These shots were taken at yosemite, CA from last weekend. Granted the landscapes were beautiful as it is but having a polarizer brings out the clouds so much more and gives everything a crisp look.

please comments on these shots so that I know what I am doing right and what i need to work on.

thanks

seth

Seems as though you understand what makes a good photo already.

Very nice



And Yosemite is a very beautiful place, right up there with Glacier.

Very good job it brings back fond memories when I tried to climb that sucker. The operative word is tried.

On the whole, quite good landscape shots - 3 and 4 are the clearest, though I feel no. 1 is the best composition.

Though all will probably print fine (at medium print size), for optimal screen display (or large prints) you may want to consider running some post-process noise removal on the plain sky areas in 1 and 2.

1 and 4 would also probably be effective as B&W if you wanted to try some variation in final look - particularly if you dodged and burned the highlights and shadows a bit, to increase the final contrast range.

One thing that can help spice up the overall compositional 'punch' of landscape shots is to try and get an interesting foreground object into the frame as well (particularly if it adds a bit of colour that is different to the main scene). Of course, this relies on having enough depth of field to the shot to support both in focus. When shooting such landscape compositions,a hyperfocal distance chart (for the lens you are using) can come in handy (though it's a real pity the Lumix cams do not display distance readings)... :roll:
