A quick view of banehawi's recent activity.

    Flat and dull it is.

    For me, very inaccurate white balance, low contrast and underexposed, all of this you can address with in-camera settings to improve your point and shoot approach!

    Mod uploaded.

    Regarding Exposure Compensation doesnt work in M mode, - it doesnt; BUT the camera doesnt tell you that, it lets you think it does by showing, on the LCD, the + or th3 minus compensation you used; its simply the camera showing the compensation, but it does not apply it. To apply it, it needs acces to either the shutter speed; the aperture, or the ISO. In M mode, you have control of all 3, so the camera just really smiles at you!

    BURN and DODGE are terms that come from the film world, and are used in all post processing software; BURN means to darken a specific area of the image, and DODGE means to lighten a specific area.

    This is very good. And perhaps Dog with a Lap Lady could also work!

    Its a lovely shot. Despite usinh Manual mode, Spot metering, the actual subject, in that light rules this image.

    Consider all the good feedback, it will increase your success rate.

    I would think that some sharpening, some work on contrast and exposure would benefit this, and I have uploaded a modification based on this, with a crop off the top.

    Well done, and enjoy the site

    Hi Craig.

    This is very much a finished product, treated and framed. What youve done works quite well. I would be inclined to have left a little more space at the top of the original, and the original image also needs a slight CW rotation as done in my mod, - you can see its a small amount by the frame.

    These are good.

  • Sarah High Key

    This is not at all high key, and in fact as a normal portrait its underexposed! Something is not right.

    You are uploading with the ProPhoto profile, and this may be affecting what we see to some extent depending on our choice of browser (Chrome being the worst), but even taking the image into Photoshop and looking at the histogram, which I will also upload as a screen shot in the mods, shows its well underexposed; with high key, you needs that histogram biased well to the right.

    Also loaded an example of high key from my perspective; had to reduce noise in her top as lifting black detail (a component of high key process) caused a lot of visible noise.

    Keep at it.

  • Some nice work, - youve a good eye for a shot

  • Lots of really good shots in this portfolio, - many deserving of much more acknowledgment than theyre getting.

  • A superb set of images showing a real connection with the subjects in many cases. A master class in the art of b&w.

  • Nice range of very good shots, especially the portraits

  • Love your pf, - you have a terrific eye for a shot.

  • Moira, I just LOVE the Dublin series, - as a part Irish person you will understand how your journey, so well documented in this series really resonates with a person born and raised there, as I am.


  • Beautiful set of landscapes, well done.

  • I like your new PF pic Vic.

  • Very nice portfolio
