PostSubject: Critique Thread   Sun Jan 02, 2011 10:46 pm

First topic message reminder :

Basically a place for people to post pictures that they think are good (or not so good), and for everybody else to tear them apart with brutal criticism.
None of that pansy "Oh, the colors are nice and I like what you're doing here, but the toning could use some work. It's still a good shot though!"
In here, we're looking for our shots to be torn to shreds full of solid advice. No just plain beat downs (ie 'd00d ur ph0t0 sucksorz trololol'). Stuff more like "Composition needs a lot of work, it's way too centered and framing throws it all off. Toning is way off, I'd bet that would look better with warmer tones. DOF is super narrow, stop down a bit so you can get more in focus."

We want this to be a place to get help with photos and learn how to put more thoughts into our work, not just point and shoot.


Rules:
  • One photo posted at a time
  • There should be at least one, preferably two critiques for each photo before the next is posted
  • You can provide critique and a new picture in the same post
  • Constructive, in depth criticism is a lot better, so please put some thought into it
  • If there is stuff you already know is bad with your photo, put that in with the post so people don't keep retouching that subject.
  • Post photos at preferably 500byXXX or 640byXXX resolution so people can see detail about what they're critiquing. If posting at 500byXXX or smaller, provide a link to larger resolutions.

I can't think of anymore currently, but if I do then I'll add to them. The more people that contribute the better!

I'll start with one of my favorite photos, but I do think I could have a touch more light on the back of the legs so they don't blend with the trees so much.

@Otto I don't really know what you could do to make it better but you could angle it a bit more so you see the landing. But overall great photo.

The aperture on that is just a bit to small, I dont really like how its small the focus area is. but thats just me. I like the composition though.

Yeah I thought that as well, I didn't really notice how much depth of field there was until I had a look on my computer. Thanks

@Alec Try to back up more and show where the riding is landing or just the coping. Also, it could've used better focus on the rider and better timing.

From the weekend, liked it a lot, but something about it seems to be off. Maybe composition? Not sure.

It does look a bit off, i'm not quite what it could be. Maybe its the composition (could be a bit lower) or maybe its the busy background or lighting.

Ya, I think it might be the rock and closer tree in the back. Update: @Blake Mhm, too much headroom.

Corey if you were standing above the rider, maybe with a wide angle or fisheye it might liven up the picture? Smile

@Blake: I really dig the silhouette and colors that are in that shot. Try lighten up the overall image and (if you use Lightroom) play with the black scaling. After that and maybe playing with the saturation, it should have some beautiful colors in there!

@coreywakeman: No big deal but I'm pretty sure the forum rules say to post one picture at a time and to wait until the picture before yours to be critiqued. As for the photos, both seem to have boring subjects and composition. Personally I really don't like photos taken on floors, flat surfaces where there is the small line of focus (although in some cases they come out well). I would recommend playing with the editing more, to get interesting temperature and split tones. On the second one, I like the concept but the bubbles on the right are annoying. I would try to show more of the side walk as a diagonal line across the top left of the picture.

Hahah that's really awesome, contrasts on the top clouds are great. Only thing that I can find wrong is the paintbrush lines around the center are very visible.

Thanks, I don't know how you found a paintbrush line because I didn't even use anything like that for the edit haha.
