top of each section before posting.
