After the Rain

By jasonrwl
Thank you all for your C&C's on yesterday's spider image.

Just a simple rose from our garden today taken just after a shower - a shower of rain that is - not just after I had a shower GrinGrin

Thanks for looking

Quite nice but slightly mixed feelings with regards to depth of field and corresponding sharpness plane. There is a lot of drops there, some very sharp, sone not, but no compositional shape. I would prefer a dominent area of extreme sharpness, with all the remainder at various degrees of softness.

The centre of the bloom being unsharp also pulls the eye.

A lovely delicacy to parts of this image, along with good highlights in the droplets. I find that my eye naturally gravitates to the out of focus centre of the flower away from the areas where I would want it to. I have tried cropping but have not achieved a satisfactory result. The same technique with a different composition could yield a stunning result.

Thanks for your critique on my Fulmar image.

Its very good. You have exactly what you wanted, the petals and the drops, in nice detail.

What it does need to get it where it needs to be is additional exposure; its a little under, and it makes a considerable difference when its increased a little, - see mod.

Beware that when in Manual mode, its not likely that using exposure compensation actually does anything apart from showing it on an indicator, as you control all the other variables. So in M mode, use the meter to push the exposure up, using wither aperture, shutter or ISO
