For now, I think theres going to be quite alot of pictures of flowers and assorted still life objects while I get used to the camera, then you'll see some crazy stuff.

Nice image quality. Very crisp shots, it's a nifty piece of kit no doubt.

Not sure about the subject matter but I think you already know that it's hardly the most awe-inspiring, but that's natural while you get used to the new camera.

I love the first picture. Very Skillful!

I'm not entirely sure how the background for the rose shots became blue, I think its due to the magic sunset light.

it feels kinda busy... if you increased that diagonal a bit from the dock you just might have it.

then again, i'm a low depth of field kinda girl. so maybe that's just your preference haha

... ACTUALLY, on second thought, i like it a LOT cropped like this:

(don't hate me!)

Mandy 13-07-2006 04:36 AM

Yeah, it looks a lot better cropped that way to me as well....

Hazzle 13-07-2006 10:52 AM

Much better in Cara's cropped version. More artsy.

acliff 13-07-2006 12:00 PM

I like your version alot Cara, and I wish subscribe to your newsletter.
Initially I was trying to preserve the geometry that I saw in the scene, the sky is overexposed and distracting, but it was a studendously bright day.
Converted it to black and white because in colour it looked washed out.

I prefer the crop along these lines to retain the geometry of the staircase.
Nice work.

Hazzle 13-07-2006 01:20 PM

Yeah I was thinking that too Brad, when I looked at it again. It's just the sky that's distracting, really, there's too much of it in the initial shot.

Your cropped version shows a little but not too much.

A better version then, would you agree?

runangl 13-07-2006 08:24 PM

i think there's still too much bright area at the top... your eye is naturally drawn to the lighter area of a picture, but the major subject area is in the lower section of the picture.

oh... and you should never have a diagonal come directly out of the corner... it just never works well. (unless you're ansel adams or something haha)

Mandy 13-07-2006 08:28 PM

My favourite is still Cara's crop. Nice going.

Technically not great, but I like it

acliff 13-07-2006 09:01 PM

Some random pictures of fences and houses and doors and stuff to follow, the river + scenery didn't look particularly special today.
