David Fisher replied to Vahid Farshadfar's discussion I would appreciate all your comments on this photo . in the group Photo Criticism
"Hmm, I'm sure you could do a lot to improve this with a bit of pp. Although the subject isn't terribly exciting, it is a brave photographer that crops (either in the taking or later) to just a reflection - the classic example is a…"

David Fisher replied to melony's discussion How can I improve these bird photos? in the group Photo Criticism
"A much better composition now Melony, given the original could have done with more room to the right. The bird is now a bit 'bullseyed', but much improved on the first post. Just exposure to sort now! Nor sure how far you can get with pp…"

David Fisher replied to melony's discussion How can I improve these bird photos? in the group Photo Criticism
"Hi Melony, You will get more response if you post the shots on this page - you need to click on the image icon in the top bar. By now, I've forgotten what #1 looked like(!), I love the bird in #2, although it could do with brightening-up a…"

David Fisher replied to Jeniver Agbayani's discussion structure in the group Photo Criticism
"I think the lighting has let you down on this one - it looks like evening sunshine and the shadows are simply in the wrong place. Perhaps early morning would position the sun better and give the contrast necessary to show the interesting form…"

David Fisher replied to Francisco Javier Camacho's discussion Village children in the group Photo Criticism
"Glad you re-posted - what a great response you've had! My very first thought was what a superb catch, all these street urchins looking totally relaxed about the camera and acting perfectly naturally. Second thought, shame you were just a tad…"

David Fisher replied to Francisco Javier Camacho's discussion Village children in the group Photo Criticism
"Love the image, but it needs to be here, as Robert asks - to do that click on the image icon, it's the second from the left next to the link icon."

David Fisher replied to Wayne Crichlow's discussion City scenes and urban fragments in the group Photo Criticism
"Thank you for the opportunity Wayne, so good to have a sensible debate, and nurtured by a very worthwhile post - I'm guessing you're sticking with the b&w version! Look forward to seeing more from you, I particularly like the way you…"

David Fisher replied to Wayne Crichlow's discussion City scenes and urban fragments in the group Photo Criticism
"I take your point(s) Robert but, this being a critique group, I guess Wayne does not expect everyone to agree with his own view - indeed, that in part is the reason people ask for critique - in order to have an understanding of how people see their…"

David Fisher replied to Wayne Crichlow's discussion City scenes and urban fragments in the group Photo Criticism
"Well, for once, I've got to disagree with Robert - for me, colour is what this shot will always need - the murals are the subject - the cobbles add interest, and the walls/fences, in their own right, offer little with the exception of the…"

David Fisher replied to Wayne Crichlow's discussion City scenes and urban fragments in the group Photo Criticism
"I've followed you on this forum and another and have real respect your work Wayne, but I think you have got the murals shot wrong. B&W is good for texture, but the murals don't offer texture - you needed to find another cobbled street…"

David Fisher replied to CC's discussion Thoughts? Not sure how I feel about it. in the group Photo Criticism
"Ah, well, now we know the connection! Probably best left alone as it belongs to somebody else - or perhaps you could have asked is you could re-arrange things a bit, but that's not always easy."

David Fisher replied to CC's discussion Thoughts? Not sure how I feel about it. in the group Photo Criticism
"The skull has to be used more effectively, taking 'centre stage' even if not placed there! As shot the feeling the image gives is one of jumble. Lots of potential, just needs sorting, but be careful when selecting components, what…"

David Fisher replied to Prabhuclicks's discussion Please give your suggestion My spider close up photo in the group Photo Criticism
"Your post has lead to an interesting and fundamentally important discussion, but you may feel things have digressed from what you expected! My best advice - look at respondents personal page, check-out the quality of the pictures they have posted -…"

David Fisher replied to Esteban Damián Padilla Arias's discussion Please your critic!!! in the group Photo Criticism
"Looking at it again, and as you have asked for and posted it in the critique section, I may have misinterpreted your intention here - if the lady is meant to be sitting in the flower ignore my earlier comment and, instead, get her seated into it a…"

David Fisher replied to Esteban Damián Padilla Arias's discussion Please your critic!!! in the group Photo Criticism
"In addition to Roberts points I'd add, you can get away with the unusual framing because the concept of the composite permits it - it's a clever idea. The thing I don't like is the way the petal comes out of the model's backside…"

David Fisher replied to Jeniver Agbayani's discussion one morning at my window in the group Photo Criticism
"This one is not of the standard of your other posting - it's more a snap out of the window, I think.  Probably the sky attracted you - but it doesn't make a picture on its own (although it may have been worth saving as a background…"

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.
