Thank you for your critique. Very much appreciated. As for the hands, I have listened to two completely different philosophies from two photographic instructors. One states that the hands are an intricate part of the body so all attempts should be made to show them while the other states, like you, that because it is so difficult to pose, that the easiest and perhaps best way is to simply not have them shown. I am, as such, still not decided which way to go.

As for the square format, yes I agree that squares make overall great portraits (for me anyway). I also like to use landscape and put my subject on one side or the other but seldom in dead centre.

Almax:
I very much appreciated your critique. I was trying for a subdued look. While strong, I wanted to show that she is not the sole source but a part of the scene (blending in to the dark background) yet leaving no doubt that she is in charge. IMHO having her look at the camera would have made her too strong and independent. Make sense? Additional comments welcomed.

Thank you for taking the time to offer up a constructive critique. It is much appreciated.

For me the foreground was important in order to show that the desert is not just sand but includes a lot of scrub grass mingled with the sand and never gave it a second thought. Your comments have made me think however in a different crop for the picture and I will experiment with different views.

Thanks again for your critique

Thank you for your kind comments. I sometimes use borders from scratch but in this case it was Photoframe 4 plug in from OnOne Software

Thank you for your kind comments. Indeed, I was with a Navajo guide and yes I was set up waiting. Not only waiting but taking different shots every 30 secs or so using different apertures etc. Sometimes I will shoot 40-50 shots (even with film) in order to get one good one. But such is the nature of the beast.

Thanks for the comments. Yes I have made the move. Ottawa for now is home base. I am looking at Nanaimo, BC and have asked a Real Estate agent to look around for us for a potential fall move.
Cheers

An excellent image of an area that I have visited many times. I know how hard it is to get it just right. And you did on this one.

Thank you. Yes I reposted as when I saw the comments , I went back and looked what was the problem and indeed, my levels were a bit too low. So as u can see, I do pay attention to comments received in order to become better at my passion.

Thank you for your comments. The Hasselblad 503CW is a medium format (6x6cm) and for me is the best of the film and digital.

No need to apologize. Yes I do use the zone system for my lanscapes/nature shots and use the Gossen Starlite meter. It is great for zone mapping.

Thank you for your kind remarks. I am using a Nikon Super Coolsan 8000ED film scanner to scan my medium format negatives/slides taken by my Hassy 501CM medium format. I am and remain so extremely happy with it eventhough there is now a 9000 model out.

THank you for your comments. I now mostly use 100UC for landscapes or Velvia 100. For portraits, I use the Portra series.

Thank you for your kind comments. WRT metering procedures, I use the Ansel Adams ZOne system (yes it works for color as well) Depending whether I am shooting slide or film, my first light meter take is the brightest (slide) or darkest point (film) in my picture. Then for slides I will push the readind to a level 7 or 7.5 and film for a level 2.5 or 3 (on a scale of 10) Then I will take a series of light meter shots at the high end of the picture with one take the darkest (for slides or take a series at the darker end of the image with one at the lightest point for film. After that my meter tells me what EV to set for a level 5 shot. Takes about five to 10 minutes to take but it is worth it.
