You are the wind beneath my ears. (video)
These are close to two of the very best photographs you have taken thus far. (You're in the golden hour with these shots and that is when the light is at play).Next time, don't center the sun. Remember the rule of thirds! (GOOGLE IT!)The top one, cropped properly, would be a very good photograph.Congratulations on your progress.
Look closely at the top photograph.Now (in your minds eye) move yourself 100 feet to the right, so that the sun is just beneath the boughs of the large tree center.Now, place that tree at the 1/3'd mark vertical and 2/3ds mark horizontal.That's framing would have made this a spectacular shot.
I don't agree that these are two of the best, Ham. She's taken lots of great photos. The ones of the classic cars come to mind.
I think this framing demonstrates the "rule of thirds" well:http://img821.imageshack.us/img821/9728/bettercropping2.jpgNow, imagine if you had moved yourself (and your camera) to the right, and framed the sun just below the large tree)!
Everyone wants to be a critic...
"Everyone wants to be a critic..."Some of us just want to offer insights on how slight improvements can dramatically effect the emotional appeal of a photograph.That's how photographers learn from each other and improve their craft.
Noice. Say, did you chance look at the Fall Leaves photo challenge posted on Gizmodo yesterday? Huh? Well, did you? ANSWER ME! Some of them are assume, I mean awesome. Fall Leaves Wallpapers here.Same thing in different ordered Flickr photo set here.I thought you might be interested on account of being a photographer yourself.
Chip Ahoy; thanks for sharing.Every season has its own unique beauty. wv: flicl.
Professor, do you have a little backpack that can relieve the weight of your Nikon plus a few lenses? I have one but it's big and bulky. Hardly the thing to take a-wandering along the mountain track. And as as you go, you love to sing the bulky thing on your back:Valderi chorus: ValderiValdera chorus: ValderaValderi chorus: Valderi(all) Valdera-ha-ha-ha-ha-haValderi, valderaThe knapsack on your back.
RH, sweet vid. I like how at least twice she catches a scent on the wind. Did you have her in a sitstay? Hmmm?
sit-stayNo, she's on her own.
Love the top photo, Professor. Just gorgeous. Since the sun isn't centered, you can get a pass on the 'thirds' rule.Now, about you starting a 'vanity' press for your photos. For example, I'd love to choose 12 photos for a calendar.
Ah. That's surprising. So sweet.
Sunset on the cusp of winter. One feels a chill in the soul just looking at it.
I lost my phone over the weekend.. luckily I had insurance.. they delivered a replacement (even better than the one I had) earlier today.Amazing speed considering I only reported it yesterday.
Nice! On Wisconsin!
Anyone else see lonewacko got insta-dissed?
Chip, those Gizmodo photos are incredible. Thanks for linking!
"That's how photographers learn from each other and improve their craft."Agreed, Ham, and would add that is true for writing, painting and any skill really. Unfortunately, not everyone is open to giving or accepting honest feedback.I belong to an artists' group where that is the stated objective - give and get feedback from your fellow artists - yet that is rarely what happens unless comments like "wonderful" and "lovely" are considered constructive feedback these days.The insightful comments usually come in one-on-one side conversations. My assumption is that most people think that's the polite thing to do, but it sure cuts down on a tremendous amount of group learning.
There's something melancholy and fateful about these photos. A burning eye looking over a bleak valley. There'll be a showdown soon.
Man, these look like Hudson Valley School paintings or something.
The (enlarge photo) field plants are, I believe, goldenrod, in late fall drag.
Professor, the second photo conveys winter perfectly for me here on Long Island, no snow but most times we don't get much snow. This perfect photo will stay on my desktop until spring starts to nudge the surface.Thanks much.
