    #1) Is a nice shot. It could be a little sharper, and the power lines need to be cloned out.

    #2) Is a cool shot!

    #3) Selective color = yuk, yuk, puke! :puke:

    #4) Cool shot, the power line in the upper right corner needs to be cloned out. I would say that the image needs to be sharper but I think it is a re-sizing issue.

    Good set of pictures overall, I'm glad you got them posted.

    #3 some of your whites are blown out and selective coloring is USUALLY a no no.

    For #2 I found myself wondering what kind of bird it is...although a great capture, I wish it could of been zoomed in more to capture more of the bird's features cause I like the colors!

    Really love number 2, great shot. Number 4 looks a little out of focus. Keep at it.

    Good stuff.....except #3.

    Selective coloring can work, but it's a 1 in 10,000 kind of thing. Maybe 1 in 50,000.:lol:

    #1 has a centered horizon.
    #2 has the bird centered.
    #3 has the waterfall centered.
    #4 has the Space Needle centered.

    Centering can work too, but like selective coloring it's not all that often.

    The reason centering kind of falls short is that it drastically reduces the tension in an image.

    The first place a person usually looks when presented with an image is called the 'eye line'. The eye line is 1/3 of the way down from the top of the image. That's one of the reasons why the rule of thirds can be so effective as a guideline for artistic composition.
