Thread: Raindrops on Dry Leaf

  1. #1

    Default Raindrops on Dry Leaf



    1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?
    - composition, cropping, DOF, and noise level

    2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?
    - dramatic capture to emphasize darkness and lightness, dry and wet qualities

    3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    - raining, not much ambient light available, no tripod, cam on ground to reduce shake

    4. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image.
    - i am not sure if my decision to use such a narrow DOF is correct

    half of me want to like this photo, particularly the colour tone and "mood".

    but the other half says "so what about the water drops and dry leaf. So what?"

    very contradicting...

    I feel that if you want to focus on your leaf with a narrow depth of field, the leaf should occupy more of the frame. Should not shoot "far away" yet use a narrow depth.

    But good attempt.

    i think your exposure (or burning around the edges? )helped to isolate the subject well

    like the mellow easy feel of the image
    shaddap and just shoot .... up close

    1. DOF is fine, but i prefer to make the droplet sharper..

    2. its kinda dramatic, but he wet thing, hmnnn its only on the leaves, i thinks its better if the sorrounding is also wet

    3.-

    4. i think its correct, but a bigger leaf & droplet will be better

    i hope you dont mind my comments

    I like this. May I suggest a catchier title to bring out the mood of this photo? The title is a little descriptive.

    A nice shot. Sharpness on droplets could be improved. Nice use of DOF.
    May I know the Camera and lens you used?

    Is the leaf upside down? Think the DOF is a little thin but you've done well with setting the mood!

    The mood works, but for the subject to be less than a quarters size of the whole frame, i feel its tad too small

    It looks technically ok. I would think a tighter shot of the leaf or a different perspective would give you great improvement to the shot.
