    Late afternoon in Oregon

    updated crop by Jeffrey Lee, on Flickr https://www.flickr.com/gp/79376698@N05/jR2u79 Would love to get some feedback on this shot from my trip to Oregon. I quite liked the light and composition when I first took it. Did some basic edits focusing on color / light to enhance what was already there.

    Fall Reflections

    I just cropped it 8x10 to make it more halfway. Does it look too boxy? I wanted to emphasize the length of the bridge. Test-2 by Jeffrey Lee, on Flickr

    Sunset at Acadia

    Thanks for the comment. I agree, I think I went a little bit too high on the clarity and highlight tool for the foreground rock. I added a little gradient. I think it also helps lead the viewer into the photo now and blends better with the rest of the scene. _MG_5924-1 copy-8 by Jeffrey Lee, on...

    Lagastrello Lake

    How do you get that kind of dark moodiness to your shots? Is it just a vignette? Nice shot!

    Sunset at Acadia

    Would love some feedback on the edit ... was focusing on color and light. Link: https://www.flickr.com/gp/79376698@N05/59Wy66 _MG_5924-1 by Jeffrey Lee, on Flickr

    Lighthouse at Acadia

    Thanks for the feedback and the edit. So I was going for an Orton-y effect, which ended up making the light very soft throughout. It also made the rocks softer as well, which may or may not have the desired effect. Perhaps the rocks would look better sharper. I'll take a look at selectively...

    Lighthouse at Acadia

    Hi everyone, I was hoping to get some feedback on this shot. I've been working on improving my landscape editing workflow and trying to simply accentuate the colors, lighting, etc. that I saw when I took the shot. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks! 6530 version 2 by Jeffrey Lee, on Flickr

    Sophia

    yeah, I think there's some glare that might be slightly covering her eyes. either that or the focus was slightly forward on the lips (i had to manually focus since autofocus was having a field day with the glass in front of me!)

    Sophia

    thanks for the feedback. what kind of lighting adjustments are you talking about? the original shoot was shot in a pretty cloudy day, so we had pretty flat light. i tried to maintain that mood with the dodge/burning.

    Sophia

    Hi all, I had a chance to do a shoot for the first time in a bit, and I was a bit rusty with photoshop. I was hoping to get some feedback on the post-processing. I especially was focusing on getting the colors/toning to create a soft mood matching her expression ... Thanks! _MG_3919-Edit by...

    NYC From far, close, and in between.

    i actually like the people. 1) it makes for an interesting story - do they know each other? they look dark and mysterious ... what's going on there? the one sitting looks like she's praying almost, the guy looks a bit stalkerish perhaps :p - everyone will have a diff story, but that's the cool...

    reflections of la sagrada familia

    After taking the typical photos of the La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, I noticed some interesting reflections in the pond. Every so often, birds would fly by as well. I thought this might make for a nice, ethereal mood to the image ... tying together concepts of religion (La Sagrada is a...

    a beach landscape

    Aghh! What is the best way to align horizons? I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out whether the horizon was straight or not using photoshop but the straighten tool doesn't seem to work for me ... :(

    a beach landscape

    I'm trying out a new philosophy for editing landscape photos: "try to recreate the original scene/how you felt at the moment/what you saw at the moment and only enhance what you saw, not what you think things should look like." Essentially, trusting Mother Nature to do the right thing in terms...

    A Few photos I took this past weekend.

    I really like the lighting on the kids... clean and soft, which suits the subject matter. I would just watch the background a little more next time. The bright spots in the background take the focus away from the subject. It isn't a huge distraction in this case, but it is something to keep in...

    the peaceful path

    Another from my recent meditation retreat. This path links the two parts of the meditation retreat, and the monks often use this path to practice their walking meditation. I am trying to figure out whether I like an 8x10 crop more than the original. I was thinking about whether the original has...

    a morning chant: b&w/color?

    Thanks for the replies. I'll stick with color because it fits the mood. @limr, I played around with some crops but I felt cutting off the foreground streaks of light on the stairs reduced the depth of the image ...

    a morning chant: b&w/color?

    Spent a week at a meditation retreat. Every morning at 6AM, a monk would chant for about half an hour - an ethereal experience. I liked the original color schema, but thought b&w might also work. Thoughts on the edit and b&w vs. color? I didn't do much to this besides slight contrast...
