The wide angle is great for landscapes because it allows you to include close foreground elements. I don’t know what camera you have, but mine is a crop sensor (DX in Nikon lingo) with a 1.5X crop factor. So theoretically, the 12mm for me should be equivalent to 18mm with a full frame. @jamesstaddon and I did a... Read More »

Nice shot, she’s a beauty! I’m no expert on car pictures, in fact I don’t think I’ve ever gone out of my way to shoot cars. Here are just my thoughts anyways, so take with a grain of Himalayan Pink salt! 😉 My gut would be to get a little lower down so the car would block a bit more of the... Read More »

@dan-cope Thank you!! I never would have thought of using a zoom of 12-24mm but I could see where it would be a good lens to carry! @SarahLeePhoto Thank you, Sarah! God gets all praise for any “fantasticness” in the photo. It’s His beautiful creation! 🙂 Yes, I was thinking the 70-200 too as I always... Read More »

Fantastic photo Rachel! I personally like having a zoom lens for nature photography, and the Canon f/2.8 28-70mm has been fairly versatile for what I’ve done in the past. However, it is quite heavy so it may not be great for a hike. 🙂 Read More »

Thanks @ James Staddon Thanks for the link @Dan Cope, that would be helpful if ever I start doing photoshop. We have Elements but almost never use it. (maybe we should..) This is not technically hdr but perhaps a kind of pseudo-hdr through agressive tone curves. I’ve given it a shot in PSE; here is a first try... Read More »

Opportunity: Concept of "lasting" or "strength"

We’ve got an opportunity from Inertia Media this time! And it’s a very time sensitive one. • Requester: Inertia Interactive Media Inc. • Request: Images that portray the concept of “lasting”, “strength”, or “long-term outlook” that feel like they are from the state of... Read More »

By the looks of your photo, you did good with the 35mm! I’m not very familiar with Canon lenses, but for my Nikon, I have a 12-24mm zoom that I really like for landscape photography. Only being able to go to 24mm definitely has it’s limitations so I usually carry other lenses with me, but I think if I was... Read More »

What Lens for the Mountains?
I have a photo for critiquing and a question so I’m not sure if I’m posting in the right spot?! I just returned from the Rocky Mountains and this was the first time going since I took up photography(when there, I came to the realization I have a LOT to learn about nature photography! 😮 ) I found a zoom...

Ferrari 599 GTO

Ferrari 599 GTO
Hi, my name is Joshua Ong and I was on the Photo Critique forum not too long ago. I’ve enclosed a picture of a Ferrari 599 GTO and I’m asking for any comments on this picture. I would like to know what is the best angle for taking a sports car and what the aperture value should be like for such a picture. Where... Read More »

Reply To: Any Tips on Moon Photography?

Just thought I’d let y’all know that this Sunday (27th) you will be able to see the total lunar eclipse better than at any other time in 33 years. It coincides with a “supermoon.” A supermoon looks 14 percent bigger because it appears closer to the horizon. So whatever hue of red the moon... Read More »

Why I Shoot for Excellence in Everything

Why I Shoot for Excellence in Everything
Sometimes I wish there was something more purposeful to shoot than the “flowers in my backyard”. And yet, if I do not know how to shoot my backyard with excellence, how can I expect (or be expected by others) to shoot with excellence things that are more important? Regardless of where I am, regardless of what I’m... Read More »
