David,

Just a quick comment. The first shot is soft and back-focused, looking like the AF grabbed the cars behind the player (and looks like the lens was stopped down too much which resulted in minimal subject seperation - what was the aperture?).

Also, the background is too busy. Of course, these two thing don't matter much after your PhotoShop treatment.

When you lassoed the subject, there are still some residuals of the background left (note the little "thing" around her face that is a leftover of the white vertical goal post in the background that looks like it's growing from her eyes).

Now, as far as the second image goes, this is a matter of personal taste. I'd much rather have a sharp, well-exposed image (as Tassied posted) as the centerpiece than "posterize" an out of focus shot like you did.

Is there a significance to the fairy wings?

Anyway, you can probably do a search on "Poster AND Photoshop" and see more examples. Here are two:

https://photography-on-the.net …ighlight=poster​+photoshop

I applaud your creativity, and for posting here. As I said, these things can be pretty subjective.

Dennis

Here's mine. This was taken last year and was just a sample for me to tinker w/ PS. I've gotten better since then. Both w/ my photog skills and PS. Also, I know the image on the poster is soft. Like I said, I was tinkering. No point in pointing out the obvious to me

Before:

David,

I suggest opening up your lens as far as it will go. Regardless of what you plan on doing with your images, you want subject isolation, and f/13.0 won't give you that. You'll need to bring your ISO down accordingly, since you're increasing the amount of light into your sensor by opening up.

A typical mid-day setting for action photos will be ISO 200, f/2.8 and 1/3200s or faster shutter speed (depending on where the Sun is).

Once you get a good solid shot, you can do all kinds of things with it, as you can see from the posts above, but it all starts with a sharp, well-exposed image with the subject's face clearly shown (unless you're Mickey Mantle, then the number on your back says it all ;) ).

another question.......

if my lens is 3.5-5.6 why are my photographs saying the aperature is f 13 or any number above 5.6 ?

also if I get my new lens as I am hoping for......either the f4 or f2.8 will I have the same problem of my aperature jumping all over the place ?

If you are shooting Auto or P then the setting are automatically set to suit the exposure. When shooting in the bright sunlight try using AV mode and manually set your aperture to f/3.5.

3.5-5.6 means on the wide end, you can open up to f/3.5. On the long/telephoto end, you can open it up to f/5.6. In either case, it is still possible to stop down to f/8, f/11, f/13, etc.

RE: apeture jumping all over the place. If you shoow in AV or M, then you manually set the apeture. It will always use that apeture. If you use a different mode such as TV, your camera will pick the appropriate apeture to give you an exposure according to your metering. (example in TV mode, you set the shutter speed. If there is a lot of available light, then your camera will automatically stop down to give you a proper exposrue. Later, if a dark cloud blocks the sun, you will notice that the camera will automatically open up. Causing the apeture to jump around).

(For sport shots, try to stick with AV and then later M)
