Now that I've figured out how to save for the web without messing up the colours, here's a minor flood of images taken around Burrator Reservoir one day last week.

#1- good framing, but not always necessary, i would like to see the foreground emphasized a little more, but i am not sure what restrictions you have on how wide you can go since i am unfamilar with your equipments..

#2- i like this one quite a bit, though i think underexposing a 1/2 stop or so would really help out your saturation a little more...

#3- this one is my favorite by far.. good shot.. could use a bit of sharpening, but that should be easy enough to do..

#4- a little centered maybe.. and i think a circ-pol or something could have increased your saturation and made that sky stand out a little more maybe..

#5- the sky is just a bit dull here i think.. and the weed on the right dominates almost too much...

that all said.. its a good set!.. i was just being a little hypercritical in the interest of learning

Thanks for the comments Dustin:

>you can go since i am unfamilar with your equipments..

It is a bit of a cliche this one isn't it? You're probably right about the foreground: the image was a 9-image stitch up (3x3), so there's no problem going wider, it's just that the forground was very dark compared to the view beyond.

>#2- i like this one quite a bit, though i think underexposing a 1/2 stop or so would
>really help out your saturation a little more...

Hmm, I probably should have moved the mid-tones to the right in the levels (a little darker).

>#3- this one is my favorite by far.. good shot.. could use a bit of sharpening, but
>that should be easy enough to do..

Interesting: it was taken under unfeasably bad light (a very dark day), hand held and using the wall to try and stop camera shake (no tripod that day). I very nearly didn't post this one :lol:

>#4- a little centered maybe.. and i think a circ-pol or something could have
>increased your saturation and made that sky stand out a little more maybe..

I see where you're coming from, can't remember if I used my polariser or not, probably not as I was struggling with low light that day.

>#5- the sky is just a bit dull here i think.. and the weed on the right dominates
> almost too much...

I like that weed ! But you may be right that it dominates the composition too much.

>of learning

Feel free to be as critical as you like, we're all trying to improve!

Regards, John.
