    First time posting. Hope to get some feedback on the pics. Especially how you will compose the same scene.

    yup...ya photos suit the theme well


    #1....portrait perhaps...can show more of the whole thing while still maintaining focus on the joss sticks

    #2.... great...love the colour saturation...

    #3.... Perhaps less DOF....so that it is more obvious tt its a church behind....coudnt tell from first glance...

    overall i like the way u compose your shots.... esp the first and the third...the title is very suiting too...

    Witness, thanks for the comments! I have another shot of the same scene for #1. But I was using my D70 kit lense, I couldn't get the nice out of focus feel, ended up looking very cluttered.

    For #3. I was standing just below the barbed wire and the cross on top the church was quite far away. I'll try this shot again the next time I get a chance to go back to the same area.

    Unfortunately I have not mastered colours with the D70. This curves thing is a whole lot more complicated then it sounds.

    I did adjustments in Photoshop before posting. I like the National Geographic type of deep saturation. Faithful colours is never my aim.

    For #2, I adjusted the saturation for the red channel, this way the gray at the top and bottom still looks neutral.

    Apparently. For contrast and saturation of the pics, the lense makes a big difference. I was shooting with both the cheapo kit lense and a Sigma 70-300. I just got myself a 60mm f2.8 micro, this lense is suppose to give you very saturated and contrasty images. I'll try it out this thursday. Until I can afford 3 thousand dollar lenses, I'll need to reply on photoshop.
