    Critique My Photography?? Please...

    Hiya!

    I'm a hobbyist photographer. I haven't ever taken a class but it has always interested me. Not to toot my own horn, but some say I have a natural eye. About a year ago I set up an account to display some of the better ones. If you click on "Featured" they all should be in there.

    Would anyone mind critiquing some of them? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    My Gallery

    Thanks a ton!

    Thanks Tiny!! That's embarrassing! Lol, I guess that's what happens when I try to make it fancy. Of course I can't figure out how to edit it. The option won't come up on the bottom of the post.

    The link is::

    Good stuff! I like Cora. Well done. Some good use of DOF in some of the others. What setup are you using? Canon or Nikon? What lenses? I have been in the field for 30 years, but never did it as my only profession. I did a TON of weddings, but it was not for the love of the work, the $$$ was good. I do a lot of landscape and nature stuff now. Not to hijack, but here are some of mine.

    Those are beautiful photos and only for that reason am I going to be hyper-critical: I thing they're so good, they are worth improving.

    Landscapes & scenes: no matter how gorgeous is is, it will be a lot more interesting if there is a point of interest, a unique feature, one that draws the viewers eye.

    Close-ups. Make sure you are absolutely sure that before you take the picture you have decided what is to be the focus point, and then make certain that the camera focuses on that bit. The picture of the hand on the horn (pommel? Weston saddle thingy) is a case in point.

    Horses. Unless it is your intention to take a grumpy horse picture, seek to always get those ears forward. Do whatever you have to, dance up and down, have a friend throw gravel in the air. A well composed horse picture needs ears in the right place.

    They are extremely good photos, keep enjoying.

    Thank you!! =D

    Totally agree with you, I did crop it but I think I loaded the wrong.western saddle pic! I was bummed when it came out crooked.

    Landscapes are pretty new to me, I will definitely keep the content in mind.

    Thanks again!
