This group is for negative feedback on photos or things that could be improved only. People tend to only comment on photos when they have something nice to say, but this group is designed to go against that trend so you as a photographer can find out what is wrong with your technique. So please don't be afraid to contribute a negative comment in this group on someone else's work.

If you would like to get constructive criticism on one of your photos here is what you do.

1. Click the Link that says "Start a Discussion"
2. Upload your photo to the "Post" section on the "Start a Discussion" screen. To do this click on the little photo icon next to the text formatting icons.
3. After your photo is uploaded you might add some text under it if you wish describing what you are concerned about or what you would like to hear opinions about.
4. Please do not use the attach section because then users will have to click on a link to your photo to see it. By using the "Post" section, users can study your photo more effectively.

Hi Brenda

Excellent image !!!  I have only two things to say and both are personal choice. You can try it next time or just live it how it is. First I will try to set squirrel more to the left with more tree trunk visible that we can see where he like to jump. Second will be more shallow DOF. Background will be more blurred and he will stand out more. How I say this version is good for me too. 

Comment by Brenda Griffin on March 25, 2015 at 12:15pm

Any thoughts on this picture?

Comment by VJEKO on December 19, 2014 at 8:55am

Yes you can. This is excellent program. It have Camera RAW integrated and new version have very nice improved brushes too. You can use it for downloading your images from camera card and program have nice way for sorting images for quick find. You can edit images and your original will stay untouched with possibility to save image with different size and format and print if you wish. 

Difference between photoshop and lightrom is only that photoshop have layers and some other tools. Lightroom can use many presets which you will get with program. A lot of free presets you can find on net and some professional you can buy. Presets are saved tools settings and you can quickly see how can look your image and then if you like to change some what you not like just play with sliders. Program will make backup of all your images too and not need a lot of space. If you will need some presets I can give you.

Mr Kipling Halloween cakes.  Can you get these in the USA please?

Comment by Aura Topp on December 19, 2014 at 7:40am

I have been happy with fast stone for a while.  I am saving up for a laptop then I will put Lightroom on it and do edits before I transfer to my PC.  Can you edit photo's in Lightroom? :)

Fast stone you can change the contrast, sharpen, etc.

Comment by VJEKO on December 17, 2014 at 2:16pm

Hi Aura

FastStone Image Viewer is just very fast image viewer and is not good for editing. Colors not looks good and for RAW files is even worst. That program have only basic tools. Maybe is this enough for you but on net is many free photo editors.
 Look that link and download what you wish after reading some short explanations what each program can do.

Yes. I never heard of fast stone.
Comment by S. Lloyd Winn on December 17, 2014 at 8:07am

Tell us about this "fast stone" program Aura.  That's one I've not heard of...

Comment by Aura Topp on December 17, 2014 at 7:18am

Photoshop (which I don't have) is too complicated for me.  I use a programme called fast stone.
