    Quite chuffed with this one from today looking down from Rivington on a snowy fat bike ride.

    I’m no critic, but it simply makes me smile; it’s got so much happiness in it. (My interpretation, etc etc)

    I’ll take a positive emotional response from an honest person than a bucket load of even positive rubbish from a critic any day of the week.

    Back on Xmas day, walking on the beach at Arnside.

    So many good pictures on here. I’m really going to have to up my game !

    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.

    The Thin Grey Line

    As candid street portraits go, I was however quite pleased with this one:

    nothing like the standard on here, but I like this. taken with a crap camera phone.

    Thanks for the advice geetee. I will admit that post production is my weak spot, so it’s going to be something to work on this year.

    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.
    Keep me inspired ’till then.

    Took this whilst out riding on Saturday. Sadly this was just on my phone – would have liked it a bit better but still might have a play in Photoshop later…

    How do you make these posts so that you can click for a bigger picture? Ta

    There isn’t much to look at in this picture, but I really like it because it captures a really simple moment between mum, dad and their son. It’s perfectly ‘candid’; no staging, posing, no artifice. Just a family.

    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/>

    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.

    @AlexSimon: that second shot is a cracker.

    If you only look at one picture of a three year old photobombing another three year old today, make it this one:

    Hopefully you won’t my suggestion rude but I reckon a different crop makes a big difference in drawing the viewers eye to the subject matter.

    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.

    Another iPhone sojournal snap. End of day – Malvern Link:

    And a chance to try out the RX100 + Autostitch. Pen-y-Fan w lenticular cloud:

    Is that the in camera panorama function? Hasn’t done a bad job keeping the exposure consistent across the frame. Usually you can see the joins by small variances in exposure.

    Is that the in camera panorama function?

    No, joined three (fixed exposure) frames in Autostitch app then cropped. Normally have to revert to manual stitch as it usually messes something up, but this worked out well considering.

    Bit experimental. Not sure, quite like them but they could be just naff.

    Needed to get out of the office for a pootle about and to play with my EOS-M and 22mm lens. So I thought I’d try to capture the colour, vibrancy and sheer joie de vivre of my local area.

    Welcome to Didcot.

    @ redthunder – delightful place Severn Beach innit?

    This isn’t a recent pic and I probably put it on here before – this was taken on my one and only foray to SB

    That’s the most imaginative view of the Severn Bridge I’ve ever seen. Nice job.
