Thoughts and comments please =D
So what do you think?
You need to aim away from the sun, you have shot directly at it in both of these photo. The glare from the sun is overpowering both shots and it has blown out the background and much of the center portion of the image. The second one is also out of focus.
Both images have blown up background and lack in contrast. In the #1 a protrait composition could have been better.
Well that was kind of the point of the second one but I guess I know not to do that now. =(
Here's a newer one. I didn't shoot directlty into the sun and the backround is supposed to be out of focus. So what could I have done better in this one?
better, but you cut off part of your subject. I still find there is a lack of contrast in the image
What do you mean lack of contrast. Also all of these photo's are un-edited.
i find there isnt too much grey, not enough black / white
combat this by shooting in the late evening/early morning, B+W heaven.
Ah thank you. I shall remember that. I love taking B&W photos.
That also applies to other types of photography...
Sky colours are best at sunset / rise
Light is not as harsh in the morning / evening.
Less people on the streets to "get in your shots"
