- Photos you have taken in the last month of which you are proud?
So many good pictures on here. I’m really going to have to up my game !
The pictures you’ve posted here are very nice and I can see what I think you also saw in taking them. They could easily be made even better with a bit of post production work. Nothing drastic; I’m not a fan of creating artifice (though impressionism is just fine, it’s not the same as artifice in my view).
The first and second picture in particular would benefit from an increase in contrast. If you have Lightroom or an equivalent, try adding a classic ‘s curve’ in the tone pannel. A google search for ‘s curve lightroom’ will give you many tutorials. Also add a graduated filter to the landscape shot to bring the exposure down on the sky.
I wouldn’t say I was particlarly pleased with this shot, but since I am quick to post candid street portraits of others, it seems only fair to post one of me.
As candid street portraits go, I was however quite pleased with this one:

Maybe for the first time on this thread I know where someone’s photos are taken. AlexSimon’s, heading towards slippery stones and Stanege edge descent if I’m not mistaken. I’ve got a day’s tutorial in the Peak(s) sometime this Spring, so I might be able to post something decent after then.Posted 3 years ago

After seeing so many pictures of the Christmas Wheel etc in Edinburgh I liked this neglected part of the whole scheme.
And another couple, the Train Station shot made it on the BBC Website that day.

All taken with my phone so not up to the standard of some here. This is my favourite thread. <big hugs/>Posted 3 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
How do you make these posts so that you can click for a bigger picture? Ta
I just get the same image path and put it in a URL around the img code.
So at the moment you’ve got
[ img ]http://path1[ /img ]
You end up with
[ url=http://path1 ][ img ]http://path1[ /img ][ /url ]
Otherwise get some bbcode from your hosting site.Posted 3 years ago
Not at all Seavers, always happy to get feedback.
Yes i know what you mean, and a crop can pull the eye in to what you want people to concentrate on.
The camera produces square images, and a little game i play with myself is to try and compose them in such a way that i don’t need to do any post production or cropping after they are developed and scanned.
I expect i could have framed it closer but i do like the weight that the left hand side shadow gives.
Another consideration is that they are for a project and if i do crop it’s never away from a square.
Had you noticed that in the cropped photo you posted the colours and white glow of the tiles has also changed?
The bathroom and this one were taken with a camera that has no light meter and i had left my hand held at work.
I had to estimate exposure using the sunny 16 rule, the one below could have done with a bit more but not bad as it was a very contrasty scene.
It’s an interesting exercise, turn the LCD off if using a digital camera, don’t look at the light meter, estimate the exposures then look at them later.
