Ben & His Mates (ii)

Nice pic,but I would change the title from ''Ben and his mates'' to ''Meet me there at twelve''

From nowhere to anywhere by IGreenGables

From nowhere to anywhere


Your picture is what it is. An introvert thought imposed on nature. It might have been an accidental finding, all the same. Time does not matter in such cases and pictures. I tried to search for light and I guess right before I confirm on the metadata, it was evening when you shot this. No direct light from the sun, no shadows. I see you noticed the twist on the road and the lines to nowhere. The vast empty space and the signs of a work object which made its way to a place too far to see, or away from us to see. The labour and the result of it. The growth of crop in defiance of human intervention, the victory of nature over man. Yeah, some believed we tamed it. Ha! Most of it is wild ocean. Anyway,

if it was the pattern you were interested in... you are way too low to display it. I would have even gone up a ladder to shoot it. The best way to do it instead is to raise your arm and have the camera tilted, looking down at about 10 degrees. The process can result from fun to frustration depending how fast you get your shot right but at least with digital you can review the results and make corrections immediately.

Aesthetically you can modify it in many ways for example you can make the sky much darker leaving the crop as bright. You can even make a composite with it serious or fun like extending your arm while holding a small scythe, or holding a die cast car model over the tracks left by the tractor. Does the word have to be serious?

This is my serious advice; seriously.

Stokker by ellenib


Great black and white picture.

I think it's universal. The bridge staff never has a good relationship with the engine staff and vice versa. There is always this competition. ''We'' and ''they''. 7 shorts and 1 long whistle and we are all off!

Watch! by K4RL



I think Rolex(?) loses to Ray-Ban here. All the attention goes to the glasses and the shapes seen on the inside of the frame.
Noticed that she is wearing the watch upside down on her left wrist
I think she should have used the right hand and wear it with the winding mechanism outside to show it the way it appears now.

Nice black and white and interesting crop though.

Hi, you have captured light wonderfully.

It's pity that you went to close or zoomed too much so as the front two legs are missing from the frame.
Keep your calm when you find a frame to shoot. Check your frame if it does contain everything that has to be inside it.
I know horses can move fast but your ISO was too slow to allow you to be ready for capturing their agile behaviour.

TRAPPED by chrisevans


Clear, well lit, good image Chris. Good website as well, I had a look.

It may take long for some people to register the picture. Viewers, as outsiders, would have to shed the light form the front towards the cell and the inmate. I don't think cells have lighting on the side walls. So, who is the one behind the bars then, eh?

Tips the hat

High Key Portrait by markst33

Very pleasing result, eye catching image, you manage to get his attention and co-operation really well. I think the ability itself is a form of art called ''parenting''.... or ''being a child again''. Bravo

Excellent, Bravo!

I wonder how many of the people who will envy this picture for its beauty will wonder why their newest camera can't get pictures as good as this.

Black and White! by paulbroad

Black and White!

Hi Paul.

I am looking at your picture and although I see an elegant lady I can not stop thinking (and I shall agree with Dudler -love his meticulous crop-) this looks like a fashion shot to me. It shouts FASHION (of a certain era).

Fashion shots are connected with .... magazines. I have watched an exhibition of how the photography of fashion evolved from the beginning of the 20th century till our days and you could easily see that before the age of supermodels (i.e. Naomi Campbell, Carla Monaco) the star in every frame was the garment rather than the model.
So influenced by that and being very, very stringent with the frame space (this could take in a catalogue) I suggest a crop that starts just below the lower lip and lets the ''customer'' focus on the combination of scarf, blouse, jacket. A slight vertical crop is needed form the right so that the background surface of the left is gone.
Alternatively you can crop at the lower end of the thick blue line on the jacket as a shot that sells accessories like hat, sunglasses and scarf. I bet Carla Monaco is too busy to get her to pose for the accessories pic, so you can keep the same model.

Had you had the camera hanging at your heart level with autofocus? Good job done.

