"Thank you Robert - I think you have hit the nail on the head in regard to the light meter - in fact I've been looking at the Sekonic range. I took the original shot too hurriedly just before leaving the location. Still, I shall persevere to see…"

"This version is better but without seeing the original camera file, it's difficult to say what one should or should not do to improve this, personally I feel that this image could have been inproved upon prior to the release of the…"

"Robert, if you have time, I would appreciate your further guidance. Having considered all the comments and suggestions, I decided I really don't want a tighter crop. I've tried to go with the natural direction of the light (as on the front…"

"A strong picture provides an interesting organization of elements; shows order in a messy world.  It's like the difference between a successful joke and random text.  In photography what you keep out of the frame is often as important…"

"Its easy enough to desaturate the sky, I just usually like them blue so I added some blue.  I use Photoshop CC with Topaz Clarity plugin.  "

"Thanks for your suggestion Gary, I too think there's potential in the image. At the moment I'm going to follow it through here if the guys stay with me, but I'll keep your 1X.com suggestion in mind."

"Ron, thanks for your input. The beach change is much better, and I might go with the cliffs as well. I'm not keen on the sky though, which is losing the intended evening feel. What programme did you make the changes in please? "

"OK, I see that mirroring helps to detach it in the mind's eye. Personally, having settled for the crop, I'd have reversed back, but that's just a personal preference. I'm still not sure whether to crop though. I think I want the…"

Anon A. Mouse replied to David Fisher's discussion Misty Evening in the group Photo Criticism
"I mirrored it mostly to discourage it being seen just as a part of the original image. Also I think it "reads" better that way. (It's often helpful when trying to see / understand a picture's design or composition to look at it…"

"I am liking this image more and more, it has lots of potential, not sure the new blue sky in this one suits the tones? I suggest uploading this on 1X.com in the critique section, there are resident experts in this field that will possibly share with…"

Ron replied to David Fisher's discussion Misty Evening in the group Photo Criticism
"Given the criticism here I thought I would post my version which still shows the whole scene while enhancing the dramatic effect.  The peaceful beach scene has a counterpoint on the right with the road, bath houses and green hillside.…"

David Fisher replied to David Fisher's discussion Misty Evening in the group Photo Criticism
"Yes, that's something I did try - why the flip though? Certainly the result of cropping is to make a different image that's probably easier on the eye, but one that doesn't relate to the location as well. Maybe that was my problem,…"

Wind Surfer for Critique

Posted on December 31, 2013 at 12:49pm 16 Comments

Feel free to crit as you see fit - my pp skills are limited and, whilst happy with the subject, composition and general image, the blue in the waves bothers me, but changing white balance seems to spoil the overall look. Can I do something in either Elements or Lightroom to improve things?…

Although there's really no particular focal point to this, I rather like the overall effect - do you think it works?

Most professionals shooting from planes or helicopters remove the door so they are not shooting through a window.  They remove the lens hood to prevent the wind from buffeting it and causing camera movement.   They also take multiple bodies so they don't have to change lenses and expose the inside of their cameras to the wind.

Most of my photos still have the EXIF data attached.  If a file was Saved for Web the data is stripped.  If you view the image full size, you can use an EXIF viewer to see the data.  I usually just right click and save the file to my machine then look at it with Photoshop or Bridge.  I added a comment about the settings for the plane to that photo.
