Re: Recontres Arles Photo Folio Review

Hi PhotoEclat,

I think you have some good composition in your photos, but I find them to be kind of washed-out or too pale. There's not enough contrast to really catch your eye.

The third photo posted (people walking) is cool, but it's kind of blurry and there's no real detail aside from teh sillouette of legs.

But, like I said, I really like your composition.

What kind of processing are you applying to your photos? I think they have the potential to be really interesting shots, they just need a little extra kick to them

Re: Recontres Arles Photo Folio Review

thank you very much for your reply, i agree that the jpg conversion didn't work out too well, but actually there is a good amount of detail. perhaps my website shows them off a bit better:

what kind of processing where you thinking of?

Re: Recontres Arles Photo Folio Review

I love the one of the old ice machine

I still find them to be too washed out or high contrast or something. I can't put my finger on it...

I wasn't actually thinking of any processing, I was wondering what processing you do to your photos to get the effects that are displayed in the photos you posted. Then I might be able to figure out why they seem off to me.

i used a filter called buzz lite for those pictures, i guess this is what you are trying to find out.
