jbma, must be some pretty gals jogging around rite ? :lovegrin:jbma said:Thanks bro. I feel that my shots could have been better. Not enough concentration on that day.
Thanks Sgt Pepper. I really appreciate your feedback. This is my 2nd try at macro. I need to go out and shoot with the pros in order to learn. Will note your advise the next time I'm doing it.Sgt. Pepper said:Hi, last 3 shots are slightly OOF or handshake maybe? And I would prefer a lower angle for the damselfly shot. Even those territorial type of drgonfly doesnt return to the same perch sometimes, try to observe the behaviour of the specific subject you're aiming. Leave those skittish alone and concentrate on those cooperative type and sure you will nail one. Keep shooting!
Yup you are right. Met a girl there while shooting. Will post her picture later.chunger said:jbma, must be some pretty gals jogging around rite ? :lovegrin:
I agree with you, your shots can be better, but the first one quite good. The rest I think you din have good luck for them to pose nicely in frame.
Simply Cannot make it..ur macro shots of the dragon flies. I know I am being brutually honest...But your pictures are best prove that it should not even be posted up. Out of Focus and soft...jbma said:Thanks bro. I feel that my shots could have been better. Not enough concentration on that day.
ha ha...he could be a pro...i dunno...i think he shouldnt have posted if he got no constructive criticism.jbma said:Ooooo you must be a pro. The reason I post my photos is to get feedback so that I can improve my skills. But you seem to condemn without any constructive criticism.

I seen your gallery, the photos posted are not too bad. But can you honestly tell me are those shots any good...khairi said:ha ha...he could be a pro...i dunno...i think he shouldnt have posted if he got no constructive criticism.
maybe he has been getting a lot of good shots...that's why it's getting into his head.
well...Mr Wynx...wynx said:I seen your gallery, the photos posted are not too bad. But can you honestly tell me are those shots any good...
And don't assume you know what I am thinking, you are not me, so please keep your assumptions to yourself.
Thanks for your kind words ST_sg. I am not good at macro. This is my second try at it. I will PM you my replies to your query. Paiseh to put here...all the Pros are watching.ST_sg said:Hi jmba, though this was your 2nd attempt on Macro shots, but hey man, your skill much better than me a few miles !
Care to share your setup? ie. shooting in P/A/Tv/M-mode, shutter speed/ f/stop/ flash/ tripod/AWB/AdobeRGB/Parameter2,..etc ?
Any post processing done in PS?
sorry for asking so much detail, as I'd to know how exactly it can produce such quality photos
jbma is honestly asking for comments on how to improve his shooting. we all post to get tips on how to shoot better, and also to find out where we gone wrong.
IMO, it doesn't matter the comments come from pros, semi-pros, serious amatuers or complete noobies. but, more importantly, the comments must be useful and instructive. for me, i'm grateful to people like aj23, espn, pro-new... etc who have given me very good criticisms on where i gone wrong and right when i shoot portraits. i appreciate their good comments, and try my best to apply them on future shoots.
however, while being 'brutally honest' to jbma abt his CMI shots, perhaps u shld couple ur comments with constructive comments like "mebbe u shld use a tripod when shooting macros", "get a close up filter", "use higher shutter speeds" etc... i dun know ur intentions, and have no wish to guess. nevertheless, by saying jbma's shots "cannot make it" and not offering any solutions will only invite criticisms on urself.
i'm not a pro/expert in photography, and i dun wish to pretend to be one. however, i'm sure most of us in CS are more than willing and happy to learn from one and another on how to do better the next time. perhaps, in ur future comments and criticisms, mebbe u would like to share with us on how to do better?
