I'll be voting for them on Thursday :D
They're both good portraits and capture a sense of fun and energy that most politicians lack. You can sense in the second shot a real energy and enthusiasm for what they believe in.
A very fine controlled exposure.
Good example of this type of shot. I sometimes think this sort of thing works better as a portrait style composition- did you turn the camera the other way.
A suggestion - I do see the comment about the sun being in the far side of the shot. A square, 5x4, 4x3...
I am ok with them - but I can see your point.
I like the clouds but I envisage this second shot with clouds from an earlier trip.
I can see the fourth shot in that thread - composed like the...
My view - great location but not a great composition.
I think to keep things simple - lose the foreground - all of it - it's messy and does nothing good in your picture. I'd have got to the waters edge and shot a little wider losing all the crap at the front.
It's quite flat - there's room...
I like a 20mm on FF - Nikkor F1.8 20mm I use a lot - certainly in my local patch and my usual tripod holes it's on a lot. For UK Landscapes you don't need any wider. I did find though in Spain it wasn't wide enough for some of the small lakes and much bigger mountains than you get here. So I...
Finally summer is here. It's no secret it's my favourite time of year so it was high time I headed out to enjoy the fine weather. It's still a little brown on the Moors so I chose compositions around this.
First up is a lovely little fall on the River Coe - very little light about but the sky...
I’m preferring a more natural rendering approach as opposed to very strong colours although in the case of one the red saturation and luminance was pushed a lot. It looked like that with the eye but the raw was very faded as I had to under expose to keep the blues in the sky then I just brought...
I grabbed these on a recent workshop last week. Once I got my client comfortable and ready for what was one of the best mornings I ever saw I couldn't resist a few shots and the client wanted a few demonstration shots on how I work.
Whilst I don't shoot time lapses (I really should) I do like...
Actually one point of crit - and it isn't aimed at you.
Anyone else look at that Reine shot (7) and see what all these climate change leftists are on about. Imagine that shot without the village, just the water and mountains - as god made it rather than as us toileting it. At first due to the...
I guess - Glencoe really being my local spot and honestly I just keep going back for more and more.
Although I like going to new places and seeing new things too. There has to be a mix of local and new.
Not much wrong there. Despite the lack of light the definition in the sky and textured dark rocks save it. Processing stands out as being very nicely done. For coastal work (which I very seldom do) I might favour a shorter exposure to retain more texture and a sense of movement in the sea rather...
Yep. Luckily I’ve exported the RAWs into folders the same way as I run projects and exported 16 bitt tifs of the final renditions into folders organised the same way.
I’ll buy capture one and just edit new stuff in that and if I want to re render prior RAWs I’ll import into c1.
I’m tempted to...
Very - like last month. It’s not been a great year for me landscapes wise until this mornings workshop where I nabbed a few demonstration shots. I like the square better too
My tripod does what it does best - go where it’s been many many tines before :)
Some recent(ish) reflections from me
