  • That's kind of a triple exposure isn't it? The pure white background, the dog, and the trees. It feels like 3 in 1 instead of 2 in 1. It should be just the dog and the trees.But right now they ...
  • Wow, that's a very uncommon sight. The contrast is very striking: the nature vs. the man-made pool, the beautiful vs. the ugly, the red vs. the cyan (opposite colours). The butterflies/moths' (?) ...
  • The recently announced Olympus PL7 seems interesting to me partly for its unobtrusive looks. I don't really do street photography, but it's nice to have the option, and unobtrusive is good regardless.
  • Too much blank space. They look incomplete,like works in progress. The last one is okay. Maybe you should consider doing different versions on different layers, and then compositing them together ...
  • Back in the day when I started out, I bought PSE3, $100. But I quickly outgrew it. Without full Curves, PSE is not a serious photography program. GIMP I don't think a serious program either because ...
  • And that is the whole premise of this thread: that a technically perfect photo can still be not interesting. And so the OP asks why his photo is not interesting. Because he already knows it is not ...
  • I notice perspective distortion a lot when composing these days. It is noticable with buildings. Cropping further can create imbalance. Which is important because part of the point of cropping is ...
  • I don't think I like the first photo. But, maybe I like the last two. The second one, that yellow "Hotel" sign is too distracting. It kinda looks out of place. Maybe it is too prominent. The style ...
  • Very beautiful photo. Very atmospheric. I like how you used the 3 ridgelines, they are balanced. They are progressively shrouded in mist from foreground to background. It is perfect. 10/10. Btw, ...
  • I like the use of HDR in the second photo. It is very fitting, doesn't call attention to itself like so many HDR. I also like the contrast between foreground and background. It's almost like 2 ...
  • I like that photo of the girl the most. The way you use the lines there (the fence) is effective. I think you experiment with vertical orientation. All your photos are horizontal.
  • I like how the bridge leads to the sun. I would think about emphasizing that a bit more. What purpose does the foreground serve? Also consider lowering F-stop to give shape to the sun. But be ...
  • Replied in C1 Attempt
    It seems every time I think about buying a new camera, that article pops up to remind me what's really important. Alex Majoli's photos are amazing, my photos will never come close, no matter which ...
  • Replied in C1 Attempt
    I tried C1 with a photo from 4 years ago I never published before. It's overexposed, lots of blown highlights, lots of CA and fringing, so it's probably a good test. C1 seems to do a good job. In ...
  • Replied in doady
    I think I bought PSE3 for $100 ($50 off $150) back in the day. It supports C5060 and C7070 but it only lasted a few years - it doesn't run on modern systems. Not a huge loss I guess - it sucked ...
  • Pro is 50% discount too. The current version 7 came out in 2012 apparently, so it's kind of old... It would be nice to have a proper (and non-pirated) photo-editing and raw converting program. ...
  • Shouldn't a great photo speak for itself? A picture is worth a thousand words after all... If a photographer has to explain their photo, what it means, why it is relevant to the challenge, etc. ...
  • First photo would work better if it was cloudy, no sun. Same maybe with the macros. If I were to print that last bird photo at 8x10, 11x14, 16x20, etc, I'd crop the left side, it would be perfect. ...
  • I think you made the right choice photographing this forest under overcast conditions and omitting the sky. It prevents excessive contrast and blown highlights (pure white areas). Although there ...
  • Those faux landscapes are so cool. I experimented myself in the past to do these fake landscapes, but arguably less successfully. I think these photos really are a good example of how photographers...
