I really like the composition of the second one Dave


Agreed.

Top one is a little overdone for my taste but the second is spot on.

I think the top one is the best; has a certain "other world" feel about it with the jetty seeming to disappear and be supported by nothingness.

Abbey Fields Kenilworth by CarlMitchell, on Flickr


I have travelled fairly extensively throughout this wonderful country of ours, and I always find time to look at war memorials just to see if there is anybody with my surname on there. It's rare that i discover my Surname as it's relatively rare outside of South Lancs (although when I lived in Uxbridge there was a Doctor with the same name & initials as me). When I went on www.cwgc.org I found Men with the same name as me, quite chilling really.

Warwick Castle by Night by CarlMitchell, on Flickr
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

I like that Carl, detail in the shadows, no burning in the highlights on the castle and a creative star burst just in the right place.

Thanks Padge and L'Ang

I was driving home from a quiz night last night and decided to have a go at photographing the castle as it was quite a clear evening. I was';t sure about the light at the top of the tower on the right as I though it may ruin the look of the picture but think it actually adds to it!

If I could be overcritical I think I may have gone a bit heavy on the ISO as would like the sky to look a little crisper but overall very happy with it!

Whilst waiting for the greasy spoon to provide you with your morning bacon and egg roll why not use the phone in your camera to capture the excitement of the busy street outside?

When you say crisper sky, do you mean more cloud detail or just less noise,

Sorry - less noise.

That should be easily dealt with in processing (depending on the software you have) by selecting the area and finding your noise reduction menu, I also find a bit of surface blur can help in these situations.

Noise can be a problem on long exposure, high ISO shots especially in areas with little detail.

Pretty impressive stuff there Carl, I'd be tempted to crop out a large chunk of the empty space on the left.

Thanks Padge (and thanks for the tips above too) Interesting you say that actually because that's exactly what I did and showed 5 people which one they prefer, the cropped or the one above - they all said the one i posted above and tend to agree with them.

Absolutely valid point though

Space in a photograph tends to only be pleasing to people when something is travelling towards the space, or someone or something is looking into it (not a hard and fast rule, none are).

Interesting that your poll went for the space, I find the second one a bit 'middley' with the space being a bit of a distraction, but that's what its all about. Different people, different, taste, different view. Its a good job or else all photographs would be very much the same.

I think what makes the two firework photos stand out is the slight detail in the sky.
