Thread: Japanese Sunset

  1. #1

    Default Japanese Sunset

    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    I would like a critique on my compositions and light work, as I feel as if I messed up the light and made it look fake by using a gelatin blue to orange filter.
    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    I wanted to show how beautiful some places on earth can be..?
    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)

    Camera Canon EOS 50D
    Exposure Time 0.01s (1/100)
    Aperture f/8
    ISO 100
    Focal Length 41mm (65.6mm in 35mm)
    No conditions/emotions that i can remember apart from quickly taking out my camera because there had been a huge flash of orange in the sky, and handholding a filter at the front.

    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
    I think that although it looks really nice, it also looks fake, due to the use of a gelatin filter along with the sunset. I also didn't want to photoshop it that much, so i just reduced the contrast by a bit. I shot JPEG so it's harder to correct exposure. This is one of my earlier landscape shots, the more recent ones are somewhat better... all in my smugmug

    Fake or not, depends on the eyes of the beholder...

    just a smudge less saturation would be great. this has overstepped border of "just enough" and "too much" for me.

    composition wise, i think it's fine. nothing very exceptional, but safe and alright.

    i would consider cleaning up the shadows at the bottom of image just a bit to make it better.
