I like the last one. I'm not sure what it is but it looks cool
the las shot is very nice...and i have the same fountaine in my city.
My guarding angel is a double agent !!
#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 executed.
#2: Photo of a building. The angle doesn't quite give right to the building and shot with the sun behind it leaves the building bland and less contrasty. If you want more from this building you'd have to wait for another time of the day, shoot it from the sun's side, pinpoint some fine details or try something abstract with the lines... I don't know
#3: Photo of a fountain. Sorry for the lack of criticism but can't think of any
--> #1 is definately the strongest of the lot. Good job!
Maybe someone else can give more thorough ciritcs than my ramblings
T.Luu, there's a church near where I live, I wasn't sure quite what to do with it when it comes to photographing it, but now you've given me an angle to approach it from at least. So I can at least say your crits aren't all bad.
I originally opened this thread to make a post about something I didn't have time to earlier, and that's that the building photo is a little large, meaning that not all of it fits on the screen at the same time. This has a negative effect as all that sky at the top makes the building look tall and majestic and with the viewer not being able to see all the building at the sky at the same time the effect is ruined, which isn't nice. The viewing pleasure of the photo is ruined slightly, it's a shame. The building does look tall without the sky, but the sky does add something a little extra - like adding a triangle to the orchestra, that little extra 'ping' (yes, I can think of better comparisons, just I like this one too much not to use it).
Though another reason I now see for opening this thread [other than to read T.Luu's building crit] is that now I can comment on your first picture in more detail after seeing it again in more detail (due to more time)... it's so purdy! A little fuzzy (it appears I'm on a crusade against fuzzy today, but not Fuzzybär, we all love him) though I love how the light comes through the leaves like that... nice.
Haha, it fits fine on my screen, thats a problem i will have to adress in future.
yeah 1 is my favorate, shooting on a Canon 5d with a 16-35 mm lens so you get that beautifull effect of everything bending away from the center of the lens. i just liked 3 for its DOF, 2 i only really like for its perspective, i would agree that the building itself is bland and low contrast but i still like the shot.
the first one is amazing!
I love the first one, it has a CG quality to it.
Uhm, actually i dont really think you can say that about a photo. I think it goes the other way arround, you can say something like "look, this cg ahas photo quality"Originally Posted by John.D
Anyhooooo, very good work on number one.
But it's a photo, and it reminds me of the CG bloom graphics that are common in games these days, particularly The Elder Scrolls Oblivion.
i would agree with John.D I think that a photo can have the same properties of a artificially created image eg. a photo that one would assume that was not possible to create without artifical help
