Hey guys, I'm new to photography and I just took this pic last night. I'm just wondering if it's any good or if there's anyting i can do to make it beeter? I hate the little bright light towrads the bottom right. Thanks.
And the trees are still soft.
This forum, I thought, was for final judging kind of stuff, not fixing, or trying to.
This image would not do well at any judging by a formal association. Not even with the edit.
That's not all bad. It's a new experience. Try again. Not every photo is a keeper, much less an award winner.
You are new. You said that.
Dont' quit trying.
You have some great colors here.
You saw something worthy, and that is the most true sign of a great photo.
Maybe you should just take more time with the photo.
Lots of people are here to help.
This photo makes me wonder if maybe it was taken with a camera phone?
Its quality is poor, though the sky is lovely and the scene was certainly worth a photo. Composition lacks a bit, along with the very visible technical flaws which have been mentioned already, in so far as there is too much of the black foreground.
When you are so new to the hobby, you might want to post your photos to our galleries, much rather than to the Critical Analysis ... there you will ALSO get critical comments. People on here try to be helpful in each and every one of our galleries (in the most ideal of cases, of course) .
Image deleted - in response to later post - apologies if I contravened forum protocol.
Shots like this are REALLY difficult , my choice would be to use a tripod and bracket each side of the suggested meter reading but that's not always possible and is no guarantee of a perfect shot. Use the strengths of digital i.e take a number of shots at different exposures , and be grateful you're not using film
This is not the Technical Assistence Forum, this is the Critical Analysis Forum. So this is where finished work is being critiqued. This is NOT the forum where edits are being offered of how a FINISHED (<- that is the requirement for work being presented here) work can be made any better.
