they are nice for a beginning, and dont take this the wrong way because i know it hurts to get something other than a "wow" for ur first few feedbacks, but i think these lack something a little. i dont know what tho, so im not much use. i guess they just dont have the 'magic' in them. sounds gay i know, but i think they need something a little more.
also, i think the first 2 need richer colour in them, they look a little like they are 80's photos that have been in a cupboard for 20 years hehe.
finally, i love the third one! thats awesome, especially if your only just starting out.
try playing with your camera's fatures and settings, and just experiment tonnes. take pics of anything and everything with meaning to you, because often, an insite into someone elses life is the best form of art
keep it up
Thank you for the comments andres_pad.
It doesn't matter if my first comments are like the one I got from you
Now I know that the first ones weren't so good.
So here is my next try:
This time I tried to work a little with light and colours
Here are my comments for the first bunch
For the first one. I actually like the filmy feel to the colors gives it kinda a sureslistic look which makes it seem unreal, Just like the way a rose yet to bloom during late fall is.
For the second one it could probabely be improvedon quite a bit by photoshopping the colors and even doing some cropping do make smaller composition adjustments but I like the idea that the important pice of the picture seems small comapred to the wastnes sbut still obviosuly is the centerpiece.
For the thid one. I can only agree with the previous poster it looks really nice. A moderate complexcity in the composition that gives a depth but still with an very obviouse point to rest your eyes on ohh and I really like playing with light.
For the second batch
The sunset pic while nicely looking seems to lack that somethign extra which catches my eye I'm not really sure why though.
I like the dramatic feeling of the corridorr pic it would be interesting to se what could be done if a warmer lightsource was sued than just bright white, Might be a potential photoshop project ?
Lastly but not least the dog is just so darn cute
Thank you for the comments
me likes... try and get more focus on the sunset shot, other than that its cool. also try and get some birds or something if there are any. i like the dog pic, altho i think it could use a little touchup with a filter called 'melancholytron' (i think thats how u spell it) in photoshop. also a border and signature make it look complete [see below, i did what i would have done to it if it was mine]
i really like the stone corridor one too, i could be very interesting to play with some funny lighting (maybe a strong red light ?) anyway, very cool stuff, me likes, and keep it up, keep posting...
Thank you for your coment again andres
I'm happy that at least two people coment my photos now,
I thought it would be more but I guess that I have to wait..
I know that the sunset maybe isn't so sharp as it should be,
but my little pentax isn't so good when I try to make a photo from
my window with the highest digitalzoom.
was more a fun experiment and I think it tured out quite good even if the quality isn't the best.
You had right that the picture of Nike (my dog) needed something more.
I love you're work in photoshop. it isn't much, but now it looks more alive or something.
I guess I will have to start trying working a little with photoshop.
I've never really done that before with my pictures...
And about the corridor, I've been thinking about the light.
Eux told me about it too
Like I said before I haven't been working in photoshop so much yet.
But it's time now, isn't it? I will try to see what I can do, and maybe I will post it later
photoshop... its all practise my good friend. and as for digital zoom... eeep !
i would never use it personally because unlike optical zoom, it just pixelates the image.
keep it up, i like your stuff
now im off to assemble a portfolio for a university application. eeep!
