would you mind posting a non hdr version of 6? i think it is a pretty good compositionally and i am curious to see what it looks like w/o the editing. i have a feeling it may look good. also, if this is a multiple exposure shot, and parts are blown out/too dark in each of the exposures, maybe try to manually blend the exposure. PM me if you need help with it. it helps get good exposure in all parts of the photo while not making it look fake like some hdr photos.
also, i'll go a bit more into depth on why i like/dislike some of the others because i have some time on my hands and my first posts were short. sorry for the triple post.
1. i like it, but there isn't too much of a subject. it looks great… well exposed and such (but the middle of the outside of the building/window frame is a bit brighter then the rest and the bottom of the inside of the room is a bit dark). it is quite interesting to look at, and the room in back looks kind of cool too. my main gripe is that the bar across the window frame cuts off what looks like a hole in the back wall. maybe position the camera up a little more so you can see the whole hole.
2. dead center subject and distracting background (about midway up the frame on the right there is a fence or something). also a bit overexposed for my taste
3. really cool shot. i would crop some off of the bottom, but thats about it. i like how you found that one berry that is different. it contrasts with the other berries and the background. great shot. the highlighting on the red berry is cool too
4. i am not a fan of flower shots, but that is personal opinion. the bee adds to the photo though. i know it is sometimes tough to see when behind the camera, but if the bee was in front of a more green part of the background, it may pop more. not a bad shot though. i like the light a lot.
5. holy hdr!
6. see above. also, i just noticed, but did you vignette the top corners? if you did, is it needed?
7. dead center subject, and awkward body position. before when i said i like the first snowboarding shot, i meant the second one. my bad.
8. no real subject here
9. cool shot. i wish the left par of the frame didn't include a tree as it blocks part of the rider, but not bad
10. dead center subject. crop off of the left maybe. there is some blurred out foreground that i am not a fan of. and you cant see his face.
11. really sick. i would get closer though to fill the frame with what you want the picture to be of. i see what you were going for, but i think it would be more effective going closer. donna the resolution on these, but maybe a crop will suffice
12. the rider is moving out of the frame. not a big fan.
for sports (skiing/snowboarding included) try to always get the persons face in the picture. it adds a ton to the photo and makes it much more interesting. keep up the work though. i like some a lot, especially 3. and fyi, there are things that i like that i didnt post up, so dont take this is super harsh. i am trying to help you out so i put some time into telling you what i think you can do better. they are by no means bad. PM me if you have any quesitons, or just post up here so others can answer as well.
