All right, straight on honest, just as I love ;)
Photograph 1: The subject is interestingly highly textured.
Sadly, we cannot see the colors, as you converted it to B&W.
My question is: Why did you convert it to B&W?
Were the colors not of any interest?
Furthermore, according to the camera data provided on deviantART, you have used 640 ISO.
I would have used 400 ISO.
Your shutter speed would still have been fast enough, as your focal length was not very long, namely 50mm.
I do not really care much about the noise, and I like the fact that you are not afraid of using high ISO, but as you have told me a while ago, your camera is quite old.
Therefore, it is not a very good low-light performer (again, I do not really care about it!)
I got taken aback when I looked at the aperture.
The camera data states that you have used f/10.
If that is true, did you get this blur through post-production?
Furthermore, you could have used a much wider aperture, f/1.8, as you probably used your 50mm f/1.8, I presume, which would allow you to use a much lower ISO.
A little note: the mushroom is almost touching the bottom of the frame, just shift up your camera a bit.
Photograph 2: Compotionally, get down on a lower angle, then get closer to the machine, and let the wooded plank draw you into the photograph.
I would like to hear the idea behind the photograph from you.
As a part of a photo story, it would work.
Case in point: you are making a bed, your mother is helping, you got a shot of her whilst she is working, that would work.
Does it stand on its own?
In my opinion, it does not, although I would like to hear what is your relationship with this woman, and what is the idea behind it.
Photograph 3: This is a shot that would work in B&W.
A very contrasty B&W, Jared Polin style!
Try it out and post it here!
This is a good photograph, nothing spectacular, but not bad either.
Thank you, Xtacy!
