Show Your Stuff!

the question recently came up whether this forum was for 'showing your stuff' or not, photographically speaking. the question was answered by Doug.

so, let's see some photos! post your pictures. strut your stuff. be shameless! a little self-aggrandizement can be good besides, i like seeing other's work! if you know the camera used and the camera settings, lighting, filters, time of day, location and conditions, do post those as well. but let's see some photos!

the normal forum rules do apply. watch the copyrights, follow the FAQs and keep it clean; we are a family site.

you are also still limited to a 100k file size here. you can use the gallery for larger file sizes or post links to your image if it's off-site.

but let's see your work! show me the money! professional or amateur, both are fine. you might also mention this as part of the details about the work.

if you want tips on doing better work, that's fine. if you want hard critiques, you might be better posting in the 'Critiques' forum. but regardless, let's see some of your work!

Re: Show Your Stuff!

I took this in Newquay, it was about midday and overcast...sorry I don't have the settings but I have a Canon A80. I also did some overall adjustments to make it more moody.

Re: Show Your Stuff!

Here are a couple of shots taken at Disney World a few days ago.

Approx 35 to 40% of originals.

1. "Private Conversation" 2. "Flowers" This for all those who think I never shoot them.

Nikon D-50. 55-200mm Nikkor zoom. Auto settings.

Steve

Thanks Patricia.

Re. Mickey: my daughters are 27 years old now and we started taking them to Disney when they were two. So I've got a lot of pics of Mickey and all the other characters. Mostly with our daughter's arms around them. They still go to Disney just not as much. Since it's only a 2 hour drive from us, we still go several times a year. But it's getting harder and harder to avoid duplicating shots.

Re: Show Your Stuff!

Ziaphra -- gorgeous image! The waves and the spray are sharp and heighten the mood, the clouds are spectacular and the overall contrast level adds to the mood. Very nice capture!

Steve -- really like the "Private Conversation" image. Street photography or candid unposed shots show more about people. The color contrast of the flower blooms is really eye-catching.

Re: Show Your Stuff!

Went to the zoo to see the animals, but while waiting for the monkey feeding show, was lucky enough to find a nicely lit water bloom -- cropped from original image, curve added to increase contrast. Fuji S5600 - ISO100, 1/300sec. f4.5, 3:58pm -- in Sept. this allowed the sunlight to be at an angle that intensified the colors.
