    OTAP is a little slow today and I finally have some time on my hands, so I've decided to post some pictures from my trip to Taiwan in January. This was my first time trying travel photography so let me know what I've done right and what I've done wrong. And I know that I have a lot of blown highlights.

    16 would be badass if the building was more in focus rather than the tree, and it wasn't so overexposed. :o

    11 & 13 the composition is tight, though 11 could use just a bit more contrast

    14 & 15 are both strong all around, though not mind blowing.

    16 overexposed

    18, needs post, the city beyond the overhang is completely blown out.

    20 :bowdown:

    21 Sky's blownout, run it through PS and it should clean up nice.

    3 I think a deeper DoF would have worked better for this one, but that's purely subjective.

    1 no subject.

    5 all of your potential subjects have their backs to the camera.

    I like 13 a lot. It definitely comes across as more natural than the other vendor shots that look posed.
    16 would be sick, but like Girth said, oof and overexposed.

    I never considered making the building as the main subject... it makes sense for travel photography. I'll remember that for future trips.

    Thanks for the c&c :bigthumb:

    I like almost all of them. But some of them needs some pp.

    Nice shots. I really like 21. If you could make the sky so it wouldn't be blown out it would be way better.
