Landscape - Tibet
I would like to critique them one by one, but you have to post them to the forum from out of flickr with your settings used, with a max of 5 images. Try to pick out your best images of the set and let them critiqued
But again, there are some nice in your set
I think the horses are little soft and I would crop the shadowed section if the foreground out, I think it's distracting
I like the the composition but looks a little soft as well
This one looks really nice, I would probably crop the dirt out of the foreground.
This is the winner out of the lot, I really like the composition it almost looks like a painting. Just curious did you add any saturation to get the grass? that golden color?
Second best pic in the group, looks really nice. The only change I might suggest would be to crop the foreground and get rid some or all the rocks, I think it makes a stronger image, they seem a little distracting to me.
I hope you don't think I'm being harsh, just trying to share an honest opinion
you are right, some of the pic do look soft. It happens to many of my pictures, don't know if it is because of the leans or my skill.
for Pic 1, I did try to crop out the shadow in the foreground, but I find I like the cropping I posted here better. just personal opinion.
For Pic 4, I did not add saturation to the grass. It was a time of sunset, everything was lit in red. here is the one before retouching.
Thank you again.
I hope this helps a little, I've got a lens I have to send in to Canon. It can be very frustrating trying to figure out what's going on
It is a USM L leans. Soft focus happens to my 24-105mm too, but not all the times. These two lenses are not very sharp lenses,and I usually do focusing and recomposing using the center focusing point , that could also create the problem some time.
