I took these while relaxing on a park bench. What do you think?

Wanted to capture the beauty of these majestic trees.

The problem here is that this is not a picture of trees. This is a picture of a clearing in a woods with a stump in it. If you want to emphasize the trees then make the trees the focus of the composition.
Consider getting a polarizing filter as well, as it will make the foliage look much more lush and verdant.
On the plus side, I like the depth of field you got here, which works well for the image.

Request for review. Composition, lighting, color, and thanks in advance.

Very Good picture, I like the lighting of her hair. I also appreciate how the arch and her head are aligned. There is a little shadow around her eyes that you may have wanted to fill but that's being nit picky. 
Good pic!

I took this with my 24mm pancake. That little lens really works for me.
Feedback regarding composition and post processing would be highly appreciated.

Decided to walk along the Hudson River in NYC to watch the sunrise this past winter. Stopped at the 79th street boat basin and thought it was cool that the lights were still strung up.

I agree. The composition is great and the focus is placed spot on. I love the warm colors.
I think I would have cropped it a bit more in the left hand side, and a bit at the top/bottom, to leave out the post and the wire all the way out at the left border.

I got the best of the sky. Color was fading higher up.

Looking north.
I am particularly interested in comments on the horizon's placement. I frequently pay attention to what I want in sky and foreground and that often results in my giving them equal weight and the horizon finding its way to near center line. Does this bother anyone or am I obsessing about "rules" too much?

Not that I am bothered too much about how the horizon is set but since you asked i would like to see a bit more of the sky because there is some good texture and looks more interesting.

This is another image from a nearby location. I was not entirely sure if I should go b&w or color

Thanks guys. +Dave Boettcher it was shot in a little fishing town in Kırklareli, Turkey. The town is called Kıyıköy. You can find the location on photo details. When you click the image it appears on the bottom right hand corner.

Good Photo! I like the composition and the use of the water as a leading line into the horizon. The focus on the water is my only concern. It's not razor shop or creamy (long exposure). I also wish it had one thing to focus my attention on. It's a great landscape shot.

About this community

This joint is about the end product, the image, how you present it, and how others react to it. That's it. There are enough place online to talk endlessly about gear. And there are enough places to seek approval and +1s and Likes and stuff. While great for the ego, they do little to make us better photographers. Please submit photos. Tell us what you were trying to achieve and we'll do our best to respond. This is supposed to be a community, so please leave at least one comment on a photo for every one that you submit. It'll be an even better place if you leave two for every one! Let's keep the criticism constructive, please. If you have something pointed to say, please think about how to say it. And please don't be dismissive. Personal attacks will not be tolerated. If you talk about gear too much you'll be warned, and then banned. Sorry to be such a hardliner, but I want this place to be about the product, not the process.
 
I 1st want to say thank you for taking the time to look at my image.

I liked the texture of the door and thought the lock would be a good subject against it.

I am still learning a lot about post processing and composition, so please feel free to tell me what you like and do not like and anything I can look into to better my craft.

Thanks +Tom Phillpotts​. I was afraid of just doing an image of just texture, but never hurts to try. That is something I have to remind myself; taking more shots is only going to cost me a little more time, but the rewards could be greater.

I went with the angle as I was trying to avoid the viewer's eye going straight from the top to the bottom of the image. But, I see what you mean that you want to trun your head.

The image was a bit brighter before but was trying for a bit of gloomy mood. Maybe a little vignette and bumping up the exposure a 1/2 stop would be better.

Handheld on the EM5 MKii and Pany 20mm f/1.7.  This scene jumped out on me and fortunately I had a friend to occupy the bench.  Mostly I use a 5D3 for Landscapes but I was on a photo walk with my pal and travelling light.  I'm very please with the result but would like CC on this and will definitely be making more use of primes, I noticed myself being so much more careful with composition.

  Here are two similar photos taken in downtown Boston.
  Which one do you prefer ?  One is more blurred.  Sometimes I like blurred because it signifies movement.  I was interested in the slightly different composition.  Taken with my android.

Here is a photograph I sent through the instagram mill. I apologize for the resulting loss of granular quality - any other errors are, of course, my own.

I like it. It has a nice gothic look to it.
I wonder though, if perhaps it would look even better if it were a tad less saturated (the red / orange areas the blue tint in the light from the windows works well)
Also, I think a square is a hard frame to keep this advanced composition in, maybe a rectangular frame would be better?

After the landscape discussion I decided to try this today.  I was struck by these roses, my wife says they just won't open up, like they are resisting.

Feedback welcome.

Thanks +Chrystia Olena ,  the color palate of the background was one of the main things I spent time on in post processing.  Your comment on the negative space and imbalance is actually good to hear.  This image became an expression of the times in our lives that we continue to physically grow/age , despite the fact we may not want to "grow up".  I hope that makes sense. 

Given that, I'll describe the concepts I tried to incorporate, I'd love to hear how others might have approached it.
Vertical lines:  life, time, growth

1) Compliments: background is a gradient of green over red.  Red at the bottom to create contrast with the stems and green on the top gradient.
2) Rhythm: the position of the flowers to create a sense of rhythm (doe, rae….)  that flows from lower left to upper right.
3) Cognitive Dissonance: the negative space in the upper right leaves the viewer hanging, expecting the “Mi” of the rhythm sequence but it isn’t there.  This, coupled with the flowers refusing to open, is the “resistance to change” despite the inevitability of time passing.

Hello everyone. It's been a while since I had the chance of taking some images. I have a few others which I need to post process but in the mean time I'd like to have your input on this one. I thought there is something going on with this when I took, not sure if my idea resonates as much as I'd like to though. Thanks in advance.

+Dogus Utkucu Sorry to respond you so late, Dogus. No, I can't see any other verion than the original. Where is the other one? I'd love to see it.
