I'm not a landscape expert however I'm trying to to learn more.

Here are four from today.

Any advice or comment always appreciated.

Hi Mark,

nice colours in the shots, clean and crips, a good photo for #1, i would crop a bit off the bottom and having just a tiny bit of green, other than that if there are no clouds not much you can do. #2 is nice enough, 3-4 are play shots and fun to do. but what do i know. oow, 5d, nice,

Thanks Bill..... in answer to your question when it comes to landscapes you probably know more than me LOL as I just don't do enough of them so force myself to try and get my eye in.

As for the 5D it is a lovely camera only got it a couple of weeks ago as I have a few weddings booked and am slowly trying to switch to photography as a full time career (hopefully within the next year if all goes well).

Very, very nice composition


#1

the jagged diagonal



#2

the triangle

a the mast of the big white boat - one side;

b top of the mast via the roofs to the big red house - side two

c the red house via the colourhappy boats back to the foot of the mast of the big white boat - side three

Great!

Looking further at #1 I can see a triangle

the left frame side

the "jagged" diagonal

the line between the two darker green areas in the lower part of the picture

Also pleasant...

Torgny, I like the series that you as in my opinion adds another perspective.

I've always found in my (in)experience there are two perspectives I generally take when I judge a photo: a) I scutinize the hell out of it and b) I walk away from it for a few feet, back to the photo, and then turn around and see what my own immediate reaction is. So, based on this, I find that on photo #1, even though the extreme foreground is not particularly attractive, the overall colors and proportions work fabulously. I would probably experiment with cloning away the bare spots in the midst of the grass.

#3 is interesting because I find myself more interested inthe background than in the foreground, so the photo is something of a a tease...

mark,

Picture #2, just wonder if the boats have some kind of "support" (like a motor cycle)
