    Didn't do much processing, when I'm done they'll be better. One is a flower growing out in my backyard and the other is downtown pittsburgh, I just got back from my wife's grandmother's house and took this after brunch. It's like eight images stitched together.

    Thanks for the useful critique jerkass. Perhaps you should comment on I don't know, composition and shit instead of just some smartass reply. Show me some of your work oh god of photography.

    Here's the same flower with some processing.

    Seriously, though. Every single forum I visit is filled with flower shots. It's hard to critique on... flowers.

    But if you want it - your contrast, sharpness and color is good, just pick other another subject.

    The panaroma shot looks good - I would've jumped the fence to take the photo to avoid the fence being in the shot.

    I do automotive photography - no one in this forum wants to see pics of cars. Plus it's hard to get good shots since the cars are usually packed close together so you get reflections that ruin the shot, along with people, bad back drops, etc.

    2 pics from a local show today (bad back drop, reflections of spectators, etc):

    If he's talking about the first picture, I think the appropriate response should have been "slow shutter :rolleyes:"

    I take no credit whatsoever for the stitching. That's all autostitch, google it, it's free and it's AMAZING. You just need to make sure you take the pictures correctly so that it can do it's work right. Those were all taken with my Nikon D70 with a Nikkor 18-70 f3.5/5.6 at 18mm f/3.5 1000 with exposure lock turned on and a circular polarizer attached. I THINK it was eight or nine images, I'm not sure. I tried using photomerge in photoshop but it sucks donkey nuts compared to autostitch.

    An Derrict, sorry for being a cock, I was in a horrible mood last night, had just gotten home from a five hour road trip with a two month old in the car to find some fuckstick parked in my parking spot. So I had to unpack everything and walk it a fucking block back to my house. I left him a nice note on his car. "This is a reserved spot you fucking cocksucker, I hope your wife dies from aids".

    It was a client looking at a house for sale across the street :) I doubt he'll be buying, heh.

    He quoted all 3.
     
  20. :rofl: good job :coolugh:
     

  21. holy fuck 6 seconds? :confused: what iso?
     
  22. :mamoru: At a car show 6 seconds is like 6 minutes :mamoru: It never fails, you have your camera on a tripod facing a car and you click the shutter hoping no one will come by... But there's always that asshole who sees you standing there with your camera on a tripod facing the car who decides "humm... let me check out this car to fuck up this guys' picture" :o

    ISO 200, f/10

    I could've gotten the shutter speed down to ~ 2-3 seconds by shooting at ISO 400 or 800 and f/5.6 but I wanted more DOF and a longer shutter speed to make sure I got plenty of crowd movement.

    You know how bad the lighting is at HIN events; I have some shots that were 10 seconds in the poorly lit corners.

    Random person #1 and #2 ruined a good shot :(
