Does nobody like my tight crops? biggrin.gif




6/10... I don't like the tight crop biggrin.gif... and there's too much blank space at the top of the picture. A classic example where simple rule of thirds would have made for a much nicer shot wink.gif

Nice macro... I'd have preferred a little tighter crop , and probably angled it to lead the eye from bottom left to top right, with an even shallower DOF... 8/10

2 ratings dependent on the situation.
If the skin tone dof her left cheek is yellowed due to steps taken during post processing, 7/10, If the skin tone is yellow because that is yellow makeup on her face, then 8/10Even though this one is a tight crop, the negative space on the bottom left does help the picture, however I do not like how the hair just seems to melt into this space.

8.5/10—cool shot robchaos! I'm curious, can you share a bit about the lighting? It looks to me like this would have required a none-too-fast shutter speed and a bit of ISO boost. One thing I'd suggest is cropping out the dark pillar on the right edge. Possibly higher framing from a lower vantage point as well, not sure without seeing the location but a possibility.

Just a snapshot, but here's one I grabbed a couple days ago:

^ 7/10
Think the colours are a bit dull and all the muddy ground on the bottom right is distracting me for some reason.

ISO 400, 1/25 sec exposure, f4.0, and a monopod to keep it steady enough.
updated my post with a cropped version. That was an abandoned warehouse attached to a paper mill, and the lighting inside was dim, but surprisingly even due to skylights evenly spaced above the top rafters on both sides of the buildings.

@TIGR 8/10, Nice picture, I'd just like a little more exposure for the silo, and the dark part at the bottom cropped out. A polarizer can help you get the subject properly exposed without overexposing the sky.

@RIAN 9/10. Nicely exposed fireworks shot. Looks good.
Shooting into the sun kills saturation and contrast, but this was cool, this guy was fishing about 20 feet from a dam. I didn't even know fish would be that close to something like that.

About the silo pic, I agree about cropping out the dark bit on the bottom. Rian, the right side is field is supposed to be muddy. The field is an important part of the atmosphere of the out-in-the-country photo. @robchaos, the exposure challenge with that shot wasn't the contrast between silo and sky so much as it was contrast on the silo itself. I didn't want to blow out the highlights on the silo. I was ok with the sky, otherwise would have gone with HDR.

To robchaos's picture: The composition is great, but i feel the background is a tad bit overexposed. 8.5/10

Here's my pet birdy. Orfa.

I have 2 of them, tell me which you think is better.



post #5360 of 10513
8/10... I think somewhere in between, or a HDR of the 2 would be best.

Is it an African grey?

It's all make-up. PP was minimal
