  • The Mangle Fandangle at an Angle

    Just love old stuff like this, like most photographers.

    The mod I cropped the right hand side and removed the things that draw the eye away from the subject. Hope you like it...

  • Low sun

    This reminds of Dungerness which is local to me. Loved the way you have used the shadows and kept yourself in the image.

    I have uploaded two mods I have added a little to the top and of course the missing seagulls. I have added these as shadows to keep with the subject. The black and white I want nice and crisp to make it pop (AA has a lot to answer for...).

  • Green Leaves

    Like most things the modern camera has so many things in the menus I can understand the problems getting a grip with them. In many ways learning photography with the old film cameras was much better. No auto anything, the ISO was set on the film box and all you had to understand was speed v's aperture. This also help to fully understand aperture with DOF.
    Today most cameras come with a light meter bar in the display, so why not set the camera to manual and go in the garden and play with the speed and aperture using the bar in the viewfinder. Good luck...

  • Durdle Door

    A place I know well and no matter how many times you see it the beauty just jumps out.

    The minor adjustments Willie has done really adds to the image by opening up the shadows.

  • Cliffs

    I can understand the beauty of this shot we means even more to you. The only problem with these shots are the lack of subject for the eye to focus on. Given that I would rather be there than sitting in front of a screen.

    In the mod I have darkened down and given the cliffs a little more detail. I have also added a few gulls to draw the eye. Also the image a few camera sensor marks and may need keeping an eye on if you don't do post processing.

  • Bench

    Hi and welcome.

    Willie has covered the tech stuff above so I will look at the image itself. Loving Crete myself I can understand you wanting to shot everything and in this image I think you have been caught between two subject matters the house and the bench. This I feel ends up doing neither subjects justice. The bench ends up being pulled out of the image but still effecting the door and windows of the house. Both can be shot together but you need to find the right angle. As you say your new to photography it may be best to try to stick to one main subject, this will allow you to look around the background quickly to see the things you don't want in the image. A few seconds looking more at what we shoot makes all the difference.
    Good luck and look forward to seeing more of your work...

  • Hi Stephen
    Great shot with those wonderful eyes. Two things with portraits that I have found, are avoid hands near the face. Very hard to great right and a little edge darkening helps to draw the eye to the face.

  • Hi Darren
    Looking over your work after seeing the picture of your wife. All I can say it's a real knock out. Your images are stunning and it's been a long time since I have seen a collection of work at such a high standard. Look forward to seeing more of art in the future.
