Fun in the Spray.

Fun in the Spray. by paulbroad

Great image, thanks for sharing

The Museum

The Museum by joycetalks

Interesting capture. In this type of photo the positioning of any people is important . In my experience timing is critical and the capture may take some time. The three seated people in the foreground gel well but the four walking in to their left less so.
If you were to study some images by the greats of this type of capture you will see what I mean, timing is everything.
Good one though,



Texting! by paulbroad

Well spotted Mrs Broad. Personally I'm not sure about the central composition but still good capture.


Joy! by paulbroad

A good one Paul. A man involved with his ice cream.

Yes the E-X1 is a super camera, my best selling photo with Alamy was taken on mine.

Interesting work. It could be outer space or an abstract of loo seat.

ed2go Assignment 2 - my lily

ed2go Assignment 2 - my lily by wyewye

The exposure looks ok with detail showing on white areas. White flowers can be difficult to expose correctly. I would not use flash to photograph this flower especially when a tripod can be used, unless it was windy and the plant was swaying around.

Choose the aperture required to achieve the depth of field (area in focus front to back) required. A slow shutter speed does not matter when using a tripod unless it's windy.
Aperture/DOF will depend on if you want the whole flower in focus or perhaps just the centre. If you want the whole flower sharp try to choose one which is detached from the background which should normally be as out of focus as possible.

My main advice with this image is regarding composition. Have a look a the shape of an arum lily and you will see the beauty of the flower lies in it's tapering shape leading up to the upper sweeping open area. You have missed this with your camera angle which shows just a top view.
Study a flower during your composition and access how to show it's beauty.

Still a nice photo, just keep taking as many shots as you can. Take a hundred and you will get one really good one. Experiment with camera settings and camera angles.

Don't know, or really care about the history but I do like the image,



Spotted! by paulbroad

Good one Paul, especially with Willie's mod with the two distractions removed/toned down.
A discreet little camera which give great results.

Flesh Fly

Flesh Fly by paulbroad

Good image Paul. Excellent detail of the fly.
Worth the effort of the careful set up.
The background does not contrast too well with the subject so detail on it's back is not as clear as it might be.
To get it in a situation where a different back ground was further away and more out of focus would be difficult, as would getting the fly at an angle.
Maybe flies can be doped or something?
Comments are not meant to criticise image but are my thoughts on approaching a very difficult subject. Another consideration is the purpose of photo, a record or something artistic?
Good one


how would its negative look like?

how would its negative look like? by pablophotographer

Interesting photo and question.
I can't add much except to say i would have tried to do what Willie's mod 2 has done. Also agree on creating separation between twigs and roof line.
