  1. The simplicity of this 'naked tree' with the tri-colored layers of grasses growing is nothing more than an elegant take on Autumn... very beautiful...
  2. The stance, power and ease of this tiger is truely a powerful shot... amazingly beautiful...

    Monochromatic or not

    I agree with you... in monochrome it is seems to start it's own story... the effect that this image has could be reduced if you put it in colour... but on the flip side... anyone who purchases the rights to use this image can convert it to b&w... maybe submit both styles? -- though that can be a little redundent in the portfolio, it can sometimes help potential customers.

    Nature

    I just posted the same thing on another critique gallery... My favorite pieces of advice: 1. Don't "take the shot" -- MAKE the shot. 2. Think is there a commercial value to your picture? Or is it a shot like EVERYBODY else would have? 3. Shutterstock is an education -- I still do my homework; especially on what stock photography buyers are looking for

    Feedback Request

    I have to say that the picture of the dog is likely your best of the four that you have showing here... pet food companies, veterinarians and dog shows could potentially want this shot. Do the others compare? -- they have nice elements, but commercial value? Think 'commercial value' -- is the image one that everybody will have a similar version of?... or is it something that has a story waiting to be told. Keep shooting, stock up your portfolio with GREAT shots and a lot of them... then you will start to see the downloads. And a little final tidbit of advice?... Don't take the shot -- MAKE the shot This is my all time favorite selling photograph...

    Hooray! Celebration thread☺

    My hooray is straight and simple -- After having my favorite shot taken nearly ten years ago I can finally say that I have a new fav as of yesterday It is a simple shot that gives me a multitude of emotion; full of hope, depression and the potential for eternity.
