instead of studying for mid-term examinations, i took a couple pictures around baton rouge.
1st two were shot w/ the canon EF 50mm f/1.4
3rd was shot w/ canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4.0-5.6
I know its not a required rule, but at least the statue picture would have looked better if you hadnt centered him. All the pictures are centered and while it may have worked for these, would have been nice to see something uncentered.
edit - talking about the rule of thirds.
edit2 - oh yeah, pictures
i think they should be centered. you want all of the water streams and such to be in the photo, thus centering the statue. It doesn't always have to fall under the rule of thirds.
I like the first one!
lens flair in first pic
did you put something in the statue's hand? In the first pic it looks like the statue is flicking you off
I thought he was flipping me the bird lol
when taking the first picture i thought he was flipping me off too, but there's a quadrant in his hand. i did not add it there.
and the lens flare is occuring naturally
love the lighting and the water spouts in the 1st.
the building looks like a wang
I think what I was going at was with the second picture the motion that my eyes goes is from right to left, left being the direction he is pointing, but then it abruptly stops. If you just offset the statue to the right a bit, it wouldnt be so abrupt.
But now that I look at it, I guess he's just holding his hand up in the air, I dont fuckin know
