The first is the best for me, I like the 2nd too but it lacks the contrast of the first - easily tweaked.

The sunrise is cool as it is but I think this one where I'd be tempted to ignore the rule of thirds and crop half of that sea out.

Public Space
In reply to Hen3ry, 8 months ago

My company has an HQ office up in North London. The lobby is a public space where there's an art gallery and restaurant etc. It's where I took the shot last week.  I've been wanting to take some pics there for ages and finally got around to asking the facilities guys and getting permission. These were taken across a couple of days and I still have more I want to do there.

I showed this first last week in reply to a question from Florida but wanted to post it again as part of the set. Also, I'm really pleased with the composition on this one.

Lower ground level - seat anyone?

Looking up

Not certain that the blue works in this

Really like the frog. I think you could turn that into a cracking picture with a bit of investment in PP

Any given day in the last 3 weeks
In reply to Hen3ry, 8 months ago

Actually, more like every other day.

Shot from my front doorstep... just hanging out waiting for the time to go to the snow-blower. I usually wait for end of storm or sunset, whichever comes first...

Shortly after taking photo I had to go and fetch wife home from work...  Snow got removed at sunset, and again in the morning.

Very nice subject matter here. I always like dramatic clouds. For my taste, I would brighten the shadows in the third shot overall and especially in the sky. The first shot would benefit without the tree limbs in the upper left corner.

In reply to Wormsmeat, 8 months ago

I agree that temporarily flooded areas create new and different photo opportunities, especially reflections. I especially like the framing and light of the second shot. The third shot is a tad underexposed for my taste.

Re: Hawks and more
In reply to Florida Nature Photographer, 8 months ago

The second of the hawk shots has the best composition for me, but none them seem super sharp when looking at the head. These could have been shot hand held, which would explain that. I also noticed that the eyes were closed in the third shot. I think birds look better with their eyes open and you see the glossy reflection from their eyes. The final shot doesn't do it for me. There is too much empty sky. Silhouetted buildings can be very interesting, but the skyline is such a thin strip here that it has little impact. There are elements to make a very good shot, but I would look for opportunities to make the silhouettes more prominent and varied (or unique) in shapes.

Regards

Michael

1st and 3rd - nice composition and a bit different from what you usually see - I like them. 2nd birdie is a bit chopped IMO I would have liked to have seen more of him. Having said that you've captured him in a good pose and his face is appealing.

I agree with Michael that these are not as sharp as you might want them to be. When I look at bird pictures (which I'll admit is not often) I am  amazed by the detail and sharpness.that some people manage to capture.

Some color, some b&w, some squirrels
In reply to Hen3ry, 8 months ago

Here's an assortment from the past week, mostly from Central Park. I played around with Silver Efex to save some shots I didn't like so much in color.

Path near Wollman Rink leading to the Central Park Pond

The shadows here caught my eye. I didn't like the color version so much, but I don't know if I "saved" it with b&w.

This is an HDR image of Angels of the Water processed in Silver Efex. The color version was very flat and I much prefer how it turned out in b&w.

I posted a color version of this shot in last week's thread, but I prefer this b&w version.

Lexington Avenue light trails with the Voigtlander 17.5mm

There were a large number of squirrels digging in the snow at Cherry Hill in Central Park looking for food. They reminded me of prairie dogs digging burrows.

Most New York squirrels are grey colored, like the one above, but here is a dark haired squirrel.

Regards

Michael

All good; I actually think the 2nd is my favourite. I enjoy shots that make one wonder which way is up. 3 is good too though.

This one takes the prize. A great shot. I like the other squirrel very much too but this fella has a little something extra..
