A quick view of banehawi's recent activity.

  • Judge Rinder at Porthleven!

    Set the time on the camera!

    Difficult conditions where the dynamic range is beyond the capabilities of the camera; you really have to choose whats most important, the surfer or the wave, and looking at this and your recent uploads, its always the wave that wins. The surfer ends up underexposed, so post processing is the way to lift the exposure in that area alone, without making it look like a cartoon.

    I would stay away from spot metering for this, and use the default, adjusting bu adding a +2/3 or so for exposure.

  • Patterns

    For the theme they are both equal I would think.

    I personally prefer the version, it a simpler notion of repeating patterns; it has a shallow depth of field, so maybe a smakker aperture could improve it. The priginal has a load of colour that can overpower the idea if the repeating patterns.

    The original looks better with the exposure increased, and the right side a bit sharper, which Ive done in a mod.

    Its a good effort. Adding +1 was a good decision for exposure.

    I wonder if you were using the AF Servo mode for this to track the subject, - if not, try it next time.

    Needs a little more sharpening, and in the mod Ive altered the crop as well as sharpening.

    Good timing.

    A little brighter perhaps.

  • The wreck

    Like Paul, a little brighter, and better with all of the front of the boat.

    I thihnk you need to have 3 perfect forks, all straight, as if new. I dont think I would have noticed this if I had been taking the shot, so its a lesson learned.

    Not sure I understand the second point about starting from the corners?

    Either way its well done

    A nice shot. Better if you could have some more room om the right, but well dome to squeeze it all in.

    A little underexposed and contrasty for me.

    Loaded mod.

  • 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
