Thanks! #3 was actually taken at the wide end of my telezoom, 50mm.hi!! i really like the framing in 1, the perspective in 3 (used uwa?) and the lights and colours in 5! =)
Yah, I agree. I had forgotten to shoot at different f# to make sure I got one with the right effect/DOF. There was a swarm of bugs there, so I just shot and quickly got away. Now regretting a bit!1# can be improved by shooting at a wider aperture so that your fence and leaves on the right framing is blurred out slightly. Now i feel that it is fighting for attention with the bridge (which is centralised in the photo), its nice framing though.
just my two cent.
Thanks! I'm now wondering if a tighter crop might work better, brings more attention to the street and cars leading to the bridge and sky:#5 are great.
pink sky as backdrop of a very metropolitan city.
Thanks! I guess each version has its merits.I like #5a..it feels less stuffy in a way.
Anyway love your #5!
The framing with the fence was inspired by a poster that I saw being sold along the streets. I thought they might have fixed such a hole in the fence, but luckily they didn't.I like the framing of this shot :thumbsup:
The blues and greens seem a bit too saturated though.
hmmmm... maybe it's just me
:dunno: I wasn't trying for any bokeh in #3. It's meant to be sharp all around.#3 - If you have exhausted all ways to create the bokeh with the 50mm lens, there are 2 ways you can try.
First - Zoom with your feet. Step further away and use the largest aperture. f1.4
Or, you can use photoshop to add bokeh to the picture.
very nice #1 picture.
When I was there, it was very cold and there were a lot of mist and fog covering golden gate bridge..
Thanks guys! That was taken on 30 Dec 2010. I remember the bay area was having very rainy weather most of Dec, but it did clear up for a few days at the end of the month. I was lucky.Nice photos you have there. Sure bring back fond memories for me.
Like your #1 photo. Great idea of using the broken fence as framing.
Wow, your Golden Gate Bridge is so clear. I was there during Dec 2010. And see how foggy mine was.
Hope to see more photos. Thanks for sharing.
