Cool poser

Cool poserNo 2 for me,the first is a bit of a snapshot.
The second is a lot more creative and works a lot better for it.

ISO 800 ? Although todays digitals don`t show much noise its always best to keep the ISO as low as possible unless trying to be creative.
f5.6 @ 1/320th sec ???

How about Iso 200 f11 @1/125th ???
Your not trying to throw out the background so f11 being mid ground and 1/125th would be enough to freeze the shot

Saying that you`ve exposed well theres no noise and no movment, just passing on what i `ve bee taught.
Nice portpholio a collection of nice uncomplicated well taken images.

Hope this helps

The First Day Of Snow :)

The First Day Of Snow :)Nice image and you`ve captured the snow well.
Try one tree isolating the others or get in close to a snow swept trunk.
As it is your image works but there is no center of focus and no lead through.
Very good attempt keep postingSmile

Tree Trunk

Tree TrunkNice texture and diagonals
Not sure on your choise of lens ? Try using something a bit less "wide" around 70-100mm . Find an actual point to focus on and use spot metering. Try differant stops to create differant versions 2.8 to start ,8 and a 16 ((Depending on lens ) Use the same point of focus on all and use a tripod.Use manual setting adusting exposure to math apeture.
Hope this helps

Eggborough Sunset

Eggborough SunsetH`mm
Composition is spot on,thirds all the way,power station just off center.
Exposure--depends what your after.This works fine and its a good "as is" shot. A longer exposure would give you more light ppossibly bringing out the yellows in the field.This would also "stretch the clouds" which a lot of people like.
To keep the clouds as is a NG filter might be used to bring down the light from the sky allowing to balance the flowers--or my prefered methord, take your meter reading from the sky,then from the field then meet half way .
Focus about a 1/3 into image and set to area focus.(always use manual focus on camera and lens)
My way isn`t neccesarilly correct,just the way i do it,works for meSmile

Damsel Fly

Damsel FlyGood depth of field in the image.Nice detail in body and legs however a little blown out on the leaves.
I find the image a bit flat on full frame almost like a tight crop,however it has a lot of merit in the detail .
A Monopod is a must for these shots to keep them pin sharp.Some people take several shots at diferant focus points,stack the images and then rub out the any soft areas. Maybe a slightly longer lens might help (we can`t own the whole range so well do for maxamising your 150mm)
Hope this helps and still well worthy of a click

Milky Groynes

Milky GroynesAhhh here we go again,how to put my big foot right in it.
Composition is spot on,
Shutter speed spot on,
I like the one post breaking the minimal horizon
Colours---imho---and that don`t count for much--are a little too strong (Bending a bit towards chocolate box and the viewer)

Mute the colour down and i`d give it two votes!

The Gate 2

The Gate 2Nice classical framing.Nice shot.
I may of prefered the camera to be a tad over to the left so as to use the gate as a lead in,allowing more of the field(and light) to be in view.As it is the image stops at the gate and then picks up again at the clouds.
Hope this helps.
