A quick view of RipleyExile's recent activity.

  • raindrops

    The droplets and reflection in them are very well caught. The only thing I would like different would be for you to move a bit to the left, or right, so that the background is one colour and not split down the middle.

    Well shot. Would probably chop off 75% off the green foreground at the bottom.

  • Men Drivers!!

    When you say men do you really mean teenage boys (who we all know some can't control themselves never mind a car)?

    It is a rather dull and flat image. Once you've put the 3 images together and tone mapped it, go into levels or curves (depending on your preference) and adjust the settings to improve the contrast.

    Also, you need to sort out the verticals as they are leaning inwards at the edges of the image (most notably the outside edges of the towers). There is a touch of chromatic aberation as well on the edges of the building. This is thin cyan lines down the left sides and red down the right and is more noticable on the left tower and tree. This is caused by the lens when a dark area in the image meets a light area. Some lenses cope better than others with avoiding it.

    The verticals and CA can be sorted using the lens correction filter in Photoshop (if you have a version of PS with that filter) Filters>Distort>Lens Correction. If you don't have lens correction then there are tutorials on Epz that address all these issues.

    I much prefer the 2nd shot with the bus travelling away from you. There are less areas of darkness and the colours reflected off the wet road work really well. Maybe taken from the other side of the street as there seem to be more interesting shop fronts on the side where you are stood although the bus is well placed in the image. I do find the bright sign on the left edge a bit distracting as it is against a dark building and draws the eye to the edge of the image. Maybe you could get a couple of people on the street corner in front of the yellow window.

    I feel the first shot isn't as colourful (especially the left half) and the reflections don't work as well. There is good movement in the bus, but I just feels the second image has more impact and works better.

    A slighlty bigger depth of field would ensure that the end of the abdomen, the hairs on the abdomen and thorax and forward legs are sharp. I also feel that the image has been cropped to tight on the top left and bottom as the sides are too close to the head wings and legs.

    It's a real shame it hasn't got it's tail sticking up, but this is a really good shot. I like the dappled background and the squirrel is spot on.

  • Awsome portfolio. It's such a wonderful concentration of great images you've put together.
  • There are alot of fantastic images in your p/f. I am very envious. I was going to comment on your images, but realised there were too many. Many images exhibiting great detail, compositions and colours.
