And you have captured the anouver very well. The only problem for me is aboythalf to one stop nder exposure. The cloud of light dust has effected the meter reading I think. Just brighten things up a bit and you have a fine shot.
I don't mind your tight crop, but you are either under exposed or your mono conversion is astray, or bothe. There is no true black anywhere resulting in a flat greyish image. you need impact and contrast for a shot like this if you use mono.
I met Vic Blackman a couple of times and he was a fine photographer. He said it honestly and down to earth. anyone wshing to progress to a sei pro or pro environment MUST master their gear. i fear many don't think it necessary in these days of digital.
The blur is a major error. I look at the blurred area rather than the face because it is obviously not natural. The head is sharp and well shown so no need to muck about. I would come in even tighter on the head, correct the magenta cast and get a correct title.
Both John and Willie hit the valid points. You should not be setting such a high ISO in full sun lit daylight and f5.6 would cover focusing errors a little. You are under exposed and the highlights will stand a little more light.
An impressive thing but I'm really not sure about mono for such a natural history related subject. Your ono conversion seems very heavy to me. Possibly due to the lack of a wide colour gamut, but I would expect blues and blue greys.
The basis isgoo but that black line has to go. As John says, for elegant glaour a white background to the point of over exosing it and possibly a No. 1 diffuser on caera. When you finish the selection, remove any blackor white matts within the layer tool.
Potntially a fine record, but that is hat it is, natural history record and the subject must thus be pin sharp. It is quite soft and whilst that is OK for general purpose,it precludes use as a pure record.
This is a little better, but the comment remains the same. You are a little under exposed and there is quite a degree of softness. I suspect both camera movement and subject movement and ambient has intensified that.
Depends on your business. Interesting shot of two very old Range Rovers. The price of parts can be astronomical! Quite yellow but the evening lighting is the cause an it isqite acceptable.
One at a time is best. They are all different requiringdifferent comment which can get confusing.
I often want a subject and you gave me one here! Not a bad effort in very difficult cicmstances. HDR would not help. It flattensimags, but only the sun is toobright and you will not put any detail back into that!
Not a bad shot. Nothing t say he is a magician and the title might b better angled to the audience, but not really important. might have tried to get a bit to the right keeping the two mebers of the audience in, but including more of the performers face frontally.
Good shot. Getting in really close improves impact and there is no problem trimin the petals. You would expect under exposure on auto here and you have handled it well.
Could be very nice, but I do mind the lack of sharpness. The faces need to be pin sharp and your shutter speed is too low for the focal length. There is o plane of sharpness and you havecamera shake. You could have gone to 400 or even 800 as sharpness is bette thn grain..
Not a bad effort. The head is slightly soft, but there is much less of a focus issue. The sky makes this very grey and flatand, as Willie explains, you are under exposed.
Amusing and interestin. The crowd is the problem. Reasonably sharp and thusdistracting. Try some at full aperture, a bit frther away if possible to reduce depth of field by then zooming in, but probably not practical.
A tripod do not prevent subject movement and I suspect that is what we have here as nothin is sharp. You need better lighting and thus a faster shutter speed. Increasing ISO will help, but the lower the etter for quality.
Yes, oats or a similar grass. V1 is best. Too much going on in v2 and lighting not suitable in 3. Filling the frae with detail gives impact. I think I would have gone for f4 or even 5.6. The background would have been a tad sharper but the depth of field on the subject a bit better.
You hav tocrack this focus issue. You are getting some potentially fine images now but rining them with blur. Sorry to be abrupt, but there is a srious issue. The hair on the right is quite sharp, the hair at the top is reaonable and the zip lookssharp but the face is way off.
