Greetings from the Critique Club

Welcome to DPC. YOu are starting off with a bang. Trust me, 6+ on your first entry is not a normal thing to have happen.

But that score happened for a reason. You have an excellent action image that is well composed and nicely processed.

Like some of your commenters, I also fooled around with framing this image differently because I wonder if this is what kept you from the front page. Maybe a tighter crop to the left, maybe a little more air at the top, who's to know. What you have is plenty good enough and I'm pleased to have had the chance to look at it again.

Keep 'em coming. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

The contrast may be a little overdone, the clouds on the right look unnaturally blocky. That said, I love the silhouette and the pose you captured. I also like this cropped a little closer, placing your subject closer to the left side of the frame and taking some off the bottom.

Great shot, good use of the light. Alignment bugs me a little with the verticals and horizon though, a small niggle though in a dynamic and interesting shot

excewllent shot- having some frontal light to capture the expression would have made this a 9 or ten for me

Lovely capture - Like the high contrast - If anything the sloping horizon needs attention and I would crop it just above the bin as thats very distracting.

I like this shot. the silhouette works well, and the lighting in the foreground is essential.

I like this shot. It is unusual amidst the other full colour pics and I like the action that has been captured.
