Hi guys snapped this on a very sunny day on a recent trip to the zoo
taken at 1/80,f10 with 350D&Kit Lens
Ps done to crop and darken the highlights a bit
Please do help me improve
Would have looked nicer if you prolonged the exposure to abt 1s to capture the silky effect of the waterfall unless of course, your intention is not to do that.
Also, viewers eyes tend to run all over the picture as there is no main subject. Not very sure which do you want to be your main centre of focus... the waterfall or the monkey at the lower right corner or something else.
My 2 cents
i'm actually looking for "joe" haha.. oh, its a monkey.
well.. i too felt that its a bit messy... if u want to put "joe" into the pic, maybe u would like to try to make "joe" a bit bigger.. of course some people would like u to take only the waterfall to make it into the main subject, but then it would be boring.. waterfall pic are taken most of the time lor.
its really up to u on how u want to "mix" the monkey together with the waterfall.. like to capture th waterfall in the eyeball reflection of the monkey..(wah.. ) or compose to make the monkey bigger in the photo and then the waterfall inhis front view... also nplay ard with dof.
hmm.. not sure if u know what i mean..
anyway.. keep shooting!!!
hey I see a bunch of joe's hiding behind the rocks
hmmm.... the use of slower shutter to get silky water will be a little "dangerous" ! Coz the monkey wouldn't be staying there for seconds totally not moving at all! Good attempt, just that the position of the monkey is too near the corner...
I am NOT a PROfessional photographer and photography is NOT my hobby
The monkey very cute, one "ball" there hehe
