a cold road to nowhere

a cold road to nowhere by pjplant

i like the way this has been proccessed. It sets the mood right Smile, i would have preferred to go for a lower perspective though when taking this..but thats just me Smile

Queuing for the Temple

Queuing for the Temple by WeeGeordieLass

Yes we Indians are typically not too fussed about camera's pointing at us...Wink...I can imagine though that a place like Varanasi can be quite chaotic and at the same time be very colorful Smile

I quite like this shot, i think it works pretty well just the way it is, these are 4 very interesting personalities but the way they are lined up gives the shot the impact and from my perspective it really doesnt matter if they are not all looking into the camera, on the other hand their expressions create curiosity for me in terms of what they are all looking at...on the image itself i think with a few minor tweaks this is definitely a keeper. The background doesnt bother me too i think the words LG in the backdrop of what are tribal natives creates quite a contrast

1) I would clone out the guy in the background
2) I would tone down the saturation a bit
3) I think this would make for a very interesting mono as well Smile

Have done two mods illustrating the above....hope this helps

Morning in Pangandaran

Morning in Pangandaran by arhab

A very restfull scene Smile i like the way the boats are arranged in a line and the color in the sky overall just a few things i would correct:-

1) The image looks very noisy....have tried to reduce it in the mod but the output is not very good largely due to the uploaded images lo res so the sky looks a lot softer than i would prefer
2) As it stands right now i think the sky and boats compete for attention, in the mod i have cropped a bit from the top to bring balance.
3) The image right now looks a little flat and could do with contrast especially to bring out the sky better, in the mod i have attempted this

While i havent done this in the mod you may also want to try cloning out the boat in the middle to see if it improves the shot Smile

Hope this helps, i i think if you try the above on the original image this would carry a lot of impact


Childhood by b_chat

iam a little unsure if this works com positionally for me....while it creates curiosity on what the kids are focusing on in that little group i feel the lack of any of their faces / expressions in the shot take away some of the impact, again this is purely subjective and others might see it differently Smile i would probably have worked to get a angle where i could capture the story of them playing in the sand box and also capture the expressions while they do it. lastly on the shot itself it has a soft feel to it overall not sure if thats due to an upload thingy or if the original was like that.....

Cheers and hope this helps

Neon jelly fish

Neon jelly fish by Robinsons

I dont have an answer to your question but did google for it. Check out the you tube video below may give you some answers Smile http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=r1Sdyqcn8FI&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dr1Sdyq...

But I quite like this shot as well, iam on my iPad but it looks nice and sharp with the other two nicely blurred out in the background giving prominence to the one in front ....

Universal Studio Singapore

Universal Studio Singapore by shahmastan

Its a nice idea, but i feel the composition is a little unbalanced from the point that the building becomes the primary element competing for attention against the model, which you only notice in the overall scheme of things later...like Paul says there is also the issue of overexposure on the top right which immediately draws the eye. Have done a mod where i have cropped down from the top to sort of balance the image and give the model a bit more prominence...i couldnt be sure but there also seems to be a greenish cast to the image, have tried to correct that in the mod. The model doesnt seem as sharp though as the rest of the building could be due to the lo-res image uploaded.

Hope this helps.

sun rise in the vaal(south africa)

sun rise in the vaal(south africa) by nortier

South African sunsets are some of the most beautiful ive ever seen, but iam afraid this doesnt do much justice to them Smile. And i think the prime reason for this is the camera used, the sheer range of a sunset i would imagine would be beyond that of a Nokia Asha cell phone's capabilities Smile

Yellow Maple Leaves All Over The Place

Yellow Maple Leaves All Over The Place by Adityagrt

Technically captured well..but the image lacks a focal point something to anchor down the interest, something which holds the eye when you look at the image ....
