Pitch Black Queen

Pitch Black Queen by nineteen68


The issues I notice are framing and posing.

I worked my modification in the principle of the mood you wanted to express.

I cropped from the right as you see, to reduce the amount of light; the whole of the picture suggests me you wanted something dark, well bright parts ought to be minimum I thought, hence the crop.

To add a connection between the woman and the nature I have cropped her feet to make the dress the last part to touch the soil , as the trunks of the trees do.

Some tree branches behind her raised arm and the opposite shoulder of that hand could be aligned to add more mystery, if she could have been told to move to your right, a bit. Keep an eye on the edges of your frame they are important parts of the picture as well, don''t let the main subject distract you from taking care of other details too when you work with still nature or people posing.


The "Ludden" Cottage

The "Ludden" Cottage by ArildMoe

Hello Arlid.

I tried to upload my modification but it was deemed too small to be uploaded. I had cropped your image and retained just the right part with the shoes having kept out of this square frame that was left the black pot and the shelf it stands on. I kept some of the space between the two shelves in my frame though, despite a bit of black that appears in the bottom of the frame. I think the picture can hold itself up just with the objects on the right, the full image appears to have an overpowering flash shadow on the top of the pot because of the handle and an unknown shadow below the pot as well. The composition as a whole kept some objects on the left too close to the edge of the frame and the height from where some of these objects have been photographed looks less engaging compared to shooting from the same level with your objects. Their age seems appropriate to be recorded in black and white.



Problems! by paulbroad

Hey, it's safe to light my cigar now.

The scene displays disaster at the background, calmness at the front. Strange. A bottle standing, not even emptied, or half emptied. I bet you can't get drunk or misbehave with that much drink consumed, unless it's absinthe.

The upper part from the front door is missing, having been cropped too tightly. Picture is not exactly level. But even you tilt slightly to the left (max. 2 degrees) to correct the level of the liquid in the bottle, you can't convince the eye of the viewers not to attempt to level the picture assuming the biggest line of the picture, the line down the door.

How could have this worked for me? The bottle would be lying on the ground, no liquid in it, car doors would have been wide opened (from passengers escaping from the car). I hope you get the money you want from it Paul. I am not buying it as it is. It fails to spark drama for me.

Changing of the guard Norwegian style

Changing of the guard Norwegian style by cegidfa

Rather good scan then Smile

I have seen Norwegian soldiers displaying weapon accuracy exercises, quite skilled performers they were. But I can't remember if they still used these riffles though, these are Heckler and Koch G3A3.

I would suggest to shoot from the hip on this occasion.... (probably you'd have to kneel to achieve this, as I don't think F50 has removable pentaprism) Shooting from the hip (height) would have given a sense of more height to the guardsmen and the palace.


Church of the Prophet Elias

Church of the Prophet Elias by Ady_E

I do not know how did you make the sun have this shape of shine in the lens but the picture looks wonderfully arranged. Churches are oriented to face the east so deciding to shoot the church during late evening would turn the light against the lens (contre jour as a French friend says); it actually may be a good advice for some people this...
I suspect the place you shot this is in Cyprus, rather than Cypus as the frame says?



Dangerzoned by nishant101

Hello again Brave Nishant.

I think this gear you have might be waterproof, haha.

We talk photography here but allow me to discuss clothing instead for a second. You will see the point soon.
If you were to go out and dressed to impress would you ever combine a copper coloured traousers with white socks, green/black woven belt, with grey-blue-black-white shirt? It would be a killer... or an eyesore at least. On the other hand... (and I have not read the book) if you were dressed in grey, black, white don't you think you'd look more appealing?

I strongly suggest a black and white conversion as I imagine it more encompassing of this idea of unity of nature as taught and captured by Clyde Butcher (youtube him, if you want).

Great picture as a frame, I like its symmetry too.


Touch me not

Touch me not by nishant101

Hello Nishant.
It's a truly wonderful picture, I like the motion of the waves as recorded by your settings.
I am not in favour of the logo, nor the proportion of the sky, so I would crop the top 1/6th of the frame;
much of the tension happens on the bottom part and there is where the attention would stay, the sky is plentiful to remind the doom coming towards the shell; even if cropped as I suggest.

