I find the pictures very interesting. I wasn't aware there was such a nice cemetary around.blueisland said:
Thanks Thanks, finally, received my first constructive comment.espn said:D-lighting is not god... avoid over using it I can tell you used D-lighting by the way you re-processed your shots. You lose quite a bit of image quality by using D-lighting.
i prefer the original. the contrasting tone on the wood if taken away makes the picture looks blunt and flat. it depends on what u think is more important. increasing the exposure of cos helps to bring out the details of the cemetry in the background.jc1 said:My edited version for first pic, using NC4, comments please. Thanks.
also super newbie here, just sharing. but if i want the background to be sharp, i usually will not include too close a foreground object that went out of focus (like the cross on the left). as the cross is really near and the background quite far away, u need to have a very wide depth of field, i.e. very small aperture. i think u can afford that cos the light looks pretty bright and uncasted.blueisland said:
your focus object is too close to the corner. would it be better if it is closer to the lateral right 1/3 by rules of the third? and the sky i think can be sacrificed since it is featureless. and i think wide angle lens held vertically can help to exaggerate the perspective as the flabs on the ground is too horizontal. if u can stretch it out along the perspective, it may look more interesting.blueisland said:2 more here ...
The second pics is a little pale, I have PS on the sky a little..
