Loved the first one...good lighting, solid composition however I'd probably crop the right side a little. I didn't care for pics 2 and 3 for exactly the same reasons.

Nice Shots, crisp and clear with good colour.

I, also, think a crop in the first picture is in order. A crop with “the rule of thirds” in mind would perk up the photo from “a really good one” to the “great shot” level IMHO.

Photos 2 and 3 would look much better if you could adjust (crop) the orientation of the photographs to provide a more diagonal view if it doesn’t offend your artistic and/or journalistic sensibilities too much. :lol:

Keep up the good works.

Hey guys thanks for the criticism. No offense taken. I do try to crop in camera to get the most of my resolution but with surge (oh yea these were taken in about 20' of water along a wall in the surf zone so there was a little surge lol) I can only try to compose and shoot quikly. Overall I like them but yea getting rid of that out of focus part to the right would be a good Idea. Please any more comments I would love to hear it good or BAD. Thanks again

I like the first picture the best. The out of focus area on the right of the picture doesn't bother me that much, even though it would have been perfect if it had been as sharp as the other side. In my opinion I would crop out the bottom empty space a bit. The back ground bokem is very nice and complements the subjects colors very nicely .
