OUR PRO’S ver­dict

NPhoto - - The NPhoto Apprentice -

Derek was a plea­sure to work with, and really took ev­ery­thing we talked about on board. His Shot of the Day is nicely bal­anced, with the mill look­ing into the space to the left, the fore­ground fo­liage pro­vid­ing a solid, mid-toned foun­da­tion, and the cloud-soft­ened sun­light bring­ing out the warm colours of the mill’s brick­work and slate. The fore­ground teasels have been nicely ar­ranged, too, with none of them in­ter­sect­ing the mill in the back­ground. My only com­ment is that the sky is a lit­tle too clear for my lik­ing, but there is just enough wispy white cloud to add in­ter­est, and the blue of the sky com­ple­ments the warmer tones of the land­scape rather well. Based on this ev­i­dence, I’m sure Derek’s land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy will go from strength to strength.
