Well I’m back in, I’ve not given myself time to change my mind .... I must admit I have missed the challenge, I think I previously managed four complete years, looking forward now to another.
Stunning shot, it really is staring at you. Beautifully in focus and superb colours. Excellent start.
Thank you, I was pleased I managed to capture such a direct look.Stunning shot, it really is staring at you. Beautifully in focus and superb colours. Excellent start.
It’s a bit of an evil eye isn’t it, thank you for looking in, much appreciated.Great start! Definitely giving you a look Perfectly exposed as well.
Well it was with the new camera but he was about two foot away camera seems pretty versatile so far and easy to use, an essential for me!Evil looking thing. About 55 miles away, taken with your new bridge camera?
great detail in his face, well done for getting so close although he doesn't look too happy about it.
Great close up of Mr Evil, love it.
A lovely close-up Susie.
I immediately thought of The Birds.. still scares the hell out of me! Really sharp shot and lovely detail.
Thank you so much for taking time to comment all, I’m pleased you all liked it, even if he is a bit creepyCreepy. I get these birds on the roof opposite my office window and their eyes creep me out. Very dramatic.
Thanks Dave.Loving the lighting on this great shot Susie, spot on and yummy looking.
Thank you for looking in and commenting Dominic.Fruit
Nicely composed and a strong black background. I do think it is a bit under exposed.
Thank you, all feedback appreciated.Lovely composition but a bit too dark for me i'm afraid.
Thank you Tim, no didn’t use anything, I’m trying to keep it simple this time, just black card on the kitchen worktop and the under cupboard light shining down.Are you using a snoot for the shot Susie? As the light looks very controlled/directional.
I do like it dark like that.
Thank you d00d.Just loving those tones.
Thanks Allan I did wonder about a floaty look, I though maybe using the dish would ground it a bit rather have than floaty strawberries, maybe I should have cropped more to oblong than square and lost some off the bottom.Nice reds, I think the overall darkness of the image which I don't mind brings out the red, it could do with grounding maybe the dish is kind of in mid air
Thank you for looking in, I don’t have Lightroom or any editing programme apart from the basics on my iPad. I think dark shots are always subject a bit to whatever they’re being view on, I tried this one on my OH Samsung tablet and it looks a lot lighter and brighter on my iPad, so a bit awkward to find a balance.As I have found, photographing strawberries is not as easy as it looks as my own has shiny highlights that I don't like. I feel this is underexposed by too much as the plate looks grubby and I suspect it is actually white. Lightroom it up a bit and it'll be lovely.
Thank you for looking, much appreciated.Mmmmm Stawbs.
Nice shot and comp but as has been said - a bit dark and floaty.
Much appreciate you looking in Tom, thank you.I love the darkness of this photo, it really emphasises the reds. Now I want some strawberries!
Hi there, thank you for looking in, yes, I did think that myself about the crop.Nicely composed and good lighting. I think I would have cropped a little tighter under the dish, and lifted the exposure a touch.
Thanks Nick.I can't really offer anything on this. Lighting, colours, dof, central placement and the space around it all work really well together.
Thank you.Looks good to me the colours work well
Thank you, yes I think Flickr always lifts photos a bit.Very nice Susie. I like the slight darkness and it looks great on Flickr.
