  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    I think that the angle on the second is so much better than the first (y) but I like the colours of the first as apposed to the B&W of the second, both look to need a little CW (ClockWise) rotation (y)

    I disagree, I actually think the angle on 1 is more interesting than the 2nd... for me!

    Is it just me or is the 1st image extremely soft?

    do to the first the same as the second and crop the top a bit
    make the dam the main event and crop down to its area then it will stand out
    moving round to the front of the dam as you did in no 2 is the best viewpoint then more dynamic water can be seen..
    cheers

    Thanks guys. Its a fantastic damn and I like to go there, but I want to get my pictures better.

    The picture looks a little soft as its a hand held shot and I think I wobbled it. I also used a wider aperature on the second picture and a faster shutter.

    I prefer picture two and I am grateful for the feedback.
