Good start, but a bit too much pepper.

Good positoning (rule of thirds). However, the arrangement he is holding takes too much focus. In fact, it is in focus while the figure is not.
It might be just my opinion, but the shadow in back is a little distracting as well.

cool, my main intent was to focus on the flowers and not the ken. i took this pic on top of my speakers and do notice the shadow more now that you mentioned it. next time i'll do it with a white backdrop.

the flower is called purple cream. it may have a phos deficiency or it may be that it had very cold nights during the flower period, which may turn purple strains darker purple.

regardless, post more pics!

Then, should the figure be more unfocussed?

Its just a question, of course. Can you experiment with the same subject (s)?

i forgot what f-stop i used, but i think it was the smallest f/#. i am using a regular lens that came with my nikon d40x. going to experiment some more and post when i get the chance.

how can i make the ken more unfocused besides changing the f-stop?

Off hand I would say try using a macro lens. That would def isolate the flower and make the fig out of focus.

This is the kind of pic I like. Taking something ordnary and making it seem like something never before seen or noticed.
If I had 1 criticism, it would be the background. It is just a little distracting from the subject, especially that little red area. But, please, that is being very picky.




Also, I hope others do some critiquing.

I am enjoying this thread though. :smile:

Looks nice but a little out of focus. Also lose the spots on the right side, dead giveaway for aquarium glass.

No such thing :wink: Hey Arne, you're always posting pics of food... Are you a chef or just a food lover?

I'll post some pics soon... Just got a new XSi :smile:

Sweet! A photography thread. I'm digging it already!

Osirus: I agree with the others. I like where it's headed! A new, white backdrop (and possibly a secondary light source) would definitely help offset the distracting shadows.

osirus wrote:

Nothing else can really change that focal range on the camera besides the f-stop. But as Arne said a macro would help amplify the effect. Perhaps even changing how the Ken is holding the flowers or getting a more dramatic perspective could heighten that difference between the two.

Xerocs: Very interesting subject. I kind of want to get closer though. See even more detail on those leaves...the little fuzzies. Where was it taken?

Arne: Loving the jellyfish pic. Good crop. Colors are gorgeous, and I actually like how it's softly focused. Implies its movement and consistency. I feel like I could touch it. The spots are easily fixable in post.

I like the vantage point of the bridge shot too. The lines lead me through it quite nicely. But it does feel a little confined. There's an expansiveness to it, that I feel like I'm missing. Perhaps opening up the frame a bit would help (?)

Zinc: Haha. I always appreciate animal photos. They can be interesting subjects. I like the relatively monochromatic colors. Nice crop and pose. Caught him in mid-bound.

Here's my contribution for now...

It is a cucumber from my garden... I am a gardener by hobby. I will get closer on my next post of this... I really want to explore some more with my garden, however, I am going to the beach today to get some underwater photos... hopefully I can get the tripod set up and get a good shot or two of the cucumber buds before the become full blown cucumbers... I will post later today.

Cool. Would've never guessed, haha. I bet there's a ton of potential with that garden. And underwater photos? Can't wait to see some.

heebysdaman, its funny, in another forum, we were saying how unattractive it was for women to wear flats. However, the colors of the pavement compliment the color of the shoes very well. You took a subject I am not fond of and made it more appealing. The snow shot is nice as well. I used to live in Maine (and Illinois too) so that shot is kinda nostalgic.




xeriocs, definetley keep going on those underwater shots. You not only have the camera to do it, but also seem to be close by a location to take shots. What you have taken so far still gives that otherworldly feel. Nice!
