    Hello everybody,
    I'm also new on this forum and I've only recently began shooting. these are my first photo's and I would like some comments on them.
    ps I photoshopped the first one (very simple because i don't know a lot about photoshop, but i liked the result nevertheless)

    feel free to give (hard) critic

    If your looking for "hard" critique, I think the first one is noisy and over exposed, 2nd is boring, noisy, dark, and out of focus. I really really like the 3rd though. Awesome composition. Keep shooting though, you'll never improve if you don't!

    the first 2 just dont interest me at all, but the 3rd i think is great, maybe a little dodging on the drump set might help bring out the details

    You can imbed more than one image per post instead of making a new post for each image.

    The first 2 images are gone, so.....no comment.

    #3 Very dark. Underexposed by 1.7 stops. Not necessarily bad, if purposeful. It does give a sense of mystery. Some will explore the darker recesses of the image but most will just move on.

    Our brain knows brighter things are usually closer to us, with darker things in the background. So, the light colored square panels on the wall are the primary (or dominant) element in the image and the eye goes there first. The secondary element is the drummers bright white t-shirt and thats where our eye goes next. It takes a couple of seconds to realize it's a drummer doing his thing because the drum set comprises tiertiary and quantary elements.

    A play:

    the first two photo's are gone due to a problem with photobucket (also the first time i used photobucket). but thanks to earlier comments i now see clearly what the mistakes were in those two photo's, so that's alright.

    your comment on my third photo is really helpful to me, i understand the black - white theory but i don't really understand the practical side. i mean what would you've done different? make the drummer the primary element?

    thanks a lot, you're all being very helpful!
