This is a TRIAL THREAD to see if some of us want to have some feed back for an image. The rules are the same as for PAD. PLEASE POST ONLY ONE (1) PHOTO PER 24HRS* in this thread.
As a courtesy we ask that you keep your photos to under 640 pixels on the longest side. If you post a photo that is much larger than 640 pixels then it will be deleted from the thread. You can have your smaller photo link to a larger version but the embedded photos must be less than 640 pixels. If you need help on how to post a photo read through the Forum Rules & FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) thread for help on how to post a photo.
IMPORTANT: The purpose of this thread is to offer suggestions for those who have a desire to hear others input. After a period of time this thread will be evaluated and if it is helpful to Nikon folks, it may be kept
... and to me the picture is not too busy it is just the nature of the subject.
Unless there is an obvious technical error, I am not sure I can see the advantage of these type of critique threads. Does anyone here really care whether I like or don't like someone's photograph? What makes me think that my opinion (and that's all that will be posted) is noteworthy in any sense?
But lets be honest, technical errors are pretty easy to spot. It is just that I have not seen too many on this forum.
What I would like to suggest is something a little different but, in my opinion (DOH!) would be more useful is for the photographer to post a picture and then have the photographer comment on their own photograph. Telling us what their intent was, what problems did they have, how they mitigated the problems, and most importantly, what would they have done differently if they were to reshoot this photograph.
MsMoto, why the hell did you take a fisheye shot of some motor?????
Well, you probably had a very good reason and I would be interested in learning about it. It might even peak my interest in fisheye photography.
Understanding the photographic process that happens before the shutter is pushed, I feel, is an important part of photography and one not addressed well in a lot of books.
We have some really good photographers on this site who take really good photographs. This is probably not an accidental coincidence. I would personally find it helpful to get further insight into what the photographer was intending and what actually happened.
I like the family at the beach class. What's wrong with that one?
I like the idea of the shot. Did you take a few alternatives from different angles or positions?
I like yours too. I like how the picture captured the moment. It might have been better if the person picking up shells was at a slightly different angle.
@donaldejose - perfect except for the 2-legged butt alien that photo bombed it Personally I would see if you had a shot just before or after and merge the two sides together in photo shop. It would be a lot of work, but well worth it. It's a great shot in the moment for sure!
I love this video from Scott Kelby - very long, but really shows what it takes to get one good image. For anyone who really wonders how and why some photographers are great - this will show that they don't take snapshots.
@Donaldejose: Please remove that figure that is bending down - it is very unflattering. It is almost a good shot with people making different shapes, but not quite.
Do you mean like this:
@ToaTeRajed Good video, nice to someone putting words on what we do instinctively.
Here is mine of Malmo
How could I edit it better?
It's more of a personal preference but I would probably frame or crop the picture a lot tighter, maybe even in vertical format.
