    this is your warning. stop trolling this forum or you will be banned. there is a difference between commenting on a picture and doing what you are doing.

    In pic 1 I was using the polarizer, and I'm still a n00b with it, and the second one, it was nearly 830pm, and was getting dark...and I was freehanding. Stupidly, I forgot my tripod. :hs:

    Dont like the first one's angle or the sky....

    Second one sky is all sorts of fucked up and noisy and over exposed

    Same for the next one. Dont like its composition that much. if it was just that old boat in the back it would look nice

    Last one is too warm for my taste.

    Your green is still completely weird.

    I think you need to stop playing around with color balance so much

    Can you post pics from before post processing?

    Composition isnt bad but you still have an issue with noise. What ISO are you using?

    this has nothing to do with him having a thing against you, its my thing against you. like you said, if you "hate his pictures" then stay out of his thread
     
  12. If supernova wanted to be constructive he could have said, what I'm about to say.


    TGB's pics are beginning to become more and more boring the more he posts them because they are frequently of the same thing and every time he posts pics he has around 10-20 pics. :hs: I know I shoot mostly cars and girls but I don't post every car/girl picture I've ever taken on offtopic because they aren't very exciting sometimes.

    But I do have to admit I like alot of TGB's pics they're starting to become more and more boring as of late. Also I like the first pic but the top of the bridge is cropped too tight and some of the wires have been chopped off.

    As others have said what ISO are you using? You pictures are frequently rather noisy.

    GRR I had my iso at 1600 for the first while. I was taking moon pics the night before and managed to forget to reset the iso. :hs:

    Powerlines -- I was always told that powerlines are evil, so I tried to remove as much of them as possible. :hs:

    Here are the original pics, resized only, not retouched in any way:
    My first lesson - leave color balancing alone. :)

    I may also have to get my sensor cleaned of dust - there may be some on it.

    You should be able to shoot down around 200-400 during the day without any problem. The white balance looks alot better in this set of shots. Bring down the ISO next time and youll be in business

    Better for sure, make sure you turn that ISO down, nothing like ruining a pic b/c you leave it up to hi on accident
