First Photo Post
I am new to the forum, so hopefully I'm doing this correctly. This is my first topic posting a photo, and would surely like to hear your opinions about it . I used my Canon 600D with a 18-55mm IS II lens. The settings, if I remember them correctly, were aperture f11, shutter speed 1/125 and the ISO was 640.
Hope you like it
I think its a nice image. Composition and settings are right. Even though i miss some intrest in it. I was looking to it like, okay, right .... Nice instead of WOW...
Maybe you should leave it in color... Maybe that will work out? Can you try that?
It's a nice shot; I like it. I do agree with Roy though that it seems to be missing the wow factor. The composition is good and the exposure is correct.
I think it is missing a person. Often these images work best when there is a person walking away in the distance/ middle-ground of the photo.
I would also dodge and burn the photo subtly just to add a bit more interesting light in places if you could. Otherwise, it is a nice photo and it is a scene that might look well as an infrared photo if you are into that.
Keep it up.
I have just thought of something. You should try zooming in to just include the trees in the centre and the walkway. By removing some of the clutter to the sides of the trees, I think it would be a much stronger image. Try to include a person next time too. Good job overall though; of the two, the colour looks better to me.
Even though.. i miss something like a subject, either a car, person, animal or what ever.
Overal, i think this is a good shot. I will not burn this one down because i like it
Glad you both liked the original photo in colour Roy and Conor . I see that it adds some "wow factor" to the photo now with the colours, as it calls your attention to the photo more than just in black and white. I'll keep in mind your suggestion of adding a subject to these kind of photos, always learning!
Personally, I think the cropped one is a visually stronger image and would look great with a person in it.
Keep up the good work Tom and thanks for posting your work.
