I like #2 best, Phil wrote 'I see dead pixels, can you expand on which picture this is and location of the dead pixels, newbie question.

Cheers

2nd Shot is amazing, and 3rd looks great too. :D

Shot 1 is a good attempt – the lighting is very flat and a challenge for anyone. On days like this you might want to take moody tight shots.

In the 2nd shot I might have shot vertically instead of horizontally and got tighter on the bottom-middle of the frame. There’s a bit too much empty black space for my taste.

I like the building in the 3rd shot – good exposure. The foreground is a bit boring. Was the building as well lit on the other side? The water looks quite calm and you may have got a nice reflection if you shot from the walkway on the other side.

Thanks again for your C&C.

Virtualsnapper, I thank you for your honest cc's.

As for the third photo the lighting wasn't that great from either side.
I did a 4sec exposure on that one and still had to do some pp work to brighten it up.

In that case you did a pretty spectacular job with that shot.

I love em, Rui, and I like the first in the series, tho Snappy says it is flat..I find it an interesting shot, am so glad you had a great time, and have great photos to prove it.

were there any waddles, perhaps?


love,

p
