This is at the Valley of Temples on Oahu, pretty amazing. Please be as honest as possible.
1. First image doesn't do much for me...just don't find it that interesting.
2. The second image is better. I like the clarity of the image but not the composition. Seems too tight to the temple on the left, I don't like how the temple has an upward tilt to the right, a little too much water in the foreground and the blown out sky is competing for attention with the temple. A tighter crop might work better. Colors could use a little more saturation brightness.
thank you for the critique, is this any better?
I personally think that looks much better! Less water made a world of difference in my opinion.
I like the second one. The first image looks a little crooked to me? plus it seems to lack enough contrast. And sorry just doesn't have anything to draw you into it.
I like the edit on the second one as well. Reflections are typically a good thing, just didn't work in the original you posted.
They are both nice! good jorb!
I really like the 2nd one. I agree with Samanax except, I'd like to see it in a bit wider angle shot, show the surroundings, kinda put the temple into context of terrain. I personally think cropping so tight leaves a boring image, where if you zoom out and get a little wider, I want to know where the is coming from and going. As well as where the mountain ridge behind it takes you. But very nice.
#2 is a great shot. I prefer ther original edit, personally.
I like the water there, but I agree that the sky is a bit too much.
early in my photography education I am struggling with the blown out skies. I've heard you have to meter on the sky but it still shows all blown out in the pick. That will be a big hurdle for me whenever I'm able to do it.
I like the unedited version of your 2nd picture best, but I'm not very qualified to give C&C. I did wonder, however, how you post photos with black frames around them? My noobieness is showing.
I like the first one the best, but would have preferred to see maybe more of a straight on, wider angle shot. love the contrasting colors, and its a super crisp image. Good job! :thumbup:
