Very good PP.
Not really diggin them. PP seems kinda "omg i got photochop and read some online tutorials", mostly too dark, the b/w conversion is just grey, and I'm never a fan of artificial and overbearing vignetting.
Not a fan of the PP I hear. I used downloaded presets on most of them which I modified a bit.
Anyway, here's the original straight from the cam (just resized).
not really diggin them much either
how does that pertain to my opinions of your photos?
So what's wrong with the pics? Boring subjects?
Personally I think both 9 & 10 are pretty cool
PP'd to look like half-life 2. i kinda like it.
i like 5 and the non edited 8
I like the PP in #7. Looks very Lomo.
Work on your levels and curves a bit more.
#4 Get lower to the street might make the shot more interesting...
#1 kinda boring... mix it up in post a bit mayhap?
I really like 3, the perspective with all the lines and shadows is pretty sweet.
I also like 9 a lot, I prolly woulda stepped like a few inches to the right so that the other column framing the door in the background was in the picture and then maybe lighten the shadow a touch so that you can read the In Memoriam a little easier (then probably lighten the ones on the wing so they all match on the statue)
I mean...how dare you lol me for being married at 23...
Can you adjust them in Lightroom or do I have to use Photoshop for that?
Maybe it looks better b&w?
lol, I didn't even notice the door until you mentioned it
Lighten the shadow a touch sounds like a good idea. Thanks.
I get the impression that OTAP think most of these pics are over-ppd, amirite?
#1 might work better in bw, as far as #10 being fail... it has no context. The better shot, #9 gives you a sense of context and placement, where as #10 just seems to be a random shallow DoF shot of a statue, with no hint as to what or where it is. It has no emotional feeling. The mausoleum (or whatever it is) and the visible banner the angel is carrying lends a touch of placement and feeling where the full on profile shot does not.
Some are over done, i.e. #2 you should have kept a little lighter, or gone full on B&W with it. the stark contrasts, and added vignetting makes it difficult to look at, though the composition and subject does have some interesting points. Throwing a sepia tone, or toning your pictures just for the sake of playing with PS isn't really helping your images any.
the lines in three are kind of cool I guess
Did a new edit for # 9
& here's another one I didn't post before. Just thought the shadows from the trees were kinda cool.
just wanted to compare side by side.
that last one is nice... retouch the black and white, bring the blacks up a bit more perhaps, to bring up the road and it's gold. as far as #9... i'm a bigger fan of the original pp that you did.
