I hate middle of the afternoon outdoor shots, but when it's Brooke Becker, and it's the only time she has to shoot ... who can refuse. All the shots were taken last Sunday at about 3pm at Lake Grapevine, Texas

Nikon D300 • Nikkor 28-70 f2.8 lens • SB-800 flash • lots of sunlight!

I'm going to preface this with the fact that I'm strictly an amateur photographer, on this site for one reason and one reason only - to learn from the professionals and other serious non-professionals who post here, so take my comments in that context.

One of the problems I have in using this site for learning is when you see a photograph like #2 that, in my opinion, has a couple of major issues (top arm is two entirely different colors, big distracting square splotch of sand by navel), but yet all of the comments are "great shots". Since not one of you learned photographers mentioned anything, I have to assume (being the novice that I am) that those things are just fine in a glamour photograph. Is that the case?

Please don't take this as any kind of slam against Marty's photographic skills. It's definitely not meant that way at all. He's better than I ever will be and his photos are usually among the best here. But I would expect that with the level of expertise on this board that nobody, no matter how good, would be above honest criticism by his/her peers. Seeing nothing but "atta boy" type "critiques" doesn't help anyone, least of all someone like me who is trying to emulate what is seen here.

Thank you for reading this. I'll slink back to lurk mode now.

Yes, all the images were taken with my trusty SB-800 speedlight. I suppose I could have used my Alien Bee 800 with my Vagabond2 portable power supply, but then I didn't want to haul everything up 20 foot rock piles and across the quicksand-like marsh to where we ended up shooting. Call me lazy, but I like shooting with my light portable SB-800 speedlight.

STOP SLINKING!!! LOL I agree with pretty much everything you said. Sometimes we get blown away by the beauty of a model, or the composition of an image and feel the urge to compliment the photographer ... rather than point out a specific element of their image that (in our opinion) could be improved. Sometimes praise is given because the overall impact of the image was pleasing. And, sometimes we offer praise to encourage the photographer ... much like a parent praises a drawing made by their child (rather than pointing out that the child used a purple crayon for the sky color and colored outside the lines).

I know my pictures are not perfect ... and none of my models are perfect ... and my Photoshop skills can be sloppy at times ... and my lighting technique tends to be stale ... and my sets are overused ... and I know that my photography is better than some, worst than others ... but I still love photography!!! And hearing an ocassional "atta boy" from my peers on this board can sometimes be the just the ticket to get me through the slow times.

I was under the impression that the "Photo Reviews & Critiques" thread was in a different area. =p
