    Haven't posted anything in a little while; just finished exams, been lazy


    It was raining at the house, and my brother was here, so I took this before getting too wet.

    Had a good chat with Taylor Jones over mail and he suggested I'd give his project my own try, so I did.




    fyi ; my girlfriend and her brother (rest in peace.)

    I find it so incredibly frustrating when people on this forum, or even photographers in general, fuss about trivial technical non-issues, all the while forgetting to go outside and actually take interesting photos.
    what was it you said a few pages ago?

    "How is that even criticism" when someone said one of your photos was boring?
    I agree that it's not a particularly interesting photo, but he's tryna get some criticism about post processing, which imo is fine in this thread, it's still on topic and it still helps us all as we all get an idea of how much is acceptable etc.
    Personally, I thought the photo looked quite visually pleasing with the amount of vibrancy it had, even though i'm like 8 hours late to this party

    As far as the whole "oh wow bopie your photos look so great I wish I could be as good as you" thing you were talking about, the thing is that people have different styles, I love bopie's photos, but they don't have the sort of look and feel in the visual aesthetic that I personally try to achieve, I don't mind going for similar subject matter or composition, but in the end the difference comes down to the fact that he captures it in a really interesting way and has his own style of post, I have my own style of post which aims for a completely different visual aesthetic. It might not end up as "good" as his photos but I couldn't make my own exactly like his without feeling like i'm trying to copy someone else verbatim, and lets face it, we don't need another bopie, one is enough (and I mean that in a good way), I think everyone should just develop their own styles while trying to take on that constructive criticism so that we actually have variety in the forum rather than trying to adhere to one particular user's style

    edit: shit sorry for bringing this up again, just had to call you out on that one.

    great photo, i'd personally like to see a bit more natural toning, but it's great even like that.
    my only other criticism is that the sun is a bit too distracting, the bright white mass on the right side shifts the balance of the image and draws the eye away from your subject matter. On the other hand, it does help to create a sense of time and atmosphere along with the post, so it's a bit of a double edged sword there.

    I'm sorry but in my personal opinion you ruined a nice photo with the post processing.

    I don't like how the blacks are clipped off so far, the vignette needs to be corrected (unless you intentionally put it there, but i still dislike it) and the split toning isn't very pleasing to my eyes.

    On the plus side i love the location and the moment and feel the picture itself captures which is really what matters most in photography, so in that, great picture.

    The reason why I didn't crop out the sun is because I have already cropped it quite substantially. And I believed that if I cropped it even more, quality loss is prone to happen.

    As for the split toning, it's all really experimental. I tried going for a soft golden look, but dolton is right, I may have gone a little over board with the vignette.

    Has a very atmospheric feel to it, the time stamp is a buzzkill, angles feel kinda odd aswell.

    All in all it's not that bad, but it has a lot of things that could use some improvement.

    Thank you! How do you think the angle could be better? I do agree with you, but I dont know how I could improve.

    Edit: I think the colors right were the time stamp is placed are simple enough to allow for editing... I'll see what I can do :/

    Decided to start some of my A2 photography work and we've been given loads of hella vague brief titles to work with just to get us started. This one is under the title of Looking Toward/Looking Away.

    The general softness lets it down for me, while soft images can help the image attain a certain atmosphere it doesnt for me in this case. IMO of course.

    Well seeing as the corridor is made of straight lines, I think (this is only my opinion) that it'd look better if the "floor/wall" lines pointed the same way, kind of like this.



    Though this kind of photography is pretty individual, some like it, others prefer to ignore the 100% correct angles and just take a photo they like.

    So you think that centering the angle a bit more is the ideal? The picture you linked doesn't work :(



    Also; thanks for all the feedback from you other guys as well! :)

    Other than the composition being a little boring. I have plenty of others, though this is the only one I have actually put through minor PP and converted.

    I think that's excessive blurring going on. I like the hue of the green, and I like the lights, but the contrast between those two is too weird, it makes the lights look like cheese. I think some type of blue light would look better?

    Also facebook compression, I feel your pain.

    The colors clash. Dull'd out greens and that heavy yellow just aren't appealing. The trails (?) look really fake (whether or not they are) because there seems to be some compression around them that doesn't appear constant through out the whole image. The trail things look very low to the ground from this angle, and that gives it a flat, dimensionless appearance. I'd prefer something like this where the trails come up off the ground, to give it some dimension and body.

    The bokeh-vignette just adds mess in my opinion.

    Was my first go at the light trails, I just used path and brush.

    I do like that picture you linked, I'll have to reference it later when I try again.

    i think the pose is really unnatural and awkward, a lot of room for improvement i think. Maybe search through photos that you like and find posing inspiration from that.
