first the post title is completely false
Very nice well done joemc, they all look great
Let me add the comment on the HDR photo (sunrise pier shot) was it taken in Hollywood? I like that shot it's really great (to others it will be too much, but I like the overdone look) the clouds look awesome.

These are all compelling images and I like your compositions. I'm assuming a couple of them are HDR - if so, they're tastefully done.

Hi joemc,

I don't find anything "feeble" about them..lol. Although I like your shot of the knight (other thread) so far, I really like the "shot into the sun pier" a lot too.

Personally - and that's just my taste, nothing else - I feel that as soon as I can see it's HDR, it's too much. However, you do seem to have a fairly gentle hand with it. As an example of what I consider "perfect HDR", you could take a gander here: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/cambridge-gallery.htm

Keep'em coming joe - nicely done methinks!!

Cheers :-)

I knew it, if I would say something about the HDR being too much, nobody would say anything about it... or you guys just like to disagree with me let me know, I'm really confused...

Nice shots joe keep them coming

As previously said, the title is very misleading.
You're newbie to the site but certainly not to photography.

Seriously, how long have you been doing photography?

Since at least 2007, judging by the exif data.

Nice shots and welcome to the forum, Joe.

Shot 1 - could maybe have done with a slightly faster shutter for two reasons, firstly the lights in the mid foreground right are a bit hot and secondly the motion of the water has been smoothed well, but it has introduced a little bit of movement in one of the boats (bottom right) - but I'm nitpicking - a very good shot.

Shot 2 - maybe slightly oversaturated reds in the sky, but a great scene and sky captured well. I'd be screaming for my 10 stop ND filter after nailing that shot, to get a bit more movement into the clouds and smoothe the water.

Shot 3 is my personal pick out of the set though...

Thanks to everyone that took time to comment... It is appreciated.

I did not intend to mislead anyone.... I am a newbie to the site... But I have been playing with the art for about a decade.

HDR... is an aquired taste to other photographers... But it is funny it sells to the public better than a staight up photograph... I guess it is because the untrained eye sees it as something different?

HDR is very cool when converted to B/W... Here are a few examples.

Cheers and thanks again,
Joe

Thanks for the comment Frielspak.

It is appreciated!!

For the members that didn't like certain images I would like to hear why so we all can learn from their feedback.

Cheers, and thanks again, Joe

Not really a fan of the 3rd, it looks a bit too unnatural for me but the rest, and especially the 2nd, are awesome! :shock:
