    If possible, it would be nice if you would number your images when posting more than one or two of them. This makes it much easier for a reviewer to refer to them than having to scroll back and forth just to verify that they have the correct image for their comments.

    The first one is quite nice from a compositional perspective, with the pathway guiding the viewer's eye through the image. The second one is just a big "blur" of colour as there is no focal point in the image to focus/carry the viewer's eye in the picture. The third one I like very much, except for the out of focus (OOF) "blob" of red leaves in the centre of the image. It would be much better if these were in focus and the OOF leaves were in the background. For the fourth one, again most of the subject on the right side of the image is OOF and this detracts from the image in my opinion.

    It is difficult to comment any further without knowing the technical aspects of each image.

    Thank you, like I said, I'm not sure my photos did the colors justice.

    I've taken care of the numbering, sorry, usually I remember to do that. By technical aspects, do you mean camera settings?

    Yes - camera settings, it is always nice to know the shutter speed, ISO and aperture, and any exposure compensation that were used, or, if it is an HDR image, then how many exposures were used. It is also nice to know if a flash was used for fill or some other reason.

    I believe strongly that posting this information can help budding photographers understand how the image was captured and can also help a reviewer provide comments of value, or at least comments for consideration, if the reviewer feels that there may be some alternative settings that may have achieved better results.

    I also believe that it is of value to learners on this forum for posters to tell what software was used, e.g., Photoshop, Lightroom, and any additional plugins that were also utilized, plus the versions. After all, one of the main rationales behind forums such as this is for photographers to exchange ideas and thoughts on image capture and processing allowing the less experienced to learn from the more experienced and, sometimes, vice versa.

    I think they are bursting with it. Love #3, love the framing and balance.

    Is there a way to get the information to come with the photo when I attach it, or do you just copy and paste it?
