Yeah, it's a bit over the top but the effect is cool. Looks like a great place to shoot, I need to get down that way sometime.

Here's a 5 shot HDR of my own, Blackwater Falls in Davis, WV....

Interesting post processed photo. I would love this as a long over exposure more, just my opinion

I think that long exposures of water really make the shot look great. Not that short exposures are bad, but especially for this photo, the waterfall looks a lot better with the long exposure

I like the slow shutter shot better too!



Looks like we're in for nasty weather.




Not one of my better shots, but I was bored and going through some shots that didn't make the grade.

That photo is great! As always... JEALOUS. I just wish it was of something more interesting. Like a bird on the log.


Apple Blossom. I wish I had taken the photo following the rule of thirds more...

Thanks! I do admit, I like the picture a lot. I have a color version as well, but I think the black and white edit has so much more punch and impact like you mentioned.




Very nice! I honestly can't find anything wrong with it, and if I could, I would mention it. But I see it as a great image



Here's another one from the same E-session, the signature/watermark is in the center again, mostly because I want to use it for display/branding.

Erik, one other thing. You need to make the word Photography larger. Remember, scripts run smaller than their counterparts. What looks good in Helvetica at 14pts is way to small for Nuptial or Shelley Allegro.

Since nobody critiqued my blossom photo, I figured I get this started again.

Well since you insist.

I see no real focal point here. My eyes kept wandering trying to see what the foto was about. Finally realized it was a flying fish. I think. Possibly. Maybe. I'm not sure.

Your apple blossom shot is pretty good but too much is in the shadows. I'd have tryed a little fill flash or actually used a reflector to block the light so it was a little more even. Also a larger aperture so that DOF would have been shallower.

Very true, I just have to keep it the way it is so that it matches my website, otherwise its not very effective branding...I totally get your point though!



Anyways, here's one from a recent engagement. Keep in mind that this is one of many, so of course you would see the groom-to-be-'s face in the others...critique away! Tell me how horrible I am at photography, steal my lunch money, whatever ...

As always, your photos look amazing. One thing I noticed. It looks like an owl was carved into the bark of the tree. Also. I will glady take your lunch money.

My camera was going NUTS at this point. I did a hard reset afterwards. Anyways, it came out with this cool photo. No editing done whatsoever. Just came out this way, unfortunately.

The people spoils the main subject of the photo, which is the horse and its carriage.
