go easy Obvious PP
The pics are all darker than i expected....they looked fine on my laptop at home.
The difference you are seeing is due to the monitors not being calibrated correctly, read up on the tutorials online on how to calibrate your monitor, there's tons of them it will help a lot.
about the pictures themselves, im not a big fan of nature pics so ill let the other people comment.
first pic - too many shadows IMO
2nd pic - too much DOF - it would've been a better shot if more was in focus.
I haven't been having very much luck getting the dof right at 2.8 and yes now that i think about it...it could've been sharper.
what about the overall composition ?
I'd work on composition. I can see what you were going for, to me they just need to be situated better in the frame
Care to explain more on how would you have situated them in the frame?
I'll do my best -
the stump photo - I would have gotton closer to the stump - maybe fill the left 1/3 or 1/2 of the frame with the stump and focus on the ivy - leaving the right side of the frame to capture the rest of the forest in the BG. I think the ivy would really pop considering the overall tone of the scene/BG is brown/greyish.
maybe that helps?
shadows can be cool. only in this case they're not.
thanks for the tip,....it does.
is it just the darkness of the picture or the (many) actual shadows that are present on the stump?
To me the first photo could be a cool concept (or atleast the way I see it). The tree has been cut down, but the shadow/memory still remains.
Just need some creative framing or some light to kill the front of the shadow on the foreground and stump. Whatever the case may be, you'd really have to work on the focal point/composition to clearly depict your idea/concept to the audience.
thanks for your input. I didn't even see the green ivy growing from the stump until i got home and saw the pic. The darkness is due to calibration of my laptop...its brighter on my laptop.
I guess i need to take my time in visualizing what i'm trying to get out of the picture first.
