Taken at a park in Omaha, NE. Nikon D90.
Either my shots left everyone speechless, or no one likes to post replies.
As far as technical aspects they all look kind of dim, or underexposed. It looks like you have a good grasp of the rule of thirds.
The image with the most potential of the series is the last one. However, since the nearest object is in focus, but nothing else is, the eye is not drawn any further into the image. I think it would have worked better with very deep DOF and everything being in focus. Then a viewer could venture into the image and explore a bit.
Apparently you 'saved for web' because there is no EXIF data.
I agree that the last shot was a little to wide to leave everything else out of focus. I may have thrown a little too much contrast into these shots which is why they look dim, except the first one, which was definitely and underexposed shot that I tried to light up with photoshop.
So are these *fake* black and whites?
I like them,don't know why, except for the selective colouring of the bench.
If you can tell me how a D90 would shoot in B & W, please go ahead. The only way I can make color photos b & w is through photoshop. If thats fake then I don't want to be real.
Actually, I was just making fun of a different thread were someone asked that. Hence the 3 smiley faces.
Go to page 108/109 of your D90 manual. You can select Monochrome and make B&W images with your D90 without having to later convert them.
you're full of useful info
What can I say? I read camera manuals cover to cover. Have you checked out my new blog? It's in my siggy. I really like to know how things work.
I never use the mono mode in any of my cameras. I always convert in Photoshop.
