Okay, I've been changing around my GG portfolio to include some "non-portature" photos. The reason being is because I need a lot of work in that area and right now, I am at a stand still with models due to lack of funds for film, processing, etc. So, I am looking for a few ctitiques on this line of work if you will be so kind to offer your opinions.

Images are a little small to catch the detail in any one of the posts.

The Trade Center Towers (and almost any image) with a horizon that isn't horizontal loses appeal. Dead center subject misses the impact that following the rule of thirds might help supply.

#3 has great contrast and texture - would look really nice as a much larger image, I believe. The cathedral image has the best appeal to me of the three images.

I like the tonal range and contrast in the cathedral, and I like the arbor but I think it’s a little on the dark side. Try rotating the image for an even skyline and saturate the sunset a little more to make it pop.

Keep in mind that you probably won’t get to many critiques on architecture here in a forum dedicated to glamour. For a more detailed critique I would try one of the categories on Photo Sig.

Rick, I agree with you on all accounts. I just thought that I'd try here because of the members, and I didn't know about the photosig site. Thanks again Rick

Ok, makes a lot of sense. There are two reasons that I didn't correct that already. On the arbor, it's a full frame print, and when I printed it was as close as I could get it, and with regards to the WTC, I don't have photoshop to correct that, but very valid points and when I can correct them, consider it done. Thank you sir.

Well, I'll take you up on the deal, you'll see my post asap. Anyways, if you are referring to a Canon, I won't puke over that. I really have nothing against Canon's, they do make excellent cameras, I just prefer Nikon. Anyways, the only way that you could suprise me is if you used a disc, 126, 110, or an 8x10 camera for that shot. Anyways, thanks for posting.

While Photoshop is the defacto image manipulation/correcting program being used, I'm sure that there are others (such as Paintshop Pro and the GIMP) capable of doing what you need them to do...for a lot less cash outlay.

There is a lot of dependancy on these programs to 'fix' our photographs. It would be better if we all learned to get the images right 'in camera' first. A lot less post production work needed then.

(Of course, I'm still learning that skill myself... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img])

Absolutely. I can't agree with you more. I am what I call myslef, "Old Fashioned." Which basicly means that take the best picture you can with the camera and don't use a photo editing program like photoshop or paintshop, or any other one for that matter. They are great tools, but I think that the best way is to start at the capturing of the image, at the begining. Thanks for saying that, it was needed (at least in my opinion for what I posted.)

Isaiah, No, I usually only shoot Nikon as well. The puking part is that was shot with a coolpix 800 as it was all I had with me at the time. I wished I'd had my D70 as this was a target rich environment. I shot some 100 frames here and could of (if time permitted) had shot another 100. I like all three shots but agree that if they were larger, it would give me a better chance to fairly critique the shots. The cathdral is the best of the three (some bias here, I love that type of shot). The WTC shot is a great angle and colors work, again, a little small to get the true feel of the shot and some correction could be done in PS if you had that. I also agree that with the philosophy that "in camera editing" is the truest form of photography. Get the shot you are really looking for when you hit the shutter. As a side comment, that shot of mine posted is raw out of the camera, only sized down for the net. No editing was done to it. Your comments truly would be appreciated as I respect your eye and your opinion. ...Ralph Haseltine
