  • 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 ...

    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...

  • Replied in How'd I do?
    I think you should try to simplify your photos, remove distractions. Like the branches in front of the turtle, that's no good. Try for a cleaner view. On the other hand, the branches around the ...
  • Apparently size, weight, price and lack of autofocus are not compromises.

  • I think you did a good job keeping the cars sharp, which is not easy. I think I would prefer to see the background blurred even more, but that is more difficult. When panning, I think the choosing ...
  • I like impressionist techniques in photography. I enjoy the vague, dreamlike quality of these photos. I have seen other photography of this type and I have tried to do something similar for my own...
