Re: Erosion_3

The image tag you used was incomplete. It needs to be:
[IMG]WEBADDRESS[/IMG]

So if you edit your post and just add [IMG] to the front it should show up.

The image looks good by the way, well controlled depth of field and interesting colour.

All the best,
Phil

I have done this for you.

Kevin.
The normal way to add an image to the post is to select the 'open' from My Pics in the lower right panel of the message box.

Your images appear in another window with a drop-down menu giving you several options as to how you image is to appear in the post.

Select your image and display method from the drop down and thats all there is to it. I cannot edit your original post so I am unable to do it for you.

Good luck

Re: Erosion_3

Now for my critique.

The subject and background colours are good and compliment each other. The DOF is almost perfect but too narrow as the right hand prong (looking at the image) is just out out of focus at the tip.

Might I suggest that vertical lighting be applied to create shadows to mirror the subject on the background surface. Rotate the fork slightly to bring all the tips into focus. The lighting level is fine, too harsh and it will spoil the image.

Thats my personal opinion and I am sure others may disagree. Best of luck

Thanks for your input Peter.

I will try vertical lighting next time I shoot. It's always good to get genuine critique from members. Iím busy collecting old eating utensils to keep the portfolio going, they fascinate me. Anyway thanks again.

Keep it going. Everyone has a theme that interests them and I like the variety. Good shooting
