greetings, if you arent looking for CC, what are you looking for? what should we say? i also dont understand when you say that these were 'just snapped off'. i'm commenting because i see you posting a lot, which means you really like shooting and i'd be happy to help.
I know when a person looks at a picture many things can go through their mind.
They can be critical of the expertise of the composition or techniques of the work.
They can look at it and immediately decide if the photo is enjoyable or repulsive.
They can look at the photo and try to explain to the composer what they could have done to make the photo better when they took the photo.. or what they could do better to make the photo better now that the photo has been produced.
Sometimes, people post photos purely and simply because they think the photo has some sort of merit.. some sort of ability for a person to possibly enjoy looking at it...
Sometimes a person could post a photo not expecting anyone to help teach that person how to do better.. but simply to hang that photo on the wall of the forum for any passer's by to simply peruse.. and possibly enjoy the view.
When I personally post a photo and ask for help in how to do better, or that it is a given that I want help unless specified.. then I would greatly appreciate the insight and expertise of fellow photographers who have the time and desire to expend their energy on examining the process that was involved in the production of a photo or group of photos....
I know it takes a lot of work for a person to sit at their computer and critique' a photo explaining how a person could do much better...
That is why sometimes I post a photo and I say, I am not looking for insight on how to do better on this particular photo... I am simply sharing the photo with all who pass in the night.
The photo of Alyssa is photos that I did not use any planning to compose or capture.. just simply turned around and clicked my shutter release...after focusing!
So, getting feedback on technique for photos whereby no technique was employed.. is basically to me, a fruitless venture. I would not ask anyone to expend brain waves on explaining what the photo was lacking or needing to do it better the next time because no skills were employed to create the composition in the first place.
Now, to the matter of PP.
Yes, when I post a photo such as this that I took not care in creating.. but simply snapped off a photo.. then anything I post I would GREATLY appreciate all attempts at pp.. because taking another person's photo and editing it is creating ART.
I love art! Not saying I love all art.. but I love art in general...
So, anything I ever post.. ALL go ahead and post your edits.. your artistic views on what could be done with what I present... You never need my permission.. the same with comments and critiques' I love all ... I love it all!
All of that said, to say this..
Out of respect, I do not want you all who come here and take the time to help teach me to fix what I am doing wrong on my photo captures.. to expend your talents on photos that I quite simply did not use all the skills I am learning here to create.
If you spend 20 minutes examining and typing what was done wrong on a photo that I used NO skills to create.. then I have wasted your time!
Any ways.. In my rush to capture photos of the moose... I was trying to shoot in manual mode.. OMG.. there is an open door if I ever saw one!
