Here are just a few of the comments from iPhotography students;

 

I love this Phil! Bold and sharp with a good feel of symmetry! Love that you filled the frame with the building

Great symmetry Phil! I also love the grimy textures created by the moss and algae.

I love how this is saturated through the whole image. Great focus, and the way you’ve brought out the texture is striking. Shame about the sandbag bottom right but nothing you can do about that!

The colours and the softness are beautiful in this shot. I love the composition too. Great job!

This is so delicate Laura. Looks like a painting! Fantastic.

Great Freelensing, Laura. I think I was drawn to this in the gallery because of the interesting shape of the grasses. All of your entries are wonderful but I think this is my favorite for that reason. And I do think the netting has added to the effect. Nice work!

I love this! You’ve got the angle just right. You’ve captured a great expression and I really like how the subject is completely in the middle of the frame. it tells the story of a great adventurous day!

Love her russet colour, which matches the background, and also the way she looks as if she’s just come up from the valley after her grand adventure.

Love this, Nicki! She has a very stately look at this angle, almost like a lion, but since she might not like being called a cat, I’ll go with wolf! Great composition and DoF.

this is such a beautiful portrait! You’ve got the lighting just right and the pose and angle is wonderful. really really nice work very well done.

This is just beautiful. I love the angle that you’ve taken it from and I just love how her skirt frames her and the DoF just makes it all so nice and soft. Her eyes are so sharp!

This is an amazing shot and great angle and the eyes and expression are nicely captured. Good work!

Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL shot Lowri. I love the composition, the expression on the man’s face, his outfit and most importantly the light and editing are gorgeous! Well done indeed 🙂

I agree! Such a beautiful portrait of them both! Love the black background and I think the vignette works really well!!

Congratulations on POTD, Fabulous lighting, composition and editing very well deserved winner.

The reflection is just awesome here Carol, the pose is really dynamic, it may sound odd but I dont see many shots of squirrels near water, it tends to be more birds but this is brilliant for a unique moment, cant fault it!.

Well captured, Carol, it’s a fab shot. Great reflections.

Great shot Carol can only echo what has already been said

Love the beautiful colours and lighting.

This works really well Paul. The backlighting makes them glow and brings out those autumn colours really beautifully.

BRILLIANT! I LOVE it. Well done for experimenting with the lighting, it really works, the colours are just amazing 😀

Beautiful composition and the colours are so rich. I can smell them from here!!

Great composition, also I love the colours, the presentation of the spices and the lighting.

Many thanks everyone. Much appreciated. I had fun setting this up and it’s now happily sitting on my kitchen counter (can’t bear to put it away). The house smells lovely!

Audrey, this is fantastic! I love your new backdrop and the colours and composition are just amazing. I can almost smell those spices.

Thanks, everyone! Barbara, the background is vinyl, which would probably be the cheapest of the backgrounds, around $16 (US) from Ink&Elm. I have other ones that are boards (from Replica Surfaces) and they are more expensive ($77).

Strangely in this one, I like the blemish in the wood. It works so well. Fantastic shot. Love the colours and the vibrancy, nicely composed as well.

Love this! Great lighting and composition. Simple and effective. Well done

Agree with Audrey – great lighting and simple but effective composition.”

This is really eye-catching! I agree, the lighting and composition are fab. I also love the texture on the background and the way the vignette draws our eye right in to the middle of the frame.
