    Thanks for all of the comments.

    Morgs, if I had moved to the right there would be a lovely telegraph pole in shot, so I had to make do with what I had, but good point though. I will see about lightening the foreground, but as it was getting dark at the time and I think making it lighter might look a bit fake.

    Cheers, Nick

    Hi, this has the potential to be a nice photo with a reasonable conposition, but the foreground is underexposed and parts of the sky are overexposed. The photo could have been much better if you had used a graduated neutral density filter to balance the exposure of the sky/land. There's plenty of info on this site regarding ND grads. This would have made you able to see the jetty and would have given the sky more texture and better colour. Hope this helps. Nick

  • Harju in Fall

    Hi Soundphobic,
    I don't know where Harju is, but it certainly looks beatiful. I think there are a number of things that could be done to make the photo better. Firstly, the horizon isn't straight, so that needs straightening. Secondly the branch in the top left corner I think distracts the eye. Branches like that can frame a photo, but you need to have more of it up the side of the photo, otherwise it looks like it accidently crept in. Thirdly, I think the sky is overexposed and the foreground underexposed - you should try using neutral density graduated filters to try to balance the exposure - there is good guidance how to do this on this website. Finally, I think a lower viewpoint would have helped the composition. If you look at all of the good landscape photographson this website, the vast majority all have some sort of foreground interest to lead the eye in.
    Hope this helps,
    Nick

    Thanks for the comments.

    You are right Charles - its not straight. I think it looks worse now as I have added a black frame - it wasn't so noticable when I didn't have a frame. I will get it fixed.
    Cheers

    Thanks for all of your comments - I will remove the bit of red.

    Steve, the photo was taken at last weekends Bristol Volksfest, during a brief break in between the showers.

    Hi, this seems to be a really nice holiday snap. Its a shame the photo does not extend downwards as it appears that the bottom of the stand has been chopped off. Also, it might be better is the interiour of the shop/shop sign was brightened a bit.

  • I love your portfolio. You seem to have the knack of taking brilliant photos in very ordinary situations, which in my opinion is the sign of a really great photographer.
