I'm sorta wondering what is going on with my pics...every edit was warmed up more than the SOOC and there are some programs that when i upload...they go REALLY green and i'm not sure why. When i open the pic in either LR or PSE they are fine, as well as when i open the photo on windows previewer, but like if i open it in snapfish or something they'll turn green....and then print fine!? I've ordered through mpix many times and when i click 'do not color correct' to make sure it's not my screen they always come back totally fine!? Just now i opened this thread through my smartphone and they are WAY green....i'm wondering if it's flickr? Again...they print up through mpix non color corrected just fine!?
maybe it's the smartphones and tablets that aren't calibrated correctly? I gotta go with trusting the print lab i'd think?
Check what color profile/space you are saving in. You want to make sure it's sRGB.
Rebecca, I agree with most off the cc you have already received so I will try not to repeat. I had a look from my phone especially to see if they had a green or yellow cast and they looked fine to me.
#1. I'd like a little distance between her head and that right foot / boot (being nitpicky). Plus, the background is a bit distracting.
#2. I was hoping you would crop the bottom part of photo as it was distracting so I a very glad to see you did that. Nothing else new to add.
#3. This may just be me but this pose looks a little like a maternity shot to me. I think it is the side view with her hands resting around / below her stomach.
These are all SOOC. I haven't had achance to edit. They are from a couple of weeks ago as everything since has been snaps.
FL 64mm, ISO 250, Ap8.0, SS1/250
This has so many issues I can see which is why I want cc. I want to see what else is there besides what I can see (centred, underexposed, no light in her eyes). It is wet and gloomy here lately and I have been struggling with light.
FL68mm, ISO400, Ap5.6, SS160
FL26mm, ISO500, Ap16, SS1/8 handheld but supported
I'm on my phone again, and probably will be for the next week or so until we move in and get the Internet hooked up, so same as yesterday...
#1 I hope that Tracy can give some great insight on the landscape comp! She does such an amazing job with those and probably has some good cc to give. For me, I think I'd like to see some more of the lake. The dock/bridge seems too centered to me. I could be way off though.
#2 I think you should give yourself a little more credit. You do have some light in her eyes! It does look underexposed on my phone though, and I think that you would notice more light with proper exposure. Bump your ISO so you don't have to lower your SS. That would have helped with this particular one. Just make sure to pay attention to your light meter.
#3 I think you should try to color pop this one a bit. Love the color in the sunset. Try to bring that out.
#1 - Love the peaceful scene here! I like positioning of the foremost bit of land and the bridge coming out at about the 1/3 mark. Steph is right, the bridge is too centered horizontally, though. Usually you don't want horizons to be dead center. Sometimes it can't be helped, but if possible, you either want more sky or more foreground. In this case, since it was a clear day, the sky doesn't have a lot of visual interest so I'd probably have put the bridge higher in the photo and just showcased the water a bit more... also tricky, as there aren't a lot of reflections from the clear sky, but still, usually that will work a bit better. Great clarity and detail in the land.
#2 - So sweet! You DO have light in her eyes, as I can see catchlights; so if you bumped up the levels and played with curves, you might find that you really like the shot. Her expression is so cute, you've captured her so well!
#3 - LOVE this! Really beautifully composed, wonderful colour and clarity in the water and sky, and a great mood to this image. I would try to make the colour pop too... but not TOO much, as it has a gorgeous serenity to the tones right now that you don't want to lose by going too overboard on the colour, IMO.
#1- I am glad Tracy posted. I am NOT qualified to give CC on landscape shots. What Tracy said sounds great! :) LOL!
#2- I agree, there is light in her eyes! I think if you play with this, you could have a great shot. Yes, she is centered, but don't cast it out just yet!
#3- LOVE. This is one great shot! The colors here are amazing. Just a teeny tiny pop would make it even more amazing. This is my favorite!
1) I'm not great at these landscape shots. I think it's nice, but I'm wanting to know more about the right side of the photo. It seems to me that there's too much of the left bank/hill. I also agree with moving the bridge up or down instead of straight through the center.
2) It's underexposed but with a bit of brightening it will be a cute shot. I also think you could have taken a step back and gotten a bit more space around her.
3) I like this one. The color of the sky, the calmness of everything. I would have again taken a step back to give the picture a bit more room. Maybe add a bit more color and a slight vignette?
Ok, I had wanted to do Rylee's 4 year portraits this weekend, but doesn't look like that will happen :( I'll throw in a mix of yesterday's sibling shot I got (far from perfect!), one from Rylee's 4th birthday, and a few from a sibling shoot a did the other week...
