A quick view of mattw's recent activity.

  • Bright Spark

    Well seen, the water droplets make a fantastic subject. Well focused, and nice clean background too!

    Wow thanks Ava (that must be the quickest award I have ever received!)

  • an ogmore sunset

    Weather/sunsets can drive us mad!

    Nice timing with the wave breaking over the foreground rock. Good use of shutter speed too, to add that movement without overcooking it.

    If I may make one suggestion however, the shadow areas are a little 'heavy'. If you are going for the 'dark and moody' feeling then fine. However I wonder if lifting these areas a little may help?

    (Thank you for the UA on my shot from Monday)

    thanks for the comments everyone.

    Eye catching, hope you kept your feet dry.

    Yes, kept the feet dry (just)

    Quote:My only slight critism is the large dark rock/hill to the right of the image is a little distracting

    I fully agree Ben. It is quite frankly, incompetent usage of the grad filter (and yes, I have done a lot of remedial work in this area in post). I can say that it was a difficult spot to crouch and balance, and keep camera & self dry - and I could not quite see what the camera was doing.... but in truth I messed it up.

  • Hello Chris,

    You have some prommising work in your Portfolio, of which you should be rightly proud. I wish you lots of enjoyment and luck in your photographic journey.

    You asked me about the Tamron 17-35mm lens. I have found this lens to execlent value for money, and a very good alternitive to the Canon 17-40 F4L if you can't quite afford the Canon. The improvement is quality over the kit lens should be very apparent.

    From some of your descriptions, I am not sure if you have a tripod or not. If you do not have ne, then I cannot recomend enouph that you buy one asap.
