    I was with a friend of mine and I decided to take some shots of his kids school area. I think I did pretty well for what was supposed to be a few practice shots. :sexywink:

    It's a shame though that these images were originally so big I ran out of memory twice, and I'm loaded with memory. :lol:

    Thoughts? :er:

    I don't want you to feel like your getting beat up here or anything, but there is just nothing appealing about them.

    1. Lots of sky...and a branch on the left.
    2. Looks to be a football field. I guess you can use that with your logo "symetrical photography".
    3. Field lights, nothing to look at.
    4. 100% out of focus.

    Be creative, use angles, lighting, exposure, and the surroundings to your advantage. When I am taking a picture, whether it's a potrait, macro, sports, whatever. I always ask myself would I print this, is it interesting to look at, is there a story to it. If not, find another way to take it.

    I am not a professional, I am an amateur for sure, I take lots of snapshots no doubt. But when I ask for C&C, I try to make it a learning experience.

    All comes with the learning process - If I want to be good I need support.

    1. Yeahh.. Was a much larger image, I'm still trying to figure out how to get the sky in without underexposed objects (including trees) with a poor sensor.
    2. Asymmetrical
    3. See 1.
    4. Yeah I noticed that before I even started editing, I think it was the way I stitched it together.. But I said what the hay.

    I do the same, as far as the 'story' part. Everything tells a story, you just have to look for it. I was just out for practice today, and I'm looking into exposures and lighting techniques. I don't really have any lighting equipment so I'm looking to find another way to compensate, and I figured early morning hours would be good practice for it. I'm trying to learn using a more "go out and do it and learn from trial and error." sort of thing.

    But thanks for your input.. I have a few ideas in mind already. :er:

    You can't. Even with a good sensor.

    Look into HDR.

    Yeah that's what I'm doing, I think it's fun to play around with the levels on an HDR picture. That's actually more a reason I went out for practice today, 'cept I forgot my tripod in a rush so all of my "HDR" images weren't all that great so I just decided to do other things.

    When looking at the full size, there is A LOT and I mean A LOT of noise.

    Indeed. I could've edited it out but they weren't meant to be zoomed in, so... :er:
    Plus I have no idea where it even came from..

    Don't really know, I don't re-size my stuff.. I just do some edits here and there, maybe a slight touch-up and let the host do the rest with resizing (dA for example), to preserve as much originality as I can. It's silly, I know. :meh:

    Sure, if you say the bleachers on the right make it Asymmetrical, I would say it looks pretty symmetrical IMO though.
