Actually I think no1 is the most realistic photo, no2 is plainly some surreal interpretation.

and thats why photography its called a art and science

For weka.

Giday. It would appear that you are highly educated in the science/art called photography, so much so, that for example you can comment on others pictures and derisively call them snaps, and suggest the photographer really needs to learn about composition in an offhand if not outright sarcastic manner.

Of course it would take too much, what exactly? from you, to actually make an unbiased constructive criticism.

So here is some of my experience in the art/science/field/acti​vity/hobby of photography. First camera 55 yrs ago, a well used Kodak 116. Film. Nothing auto, so much so that one had to load the shutter before taking a snap. Since then I have supported myself for a couple of years in Auckland taking candid snaps, er... photos. Most nights I would go to dance halls, restaurants (Sardi's was one of mine), meetings etc and sell for 5 bucks a post card size print, to be mounted and mailed later in the week. This carried a money back guarantee. I didn't own the company was just a photographer. Did that for several yrs. The photo could be returned for whatever reason including 'I don't like it', and money refunded. In 2 yrs I had one returned, it was damaged in the mail. This was film and off camera flash, one had to know what was on the film because there was no checking a screen on the back. I rarely had to repeat pictures and of course knew if someone blinked and I had to shoot it again.

I have covered events for NZ Hot Rod magazine who used to comment I was their most efficient photographer, I used half the film of anyone else for the same quality of coverage. Good snaps you see.

I have covered round the bays for NZ Herald, and other times Auckland Star. That is called freelancing you know?

I have done a number of weddings, including my own sister's and you know, auto cameras still have not come out yet. Film mate film, no chimping available.

Other events freelancing for Suburban Newspapers include ice skating, basketball, car rally, celebrations and award evenings. I still have in my possession a pic of Sarah Ulmer who was presenter for a sports festival in Balclutha about 10 yrs ago.

I have no formal learning in photography but yet, I have done all that. So I am wondering Weka, how many photos have you sold?

Now I struggle with new technology. I am first to admit that. At age 50 I bought my first computer and took 12 months off work to do a full time course, computer graphics. I was the oldest in my class by 25 yrs. The others had all studied or had experience in art, graphics etc.

I struggle with the electronic settings in modern cameras. I struggle with computer software.

And now I struggle often, just to breathe. That also affects learning and assimilation of knowledge. When I say struggle to breathe, I run out of breathe to point of collapse, just cleaning my teeth. I don't know when I am going to run out of breathe, or even how well I will be day to day. Cold is a real difficult time for me.

I can beat the image stabilization of my camera, even at fast shutter speeds, because my body is struggling to get oxygen.

When I say the sun was in the wrong place, it most certainly was, for what I had in mind, and that did not include the use of a 10 stop lens cover which has become the latest sort of fad. BTW you possibly need to throw on another UV filter because the 10 stopper lets in UV over other light and that is probably what causes the pink caste. Just a suggestion, mind.

In all honesty, the only snap/photo/picture that is a failure is the one which no-one likes or admires (you can admire a pic of a rotten lung without liking it). My pictures are a record of what I see and what I like to share, and processed to the best of my ability which is certainly only slightly more than basic.

However all photos are judged by their observers and you know, when they sell then you know that you are doing something right.

Sure, but it only extends to 120m and you can only climb it with a tiny sensor camera.

Hmmm, not much good for cleaning the gutters then.

That is a great shot up the estuary though, very cool take on it.

Thanks. I like how the line of boats leads the eye into the picture.

Thanks. That is a single shot. The dynamic range of the scene was within the limits of the drone sensor.

One for the birds....
