My favorite would be #3.

With that, I think that both 1 and 3 need a little bit of highlight control. Most of the steps in #3 are completely blown out, and the center of the building in #1 is also blown out.

I'm assuming that #2 was a long exposure shot. Your depth of field is quite large. I just think that maybe a bit more sharpening to bring out the details. But it's looking nice. May I ask what time that was taken? That spot looks to be perfect for night time long exposures. Like when the sun is setting/set.

The first macro shot is pretty nice. You've controlled the light very well, and everything in the image works.

The second still life shot is very eye-catching as well. I love the curl and color saturation in that one. The black background also works really well on that.

The fire pit/grill-looking, last image, is pretty nice too. Although, it's a bit different than the rest, it's a bit more vibrant abstract

Thanks for the comments and critique, it's always appreciated. I know what you're saying about 1 and 3 being blown out, but when I take down the highlights it doesn't have the right look in my opinion. It would be nice if I could dim the highlights in specific areas and not the whole photo, but LR doesn't allow me to do that. Probably need PS for that, but I've yet to get into that. #2 was shot around 6 a.m. I think next time I'll try it around sunset and see how that comes out. Glad you appreciate the macro shots, those are always my fav to shoot. Thanks again for the suggestions as I'm always looking to improve.

Aloha!
J.

Yup, lightroom is good for RAW develoment, but be sure to start learning Photoshop aswell, so much more control and an epic amount of further adjustments available.

My favorites are 2 and 3 from the 100mm macro. I really like the use of both light and color in these shots. Very nice work overall though.

Nice to see you back! Was wondering what happened to you.

Great shots...I think 1 & 3 are a little over exposed though...

I really like #2. It leads the eye through the photo down to those distant lights, which I presume is a city?



I agree with AConfire... the 3rd seems a bit overexposed. Well, the stairs are at least. HDR could have done justice.
