Boitumelo Boweni: The idea of a silouette works to a degree, but the foreground does not really add to the image. A bit too busy to have one`s eye rest.

Boitumelo Boweni: Exposure is spot on and the colours are accurate. To make it better, one could crop the photo so that the squirrel is not in the centre of the image, and also more zoomed in. Focus is not on the squirrel, but deeper in the image in the background.

Liz-Marie Almeida: I like the action of this. Unfortunately the focus on the subject (weaver) is out. When photographing birds, set your shutter speed to at least 1000 to freeze motion of these busy and fast subjects.

Liz-Marie Almeida: A beautiful image of an orange-winged dropwing perching. Great capture! Focus is spot on, exposure is correct, and the colours are accurate.The shallow depth of field places the focus  on the dragonfly, exactly where it is supposed to be.To better the composition, the author could crop the image  so that the dragonfly is larger in the image.

Mariska Malan: Goed raakgesien, en mooi gebruik van lyne in struktuur en spoor om oog in te lei na boom in middelpunt.

Mariska Malan: Very good image of this cathedral. Always be alert to what lighting is used to illuminate the interior and adjust your white balance to avoid dark to yelow images. Maybe also use a person to stand near the limit of the photo, to give depth and size to the cathedral.

Melisha Amir: The intention the photographer had with this photo is uncertain to the viewer. One doesn't know if this is the sun or the moon. I will assume it's the moon, which is over-exposed, and nothing else in this image is in focus. I think this was not a successful attempt.

Wenfoto1 - Nico Janse van Rensburg: Baie goed vasgevang en reg geplaas. Stert wat v hoek diagonale lyn trek.Fokus presies reg, oog skerp. Beweging in vlerke goed vasgevang.

Wenfoto2 - Nico Janse van Rensburg: Very well seen and captured. The sides of the lake converge in the midle of the photo, leading one`s eye to the moutains in the back ground. Also the reflections in the water makes this image stand out. Tip, Use a tripod for these type of shots and set your f-stop to about 13-16 to enable your camera to have most or all of the images in focus.

Suzette Landman: Die kleure in die foto is sag en aangenaam op die oog. Om die foto te verbeter, kan 'n groter diepte-van-veld gebruik word om meer van die blomme in fokus te kry. Dit kan ook verbeter word deru die kontras te verhoog en dit 'n bietjie donkerder te maak.

Suzette Landman: Goeie idee met skuins hoek v bank waarop skoene staan. Dalk speel met diepte v veld en voorwerp wat meer impak het.

Willem Cronje: I like the moodiness of this image. To improve this shot, maybe take half of the sky off and have someone sit on the benches and stare out over the water.

Willem Cronje: Die foto vertel 'n storie, met die kajakke wat reg lê en wag naby die water.  Die beligting, kleure en fokus en is goed gedoen. Die helder kleure van die kajakke trek die aandag en vorm 'n lyn wat die oog inlei na die water in die agtergrond. Komposisiegewys sou ek graag 'n wyer hoek wou hê op die toneel, met 'n bietjie meer van die omgewing ingesluit in die foto.

Yastik Ramprith: Creative moody shot. Focus good. Colour and pattern works well to enhance the atmosphere in this shot.
