    Default Practice shoot CC please *Updated with SOOC

    Trying to get as much practice as possible these days. This is a few of what I came up with. BTW, did not sharpen for web.

    I shot all these with my Nikon 55-200mm...Aperture was opened as much as possible except for the group shot.
    Please give honest CC. I'm trying to learn.

    ISO 500
    F 4.2
    1/250



    ISO 500
    F 4.5
    1/320


    ISO 500
    F 8
    1/60


    ISO 500
    F 4.5
    1/200





    Here are a couple SOOCs. Not exactly the same ones as above, but they were all shot with similar SS's and the same ISO and Ap.

    #1 - it's a bit bright, not sure what you did in pp, so hard to say if you got the exposure right, i'd also like to see him less centered. is this in camera crop? Great catchlights!

    #2 - great ROT (rule of thirds), color looks off to me, too warm for my taste, again too bright - almost blowing the red channel, can we see it SOOC?

    #3 - exposure looks better to me here, too warm for me

    Good for you for getting out there and practicing!

    I agree with Stacey's CC. If you can post SOOC shots I think it would help us get an idea on your PP. #2 and 4 looks soft to me. Also, #3, I think the focus fell on the boy on our left.

    Great job for practicing.

    I really didn't do anything in ACR other than move the recovery slider (yes, the red channel was blown) and add in black. I did slightly up the vibrance and saturationas well. Would that make it too bright? Then sharpened and cropped...that's it. I was shooting around 7pm when the sun gives off the warmest tone, so I think that's why they look so warm to you. What would you do to make them less bright, since I didn't touch the exposure and I shot in the shade?
