    Hello all-

    Been a while since I have posted but would love any feedback you may be able to provide.

    These are a few shots from Mattituck, located on the North Fork of Long Island in New York.

    Love all of them, but I like the strawberry one the most. You might be a tad over-exposed on the first pic. It just seems a bit bright to my eyes the ground seems to distract you away from the sign and the people. That's only my opinion. Great Work :)

    I agree with Shorty97, most of them are a little over exposed, if you clicked these in bright daylight, I would suggest using a ND filter :) helps a lot! :)

    I am very sorry to say that I didn't think they were that great, they are more like snapshots. None of them show anything interesting, and there's no composition or storytelling element to any of them. I especially did not like the last one, where the guys hands are cut off.

    For 1& 2 if you bring the contrast down a bit it will darken the pictures. Also add some saturation (esp. to the strawberry pictures) to put the color back in.

    A tip: For better CC folks around here would like you to number them. Just makes it easier to comment on them.

    I feel like most of these are snapshots. You captured a good time but there isn't anything special about them...Like paul said these don't tell a story, the composition is poor. The one that has some potential is the strawberries shots.

    #1 overexposed and no real defined subject. My eyes are drawn between the sign and the couple but neither stands out.

    #2 Better composition but with leading lines like you have here I would really like it if there was something at the end. Still a good shot.

    #3 More of a snapshot. Kinda funny but I would need a back story to really appreciate it.

    JMHO

    Sorry, but I have to agree with Pau1 & Flamshots, that your pictures are basically snapshots, not photographs. Nothing wrong with snapshots if that's what you were after on a days outing.

    A photograph tells a specific story through composition, exposure, lighting, & DOF. Only the Strawberry picture is on the right track, but lacks a strong composition. It should have been just the strawberries with selective focus for a powerful presentation.
