    Eye of the tourist

    I wanted to share with you a number of photographies I have taken during my journeys.

    They vary quite a lot in what the quality of the image is concerned - my cameras have evolved and so have I...

    I know I cannot compare these snapshots with the truly artistic images I have seen on the forum, but they may be worth wasting a minute or so to look at.

    The first set are a collection of images representing the sky - sunset, sunrise, clouds, they all fascinate me!

    The following are a set of photos I took inside the medieval castle of Rasnov, Romania.

    Ouch, I'm really sorry for the size of them babies... I had no idea they would look so monstruous...

    Could anyone give me a tip about the way I could shrink images before posting them?
    Thanks!

    Go to the pictures in Photobucket and go to edit

    i would suggest clicking 50%, but you could always do 75% (and if you need to you could do it twice which would be the equivalent of doing about 52%) and then they'll be smaller

    much! now i can actually see them!

    I must say the first one is definately my favourite. You have a good eye for composition and have managed to capture a sort of archetypal (blah spelling) straight on picture with the wheel and the wall. The first of the two houses is a very nice picture and has a nice composition and feel. I just wish the point on the roof wasnt touching the frame of the picture

    nice pictures! my favourite is the house with the crucifix... and your clouds/ sky-fotos look great. i like it that you set the horizon of the cityscapes so low that the sky becomes the dominant part of the picture.

    Thank you for your comments, they are most encourajing!


    I totally agree with you, Shade - the tip of the yellow house should never have touched the frame. My mind told my hands just that, but my hands, aparently tired after a full day, decided otherwise...
    I'm glad you like the first one. It nealrly cost me my leg. I was inside the Montemor Castle, in Portugal, chasing the sunset and I totally forgot about the closing hour. The keeper locked me inside and went about his business. I had to jump from a 3-3.5 metre high wall to get out.

    Thank you, too, stine, for your comments. I do indeed believe that the sky is so marvelous, multiformous and surprising, that it deserves to be the primadonna in a photo.

    What pains me, guys, is that I somehow fail to create an artistic photo. My pictures are only as beautiful as the things captured. When it comes to creating a setting or to make a portrait, I fail utterly.
    Any advice on the subject?

    hi! i know what you mean with the "artistic"-problem. sometimes i think the motive is great, but it still looks like a snapshot. i found that the presentation and the format change the whole appearance of a photo. a frame for example and a unusual or at least non-camera-standard format helps. so cropping is sometimes a good thing to do -- for example i would get rid of the people walking by the house with the cruzifix.
    you have a good eye for a subject. so it's just a question of a little "tweaking"... i know i don't take pictures as good as most of the guys here, but i hope i could help a little...
