    Have felt completely out of it these last few months, and still do to an extent with photography. Hopefully will be feeling better this coming year. Saw this last night however and liked the moon with the clouds. Here's what I got;

    It's deviantart's watermark, it's too big [edit - to clarify; not my choice].
    If my picture's not good enough to even get any comment despite the watermark maybe it's not as good as I thought.

    Another reason to love Seattle. They have a museum dedicated to sci-fi. :D

    The picture's fine, but the watermark does really ruin it - both picture and wmark are centred on the same thing, so it's not surprising that you got some negative comments about it. Also, if people didn't know it was auto-applied by DeviantART, they might think you'd applied it because you had an inflated sense of your photo's worth and of the nastiness of the people on the internet - the same people you're asking for comments.

    As it is, you didn't add the watermark and so the conclusions people jumped to aren't valid, but don't be so defensive - hopefully you can see how they came to think what they did. In future, try using Flickr - it doesn't watermark and allows easy embedding in a forum post.

    As for your pic, as I said, it's fine - I think you could easily improve it by shifting/cropping about 1.5cm off the left hand side. It would get rid of that stranded sheep currently on the edge of the shot and centre the main sheep, which I think would strengthen the shot.

    Anyway, here is one of mine from the recent snow - a rose bush in my garden, doing its best to survive!

    A tighter crop may have worked better, but I still love that shot.

    Maybe it's because I never see snow :/

    It's because Paul Allan has too much money and the Experience Music Project didn't work out like he had hoped.

    It's not that it's a bad picture, it's just literally hard to see the pic behind the watermark.

    Is that a three legged sheep? :confused:

    I like that rose one a lot although for me personally that vignetting is a bit much

    Love those portraits Lovah. Although can't decide which one I prefer! I think it might be the first one although I think the depth of field may be ever so slightly too shallow for me. My eye is slightly distracted by the left side of his face being a bit out of focus. Although that is just a tiny criticism for an amazing shot.

    This is actually pretty epic. I though it was a shot down stairs into a dark basement until I read the caption :D

    I found this Eucalyptus grove while scouting locations to shoot the Santa Cruz Mountains at sunset. It sits in Crystal Spring Reservoir, an artificial lake created along the San Andreas fault (one of the major fault lines responsible for California's earthquakes) and is fed by an aqueduct that originates in Yosemite Valley. Eucalyptus was introduced to California by Australian settlers in the 1850s as a source of lumber for construction. It was planted extensively in San Francisco and surrounding areas, and most of the groves still exist today.

    The grove was well-shrouded in the shadow of the mountains by the time I got there, which is why the light is so flat (and why the water looks green!). I plan to come back at sunrise, as I expect the reservoir will be full of mist and the angle will be right for some nice side lighting on the trees. Details:
