Needs some pop. I played with it a little, not sure mine is any better...

Before


After



Ok...well...as it would seem, when this shot is larger, it looks much better. All cramped up it ruins it. I have it open in LR and it looks really good. On here, not so much. I will say, I love the shot, the small size just doesn't do it any justice.

Thanks for the suggestions Nubster. I played with it a bit more and I think I have a final. For some reason the photo looks dull in that copy of the original you posted, but in photoshop it looks great.

I masked the moss to make it more green and adjusted things a bit.

Yeah, I agree. It looked really good on my LR but not very good posted here. Weird. For some reason I really dig the shot, so much so that I am going to head out to a local creek next week and try to replicate it...lol

Everyone, It is called "critique the photo above you"...so don't just post a photo, BUT comment/critique on the one above you, it is all about using comments to take a better picture next time.


That being said, that bird is gorgeous! I really don't have any constructive criticism for you, the picture is very sharp and the color seems to be on point for me. GREAT PICTURE!

Here's one of my Bacopa's blooming. Random Macro shot. Just raw pic, no edit.

Good clarity in the picture, it's a little boring subject wise. Maybe if you crop it more vertical or horizontally it would liven it up a bit! The square crop is pretty boring to my eyes. Nice capture though!

This was taken with natural light using a long exposure, my strobe was broken so this is all I could do! I'm really happy with it!

Great shot, especially using a long exposure. I love the color and the detail is not. Not sure about the composition. It doesn't grab me immediately...it's one of those shots that you have to kinda look at a bit and it starts to grow on you...

Here's a quicky I grabbed of my kid...did this one square cropped...I think it works. It printed well at least and I have it on the wall.

Haha.. I loved the photo. The smile on his face is just picture perfect. B&W pictures have a feeling of its own. Gotta take some B&Ws now. Thanks for sharing.

Here's a photo from 2011 i think. I took it at an ancient Fort in India near Mumbai. The humidity was more than 95%. All the branches of the trees had moss on them. Even all the walls of that Fort..

I like the feeling...it looks like what people try to replicate in their tanks...

This is a shot I grabbed yesterday during K9 training...he was coming in for a bite and got called off last second. Thankfully his training is spot on cause I wasn't wearing a suit...lol...

nice shot , very sharp for a motion shot, like the shadow too. I would probably crop everything out, just leave the dog with the shadow and maybe darken it a bit.

Great shots! Love seeing fellow Foco residents.


Tried to catch my sword in motion, my 35mm isn't the best for capturing aquarium shots.
