Beautiful Colours

Beautiful Colours by marshfam19

V1 for me too. v2 looks too busy and saturated whereas v1 has nicely blurred background and much softer colours.

drawn magnetically by the foreground into the frame and towards the rocky outcrop. Magic.


Schooling by SPARROWHALL

I agree with both comments. An ISO of 400 or more would indeed bring the shutter speed up to a point where the leg movement would'nt be a problem. For sure you need some room in front of this splendid horse to allow it to move into frame. Just one more small niggle if I may. The rider's eyes are shaded and it might help next time if she looks up so that the sun will light her face more.

I agree about the crop. Foreground interest is all very well but in this image the reflection of the clock is close enought to the front to lead us in naturally.

Red Zed Reflected

Red Zed Reflected by petach

Headlights technique taught to me by the veritable King of car photography, Taly Noy.
Smallest possible aperture and if needed an ND filter to slow the exposure right down. Longer the better Have assistant inside car but out of sight. (Weight of assistant as a bonus lowers the vehicle's suspension making it look even sexier). Start exposure with lights off. After an appropriate time has elapsed get assistant to turn on lights for a second or so then off again.
Job done. If there is no assistant you can cap the lens while operating the lights yourself.

Photography, particularly of the digital kind with instant feed back is all about experimenting and learning from the experience. One look at the camera's LCD screen should have told you this one hasn't worked.
Like everyone else, I don't like to be too negative and wouldn't want to put you off but this one is definitely for the delete button.

Very nice bro. Well worked exposure deserves all the plaudits.

The Door

The Door by Paintman

Certainly getting there. Nice image well spotted. The tints work for me too. Could you lose the window on the right though? The pots are suffering a little distortion as a result of the wide angel so I do think you need a longer lens and to "elevate the shot" try shooting from a lower prospective. That will make the door more dominant and the scuffy earth inside the pots will be less noticeable.

indian summer

indian summer by george_gradinaru

Gives us all something to strive for. I was admiring it when my wife looked over my shoulder and said "Great shot Dave. When did you take it"? Should I confess? Of course. Well done George.


Ioan by Geraint

Can't fault it Geraint. Touch of the Irving Penn about it and I particularly like the eye contact.

My first portrait

My first portrait by Carrie_1

I like this portrait a lot but like Clicknimagine I think a touch less light would have left a bit more detail to the subject's right side. I disagree about the eyes though. His expression is a little too vacant. Google (Irving Penn at the national) and see how he captured Dietrich and Pacino with similar lighting to your's but the eyes looking at camera make the shots each time for me.
