CathR

Welcome. I hope you enjoy my photos. They are a bit of a mixture but reflect my main interests - flowers and landscapes (and those animals which are easy to photo).

A quick view of CathR's recent activity.

  • moon

    Sure, the moon moves but not at a speed which requires a high shutter speed. Even 1/1000 is way too fast. 1/125 should be enough. You should aim to get your ISO down to 100.

    When I am doing my Milky Way photography we expose for 30 secs!

  • "Sonia"

    It doesn't shriek "composite" at me at first but then when I think about it a bit I can see it is. You have a very strong directional light in the background which isn't matched by the light falling on Sonia. The light is very blue - again no sign of that on Sonia - her skin tones are very warm. Also you have managed to pull off the fact that she is sitting on top of the water!Wink I wouldn't put that key line inside the frame as it interferes with her hand etc. It could be a promotional shot for travel to India & the Taj Mahal Smile

  • Defending the Land

    Thanks all. I wasn't sure about the dawg either but there seemed to be a great big space on the left which needed something to fill it.

    Anyway, thanks for your comments.

  • Bridge Over Troubled Water

    Yes, good composition. You need to darken the top right corner though which is lighter than the rest of the pic. This will hold the viewer's attention on the main action of the waterfall, fence etc.

    Mod attached.

  • Dusk at Ferry Meadows

    A moody shot John with the dramatic sky and the strong trees. For me all the action is in that top part of the photo. I find the teasles a bit of a distraction. I can see why you wanted some foreground interest but even so you have a large expanse of water to the left with not a lot going on.

    I think you have got two shots here - one focussing on the sunset and the trees. You might have to crop it to cut out some of the foreground water unless you can get closer. The other focussing on the teasels, making them bigger in the frame and having the sunset as a back drop. You would have to make sure though that the teasels do not get tangled up in the trees. I'm not sure it works by putting the two focal points together. But lovely mood.

    Best wishes