A man crossing  a bridge by xwang

A man crossing a bridge


it's a matter of personal taste this one; what makes a photographer jump while on the field is a rather personal matter. On one hand it seems you had the time to choose the camera settings of ISO, aperture, time, colour and ''grain''. I can't be certain if it was raining at the moment you took the picture, he is wearing a jacket, but I think this would look far more dramatic if he was holding an umbrella against the wind. The skewing of the bridge would then underline the impact of weather on you as well. Darks look dark, the skew of the bridge could be leaning on the right instead of the left (to add drama to his effort) but the subject seems to be the weakest link here.

They're Off. by wentnorth

They're Off.


Your action shot reveals the spur of the moment and horses' behaviours varied.
Although the response of the horse on the left is interesting, most of the action you want to reveal lies on the right of the above mentioned horse. Should this horse be in your frame? it is already distanced from the horse next to it, I would consider cropping it too.
Banehawi has mentioned the horse on the right and the numbers, his suggested cropping is one I considered myself as well, but I would try to capture the gate numbers wholly. You could have gone wider with your lens, 120mm would allow space for the horse on the right and the numbers on the top.
Most importantly for me the picture could benefit from an even lower shooting angle which would allow the whole stature of the horses to be displayed in its grace and powerfulness.

silhouttes by bonny


Great silhouette picture , bravo Smile

It looks like a very interesting way to build... domes on top first? then the supporting walls?

It looks like a miracle already! (is this a Russian Orthodox Church being built?)

It would be nice to let us know

Waiting for the Tide by technical_tim

Waiting for the Tide

hello from me as well;

looks either too early or too late or it was a dull day... it's not your fault; you can't have everything you ask when you are out there with your camera.

I have not looked at the metadata...no need to do so. Tee issue of the picture doesn't lay there.
I would ask you to consider this is a painting. I don't mind if you painted with oil-based pigments or acrylics.
Look at the background and the foreground... the ship on its solitude , on the despair, waiting patiently for its salvation, its liberator, the sea. The elements of the story should be profound, the ship and the sea is all you needed. Errr... that means the houses at the back are a real drawback in the narrative of this story.. unless you want to call this frame ''the X boat in the Y beach''. Realism against fantasy.

And then you have it in your canvas 3x2... but why not excluding the houses part on the left and earn this extra space to put it on the right...? It would look even better in a 4x3 frame...which I am not sure if your camera can shoot it but that would be a good point to look forward for your next camera, to be offering various framing aspects.

Close up jumper by cf73

I remember as well the previous pictures, my congratulations for this happy picture.
My only suggestion would be a wider frame which could include the height of the obstacle,
unless you could not stand further back.

Kyle profile by fatfranksfolley

Kyle profile

I don't know what you had in mind or what you were asked to do. It reminds me pictures from the 1920's.
I like it as it is, black and white is not a real depiction, it's rather than an interpretation, of the world.
The fact that it is not perfect makes this picture great. Bravo.
I suggest a crop that loses the top 1/3rd of the total height and the 1/3rd of the total width from the right.

Black shoes with bows. by shishidog

Black shoes with bows.

Hi shishi.

I shall be honest with you and reveal you what I son't like it as it is. The legs are good, the shoes are fine, the pose is playful but the background with the creams and greens(?) and the position close to the centre spoil it for me. I would therefore suggest a conversion to black and white and a crop. A square frame could take them nicely in too.

best regards

Granny by Olga_June


Hi Olga.

I like your vertical frame and the composition. Your relation with the sitter (your grandmother) manage to bring out a certain calmness from her and confidence in you, by her, which is clearly visible. It's a very well done study in lighting as well, as she has some in her pupils and no hard shadows on her face or teh background at all. It's a very well done portrait for me, bravo.

Shelter Home by iancrowson

Shelter Home

Quote: But how does she afford a dog?

My guess is that at night the dog acts as the walls of a house, it is there between you and strangers who may harm you. It's safety, can you afford not to have it?

The tonal range of the picture is great Ian. I would cut-off a bit from the total height of the frame so the too bright part of the pic is eliminated.
will try to upload a mod of what I mean.

I am not jumping from joy when I see a homeless person. Nobody can tell with certainty what the future holds for them.
