I like the look. Were you going for the depth of field you got?

Here is one of my first landscape attempts.

The focus point is too much in the middle (the wood below, the river) try to look into the golden rule and shift your camera al little to the left or right. And unfortunate it is not that sharp, maybe use a tripod or faster shutterspeed...

Talking about slow shutterspeeds, this one was intented, any critiques!

Looks good, I take you were showing them competing. Very beautiful fish.

Actually my photo was taken with a 1/8 shutter speed hand held and the focus was in the center of the picture. I was looking to blur the water. It was also windy that day.

Yo-han thanks for getting me to look at the photo again. There was quality loss in the conversion to JPEG and the resize of the file from the RAW format. Looks like I am going to have to remember to convert and resize the file and then go back and correct the data loss.

Here is my photo after the assistance from Yo-han.



Hopefully a lesson learned.

May not have gotten a good crop to the golden rule.

1)Shot this from about 40ft away, just messing around.


2)This is one of my early attempts at a high saturation HDR image. Something bugs me about this picture.

foley803, both are my fav.

The first one has very very nice bokeh, may I know what lens. But I guess it isn't a canon/nikon lens?

The 2nd one very very nice HDR process. Not too much and not too little. Just about right!

teah,

Very nice portrait there. Focus is nice and I liked how you used a little bit of foliage in the front left corner. My only thing would be the photo is too centered. If she was more to the left side, I think it would have a bigger impact... but then again... I'm not a portrait photographer



Here's one from the carnival in town for the 4th of July

I like the photo and understand why the framing is tilted but every time I look at the people in front I want to tilt my head to match.

Fish related

The fish shot is okay, but the background is distracting and the fish isnt close enough or doing anything interesting with the surroudings to warrant including it, but I'm aware that's probably as close as you could focus with that particular lens.

The car shot is nicer, gives a good sense of environment, but I feel like a different angle might have been beneficial, but cars are hard to do...


Here's one from a semi-recent engagement session (I'm backlogged on editing, been too busy with different photoshoots)...

I think the photo is nice. I like how you put it in the grass.

I have to say, I do like this picture, but it makes my neck hurt no joke. This reminds me of my aunts place and they have the same car! I think the color balance is on point as well.

Here's a random shot I took today of my Chinese Hillstream Loach right next to Cryptocoryne Nurii.

Great shot. Given the pale color of the rock he's on, you did a great job of getting enough contrast to see his opaque fins. The colors on the leaf are somewhat eerie!

Here's an old drive up bait shop in the Pettaquamscutt R. in Narragansett. I took this with my film camera and I think I was lucky to get an old photo look.

Spur-of-the-moment shot.
