8/10 - the yellow building really does something for me in terms of mood. Almost Stanley-Kubrick-like. However there seems to be too much going on in the shot. Perhaps if you had just focused on the yellow building?

9/10 - Nice, how are you "tiling" your shots like that exactly?
I actually scrolled your photo to crop the plastic thing off

What do you mean by "tiling"?

Good stuff guys.

Last photo: Excellent! 9/10.. maybe a bit dark but tons of detail... maybe a bit too sharp but at the same time that is what I like about it... great pic.

Was that with the 10-22mm? That lens is incredibly sharp.
Actually I can't take credit for the placement of the pigs, just the composition (hope you like the diagonal lines formed by the pig noses and pillow corners!). I shot that photo through a shop window in some part of Chinatown in San Francisco. All the photos I've posted so far were shot with the Canon EF-S 17-55 f2.8. One of my fav lenses ever. I don't have it anymore since I switched to the 5DII.

BTW - the quality of shots in this thread is quite impressive in a number of cases!

I thought that you had repeated the pigs in Photoshop somehow, giving that "tiled" look, but that seems ridiculous now that I think about it, forget I asked, temporary loss of cognitive thought.

Actually it's with the 28-135mm USM IS, which is actually not too bad at 28mm (which this shot is at). And I agree, whenever I look at this shot I sometimes think that I went a bit haywire with the unsharp mask, but I am a sharpness junky and hate softness! And I also agree about the slight darkness, but I was having a tough time getting the snow to expose properly while retaining enough contrast to show the foot prints, and I partially succeeded but the snow stll looks a tad gray.

^ 10/10 Phenomenal! you guys are taking out your aces now aren't you...

Sti, I wish I had more control over my DoF... for that I would have to buy a new camera which I can't right now. All the stuff I am posting is with my P&S Canon A630. I would get a D90 and be happy, or a GH1, but probably would prefer getting a 5D with L series primes and a Tokina 11-16mm f2.8... though I might be getting something completely different. It is hard to say... right now they are not a possibility and I have to pay for developing film or be happy with my A630.

GoneTomorrow, the way he "tilted" that photo was by setting up the camera above and to the left of the subject, then panning right and tilt down. Have you tried creating a mask and changing the blend mode for the snow?

On this one I wish I had the duck a tad further along to the right. I should do it but there is so much detail on the water that I'd go insane working at full resolution being so OCD.

9/10 - excellent perspective. Thats what this photo is all about. BTW - right on about the "tilting". It should also be noted that this photo was taken with a longer focal length (55mm in this case).

Here is one from my travels to Italy ... nothing is "plain" in this country, not even the entrance to the car-park.

8.5/10 you love dark spirals huh? Like me and power poles I love Yellow and black... great combination. Are you saying that this photo was taken with a 55mm?!?


On this one I think I could have done better if I had live view, higher clean ISOs... but I can't keep complying and have to work with what I have available.

10/10 - Great textures and light, I really get the "descending into darkness" feeling from this one. I also like the contrast of the yellow railing against the darkness. All natural light, or was there any flash used?

EDIT: Beat me to it. For yours, 7/10. Nice framing, but I can see some noise in the sky, and I think this same view would be a good candidate for a dark silhouette look, with the trees completely dark against the starry sky.

Looks like I posted before you and you were rating Sti's spiral.

8.5/10 Above photo is great... I think it would be phenomenal full size printed or at least full screen... I would maybe add a tad of contrast on the trees sky and mountain below for the smaller sizes... ? Though I love tons of info, seemed sharpened, but maybe just a bit tonally flat.

Smoke rolling in from the LA fires:

Yes, I'm disturbed. I actually have a name for this photo "inverted vertigo" - ok I've said too much Actually this one was taken at 17mm. It was the pig taken at 55m (enjoying both ends of the 17-55's spectrum!)
