Hi all,

I have been away from photography for a bit but have recently gotten back into it. I am looking for some critiques on a few photos, especially with regards to composition and post-processing/artistic styling.

My initial thoughts are that I take things a bit over the top when post processing, but when I look at sites like 500px, it seems that 90% of the photos there are super saturated etc, to make them "pop" more...and I personally prefer that look, but understand that some don't.

Anyway, here are the photos (imgur album):

While I am looking for feedback/critiques on all of the photos, I would like to specifically ask for feedback on the one of the fisherman. I'm just not sure if I like the style of that photo or not...perhaps full B&W would be better? I don't like the way it looks in full color (it's very green overall).

Thanks!

Your photos are very nice, you should post one or two here for critique, you have too many to review and critique on your site


I dont shoot with a Canon, I just really like it here :)
Nikon D90, Nikon D7000.. 18-105 kit lens, Nikon 35mm prime lens, Sigma 70-200 f/2.8, Nikon 105mm macro/prime speedlight 600, 5-in-one reflector.... PSE9 editing software

First one needs a crop..the daisy gets lost in all that space, plus some of the whites are slightly blown on the petals. whites are tough in the bright sunshine.

Second I like. I know there will be "dead center" comments:D but this does lead me directly up the stairs.I like the B&W, I like the framing,( just one nit.the small black on the right above the rail). The shadows really play up the stairs as well.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I like the grain of the steps in the B&W. The centering works ok for me but do you have any from another angle?

Unfortunately I have no other angles right now...but will try some new things the next time I go back there

I use Aperture for all PP. Most of the time I start with adjusting WB, then play with exposure settings and color until it looks the way I like. No real tips I just play around until I end up with something I like :) I also apply edge sharpening and a light vignette to most of my pics.
