A lot of things move, people, vehicles, etc. thing is I love nature photography. In that genre clouds and water dominate when using strong nd filters. I suspect that is why you predominantly see that here...most of the people posting in this thread are nature landscape photographers. If the poster works in other areas I would love to see examples of his personal application of these filters.

The catch here is the 9/10 stop filter. People and vehicles would be virtually invisible.

I know :) Unless you are shooting in the middle of the day.

I agree, there really isn't much to shoot with a 9-10 stop filter of there's nothing moving. And if something is moving slow enough youight catch it with a ND filter. That being said, I think water and clouds are the best options. The photo I took in Atlanta was quite dangerous but unexpectedly turned out pretty cool looking. Would I do that again? Maybe from a rooftop but not on the side of the interstate.

Edit: that was actually taken from a bridge but o got asked to leave by a police officer because it was still a little dangerous.

I did take one shot on the side of the road that was a little scary.

Sheesh..............I was waiting for an obvious response............9/​10 stop ND filter and...............


hint- it starts with a "S"


Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Not entirely sure how I feel about this one still. Went for a hike yesterday morning and to avoid a family who was being loud I took a path along the other side of the pond. This rock was sticking out of the water caught my eye and it looked good at the time.

Absolutely love it, but wondering if an off centre crop might be interesting to see. I mean take some of th right hand side off .... just a thought

Thanks. It is a slight bit off center now, the little tiny tree was centered. I might look at taking some off the left, but I like the open negative space to the right.

I'm with RoseyPosey. I think the natural crop is to the right, given the shape/dynamic of the trees. I don't think a contrarian approach is going to work well here. Tension is all well and good from time to time ... but not this time.

But it's a great shot ... it's nice to be able to argue the finer points about how best to crop it.


David.
Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.

I don't see how croppling the right makes it more off center, that would center it more...

I am fully open to the discussion of it...not agreeing isn't really contrarian, still willing to discuss it though.

Travis its a beautiful image just like it is. If that is/was your vision of it I'd say leave it alone. I think it could work with a squarish more centered crop, but I think it could also work cropping more from the left as you suggested. Any one of us could approach it differently, and even differently on a given day. It looks great though, just like it is.

Thanks John. I always feel like if you defend your vision, people that are not familiar with how crits work, think you are just being defensive...or as it was stated, contrarian...even when that is not the case.

I saw it this way, I didn't want any more space to the left, and couldn't TBH, more left included means the shore line. More right means more trees, moving left means the huge power station oof in the distance shows up, and ruins the shot, or makes me spend a lot of time cloning it out...so, a bit of space on the left to anchor that side, and a little more space on the right, leading to the open water that is to the right...


But...much like art skool, we were often asked to show the options that were discussed in crit...not only for ourselves to show that we worked through it, but also to show that maybe the original was in fact just fine as is...

So, v2...cropped from the right, same space left and right of the trees. the left trunk of the front tree is dead center in the frame. maintaining the 2x3 ratio...

v3...same as above, but a 5x7 crop...I hate 5x7 crops...but the 2x3 crop losing the right meant losing either the bottom of the tree reflection, or the sky...and well, I am not cropping the sky off...

I still prefer the original...the crops lose that nice patch of blue sky top right, and overall, it just feels centered, too centered...but its just my opinion, on my image, not right, not wrong...just my opinion...
