A couple of the shots are really good mate but you need a couple more higher quality shots for a higher quality calendar. Now it feels like it's a collection from 5-6 different photographers.

I'd say yes if you can use better photos.

Jan - NO, too bad light and contrast. Very low quality

Feb - NO, too dark and nothing that's interesting enough.

Mar - YES, IF!, you change it into B&W since that'd work much better. It's very low saturated now and converted to B&W and would increase it's levels and give it more contrast.

Apr - YES/NO, fairly ok shot but the composition is too easy and plain, needs more attidude. Maybe another crop can save it?

May - YES, this works, it's a decent shot and interesting enough to be able to stand alone as a photo. If possible, to NOT have the facing heart in the middle would strengthen the composition.

Jun - NO, too ordinary and can't be saved through the flip.

Jul - YES/NO, maybe too dull in light/composition. Maybe with less sky and more foreground this would get better lines?

Aug - YES, a classic sky/water shot that always works, might be better in B&W due to the contrast ratio the shot has.

Sep - YES, rays always works when the compositions are decent. If possible, structure on the sky would be great, still works without.

Oct - NO, not much right here anywhere.

Nov - NO, could've been cool if you'd composed it less flat and lifeless, doesn't cut it alone due to the composition I think.

Dec - YES, best image of the whole calendar, hands down. Nice dynamic range and contrast. Nice tones and composition, it's interesting. Nice job!

Hard critique? Yes but it's a filthy business and I know you can handle it!

Later Tobi, keep it up!

Thanks for your feedback Rob ;) I see your points and understand them. I tried a lot of different photo and ended up with a vertical calender using wide-angle phots. I have a lot more vertical shots than horizontal :/ If you have the time and bandwidth please have a look at the latest version here: [link] (20mb... I have been working with quarkxpress in the past but I just bought InDesign and I don't know yet how to produce good quality non-print pdf with only small size xD)

ah and if you want to see other versions of the horizontal calender, just change the number of the pdf to 2 or 3 ;) they are still online.

This will be printed (eventually) right? About half of your pictures seem kinda dark, even on a backlit screen. If you get this printed, the images will darken further. I think you might lose a lot of detail in some of your photos.

yes its going to be printed. the colors are not really working in this preview pdf. the print pdf is looking better :) I'm aware of the darker-print problem. but thanks for the hint anyway :)

April and May are a bit similar and July doesn't look like Summer and is also too similar to August. You turn the month over and get a picture that is kind of the same one you've been looking at for the past 30 days... August is good though as it is. The rest are pretty cool as they are!

An für sich eine schöne Idee, doch was mich ein bisschen sehr stört ist der krasse Kontrast zwischen dem Deckblatt und dem Januar.. das Deckblatt lässt auf einiges hoffen, schön scharf schöne schwarz weiss Kontraste und wenn man dann auf den Januar klickt.. hat man im ersten moment keine Lust weiter zu schauen ^^ hört sich hart an, aber das Januar Bild stinkt total ab gegen das Deckblatt wobei der Februar mir wieder gut gefällt, auch von der Qulität der Bilder kann der Januar nicht mithalten...

hmmm stimmt, das b/w titelbild lässt vielleicht etwas erwarten was nich kommt. sollte ich ändern. die bilder haben alle die gleiche qualität, da hab ich keine sorge. das ist eine vorschau-pdf. die druck-pdf ist 200mb groß ;) da würde das deutlich werden :)

ok dann ist es wohl wirklich eher die erwartungshaltung vom Deckblatt, denn irgendwie lässt das auf einen stilistischen schwarz weiss Kalender in Hochglanz erhoffen :)
