last month I posted a few pics when I was at the seafront, here is attempt number 2
I like #2. It looks almost unnatural; as if the sea has been layered
I'm left missing a focus in the rest of them though.. It's not clear to me what you're trying to describe?
what it was last month I had a go at trying to do stuff like this and trying to get the best quality and am looking for people point of views where to improve on.
Here was last months
Nice shots. I like the wide aspect you cropped a few of them down to - fits the scene very well. #2 is great.
Looking at the link I think having the background does a lot for your shots.
I also think that #4 is good because it has more colours in it. I'm sorry if my critique is un-precise but I've been working with photography only a short while so it's more of a sense thing than knowing precisely what does what.
I'll have a go though:
What I meant by lack of focus is thatI'm missing you crop harder to pin-point some specific details or that there's a dof that tells me "this is what I liked about it". Also I often find that a dead on composition without fix points is really difficult to succeed with.
Perhaps I can describe it as a thing or point in the photograph that invites me to keep looking at it and then see the depths of it. Like a good intro for a movie or a game This because when taking real good time I come to like the other ones.
Especially #4 as the lines aren't horisontal which gives the image a lot more dynamics combined with the color change for each line (wave).
Again that's my view on it. You may have a completely different connection to the shots as you took them.
Selecting what describes the idea or whole is tricky as some want things very outspoken and others not.
Okay reading my post it's a garbled messed of words and meanings, but I hope it conveyed something meaningful
