Not a fan of the angles, but the phots are nice.
Cool. Maybe a bit too strong contrast though.
can't tell if its military or just a abandoned restaurant/house.
Pretty nice for snapshots.
I've been told by OTAP some of my shots also looks like snapshots. What exactly do you mean when you say it looks like snapshots. Just like I put the camera on auto mode and fired?
i really like shot #2 very eerie
I think this one is the best
It seems to me, that he's finding random subjects to take pictures of. Then, does a lot of post-processing work to help out where he lacked in(composure creativity).
Instead of thinking "oh this is cool, I'll just take a picture". Think to yourself "oh, this is cool. Now how should I present this to the world?"
Just my two cents.
I agree. I think that without photoshop these would be not as good as they already arent. I am not a fan of abandoned shit but
1) too crooked and it takes my eye too long to see what this picture is really about and then it hits me. It is about a spigot that is turned in the wrong direction. Should have shot lower and from the left side.
2) too crooked and rip that shit from teh ceiling that is distracting me from wanting to look out that back window
3) a tad more to the left and a bit more straight or croped right and this would have been my favorite. Maybe because of the red acting against the yellows and green that the rest of this set are about or soemthing that I like about it.
4) tear that shit down and crop better and you have a decent shot. But as it stands you have it framed out much too strongly with the wide sides and bottom of darkness. But a creative framing method you prolly dont even realize you got
5) llower straighter and closer. I would have liked to been able to make out some of that shit thrown around on the couch
all in all - not bad.
thanks for all the crits. yes, i do quite a bit of post processing but that step is fun for me. I suppose i could play it down on some of them though. i have found that the shots that look good straight from the camera are the ones i end up liking the most - no matter if i use PS or not
i like a few of them, i don't really like your processing style, but that's just me.
Pretty cool shit man just go easy on the angles
I was distracted by the angles, and the harsh PP in several. However, the PP done in this shot is how the rest should be, IMO.......when I see a thread with abandoned building photo's......this is what I picture in my head. My only other CC is to share a larger picture (800 pixels wide)
i see the angles you guys mentioned, and now that i realize it, i definitely need to straighten them out
Military base? What's the name? That looks like Northern State Hospital out in Skagit County. Although, I don't remember seeing the couch when I was out there..
its called nike hill in redmond. i want to hit up that hospital too
could have just been an abandoned Staples....
I was hoping to see some cool shit that identified it as a military base.
snapshots are not defined by the method of exposure, but by the thought that goes into an image.
There should be more than 'hey, this looks neat...' behind an image. Whenever you take a picture, there should be a reason for it. What are you trying to tell/show/express to the people that look at your pictures?
In this case, the reason for shooting these pictures could have been to show how the military just leaves their shit behind when their done with it to decay and rot without consideration to anything else. Loads of parallel thoughts could have come from that.... But as a viewer, I don't get any of that. I get no meaning.
