Here are ten pics that I took today that I like. What do you think?
your going to get a lot more help from people if post less pics.. 2-3... pick your faves
What I think is that posting 10 pics in one thread and hoping for informative comments is about 7 photos too many.
Second immediate thought after no more than a glance is that most seem to be underexposed, save a few, and that again I feel strongly that I myself don't like vignetting. One's not sharp, don't know if it's the state of zoom (got into "digital zoom"?) or if after having zoomed out so much the camera needed so much light that you could not longer handhold your photo (gnarled tree 2). That's all I'm thinking about these just now.
i like number 2
Love number 2 (Y)
As people said, there are too many pictures to leave comments on all of them. I'll just comment on the last 3.
8 & 9: the main subject of these pictures is obviously the dead tree in the foreground but you chose to exclude the base of the trunk. Why? I think these pictures would be better if they showed the complete tree, maybe in a portrait orientation. Also, the blown out sky is not very pleasing; but I guess it was difficult to avoid given the dull weather.
10: underexposed: the snow looks grey. Also the darker edges don't anything to the shot IMO.
Most are under exposed, some look as though the wrong white balance setting was used. Many are soft or not focused right.
Really don't care for any of them. The last one would look nice on a Christmas card...if it wasn't so underexposed.
I really like #2.
#3 isn't bad, something about the contrast I like.
I think #5 & #6 are beautiful. They are a bit dark, but it gives the sense to me of coldness.
The last one is very underexposed, and while I like the concept of the dead tree, its too bad the entire trunk isn't visible.
#1, not very interseting
#4,seems kind of cluttered, no main point of interest.
And #7 white balance looks off.
#3 has potential, I like the contrast.
#10 also has potential IF it was brightened up a LOT, cropped and the vignette was gone. The curves and lines have appeal.
Good start to landscapes.
