lakeside sunset

lakeside sunsetHi, this has the potential to be a nice photo with a reasonable conposition, but the foreground is underexposed and parts of the sky are overexposed. The photo could have been much better if you had used a graduated neutral density filter to balance the exposure of the sky/land. There's plenty of info on this site regarding ND grads. This would have made you able to see the jetty and would have given the sky more texture and better colour. Hope this helps. Nick

Harju in Fall

Harju in FallHi Soundphobic,
I don't know where Harju is, but it certainly looks beatiful. I think there are a number of things that could be done to make the photo better. Firstly, the horizon isn't straight, so that needs straightening. Secondly the branch in the top left corner I think distracts the eye. Branches like that can frame a photo, but you need to have more of it up the side of the photo, otherwise it looks like it accidently crept in. Thirdly, I think the sky is overexposed and the foreground underexposed - you should try using neutral density graduated filters to try to balance the exposure - there is good guidance how to do this on this website. Finally, I think a lower viewpoint would have helped the composition. If you look at all of the good landscape photographson this website, the vast majority all have some sort of foreground interest to lead the eye in.
Hope this helps,
Nick

Off Road

Off RoadAgree with previous comments - I think the crop is too tight. SInce you've got most of the quadbike in the frame, it looks a bit silly that a small area is cropped. Also would have benfitted from smaller depth of field with trees more blurred.
