    Red face For your viewing displeasure

    Gidday

    New to here and getting myself back into photography before heading up to Uluru for a few days and wanted to get some feedback on a few pics that I took some time ago...

    Port Albert at about 6 in the morning...

    Kangaroos on the 3rd at Yarram Golf Course...

    As I said, I am getting back into photography (long story) and would like some feedback from others...

    cheers

    Hi Brokey! I've had a little play with your shots to illustrate how I see that they could be improved. I'll try to explain my thinking:

    Port Albert.jpg Port Albert 2.jpg

    I've changed the crop to improve the composition and increased the saturation to lift the colour. Added a little contrast.

    Roos on the 3rd.jpg Roos on the 3rd 2.jpg

    The composition of this one could have been improved considerably at the time of taking the shot by moving in closer and giving the shot a little more foreground. I've added some canvas at the front, lifted the reds and cropped a bit from the top.

    I've done something similar to Ian and lifted the light levels on the church itself, straightened and cropped a little to improve the balance.

    You've got no real issues there Brokey that a little practice wont fix. Always look around the viewfinder to ensure you are capturing what it is you want to show and take a few shots on different settings. Your camera is perfectly adequate for what you want to do. (I shoot Sony too)!
