    Tried some landscape shots with my new camera, keep in mind I'm extremely amateur.

    1 and 3, try putting the tree in the left or right side of the frame and not center it?

    1-3 are blah

    4 is terrible

    and they are all in desperate need of a quick contrast / level adjustment..

    Look what a difference 5 seconds in PS made:

    i wouldnt consider these landscape shots, i would consider these shooting a picture of some land from a car. Sorry but all 4 do nothing for me. I see you have a tree in a field, is that your subject? If so why? Everything just looks eh.. Sorry man, keep trying, i would suggest try shooting something interesting. Like if you are outside and see something beautiful try to capture it. But even if i was where you were and saw it in real life, i wouldnt think it was beautiful.

    Yeah not much going for any of them...Try some post processing in PS - Good luck!
     
  17. Good attempts, however the scenes are somewhat lackluster... I'm puzzled by landscape, I don't believe much of it is really captured in nature, but more so in post processing.

    I didn't process any of those shots. They're all straight from my camera? Or do you mean landscape shots SHOULD be made more in post processing...

    i think he means he's not a fan of landscape because its not really about the scene but the post processing.

    i like the second one, only thing i would change is shift the frame to get the whole tree on the left.

    at any rate if you like them then its all good :wiggle:

    I like trees in fields. And on hills. Just not these ones.
