Got kinda funky in San Francisco last night. I'd be curious to hear your thoughts, the full (mini) series is here.




EDIT: Also, this.

I like those, great use of light in the 3rd one.

From today's adventure.

Those are both fantastic SS

Regardless, does anyone have any critique for this photo? I'm not a huge fan of it, but can't pinpoint why. I'm thinking it's because of the yellow part at the bottom right. [And sorry, can't figure out how to make it smaller w/o using flickr or something else]

Think about something you want to photograph, don't try and find something by just wandering about. Trying to photograph things as opposed to trying to make photographs look like a certain style is always far more gratifying.

Similarly, looking at artists photobooks (I advise against the internet as it's far too easy to get distracted) can be pretty fruitful.

You rarely stumble on something you find really compelling, it's usually right there infront of you and you just haven't even realized!

Coaster, there's so many different elements to an image like that, it can be a challenge to make it work well.

I'd try to simplify the composition by avoiding anything that doesn't add to the scene, like parts of the sky and the out of focus leafs in the bottom right. Also, the number one rule I follow in composition is to make sure I have clean edges. If you're framing an image with trees along the edges, it's important to make sure they continue for the entire length of the frame.

Made a quick edit for example, hope you don't mind.

Is the little gap at the top right alright or should I crop it out?

Between the tree and the end of the frame? I think in theory it would make it better but it does not distract me at all.

Sorry, totally forgot to respond to this. Meant to do it, but then got distracted.

Thanks for the critique! And yeah, I think the edit you did is way better than what I posted.

To R-O, if you hadn't pointed it out, I wouldn't have noticed it without closer inspection

To David, good, but maybe rather than have an OOF foreground, get closer, and get the whole bike and rider in focus (like the focus plane), and have an OOF background. It'd be more difficult, but would look a lot better. After that, just try and match the OOF region with where the rider is headed, and make sure that whichever direction the rider is going always has more space than the side in which he came from (sorta vague, but I'm finishing packing for treeplanting right now, sorry)
