    Ladies Tea Event - C&C

    I was asked by a close friend if I would shoot some photos at the local church's annual tea party event. This was a great no-pressure opportunity for me to be able practice, because it was all just for fun. This year's theme for the tea party was "Wedding Dresses Through the Eras". The church...

    Too Pasty or Nice Unexpected Result?

    I don't think the lens flare is a bad thing. Sometimes lens flare can be really nice and I think it adds to the photo in this circumstance. Except the photo seems kinda hazy or out of focus or something... not really sure what it is... is it caused by the lens flare??? I can't tell

    oh and p.s... for the off-camera flash i suggested, there are lots of websites out there to learn about this and many that give tips on do-it-yourself lighting :) here are some links: Five Great Flash Techniques To Improve Your Photography Light | Strobist: Lighting 101...

    c&c if you are not too busy :)

    #1 is definitely too saturated. the background is a little busy as well. i'm not sure where the skater's shadow is at on the ground... seems to be missing maybe?? #2 i think this one is the strongest of the bunch because of the composition. some better lighting would make this photo...

    C&C on this photo

    well the colors are absolutely beautiful!! the lighting is great, the subject is interesting and the composition is nice & simple. don't forget the rule of thirds though. it would be nice if the horizon was either on the top third line or the bottom third line, rather than in the center. and...

    first time with action shot C&C

    Good job with the composition in #1 and #2 :) Good job also with the shutter speed and "freezing" the motion going on here. The whites seem to be a little on the blue side... I'm guessing that has to do with the white balance, but I'm still learning about that so I'm not completely sure :lol...

    Question and CC

    I think the crop you did on the first one is probably the same crop I would have done for that picture. Not really sure what the other person meant by cropping out the yellow dog and the shed... as cropping off that whole section of the photo would give a strange composition with the black dog...

    Some Christmas shots for C&C

    x2 to everything that Stosh said :) I also like #1 better... it's a nicer composition. These have a nice, warm & cozy feeling to them :)

    C&C please

    ok i completely disagree about this photo being grainy. there is a lot of detail in the dog's fur and that is a GOOD thing!! you don't want to lose the detail. I think the angle of this is nice because it is different, but a bit of the dog is outside of the frame. try keeping the dog in the...

    4 shots for cc please

    #2 is a nice way to study DOF :) i just did this same thing today with some jellybeans :lol: i like the lighting in these a lot, especially in #3 and #4 but surely you can find something interesting around your house to shoot! how about that christmas tree in the background?? you could...

    First time not on auto CC

    good job on going off auto... it too me much longer to do that than it did you! :lol: i can tell that you've got an eye for the type of shot you are trying to capture. you are off to a great start! i would like to make a few suggestions for improvement as far as composition goes. #1...

    Are these pics worthless?

    they are definitely not worthless! i think the first one is a more visually interesting photo but could use a crop to make it even more interesting... maybe crop out part of the top and the right hand side?? not so sure about the second one... but as someone said before, the value in these is...

    Beach - C&C please

    oh yes a panorama would be really nice! i'm thinking maybe i can try to warp the horizon?? i will have to play with it and see. thanks for the advice on this, you're very helpful :)

    Beach - C&C please

    Yes the horizon does arch up in the center... I'm guessing because of the angle this was shot at and the fact that in the original, the horizon is totally tilted to the left. Not sure if this is something I could fix or not... That is an interesting suggestion about cropping it that way...
