    nates photos-Crit me hard,,, july 2nd

    hey guys havn't been around for ages, volleyball has kind of taken over my life for the moment.
    currently I am shooting with my stock 18-55m and a sigma 70-210mm 4.5f
    I am looking at getting a prime 50mm and a 23mm 2.3f
    I have also talked to some local skaters I have permission to shoot so I am going to try my hand at that.
    here are some pics that I have taken lately that I have been satisfied with. C&C appreciated
    thanks for looking
    I will first start with some shots from my SW reef tank and its corals

    Yay, I look forward to skate photos one thing puzzles me though: You have to ask the skaters for permission? I have them asking me to take them.

    Your photos are showing a good variety, although I prefer some of your earlier work. I think the first one needs the focus point moved closer towards the lens, but apart from that I have no real crits.

    the first pic, I was holding a set of 49mm close up filters to my 52mm lense, so I was having a hard time working the focus, I will go back and try to move the focus towards the viewer.
    well it was more asking them if it bothered them that I shot them, small town people are kind of weird, although they are already planning some crazy stuff to show me.

    I took this last batch to see if I could shoot that style, it was interesting people looked at me funny when I was taking photos of buildings and stuff, some people asked for there photos to be taken, it was pretty fun. I may do it again sometime this spring.
    I will also look for some skaters in the cities parks see what I can get there.
    thanks for the crits klips

    here are the pics of the coral, I used 2 sets of 49mm macro filters held in front of my 52mm lense, I will be looking for 52mm filters soon.

    Very nice composition in #26.

    I like #28, but I think you should try to play around with more shots like that. Experimentation please... =)

    #29 is amazing in the fact that the nasty berries break up the composition so well.

    Wow, you're a busy photographer.


    I like the macro shots of petals and leaves as well the one of the lock as you get very clear subject matters then while taking the overall image into the realm of the abstract - a contrast I really like about photography.

    #10b, the house in the blue reflection is a wonderfully soothing image to look at. I am looking forward to future experimentations with reflections in your thread as you seem to have an liking for them.

    13b looks like a theater stage prop. I feel like leaning back and letting the actors flood the stage, sort of. Really nice.

    thanks Mr Mu.
    I figure the more shots I shoot the better I will get hopefully.
    I am going to keep workig with macro shots, I am looking for some more interesting subjects around me.
    I will also be going back to those buildings and trying to get some more reflection shots.
    13b is a view across the river, lots of fun going down the trails there and shooting.
    well hopefully I will have some more pretty soon here

    I'm not so sure about the the clouds, but I really like the last macro. The soft focus works for it, but I think the buds could be a bit sharper. =)

    Color and composition are ace in 3C. Very nice work with the focus in 7C and 8C as well. I would probably crop off a little of the bottom on 8C though.

    Most of these are a work compositionally speaking. however, you need to put so time in your technique as well. You see, many of them are under-exposed. Also, use depth of field to isolate your subject.

    Like, take this last bunch for example. Great DoF on all of them but most are underexposed. Other batches are the other way arround. Good exposure but lack good subject isolation.

    Anywayz, it's really good to see you back on the forums.

    Cheers!

    crits,

    erm,...

    you say crit me hard, but it's hard to do.

    I will try to pull things outta my nose anyway...

    1x
    it's a square composition, isn't it? One of the hardest formats out there, imo. Kudos for... argh! hang on. Crit.
    erm, the frame is leaner on the sides than on the top and bottom? Feck, that's ruining the image, man! (you see, I am trying real hard)

    2x

    HAHA, I got you now - it's the frame again! Apart from that it's one of those images which dance on the line between representational and abstract which I really love.

    3x
    there's a strange dark worm-like line in the top center and a dust spot on the left border which really distract from an otherwise ethereal photo with a dreamy atmosphere.

    4x
    If I had painted something like this I would be unbearable in my bloated self esteem for weeks to come. Wonderful.

    5x
    It's getting a bit tiresome. wonderfullysoftblahblahexcellentblahblahwishitwas mine


    hang on
    ARGH
    kay, can go on now...

    6x
    you know those japanese stories about those zen masters who keep a single simple ikebana arrangement in their hallway which looks kind of casually, but has to be rearranged in a ceremony each morning which can only done by the master himself, because everyone else wouldn't be able to reach a mindset of peace and contemplation so deep that they can think of what not to include in order to produce a masterpiece?

    No?

    Well, you don't need to know. That thing looks like a shot of that arrangement.

    7x
    there's a very out of focus hair in that photo, but by now I am willing to believe you placed it there and adjusted the focus so it mars a shot that would otherwise have been to boringly immaculate. Did you?

    That one does not talk to me. Unfortunately, I can't tell you why. Seems to be a subjective thing. Believe me, I would have loved to find something to crit hard. HA! Wait! The frame again, tsk tsk....

    9x
    Did I mention the Zen shit? Yea. I did.

    10x
    looks like the trees raised their arms to worship the sun. Otherwise I like the rest of this last update better.


    Gosh, I need to recover from the exhausting task of finding something to pick on. Are you happy now!?

    Wow, very nice update man!

    1x: There is some noise/grain in the green areas and the blurry part in the middle is a bit distracting, but I love the softness.

    3x: I'm not really feeling the cloud.

    4-9x: PURE GENIUS!!

    10x: I think a better crop would help.

    WE WANT MORE!

    Boost up the brightness (these are more or less underexposed) and you've got yourself a bunch of great photos of flora.


    Cheers!
