    ugh, i just typed up a bunch of shit and then OT timed out.

    1 = cool, nice composition
    last one = cool, needs more focus
    back of head = cool
    waterfall = too soft

    It is cliche, but it's hard to think about stuff like that when you're stoned.

    This is the best one because of the lens flare

    As for the waterfall picture... No shit it's soft.
    Kit lens ( :ugh: ), 1 second shutter, and stabilisation provided by some tree.

    That wasn't defensive.
    I was merely explaining why that picture is soft.

    Nah, there was an ugly "shit for sale" sign next to the house, and it was getting in the way.
    Besides, this way I can follow the rule of thirds. :mamoru:

    Branches are a bit distracting and could be sharper I think
    This would be good if you had the whole house in the frame.
    Nice Pic :bigthumb:

    I like the house one best. I disagree with whoever didn't like it and said you should've put the whole house in. Nup. It looks best as is. I love the background to it. Very nice. :big grin:

    I don't like all the reddish brown shit above the waterfall, and the branches

    :dunno:
    It was a national park, one of the best in all of Europe, so it wouldn't feel right to just snap those branches away.
    And the water was so clean there.
    There was a stream, and the water in it was so clean and pure.
    You could drink it straight up, without any boiling and shit.

    I think I did a pretty good job on dodging and burning that black and white one.
    Parts of the bridge were very underexposed, and the bushes in the background overexposed.
    I like the way it turned out.

    Original:
    (Well, almost original. The original pic isn't black and white, so apart for a simple monochromatic conversion, this is the original)

    The second one needs more contrast. I think you went a bit too far with the dodging.
