just two pics from a recent trip to cardiff:
thanks for looking comments always appriciated.
#1 is awesome. The sign that reads "Coming Soon" adds to the photo.
No 1 is excellent - I saw that exact same view (well not quite, there was a bit more building left then I think) the other weekend when I went home for the Wales-Fiji match (re. which, no comment :meh: ). Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me, good thing really because the train was absolutely crammed...
Anyway nice photos - did you stay long in Cardiff? Where are you from?
I've just looked through your other posts and it looks like you've really got the photography bug! Keep up the good work
One thing that has struck me about a lot of your photos is that they seem to have suffered a bit from JPEG compression. If the compression is turned up too high, you can end up with flatness, blockiness or strange patterns in your images, especially in areas with fine detail or wide areas of a single colour. Are you shooting film or digital? Part of the problem may be in-camera if it's digital; you might want to tweak the settings.
With both digital and scanned film images, I'd recommend not going below about 7 or 8 on the Photoshop JPEG quality slider and to use a non-lossy format (eg. PSD) if you're saving often during editing, before saving the finished work as a JPEG. Otherwise you'll not be doing your photos justice
Happy shooting :thumbup:
yummifruitbat, im from forest of dean, you herd of that place?!? haha, i just went down for the day, just for something to do, thanks for the comments, very much appriciated, oh and i shoot film by the way. yeah i think they are a tad overexposed, maybee cus i was using b&w film in the 'auto' mode on my camera.
enjoyed watching both!! (its really boring to allways say "love it!" or "awesome!", no?)
:thumbup: The first one is really good. NIce shots.
Course I've heard of it I live in Bristol!
As far as exposure goes, yeah they are a little blown out but not too bad at all. I hope my explanation about JPEG compression made a bit of sense, because that'll improve your pics regardless of the exposure. Any questions, feel free to ask away
