Wave as it crashes on the rocks. Comment and critique please
liking it very much!
Why is this picture perfect or "very nice" ?
I think composition is off and framing is far too close. Picture has interesting timing but :er:
Not to upset anybody, but I agree. It's missing some pop. It looks flat.
Not sure how to improve it, but maybe a different angle, or more DOF.
Maybe make it more Holga-ish?
i agree too.
Crazyfreespirit, how long have you been taking photos?
And I mean this in a very nice way.
I am just curious.
From that angle you cannot see the shape the splash in making and it all looks a bit flat. Try to get a splash side-on. Should give the pic much more impact
I agree with more DOF. Interesting shot tho.
Wow I don't check in for a bit, and find out my thread has reply's lol
First before I address anyone in particular, I'd like to thank all of you for replying. I'm about as amateur as you can get, so I honestly appreciate criticism. If people told me it was good, or tried to be nice about it, just not to hurt my feelings, I wouldn't learn anything, and then I'd suck forever lol. Only thing that makes it a little hard is when you really liked a photo, and then you find out it isn't great, but that's life, and like I said, the only way to learn. So thank you
Basically I just have a lot of questions, and I really appreciate answers, they help a lot.
Ok first, I think I get what composition is, but what exactly would make it better? Is it what others have said, about the wave being more from the side? As for framing, ya I understand that, unfortunately that's the picture I took, no cropping involved.
What's DOF? (seriously...I=noob )
No need for sad face, just tellin it like it is
Hey, no problem. I just don't really understand what you mean lol. Technically, I've been taking pictures since I got a camera at age 6, but I don't think that's what you mean.
Photo's...mm...never really, I guess, if "photo's" is to be taken to be meaning actually looking for "that" shot (angles,lighting, depth, post processing etc.). On my recent(last month) trip to Mexico is the only time I even tried to take "photo's"...before that I've always just been documenting what I see and like. This also means a lack of knowledge of anykind, and the cheapest camera possible basically lol
Mm, ok thanks for the advice!
