  1. Hi Mairead, I love your way of photographing and interpretation of the subjects, especially ports to the attention details in the face of what most people would pass unnoticed.
    Sorry for my language, protest with google translate 🙂
    Ciao, Graziano.

  2. Your well on your way to a great adventure with the ability to capture the moments that will pass before your eyes very quickly. I’d like to suggest that in addition to the technical aspects your learning that you consider delving into the Zen of the objects you choose to shoot. This way you will be more of the director of the shoot then spontaneous shutter bug. Which has it’s place in photographer’s repertoire too.

  3. Hi, love the collection of images, you crrainly have an eye for detail, I have been a pro photographer for a long time and seen lots of ‘High school’ images and been asked to judge on a lot of them and there are very few that have come close to yours. a couple of suggestions the image of the sky and sea has two birds in, they are to far away to be anything in the shot at first I thought it was spot on your lens or sensor, just use a heal tool or clone tool, anything that distracts the eye from the main image remove and try as in a painting bring the eye into the image the lead the viewer across. Also could you put your images in groups as it gets boring constantly scrolling down. Use your front page as the introduction use a slide show, you will find one in the plugins. Thanks for a delightful 30 minutes. 😀

  4. Is it possible for you to share your camera and lens specks with me? I am saving for a nice camera and really admire your work. I am in awe…

  5. Something special here. Perception, composition, the special familiar, love all of it. Very minor thing: I am bugged by horizons not level, unless intended. Have you thought about that? All the best! What a great start!
