A quick view of banehawi's recent activity.

  • Portland Bill Lighthouse

    Its a decent effort.

    The sea is in the shot so use it a a reference for level.

    You exposed for the brightest objects, its close; the mod is exposed for the darker subjects. so it looks lighter. The the sea is level.

  • Stackhouse Warming Hut made out ICE

    This is Winnipeg, Manitoba.

    Its unique in that ice from the river thats flowing behind forms the building materials.

    For me.too cool in tone, and rather too bright where the subject is.

    Ive uploaded a mod thats a little warmer overall, highlights toned down, and moe contrast applied to the warming house.

  • Determined!

    No exif means we have less to go on to provide feedback.

    Less saturated would suit better, with increased exposure, and enhance that catch-light in the eye. Try to get the light area around the eye as white as possible.

    Tighter crop, and even perhaps a mono!

  • Sterling in Tanzania

    Lovely colourful bird.

    Its a little underexposed, likely neded a positive EC as its relatuely dark against a brighter background.

    Im guessing that lens is also fully open, so stopping down a stop with increase the dof. I looks to me that the point of focus is a tiny bit closer to the camera that idea; that front leg, and the greenery its standing on are wuite sharp. So smaller aperture with higher ISO would give more latitude.

    The exif shows the bird is 8.3 meters away.

    Ive loaded a mod that god exposure increased, and is slightly sharpened, The observations I mentioned are borne out by the fact its only the areas Ive mentioned that respond at all to sharpening. The eye doesnt respond. All this assumes a ttripod or solid supprt, if only for the weight of you gear.

  • Aussie Portrait

    Not quite sharp, and having the exif data would help with feedback. Its a great subject, terrific expression and well composed.

    I also uploaded a mod

  • The South Bank

    The urban jungle at its best.

    Wider lens or standing further back, or even getting closer for a shot of one of the pieces are all viable approaches.

    Subjects like this, for me need to be gritty and high contrast, and mod 1 has that done, Mod 2 is a mono, toned that you may like,

    Getting to grips with LR is a challenge when you are expecting it to work like PS, and letting go of this expectation is a good start.

    If you have specific questions about LR just ask, and I can do my best to help.

  • Flamborough Head Lighthouse

    If your main subject is the sky and clouds, meter for that, which would mean a reduces exposure.

    If you want both, use bracketed exposure and combine in post processing.

    Mod loaded that contains the colour of the usual red/yellow sun.

  • 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
