The cropped version is a big improvement and makes it into a much more purposeful composition! I like it! I’m with @rmadaris in finding the jet contrail in the first photo distracting. But even if it hadn’t been there the horizontal crop still works better because it eliminates all that empty space in the sky and focuses on what is interesting in…[Read more]
Make sure the seller has a good return policy in case you’re not satisfied. eBay is pretty good about fighting for you if the item is not as described. But there’s always a risk. Keep in mind that pictures can be deceiving even if they are of the exact product you’re purchasing. Several years ago I purchased a lens from an eBay seller and altho…[Read more]
I have no experience with either of those lenses so I am not even going to attempt to speak to the issue of the comparisons in their quality. But if you’re looking for a wide angle for landscapes I think you would find that 16mm isn’t going to be much better than the 18mm that you currently have. I use a 12-24mm quite a bit for landscapes and I f…[Read more]
An iconic but difficult-to-photograph location in the mountains of West Virginia! Restricted access makes it difficult to get real creative. @jamesstaddon I know you’ve photographed this location, so if you get to this in the webinar maybe you can share some thoughts as to how you would approach the unique challenges that it presents.
Very nice! I like how you have the mountains and trees framed. It would have been nice if you could have captured the boat just a little sooner while it was just to the left of center to give the appearance of coming into the frame instead of going out. Also if there was anything around to give you a higher vantage point, it would have created a…[Read more]
Hi Hannah! A couple of things stand out. First of all make sure the horizon is level. This is especially important when photographing the ocean! Secondly I see your ISO is at 1600 and your shutter speed is at 1/4000. This means that you had plenty of light to be able to lower that ISO way down and improve the image quality while still maintaining…[Read more]
That’s a beautiful shot! The composition is nice, although I would like to see more space along the bottom and left sides so as to include the entire flower and give it a little “breathing room” around the edges. The real problem I see is the fact that the main subject, the butterfly, is so much darker than the rest of the image. Perhaps you could…[Read more]
You’re welcome! Glad it’s working for you!
I’m assuming that you have inadvertently clicked on the icon for the before and after comparison mode. Notice the area I’ve circled on the attached photo. The two “Y’s” denote the before and after mode which will show your photo in two separate windows, one for the original photo and one for the edite…[Read more]
