That last photo with the chopping board and the hand
You need to out some up on here, very impressive
Didn't ask what you shoot with btw ?

Here's a more open car shot!

I shoot with mainly a 50D and
90mm Tamron
Canon 17-85mm
Canon 50mm
Canon 70-200mm f4
adapted 135mm Cosina 2.8 and Juptier 8 50mm

Also Samsung NX1000 and WB250 as pocket cameras (and adapter for Canon lens for the NX) - I used to write off Samsungs, but selling them over past few years opened my eyes to these latest generations.

(I do have a collection of cameras too, from the twenties, most work too)

by the way, i welcome critique on mine too. I will gather some to put up when opportunity allows.

(I was once asked, ''what is your best image?'' and the answer I was given, is now something I apply to my photography, ''I haven't taken it yet'' )

These were my first proper attempt to pan with my new 70-200mm lens.

Just for a Laugh, here goes.

These were taken when I'd just got the Camera, The Mountain in the distance is about 20 miles away from the garden, as the crow flies, zoom was entirely lens.

Looks like those nutters were driving in a public car park
What sort of speed was your shutter?
Looks like you had it nailed down nice and slow
Some of the backgrounds are slightly distracting but not sure you could do much about that given where the photos were taken.
Really like the first one with the Caterham Super 7 or is it a Westfield the best.
Your focus appears to have been on the bonnet just below the windscreen of the car, I would have probably tried to nail it to the front of the car maybe.
If those were your first attempts at panning they are very good.
It is not the easiest of things to do.

Love Labradors, when you shoot animals or people for that matter it is a really good idea to get down to the same eye level as the subject your shooting. He/She looks like a willing partner for a photo shoot



Now your daffodil shot is at the height that would have been great for the Labrador shot!
With this, I would say the colours are too muted, it could do with a bit of pop !
I would have selected a small F number which would have helped isolate the flower in the scene and maybe used a very small amount of fill in flash to lift it a bit. Also spraying the flower with a water mister will give tiny water droplets on the plant that will make it even more interesting














With your landscape shots I can see you already have an eye for composition and you are using the rule of thirds well and not just plopping the horizon in the middle.
For me the mountain photos work best without the foreground tree in them.
It can be good to have foreground interest especially if it leads you into the scene but that tree doesn't do it for me.
The photo of the mountain in isolation is my favourite and I really like the desaturated colours, makes it look moody.
Hope these ideas help for you and remember they are only that, ideas.
Keep shooting and probably best to submit one photo at a time as it's easier to critique that way
