Very creative! I like the effect of peering through the leaves. Makes it vibrant and colorful. I think I like the brighter one. Maybe just add a slight vignette. I also like how the elements surrounding the flowers almost create circles around the flowers.
@morganwriter1gmail-com, it’s most likely the quality of your camera sensor plus your exposure. There are ways to make the most of the problem when you understand some things about “color channels”. This article explains what I mean: http://www.earthboundlight.com/phototips/red-flowers-red-blobs.html
One-hour photo places like Walmart and Walgreens will turn out strange colors regardless of how your screen is calibrated.
If you really want to get good printing, find a consistent printer (at least a place that specializes in printing).
If you don’t want to get the calibrating kit, try running some test prints (at a consistent printer!) and…[Read more]
Hi @modestyl! I’m SOOOO sorry no one has replied to your question! Evidently, there aren’t many folks on here who have any experience with building a portfolio. 🙂
I’m just returning from some travels and finally getting around to sorting through questions from non-PRO folks so….sorry for my delay in responding as well.
First, do you still…[Read more]
Spotless petals! That always helps enhance the beauty of a flower photo.
The first thing that comes to mind is the tonal values. If the photo was grayscale, there would be very little contrast between the rose and the background. While there is contrast in color, it would certainly look better if there was contrast in tonal value as…[Read more]
Back to the initial question, @rmadaris, you can see what in your profile is visible to the public by logging OUT of your account and then going to https://www.lenspiration.com/members/%5Byourhandle%5D/ (which in this case would be https://www.lenspiration.com/members/rmadaris/). This is what the public sees of your profile.
You are correct in saying…[Read more]
there was a cow out on the road, so we slowed way down
First photo looks unprocessed.
Second photo: on the screen that I’m viewing your photos on, I’d say the greens look great. The blues in the sky look a little overdone, but I like seeing some kinda pinkish in the clouds.
What bothers me more about the photo is how bright the…[Read more]
I think you’ve got stuff to work with here.
Layers – foreground shadow, dramatic sunlight on field, a row of trees and the beautifully textured sky beyond
Subject – You’ve got the gnarly bright branches on the right and the bright trunk of the tree on the leftish….I’d make one or the other the “subject”
Depth – You’ve got a nice tree on the…[Read more]
I had one other shot from the same scene that might address the concern…or it might not. What do you think?
Perhaps. It’s not as engaging for some reason. Perhaps the lack of framing? The log too dark to draw enough attention? Or perhaps it’s because I’ve already been “wowed” by the first shot….
Wonder about taking out log e…
Hey, just wanted to let you know @dfrazer, I believe that the cause of the issue you mentioned has been identified and resolved today! Lenspiration should now be keeping exif data on uploaded pictures.
I wasn’t exactly sure what to think about these photos when I saw them the first time….an epic place, that’s for sure! But there certainly is a lot of lens flare too!
Here are my comments on how I would solve that problem, plus my answers to your questions about composition and landscape photography:…[Read more]
