Just wanted to know what you guys think of this shot? I took it with a canon A70.
if it was bigger and maybe a bit more contrast, I'd like it
look up the rule of thirds
it's all sky though
yah but the light house is smack in the middle
It would be good to get some different positions, sometimes center shots are better.
or if he'd moved around the lighthouse, then he could have had it going up the left side, the building going along the bottom, and the blimp balancing the rest of the frame in the top right.
Where was that taken?
maybe a tilt would also make it interesting
are u refering to my comment
Probably. I've noticed that is often the first thing you suggest even if it is not what is needed.
but i think in this case it is needed, the picture would look better if it was taken at a different angle or not right in the middle, i just said it so people would look things up and read up on things to help them take better pictures, its just constructive critisizm, almost everyone here says "its cool" or "it sucks" but that doesnt help them make their pictures better, i was just trieing to point them in a direction to better thier skills, but i goes it was kind of a blunt way of saying it, and i think i only used that comment 2 times so far.
Its alright. The leading line of the lighthouse is great. I dissagree with the rule of thirds on this one. Though two things bother me. The lower right, and lower left corners. The lower right corner's light house is kind of out of place and distracting. And the people on the lower left bother me too. I know there is nothing you can do about it, but thats just me. And its kind of bland.
Thats my .02, and a bit more.
if you want me to buy your kit lens, I want those damn pictures I have the cash in hand.
Here are some other shots i took that same day. Thank you so much for the opinions. Can you please explain the rule of thirds?
whoops one of them is the same pic, here is the other different one
On the third one, you almost had what I referenced. Just a little wider or farther back so you could see the ground (and preferably a person sitting on the bench) and it'd be sweeeet.
this on eos good sort of fallows the rule of thirds
I can see what everyone is saying about the rule of thirds, but I think in this instance it works because the lighthouse/tower draws your attention to the blimp. However, I would probably adjust the colors in photoshop to make it a little more interesting. I really like the last picture posted with the blimp off to the left though too.
