hey guys...

a couple days (weeks?) ago, i posted a thread with pictures from a hike i took a little bit ago...

here are three more shots from it..that i'd like opinions and critiques on...

now, when i was shooting...i couldn't find a good way to frame this spot for anything...i wanted to capture the flow over the flat, flood cleared rock...

wat do you think?

any help will be greatly appreciated! and will help my improve my photographic technique...(what could be better than the satisfaction of helping an aspiring young photographer perfect (perfect?!) his technique! )

thanks!

Vito

here's the second one...

much different angle...nearly directly above the falls (on the bottom of the frame)....

as you can see from this angle....i was trying desperately to get a pleasing composition...

lol

ok, last one...this time i promise

this one, has the most "flow" to it...but the "flow" leads really close to flying out of the frame...and doesn't seem to lead to anything..

wat do you think?

thanks!

Hey Vito,
I personally like that 1st one a lot. Would be great if you had a leaf floating down the stream, but hard to do at those shutter speeds. 2nd one I like the different view of a falls, but I don't care for the green leaf at the top, try cropping or cloning to see what you think. 3rd one, I don't think it really flows out of the frame, it does flow to the calm pool in the upper left though. I don't care for the sticks and leaves in the upper right, I think it distracts. After all that nitpicking, I will say you do a great job on the flowing water shots, something I haven't tried yet. Keep it up.

thanks gocubs!

i really really REALLY appreciate nitpicking...honestly...no sarcasm here

thanks a ton

if i can learn to shoot the perfect photo, that no one could find ANYTHING wrong with...i know i've got a good shot

so, thanks

and, yes, i agree about the sticks...i think the shot is straddling two different shots...one that wouldn't have them in at all, and another that would use them in the composition...but this shot, they just intrude...

thanks again!

Vito

I only nitpick 'cause I know you can take it the right way and yo ask for it.
"and, yes, i agree about the sticks...i think the shot is straddling two different shots...one that wouldn't have them in at all, and another that would use them in the composition...but this shot, they just intrude..."
The problem here is if you crop them out, you loose the calm water at the top where I think the pic flows to, might not have worked out how you wanted, but no way to know until you take the picture which is better than not taking one.

let's see..i'll try out the healing brush...which, IMO is the best tool in PS....it's like the clone tool, but SMART

it adjusts the luminosity to match the surrounding area....it's amazing...

lol

i'll try it, and post if i have any success
