  • Hey Hannah! Great photo’s! These are really good! I really like these.

    – So, which photo’s should go on the front of a card and ideas on composition. πŸ™‚

    1. Personally, I like the third photo, I think it is the most clearly composed and “well groomed” photo. However it’s close second is the first photo. Personally, I think the second and the…[Read more]

    Hey Ryan! Man, this is a great photo! I have never personally been to Cades Cove but I looked it up on google maps and it looks wonderful!

    A couple things on your photo real quick, first off – What a great photo man! I am super impressed by the angle and the setting! Just a great photo in general!

    Technical Issues – I don’t understand what’s…[Read more]

  • Hey Dan! Thanks for taking time to look at the photo!

    1. “I think it would have been good to zoom in on the ice drops and isolated them more.” Great advice! I have no experience with working with photos like this so that advice is super appreciated!

    – Do you think that that level of zoom can be done still in editing? Or is that a kind of zoom…[Read more]

  • Hey all! So it recently snowed over at my house, and I went outside later in that day after the snow had semi-melted and then refrozen in an attempt to get some cool icy photo’s.

    While it wasn’t all that great outside other than cold, I did find a tree that had water that was currently freezing on it. I went back inside to get my camera and came…[Read more]

    ~ Mr. Staddon – Thank you for bringing this up on your webinar last night! So sorry I missed it. I appreciate you being so kind, I honestly thought this photo was pretty bad, but I am truly grateful for you looking at it!

    I have tried everything you advised, and I got rid of the line in the sky, (that was impressive I didn’t even see it to be…[Read more]

    Hey, thanks to all for the help and ideas.

    ~ Luke, thanks so much for editing the photo, I can see what you did. πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, there is still just too much lens flare to do anything with it. πŸ™‚ Plus, this was never a good photo, just one with an obvious problem that maybe I could understand how to fix better. However, I completely appreciate…[Read more]

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Orange Sunset in the forum Photo Critique 5 months, 1 week ago

    Hey Luke, absolutely man! Please go ahead and mess with it as you please. πŸ™‚

    I am excited to see what you do to it.

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Orange Sunset in the forum Photo Critique 5 months, 1 week ago

    Hey Luke! Thanks so much for taking time to look at the photo! Great Advice! I took a few minutes and worked with what I could on what you said.

    1. The tree! Great pointing that out! Unfortunately, that’s gonna require more of a photoshopping skill than I have. Due to how many branches there are, I can’t hit all of them to brighten then and it…[Read more]

  • Hey, so this is a photo that I took again while on a walk with a friend while on a walk down an old road during a sunset.

    It was very cool for several facts like the fact that I actually got a real lens flare. πŸ™‚

    Any advice on good/bad aspects on the photo would be appreciated.

    Camera Make: Canon
    Camera Model: Canon EOS REBEL SL1
    Lens Model:…[Read more]

  • No, I’m sorry I must have not been clear when I stated, my bad. The already apparent Lens flare is orange/yellowish if you look, then the bigger it gets it turns green colored. I am fine with the orange, I don’t want the green, how do I get rid of the green lens flare? How do I keep it just orange colored?

    I use an editing software for Mac…[Read more]

  • Ok, Thank you for the link, I think I understand… but just to clarify, why is it now green? I know about the lens flare, I purposefully incorporated that for the added effect.

    What I don’t understand is why it started orange and then went to a green color? Can someone please help me figure that out and how to fix it please?

  • Help! I don’t know what happened or how to remove it!

    So I was taking a photo today and saw this sunset and took some pictures of it, but it was too dark so I put on HDR to brighten the photo more. After turning HDR on I saw the horrible huge green circle!

    What happened?! Does anyone know how to remove this? Is this just a side effect of using…[Read more]

  • This is a photo that I took on a walk one day during an awesome sunset. I really liked this photo out of the few I took, so I took it into editing and worked around with it some. I came up with this as an end result, just curious to see what other people like/dislike about it. πŸ™‚

    F-Stop: F5.6
    Aperture: F5.7
    Focal Length: 18.0 mm

  • Hey thanks to everyone for all the advice! You guys are awesome!

    One thing Clara, first, thanks so much for taking time to look at stuff, your opinion is not only helpful but valued.

    1. This photo was chosen to be difficult, it was to get people to really think about wording and thinking past like a “blank” spot in the photo. I understand…[Read more]

  • Hey! Awesome stuff! I use a Mac Program called PhotoScape X I did go and buy the full version.

    I tried what you advised before, the result is the background is still too strong, with no aurora the words almost literally disappear.

    In the picture below I have attached writing in all four corners at full visibility. While they do shine through,…[Read more]

  • Hey I have a really bad problem that has started coming up, could use some help, so in the photo’s I take that contain bible verses I usually always strive to make them professional, nice font, white letters, (keep it clean.).

    I will use this photo as an example, there are certain photo’s I take that are like so densely colored that even the…[Read more]

  • Hey, thanks so much for taking time to look at and determine some aspects these photo’s can grow in! I understand what you are saying and agree with a lot of your advice!

    I think I’d play around with the crop on the first picture, perhaps cropping at the bottom so there’s a bit less of the blank whited out foreground.

    Great advice! The…[Read more]

    I am very sorry, I had no intention of using any profane language at all, I’m really sorry my comment came across like that, um, which word did I say was profane?

    Again I’m very sorry that I included crude language in my sentence, I just can’t figure out where?

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Cinnamon Rolls! in the forum Photo Critique 7 months ago

    Wow! So I’ve gotta say I love photography, but I love cinnamon rolls more, so this photo caught my attention quickly!

    ~ Two points real quick/ First – Your background may not be most optimal. Second – Lighting.

    ~ First: I love cinnamon rolls! However your background may not be most carefully thought through for this shot, now I have never done…[Read more]

  • Ben Glick replied to the topic Some Christmas Shots in the forum Photo Critique 7 months ago

    Hey Jinny! Thanks so much! I love that you like them! Your point is very authentic and I like where you are going with that! There are two main reasons for why the photo has the watermark it does, (Quick disclaimer: This photo is extremely large, it is actually a 13 Mb photo, so a lot got cut off of the edges, you can even see that with how the…[Read more]
