Hi, I'm new here. Been following the site for a while though.


Anyway, just thought I'd just contribute a couple of snaps of my own and see what people think.

I know they don't touch a lot of the other pics on here but I thought I'd give them an airing anyways.

Sure why not :) My son came to this world  months ago, and I hadn't done a proper cliche photo of him yet, so a couple of weeks ago I set up a single lamp with a softbox and try to get something within the 5 min attention span of him :P

I think it came out decently even though I dislike classic portraiture.

Like it.

Photo: Nicely done; shows enough of everything to describe exactly what the occasion is.


Finishing: Blacks are black, whites are white. Good tonality without it seeming flat. My eye keeps getting drawn to the post on the left and, if it was me, I'd have cropped it out. That's just my personal view though.

I wish I had the stones to do weddings!  :(

Like the post before stated, great tones.

What I think could use a little work is the relative placement of the bride and groom.  I feel that in the shot as it currently is, there is either too little or too much bride.  By this I mean that shooting a little to the left would have given the shot a bit of mystery by only showing the bride's hand (this variant would probably benefit from a crop or shooting closer to the subjects too).  What is left unseen can often lend an image greater impact.

Otherwise, having the bride and groom rotate 20 degrees clockwise (the background comp is good as it is) to see most of the brides face would also make for a stronger image.

Anyway, it is still a great shot, but shooting a little different could of made it more effective in my opinion.

What a great collection of images!

Kindly and respectfully, A few of you guys are totally Gray scale the images. Holocaust Memorial, Berlin would be an example that I am looking at and I can't find the B/W's.

Mind you, many of my pictures posted are far from perfect B/W's

Keep posting and keep using Canon.

I've long been uncertain about this picture. I can give you 10 intellectual reasons why it should work, yet I don't think it does and I'm not sure why.

IMO, the subject is too close to the center of the frame (brush up on the "Rule of Thirds").  Also, there are objects (table, windows, light fixtures) that don't belong or aren't needed.  By cropping them out and moving the subject off-center, it can become a much better composition. :)

I really like this picture just how it is, no crop. The lines through the picture pull the eye to the subject. Abundant blank space further draws the eye to the subject. The subject being nearly in the center also draws the eye to the subject (rule of thirds is not always the best idea...).

But most of all, this picture works because of the story it tells. I could immediately identify with this picture. I've seen this scene in life many times... This image really captures life in one of its smaller moments.

Hey guys, long time reader here.
I wanted to share some of my b/w's and hear what you think:
Title: Re: Post a cool B/W!
Post by: Kamera Obscura on September 30, 2011, 01:50:55 PM
Please don't kick my butt for doing this or get angry.

So 15 sec in PS and about seven years of nicotine added, this is how I would have the picture done.

As far as the post office pic, a bit Grayscale to. Rule of 3rd don apply due to optical deep of field. No crop needed. Just Change the tone.

Of course having said all the. This all so personal. For some, I'm just talking out of my hat.

All the best,
dario.

Let's get some more pix up guys. This is a fun tread,

Dario.

Look at that vintage looking Mercedes Benz, so cool indeed! A lot of people make reference to the Porsche 550 as a “death car,” because James Dean got killed in one. That is no death car at all, as nothing comes even close to the Mercedes-Benz 600 Grosser, the preferred chariot for many of the world's most ferocious dictators. You really should buy car lease (http://www.cardealexpert.com/news-information/fyi/death-car/) instead to make sure you really like the car.

Old_York..I like the phone booth shot a lot.  Much history goes a long with it no doubt.  Wouldn't mind seeing seeing a retake from another angle possibly sans the bench if possible.  Might bring the camera down a bit to crop off that straight up pole..I do like the B&W conversion without the red .. works well with olden items.  Nice capture.
