On photo Pebbles in the Balance challenge (3 comments in total)

I like the subject, I like the lighting and I like the color tones but it seems that the shot is soft and grainy... I hope it's because of the compression or something...

That's how wide angles are supposed to be used.

On photo Crash in the Strobist - off camera flash challenge challenge (2 comments in total)

Because he wanted to be sure to nail the shot.

The room was very dark and the flash was fast. So the idea is that if the flash didn't go off the whole frame would have been black. no matter how long the exposure is, you will only see something when the flash will light. Then the next step is to find a way to have your flash sync with the hammer swing. As described in the notes, he used a self-built sound trigger. So as soon as the light broke, the flash triggered for a short time and that's the results.

Using a fast shutter would need either a very fast frame rate to not miss the shot or a perfect synchronization.. you could waste many light bulbs that way.

On photo Gol! in the celebrations challenge (1 comment in total)

This is a really interesting pictures, you really snapped your subject there! The composition is great too, the flag behind, the kid next to the guy, etc.

The colors are obviously a big part of the image too.

Only thing I would have liked different would have been a shorter DOF (yes I know it's 135mm @ Æ’/2 so shorter would be hard to achieve.. probably 200mm Æ’/2 or Æ’/2.8 but you would have to move, and the frame would be different... anyway I'm being snob here.

I love this shot.

On photo Odd in the odd man out challenge (6 comments in total)

Yes, this is a very good shot, exactly my kind of pictures, I sometimes do this kind of photography in metro and buses, but its hard to stealth enough, if they notice you, sometimes it screw the shot.

How did you take this picture? Any details worth sharing? I'm curious ;)

Awesome shot. I normally dislike HDR but I think it's appropriate for this kind of pic.
I like the angle too.

If I was her, I wouldn't want this picture to be published.

But I would have done the same as you.

On photo Reminds me something... in the ~ Rain ~ challenge (2 comments in total)

I really love this one. Having your subject leaving the frame like this really makes us feel the urge to find a dry spot.

On photo Wet School Rugby in the ~ Rain ~ challenge (2 comments in total)

Wow I like the colors, the subject, the framing, but i'm wondering, why so much black vigneting? it gives an artificial feel (along with the color correction) that I just feel wasn't needed. I would like to see a version with a 21:9 aspect ratio crop and some minimal vigneting. To me, it would make much more sense.

Anyway, It's a great photo. Congrats!
