I like the colors, the blend into the sun and the texture and feel, however I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking at? Sometimes it's good to not have immediate recognition and have the understanding build - but I think it's a building with glass panels in the construntion (at first glance I thought it was a sub tower - I know, not too smart with the vents on top next to the flag). Im sorry, if I should recognize the building... 8/10 (includes an extra point for the best flag ever!)

Thanks for the honest review. I completely agree that landscape would have worked better. It was quite a show even getting that many people to light their sparklers at the same time and then coordinate the shot. Well, once they were all lit, the bride and groom almost ran through the sparkler gauntlet and I'm lucky I had enough time to even get as many shots as I did (5) and have two turn out well enough to give them. I had a 35 and I wanted to get full length, was I guess my thought in those few seconds I had to decide. And I couldn't change my position fast enough to get full length with landscape, so I turned the camerq quickly to portrait and fired away. I also agree about the DOF aspect but again, I had literally 5 seconds to meter for the sparklers and make adjustments and while I could have jacked up the ISO a bit further to get a little better DOF, I had to make a decision. They loved the shots and I did what I had to do to get them, so in that sense I'm pleased with them, but I completely agree with your points.

you forgot to rate the photo above you - i.e. the one with the water / surfers


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

- no it wasn't

- the person before you did not rate the picture above his message and didn't post a picture

- he just posted a follow up comment to the review of his picture

I'm reposting this one because it was skipped - and I'll rate the wave photo (67cudaking, to post on this thread you need to comment on the last uncommented photo - although it can get confusing if there's a post below the photo that pertains to some other photo on the thread).

First the Kiddo - Great shot, I'm a sucker for kid shots before they become hams... Love to DOF, it's a little over exposed for my taste but that seems to be a stylistic choice 8/10.

The waves - I grew up in Mission Beach (San Diego) and we didn't have waves like this unless there was a south swell (not very often). A hollow top to bottom left break, 4-6 ft day? Looks like a pretty heavy off shore wind with some minor white capping in the distance. I like the light off the face of the wave and the classic radius of the lip with spray peeling back due to the off shore wind - but it's too far away to see any detail and the swimmer/body-surfer-photographer (?) in the water grabs the center point of focus for me. 6.5/10

Great moment capture, its all about the moment. Composition is very nice as well, great sharpness and the moment is frozen very well (I assume u used a very high shutter speed). I have brightened the face of the guy a little bit !
8.5/10

Another self-portrait.

Ok, I think I might have been the one that screwed it up. My bad. Ok, Seems like a strange crop. Lots of room at the top. Shadows across the face too. I'm just not feeling it I guess.

I like the mood and the colors, I like the composition except the depth of field should be so that the baby is in focus to... IMHO 6/10

I like the colours and the motion conveyed with the shutter speed - also the contrast imagery of young children running playfully towards a warning sign. I would cropped the image, likely in 8x10, from the right to remove more of the dead space. 6.5/10.

Just took this while testing out various focus and tracking setups with the 100-400 II. It is taken through a house window so it lacks some sharpness.

100-400I, F 5.6, 1/400th, iso 800 @ 400mm, single spot AF on the eyeball

I like this image, but i can't get over the fact that the fence isn't level. as well as the branches in the top of the image are a bit distracting. and the tail might be out of focus. 6/10 Also, has anyone ever had a problem with uploading an image over 10mb? I've never had that issue

Sharpness and Exposure are good, but other than that it really does nothing for me. I'm not really sure what you were trying to convey w/ this.
