    Some of my shots seem to have a little static or 'fuzz' to them. How do I clean that up?

    Thanks

    They are all very dark and kinda bluish

    The last one is too centered to be interesting, actually, many of the car ones are too centered

    The third to last one has the mirror clipped

    for the fuzz, turn down your iso, to as low as possible

    I know they are underdeveloped I was honestly trying to make them a darker mood. Which I completely failed at :lol:. But the fuzz thing. Lower ISO and that should help it? Thanks. I appreciate it. I'm really pissed that I cropped the mirror in that one picture. I think it would have looked better otherwise. As far as trying to get a darker setting or darker 'feel' to the pictures. Any suggestions?

    Which is weird that you say that. I had someone say to me 'start centering your pictures more, they will turn out better.' So that's what I did for these pictures. Odd.

    Some pictures can look good centered, but one of the most popular and common photographic rules is called the rule of third. You can google for more in depth information, but essentially, if you split the image in 3 sections vertically and then horizontally, the intersections of the lines are the highest points of impact / interest in the image.

    Look at your last image and the one before, don't you find the one that is a bit off to the side more appealing visually?

    Looking for repeating paterns, leading lines, S curves, angles/diagonals are also other things that make an image interesting.

    Who is the someone who told you to center things?


    As for going for a darker mood, try playing with black and white conversions, contrast, levels. Or desaturate an image, making things monotone and so on.

    Bah, not desaturation of an image. Gah! There be better ways to turn thine image into a monochromatic masterpiece. ;)

    The ones of your car just look like a car in front of different things... I hate that. Figure out a way to make it interesting and/or fun! That's the real challenge!


    the very first one is kind of cool. it looked like your car was hooked to an old timey trailer or something... then I realized it was just backed up to an old truck. and there are mad insects stuck to your bumper. have some pride, man! wash that piece!

    This is helpful info. There are times when I ask "what makes a good ...". I think what I mean to be asking is, what do other people look for in an image that makes it good to them.

    I agree, but just giving out examples for things to try out. There is rarely 1 perfect set of post processing steps for every image to make them all masterpieces.
