A quick view of banehawi's recent activity.

  • The Ford

    Many of us less dedicates shooters are not out and about during thew golden hours. So we shoot other subjects, or as you suggest, details within a landscape.


    This is decent; it can be severely cropped as in the mod to simply remove most of the offending bright areas.

    If you want those areas to be exposed for detail, you have to take more than one shot; the single shot gives you an average exposure, too bright whites, and too dark darks.

    Bracketing exposures, a function you camera can do, - best with a tripod, is one way to go; ytou get three versios of you image exposed at different settings, which otu choose; then you can combine the best of each on into a single image in a photo editor.

    Think about purchasing a graduated polariser if you are out a lot in daylight, it will give you more intense colours, and reduce reflections and glare.

    Anyway, take a look at the mod.

    Regards

    Hi Alexandra. Welcome to EPZ, and also to this corner of the site, the Critique Gallery. Posting here means that you are looking for feedback to improve your photography overall, and are interested in knowing more about how to use tor camera, and what it can do.
    The Critique team encourage a two way dialogue, so if you need more information or help, comment back; if you dont understand something, also add a comment, and if you find something helpful, let us know also.

    The General gallery is where you post to get votes, perhaps awards, once you enable voting, and you may also get some good feedback. Im certain this image would win a lot of votes and perhaps awards.

    It really doesnt get a lot better than this image; it tells the story of drought beautifully.

    I dont know if you used a tripod or support, - the shutter is a little slow for the focal length, but it has had little impact on the shots meaning, or intent. The Elephant may have moved slightly, but a little sharpening helps. I would stay closer to 1/250 or above just in case of subject movement, even if the lens is stabilised.

    The Elephant is perfectly placed in the frame, and the low saturation contributes to the overall dry impression.

    I tried two modifications that mainly address sharpening, some shadows and highlight retrieval, and a sepia version. Click the Modifications button under the image to see mods.


    Excellent overall; enjoy the site.


    Regards

    Yes, impressionistic, and maybe a mod can make it more so. It can also be a bit too much champagne...

  • 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.
