    Thank you Bryn. I submitted two images and the judging will begin after the 13th of July. I have my fingers crossed!!

    WOW! What a great gift for someone retiring!
    You may want to check out some of the on-line classes for photography. I recently enrolled in one that offers 18 mods and you have to complete and pass each mod before moving on the next. You submit your images to them and they will give you suggestions to improve your photography. All I need now is more time to work thru them. Got thru mod 2 the other day....

    BTW...that photo was taken with my IPhone when walking Zeus one morning in the rain.

    A course like that would have to come after my attempt to learn Greek :-)

    I am not really anyone to critic someone else's images but I can give my input, so I guess I am giving some constructive criticisms. LOL!

    In the first picture what are you trying to convey? You did a great job of showing the surroundings. but the boulders in the foreground steal away from the elegance of the home. What are you trying to focus on here? What are you trying to share with the viewer? If it is all of the surroundings, then you took a great photo.

    The second picture of the deer....I would crop to get rid of the forefront. it would make the deer's image much more powerful.

    OK, many thanks for that - it certainly helps me to know what thought processes I should be going through when I have the time to compose a photo'

    In the first picture I was trying to convey the impression of the house held within the solid rock of the land - it just seemed like a good way of framing the shot but I guess the "frame" took over the picture.

    As for the second, I really will have to get more familiar with GIMP :-)

    Once again, many thanks.

    Personally I liked them all.

    I found the rocks, far from being a distraction, added a contrast to the picture - Order vs Nature sort of thing.

    Much the same with the deer. Most sightings are far more distant & I suspect that with any additional cropping you might be getting into resolution problems.

    Not too bad - it's a 24MP camera and was set on fine :-



    ETA OK, I note that the upload manager has then resized the image to a third of the cropped size to get it within the forum limit.

    I like what you were thinking with the house in the rocks. Some creative cropping could accomplish your intent, I think.
