• Neil, I’m honored you picked my Pikes Peak photo to critique. Thanks for the feedback. I like the changes you made. The light was killer that evening, but I failed to turn off auto iso on my D40 and the camera bumped it to 1600, which produced a lot of noise. I was kind of heartbroken a week later when I got a chance to process and saw how noisy it was. I live 1,000 miles away from Pikes Peak, so it’s not like I can bop on over there and redo the shot. But the look grew on me and I decided it was one of my better efforts. I did what I could to reduce the noise and I worked hard to get more detail in the trees, which were pretty well black out of the camera. I enjoy your blog and thanks again for checking out my photo.

  • Thanks for picking my photo “Go with the flow..” to cirtique. I agree with you on the photo lacking ‘single point of focus’. That’s why although I like the photo but feels like something is not quite right, until you point that out. Thanks again.

  • I think you made very subtle yet effective changes to each photo presented. I don’t know that I would have blown out the sky so much on the first image, but all in all it was all good. :)

  • Thanks Neil, Stoked to have my photo selected. I have to agree about the darkness of the shot. When I was processing it, I liked the moodiness of the dark feel, however i have to remember that I am processing them on a mac, and the PC gamma darkens everything a little bit.

  • Hi Neil, I’ve been away for 2 weeks, so only just noticed that you picked my photo for the week 4 critique! Thanks for picking it! I completely agree with your comments and the sky does look loads better after your tweaks. I submitted the photo hoping to learn a thing or two, and your comments have certainly helped me with that. Thanks!
