multi-post? not allowed to post more than 1 picture?????
I agree with you!
The 2nd and 3rd pics are the same subject matter, just different cropped sizes.
The first one is intriguing in its simplicity, though it might benefit from cropping a bit off the bottom. The second I enjoy very much and am curious about how it might have looked with the camera a bit further back from its original position* so as to capture more of the scene including the reflection. (*Unless it was achieved with a zoom or it was not possible to move further back which is often the case in nature.) The reflection serves to reinforce the geometry of the composition in the third (even if it is just a section of the second picture).
All three seem a little underexposed or dark but I'll say wherever you took the second/third looks like a gold mine.
Mendoza, ty for replying with some actual critique, and help make me see my pictures in different way
It's really hard to critique when the images are so dark. Personally, I like the first and second composition, but please lighten them. You can do this pretty easily in Photoshop. Use Levels or (if you have the program) Curves.
get a life.
The first shot might have some interest if it was reduced to 5 separate tones ['posterized']. The basic composition is acceptable.
The remaining two are not interesting -- far too dark.
i will try and lighten the pics up some. when i open up Adoboe Photoshop, i get automatic ADD, there is just too many options and I want to click all the buttons. im still trying to get down the basics of photoshop
People post multiple pictures all the time, don't worry about it. First one is the strongest. Looks like the second and third, aside from being underexposed, also have a little bit of camera shake going on. I don't know if you've heard or follow this rule but its good practice to use a shutter speed equivalent to the inverse of the focal length youre using. So if you have a 50mm lens shoot no slower than 1/50 sec. Don't forget to compensate for smaller sensors if youre using one.
