I know its a lot for one thread...sorry!! But any advice/needs for improvement are very much appreciated from you guys...thanks for taking the time to check them out!
i'll comment about the ones that caught my interest!
#4 is great compositionally but a little too overexposed.
#6and7 also are really intersting. very clear, great colors, great mood.
whats your setup?
I am using the Canon Rebel XS with the stock lens...until I pick up a new lens. Yeah for some reason I have been having trouble with the overcast sky with my shots Which should be an easy shot with the evenly distributed lighting throughout the scene.
I really like photo #10. Looks great- very vivid!
I was just curious if people recommend Aperture-Priority for overcast skys...when dealing with dark places in the foreground and bright overcast sky in background?
Those are great photos. I love the one with the american flag and the italy..
It doesn't really matter, I don't think. The exposure is a total combination of factors. ISO, Shutter Speed, Aperture, and I think most importantly, what you meter off of. I have been struggling with this issue too. If I get the sky acceptable, the foreground gets too dark. I think in this situation an Neutral Density Filter is good idea. A Circular Polarizer helps a bit, but not the answer.
I like #5 and #6 for color, composition, and content.
Man, you were in NYC and that's all you got!?
I really like the candid catch of #6. Dramatic lighting.
No, there were a lot lot more, I just didn't want to put them all up. Also was showing my French friend around the city and could only get to a few spots which was unfortunate. However, I like 40 minutes from the city so it's easily accessible
Bitter Jeweler, I know what your saying I had a few of those with some of my statues, it's tough. I would try metering the sky and the statues would be dark and vice versa for a read off the statue . Yeah I think I should look into a 3-stop neutral density filter.
