#74 could use a little bit of brightening
# 75 & 77 are a bit too high on contrast, IMO. They lose the detail on dark surfaces, ie. the nice texture of wood.
#76... the composition doesn't...
Sad to hear that :(
Even thou I'm just some anonymous internet person and don't know sam personally I hope all the best for him :)
Hope he gets well soon and it would be his last time in the...
So where are the photos then?
Hehe... birds are cool... and so are these shots! :)
I need moar!
Finnish summer is one of the best things, if not The best thing, in this world :)
Your parents' place looks like a really nice place. Do they have a farm?
Those winter scenes sure look eerie. The second photo reminds me of the old Narnia TV serie.
Very powerful B&W photos. I also would like to know what was the ruckus about? :)
Boost up the brightness (these are more or less underexposed) and you've got yourself a bunch of great photos of flora.
It is a bit harsh, yes. Overall the photo is great but what kills it is the harsh lighting. Low key effect would work better here, IMO.
Do you have something to diffuse the light? Maybe a sheet of...
Do you have the last one in colour?
I would like to see the same theme from some other point. Can you shoot it from the other side or somehow dodge those buildings and shoot so that...
What kind of lighting setup did you use?
I'll come back after your answer :)
I know about the concept and think it's interesting way to capture landscapes. The way one can capture the slightest details with this technique can make the most vast, plain & dull landscape look...
You lucky git ;)
I've been mostly tied to indoors (bloody overcast & short daytime) but here's my humble contribution:
Cool pictures! Your photos really drag the viewer to where it all happens.
#1 truely is magical. I like that out of focus/soft bloom effect on the highest branches and leaves. Burned sky would normally be a no no but in this case it works for the better :) Well spotted and...
You went crazy-good on that one :D What is that thing on the shore? A buoy?
The calm lake (I assume it's a lake) and the opposite shore reflections give a nice tranquil atmosphere for the photo :)...
#1: too dark for my tastes... can't come up with anything practical to say, sorry.
I really like #2. Good composition (though the horse's tail clips the camera frame), almost perfect exposure, and...
Check the latest Photo Challenge, DOF is explained there quite thoroughly.
And don't blame yourself, for a guy with little experience and knowledge you take pretty darn good pictures ;)
Play more with the depth of field. Blur the background with large apertures (small f number) to bring your subject towards the viewer. Also blurring the background will prevent the subject from...
Nice to meet you Jonsey!
Oh, and you too NishieGirl :P Welcome to our humble forum.
What comes for the photos... they're average. I like the sepia tone on the first but that's it. The second...
The first one is too dark but foremost her eyes are completely in shadow - doesn't work in this photo.
The last two are keepers. Great captures, good job!
C'mon Sam, it's your call. It's not ours to decide at this point of the competition ;)
Very moving photos. Thanks for the link, mate.
There's a good tutorial about HDR in Fred Miranda forums (FM Forums -> Landscape) if anyone's still interested.
Or just take this direct link to get there ;P ...
