Very nice shots, it helps to form a critique if exif information is on the pics

Of the three compositions I liked #1 best.I also liked theeffect there you intended toattain : ) (...agreed with musket on the exif, btw!)

Still, I'd crop 1/6 from the right handside and do a slight selective curves job on the rocks and a little levels histogram correction on the rest.

Cheers,

Bahadır

Very cool shot. I definitely like the first one best. The extra space on the right really gives it a sense of immensity. It does seem like the colors are a little muted, or maybe washed out.

don't know why the exif info isn't there... Didn't even know you could take that info off... is that something in Photoshop??? (sorry still learning everything there is to know about that program. )

I did shoot these in raw and jpeg... didn't do DHR cause I didn't have a tripod, which would have been better probably ... and am still a little confused how to set it up really. lol

its' all good... I'm still learning... that's one thing that's cool about digital photography... you never stop learning!


thanks for all the responses and comments. I did also use fireworks to lessen the sizes to post on the web... something learned in web design classes at the U ... that may have taken the exif info off too.

Well, good job on using Fireworks for sizing and compression. As far as I am concerned, it has the best algorithms of any program for doing so. You get a smaller sized file with greater image than other programs. This seems to be a little known trick.

As far as the EXIF, both Photoshop and Fireworks can remove the data, but generally do not unless you ask them to. Check through your settings and see if you have something related to Metadata checked or unchecked. It also might happen when you are "Saving As..." or exporting. Make sure that if the option to preserve data is available, it is properly checked or unchecked.

thanks for the info Coachjames. I will make sure I keep an eye out for that.

Don't know if I've see it before, but will look for it next time.
