    Default Critique these shots of flowers


    0 Not allowed!
    I have been trying to teach myself how to use my new camera and thought would try some flowers (a bit old), instead of fish as you must be getting bored with my fish pictures . What are your honest comments and feedback?

    Number 1



    Number 2



    Thanks!

    I'd say your first picture is the better of the 2. The second picture is a bit dark and your subject is off center.
    What camera do you have? What settings did you use? (ISO, F number, shutter speed)

    Looking good though fins.

    I find both a tad dark. But they are nice and crisp!

    If only the second picture was posted, I'd say awesome. But the first picture takes the prize. I like the darker background before it makes the subject of the photo pop out.

    I guess you know that would take 300 shots with my camera and 40 batteries.

    Both were shot with a Canon 450D. Photo details below (I think...I exported the photos and renamed them when I uploaded to the forum gallery LOL), but I think the numbers are accurate.

    Photo 1
    Lens Canon EF-S 55-250 mm, f4.5, 1/40, ISO 800

    Photo 2
    Lens Canon EF-S 60mm Macro, f2.8, 1/80, ISO 800
    Also, it's a high probably arty failure Off-center was on purpose

    First one could be just a little ligher. It is sharp and well in focus though. Great depth of feild too.

    Second pic is way too dark.

    Nuts! I spent all that time setting up a tripod, trying to get the light as best as I could as I didn't want to use the built-in flash as it's too harsh, and was so wrapped up in looking at each shot afterwards with the settings that I used that I forgot the black background paper. Maybe tomorrow if the flowers haven't totally wilted LOL.

    I actually preferthe second. it has more of an artistic quality allthough the bckgroud is a little outf focus.

    If you only want to focus on the flowers however the first on is better.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Hi there,
    Great photos for starters. I guess the more you use your camera and try experimenting the better the photo. It does take a while to get used to new equipment. Try same subject matter with different settings and see for yourself.

    I love the first picture - personally and it is just my own opinion, when photographing flowers odd numbers look best. Both pictures have a crispness and a lovely contrast with the darker out of focus background.

    Keep experimenting and posting. I got a new camera last year after years of my old one and I am still getting use to that too. Digital great news for the photographer eh

    I'm leaning toward the first one also. Both are nice though.
