Living with Eagles

Living with Eagles by BURNBLUE

This is really a stunning image, there's a lot to like and nothing not to like. The size of the eagle compared to the boy, his clothes, the background, his expression make this a fascinating photo.

I used to live not far from Mongolia. Unless you were on some sort of specialist tourist trip, you must have traveled hard and far to find and document these people, which must have been a great journey. If you only came home with the memories and this photo, I think the journey would have been more than worth it. The series on these hunters, as a whole, is probably one of the best records of the eagle hunters I've ever seen, but this shot really does it for me.

Passing Smile

Nicely framed, this portrait has that real 'looking straight at you' feel that makes you feel like you are being watched through the photograph.

Gambian Villager

Gambian Villager by stevewlb

Incredible portrait. Not just the eyes, but the skin also, which is incredibly sharp and shows a prominent scar under the eye, a telling kind of detail.

I really am in awe of the portraiture on your portfolio, I think its incredible. However if there's one thing I'd really like to see in your portfolio, it would be a few more shots with a deeper depth of field which give an impression of the living conditions / background of the people you are shooting. This is purely from a personal interest point of view. You called the picture 'Gambian villager', so I'd love to see where and how these people are living and get a feel of their lifestyle from the photographs. Do they collect water in buckets? Have groundwater pumps? Use oxen? Fish? Eat rice/yams/meat? Your portfolio has me interested, and I want the photos to tell me more about them!

Geese In The Bay

Geese In The Bay by photowanderer

Quote: For example; should I have increased the exposure compensation to burn out the background and render the geese better?

No! Part of the charm of this image is the lovely color set.

Quote: or do the opposite and silhouette the geese.

No! Something has to be against a considerably brighter background for it to be a 'silhouette'. Decreasing the exposure would simply make the geese and the water darker.

I think the exposure was handled well here.

I'm not sure I quite understand how you took this shot. It obviously wasn't at night (no lights!), but how did you manage 120 seconds without it burning out? ND filter?

I think its a great shot, the long exposure has flattened the water and sky which makes the building stand out. Just curious as to how it worked?

The perfect summary of the last 3 years of government in our country Wink

Vote for the photo. Really good candid. The title made me groan though!

Wow. That really is a powerful sea. Well captured.

All Together All Alone

All Together All Alone by WeeGeordieLass

I really like this shot. I like the colour version much better, I find the different colours of the clothing and skin tones interesting, and there's nothing distracting at ll about the colour of the background.

Personally, I prefer to use autoiso when travelling, that way you can leave it set to 400 and it'll only go up if and when you need it. If I do manually set it (which I often do when carefully composing a shot), I always put auto back on straight away and out the camera in program mode in case of grab shots like this when you don't have the time to adjust. My logic is - if you have the time to adjust then you can do Smile Not everyone likes auto iso, but it works for me.

My D90 also has a very handy 'reset' function - you press two buttons with green dots above them, and it resets to auto wb, auto ISO, matrix metering etc (detailed menu settings remain unaffected). I use this resetting immediately after every time I do any manual adjustments and its a great habit to get into. I'm sure the D3100 has something similar, just in case you haven't discovered this feature yet (it took me six months to realize it was there).

Great landscape. Definite vote!

Nice. Nicely lit scene and great colours

Mood Of Torridon

Mood Of Torridon by Bravdo

Wow! What an incredible view. The road and the position of the sun through the gap in the mountains really gives the composition a sense of depth and vast distance. As a landscape, I really admire it.

Maroon Bells Milky Way

Maroon Bells Milky Way by TomCuccio

Incredible picture. The exposure is just right for the valley and mountains as well as the sky. GREAT detail in the night sky.

Really nice image with a strong mood attached to it. The clouds really do create a nice frame.

Unfortunately, I'd need a 30" monitor to view the whole thing in HQ Sad !
