Bridge Near Runcorn, Cheshire, England
This was my first day out with my camera. I don't know what aperture or shutter speed I used. I just seen this view and thought it would be a nice photo. I hope you like it and I also hope that as I post more and more photo's on this site. My techique will improve with practice.
I like the way that the curve of the grass in the foreground matches the curve on the bridge, and the trees in the background. I also like the framing of the bridge below and to the right which gives the scene some dynamism despite the bridge being in the middle of the frame.
From an improvement point of view my suggestions would be;
1) Consider using slide film for landscapes, or at least switch to a Fuji or Kodak print film - the colours and quality will be higher (50-100 ISO is also fast enough).
2) Look for better light in the scene - early mornings and late afternoons will cast a warmer light, and some shadows across your image which is a little flat.
3) Whilst it works in this image consider placing your image on the imaginary intersection of a noughts and crosses board placed on the frame. This is known as "the rule of thirds". It add a more dynamic and interesting feel to photographs than placing the subject dead centre.
Hope this helps
