I'm very much a beginner when it comes to the photograpy and still have a lot to learn about the basics. This is the first image I have uploaded for comment and would be grateful for any advice on compostion, technical points etc.
Nice crisp detail,well framed by the tree on the left
I love your blend of light on the church, however I would crop the left hand side and the top. I think the left-hand side is too dark.
Yes - there is too much dark tree on the left.
However you've got a great sky there and the combination of that with the church and the great light on the tree to the right of the church would make a good composition.
technically the exposure is good, nice light on the church, nothing blown out to white, and detail kept in the darker areas of the treees. Compositionally there's a bit too much foliage IMO, I'd crop from the left and a little sliver from the top.
A careful slight boost in contrast and brightness (maybe 10% each) would lift it a bit, but be careful not to cause any areas to burn out to white
Welcome to EPZ, keep the uploads comimg, you'll learn a lot if you want to, and have a good time as well
Nice to see your work starting to appear on EPZ Paddy. Very nice image and like already said this is a fantstic medium for learning. Keep em coming mate. See you on tuesday.
To much on the left and crop a bit off the top to make the church more in control of the image. The left tree dominates to much.
Seems general that the crop I had in mind is shared by others. Any bland areas without any interesting detail is better cropped. I also feel that a lower viewpoint for a bit more foreground would help.
The lighting is fine where you will find that shifting patches of light is better than full sunlight.
Many thanks for the comments. Will have a play with cropping the image as suggested.
