The first shot is a bit flat, but I enjoy the minimalism. :-)


See the light.

Thanks for the kind words guys, and more importantly the constructive criticism which is essential for any development.

@argyle: I agree with you about the slanted horizons, but considering its using a fisheye lens they are quite difficult to even nail the horizon, even with a tripod and a spirit level, but also my other excuse was that with my older housing, it only had a side handle and no pistol grip (if you click on the link to the housing you will see what the pistol grip looks like) and that makes it much more difficult to get the camera in the optimum position and orientation. Sure i could have straightened it in post but i found that it cropped too much of the barrel to make it worth it, and will be something i have to work on. The vignetting is quite accidental in them, i was using a 1d mark II with a tokina 10-17 set at about 13mm for most of them, which occasionally meant i got the hood in the way, which is grossly accentuated by the fact that i upped the blacks. That being said i will make sure i dont add vignettes when they dont actually add to the image, which i guess will be the vast majority.

Ill be sure to add a couple more when i get into the water this winter (Australia) as thats when the ground swell usually produces the biggest and most consistent waves

Fantastic shots, the yellows are too oversaturated though.

Great pictures. I love #1 and #2. #1.. yes it is plain, but the blue is beautiful and I like the simplicity. You're a good photographer, keep it up!

Beautiful photographs. The first one is interesting, but in the sense that the water does not look anything like water. If you centered the leave in the photo using Photoshop you might get an interesting take on it.

I really like 1 and 2. 3 is great but I just like the colors and tones in the first two.

I love the first one. I like soft colors like that really a lot.

If I had to choose one, I'd pick the second (sunset). It's stunning and the colors are quite vivid. The first is lacking something to me and the third is just a bit behind in appeal to the second. Great work either way!

thanks guys really appreciate it, especially the constructive criticism sometimes i find i need someone else's opinion on photos because i think they're better than they are haha

what's the common place thing to do on this forum if i want a thread that just has some of my photos in it for people to view? Should i just keep putting them in here?

If you want a critique, put them in here but in a separate thread...makes things easier to follow and less confusing. If you're simply posting images and not necessarily looking for a critique, just post them in the appropriate forum that suits the subject matter.