Great picture once more,

In the window

In the window by suiciderock

interesting face and beautiful model... Blush
I feel pity that her legs and feet are not included in the picture.
I see the settings and I see you have gone to the telephoto end of the lens,
allowed the iris to be open to the widest aperure and got an ISO 640...
It seems you went for a high key which you could try with ISO200, f/11, 1/2000s
and a speedlight at the bottom behind a white umbrella, pointing upwards at +1.5EV.
I do like it , but I equally miss theses legs.

Boy with Balloon

Boy with Balloon by Neenad

Hi, very interesting picture and good conversion to black and white.
I would suggest that you crop both sides to take away the partial sign on the left and the too bright white building on the right, that way the picture appears to be slim and tall improving our attention upwards towards where the child looks at, the baloon.


Santorini by jerryiron

Hello Alexander,
I would be very tempted to take this picture in a portrait orientation, vertical, rather than horizontal. I think a bigger proportion of the top dome on the left of the picture would look more interesting than what the little dom on the right bottom corner does. All the other aspects of the picture, including the sunset colour, albeit, less, would retain, if not increase, our attention on your nice picture.

Art Nouveau staircase in side Le site du Petit Palais created for The exhibition 'Paris 1900'

Art Nouveau staircase in side Le site du Petit Palais created for The exhibition 'Paris 1900' by TornadoTys

Hi Tyson, really nice composition there, it looks a fascinating architectural space indeed. I like your positioning against the statue and the staircase which creates a nice curve into the frame. I am not sure if sawsengee's mod included the following suggestions I will make, I saw it but I don't remember what I saw from it. I would urge you to crop horizontally a tiny part from the bottom and the top as well; the top crop would get rid of the first spotlight from the left- which points almost nowhere but the corner of your frame-far too out to offer anything good to your picture aesthetically, crop horizontally just below that. The next tiny crop applies to the bottom where you missed to include the first step of the staircase, follow a straight line from the base of the statue. Last crop I suggest would be a vertical from the right which keeps the vertical ironwork (which doesn't look vertical) out of our eyes, there is plenty of ironwork and artwork to admire even without its presence. Enjoy Smile

Italy. The space #1

Italy. The space #1 by jerryiron

I think that you needed a graduated natural density filter to reduce the flare from the top and retain the colours at the bottom; you can immitate the effect in the adobe lightroom as well.
Nice view and picturesque location, bravo

Stock Rod 46

Stock Rod 46 by billmyl


it works for me; it creates the sense of speed successfully. The current framing reminds a sandwich of 3 horizontal layers green, white and green. Yes it has some black/grey too but it blends nicely into the main 3 other layers. The nice thing is that if you skip the top green layer (and the black/grey) you are left with another frame which is dominated by the fluo colours, pink, green which contrast the white and the grey.

Welcome back Ross.

I came to notice Iain due to a skillful set of pictures he had taken, quite innovative, very clear as concepts, and excellently executed.
The last characterises all of his portfolio, as his skill shine.
Iain is a proof that it is much better for a photographer to stop worrying about the equipment and start focusing on knowing to put it in good use and also of how important the imagination is for turning the ordinary into spectacular.

Tactile, well seen and well shot pictures. Congratulations IgorKo!

I speak in a language which is not my own, with the conventions it has and it places on my opinion for Alda's work. I hope I shall be understood.

Alda does not "take pictures" as a photographer. She "makes pictures" like a painter does. A painter has an idea, or a stimulus, and works with his/her tools to make it. I think Alda does the same but instead of brushes, she uses a camera. She portrays "inner thoughts" which she turns into images for other people to see. Not many people have that charisma and that doesn't mean any less for people who shoot more "formal" type of pictures.

I shall agree with Karl above, I came to know glenn's work through his kind advice. His work is a meticulous celebration of light, shapes and life. His shots are well thought, not just opportunistic or lucky, "Sans tÍte", "Joy ride" prove a photographer who is not only able to conceptualise a picture but is readily prepared to make it happen also. I wish you all the best Glenn, it is a pleasure and honour to have you here.

In this quiet and cold night let me bid you farewell with the words of Oscar Niemeyer, the great Brasilian architect, designer of the city of Brasilia and the UN district in NY (among others; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Oscar_Niemeyer_works ) who passed away a few days ago in old age: "When they ask me if the idea of people admiring my work in future, when I will be deseased, pleases me I remind them that these people, too, will pass away at some time. Everything has a beginning and an end. I have. You have. Architecture has [an end]. We must try for the best, yet remain humble. Nothing lasts for ever."
