Off-loading cargo into wagons

Off-loading cargo into wagons by Focus_Man

Not much to add, bar trying it in black and white.


general by shydallah

It's not bad but it is a little bland - I would make two changes;

1. Ramp up the contrast. This is a rather flat image with little colour, upping the contrast would help make details stand out a bit more and make the image "pop"

2. Either make it black and white or else ramp up the colours. As there is little colour in the shot, you could consider converting it to black and white. Alternatively, if you increase the saturation, you may find hitherto hidden colour tones jump out and really liven the shot up. See which works best.


Test! by Leighton22

The biggest problem here is the three bits of stuff in the corners which lead the eye out to the edge of the picture and away from the subjects. I would have cropped them out.

Then your sunball has either caused lens flare or else you've got several bits of dust on your lens as you've got several "circles of confusion" dotted around it. The clouds probably aren't enough of an interest point to carry this image either I'm afraid. I would re-take with a better cloud formation.

A happy walk

I think your 1/125 is ok as with many action shots you do want to show a little blur in the fastest moving bits of the animal - the legs - just to show it is actually moving. I think the blur you have is more of a focus thing. I would severaly crop this image - action shots often benefit from a close crop to get the viewer "into the action" and I would also advocate a lower viewpoint - it would be a lot more dramatic to have a "dog's eye view" where the mutt can dominate the picture - far more dramatic!

Personally, I would have used your widest angle and got down as low as possible. This anchor is an enormous and imposing thing - getting right down and shooting up at it would have made it really loom over the viewer. Bearing in mind the lack of actual colour in it, I'd also have opted for black and white, that would really have given it punch. The family in the background, in my humble opinion, detract from the image quite a bit. A lower viewpoint would have eradicated them. Ultimately you have to decide what you're photographing - the anchor or the people? Pick a subject, and then work with that subject in a way that suits it best. Less is usually better. Simplicity usually gives more impressive shots.

All just my opinion, of course...Wink
