Hi Guys,

Smash me with critique! It's been a while :lol:

If your screen isn't calibrated, it may look really bright but let me know anyway. I would like ANY critique/comments you can give me. Thanks!

Cool little touch, but a bit much on the saturation of it I think...could be a bit more subtle. Other than that a cool take, just bored of long exposure shots like this...no offense to you.

Looks good... how long was the exposure. The clouds look like they got some subtle motion blur to them. Hard to tell when shown this small. It is a dramatic shot... but yes, perhaps dial the vibrance back a notch.

The rays weren't actually a cool touch, they were a rare treat :) pretty much why I picked this photo to post. I did add a little saturation too them though and appreciate the input. Can you both let me know if your monitors are calibrated? Because on my laptop, the rays and everything else looks ridiculous (way way oversaturated). But if your monitors are calibrated I need to seriously check mine out. I have two separate monitors running off of one laptop, trying to have the main big one calibrated, so if you or someone else with a calibrated monitor can let me know how the saturation and brightness looks I would really appreciate it. The monitor that I'm hoping is calibrated doesn't look oversaturated but it definitely could be wrong. This is one of the main resons I posted so thanks.

I also had the photo printed and it looks good but the lab may have adjusted it without telling me.

The exposure was 1.3 seconds - there could be some motion blur because it was a bit windy, the rays only lasted about 5 minutes. Thanks for your comments I really appreciate it. Would you also mind telling me what your viewing it on? I'm now even more concerned my monitor is way off

Just wondering also if or how you would have done it differently? If I froze the motion it didn't look good to me but maybe you would have changed something else completely?

The horizon is not level, and I wonder if you could tome down the harshness of the sun itself? Otherwise, its lovely.


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

27" iMac calibrated to AdobeRGB.

Really the clouds are not that big of a deal... the rest looks pixel sharp.
