Daffodils outside Ripon Cathedral

Daffodils outside Ripon Cathedral by xwang

The colours here are really flat Jas.
I've increased the exposure by a full two stops (using CS6) and it's still not showing any signs of over exposing.
Also it's lacking contrast and it's very yellow.. I've made adjustments using curves but all I get is a somehow surreal image.
I see that you used spot metering and I'm wondering what it was that you metered from?
Personally, I almost never use "spot." In this instance, I'd probably have used "centre weighted" and metered from the central, most prominent daf., although "matrix" would, I think, work just as well.
Hope this helps; sorry if it all sounds a bit negative.

On the printer...

On the printer... by xwang

I can indeed read it Jas.
My profession; the one that I trained for five years to perfect, is that of a compositor.
My job was to work with type, just as this, to produce printed documents.
The way to read it, particularly when you're working with it, is to turn it so that it's updide down to you; ie. the top of the page is closest.
That way, it still reads from left to right.
I can still read "mirror writing," which it effectively is, as quickly and easily as I can read normal text.
With a little practice, it takes a surprisingly short time to learn.

There you are . . .
. . . some more useless information!

This is much better Denny.


Jackrabbit2 by StrayCat

Hi Denny,
This is good but it still has that somewhat 'washed out' look that the previous ones had and there's still that slight cast.

Northern Flicker

Northern Flicker by StrayCat

This is certainly sharp enough Denny and there's plenty of detail.
I was going to suggest that it's over exposed slightly but upon opening it in CS6, I was surprised to see that the histogram actually falls quite well short of the RHS.
Not sure what to make of that.

Tunnel 7

Tunnel 7 by KangaRU

A place that really is as horrible as it looks . . .

Parakeet by pluckyfilly

Hi Ann,
A few issues with your background, I fear.

local enduro racing

local enduro racing by topcatz

My kind of shot!
John's pretty much said it all.
I'd just add that it benefits from a slight increase in contrast. The histogram falls just short of the LHS.
Using curves, I applied black and white thresholds, in my mod.
Hope this helps.

Hi Kathryn,
Do you have a "pay me" page again?

Staircase in The John Rylands Library

Staircase in The John Rylands Library by xwang

Hi Jasmine,

I can see the merits of both of your versions and why you chose to modify the original.

Personally, I think I'd be inclined to find a middle road; something that displays more detail than the original, yet not quite so low key(ish) as your modded version.

Hope this helps.

Hi Kathryn,
I don't comment on your stuff much these days, as there's no longer anything much for me to say. The occasional social call or email is much more pleasant.
Although, having just said that, you've got some outstanding images here, images to be proud of.
Well done.


Added Date: 11/02/2013 - 11:32 PM

Possibly Jack.

. . . early days.

I've just found your pf. John; there's some excellent work on display here.


Added Date: 09/04/2011 - 11:23 PM

Hi Steven,
I've just come here from your "Bandstand" upload and what I've found here is some excellent work.
Some of these shots are really first class. Likewise the contents of your website.
You obviously have an analytocal eye as much of your work includes exact symmetry and precise composition and positioning within the frame.
Not something that's essential necessarily but it certainly helps!
Well done.

What an incredible portfolio!
Absolutely brilliant work.

This is excellent work Tim.
You are to bee congratulated.

Hi Peter, Small World!
I've come to your portfolio after you uploaded a comment on one of my offerings (a squirrel with a crunchie!) and I've found myself looking at a collection of steam images, most of which I've studied and probably voted for in the galleries!
Great work.

'Lazy and unenhanced'.
I like the sound of that.
I find that manipulation can so easily become overdone.
Nicely varied portfolio you have here and good to see that Eliza's got the bug!
Hapy new Year,

What a great, fun portfolio!
Keep it up!
Best wishes,
