p.1 #1 · A HDR photo for critique.


Please critique thank you
Tell me what do you like/don't like about my photograph so that I can learn more.
As I am only a student, I do not have the budget for an ultrawide angle lens and a FF.

550D 17mm f/8

Wow, beautiful image! Composition leaves me wanting more from the left side of the frame. Could you do a pano with a pair of images perhaps? Otherwise looks great. Not too ''over-cooked'' which you see alot of with HDR technique. Nice job.

Great image. Don't worry about using a full frame camera. The body and especially the lenses will cost and weigh much more for a very minimal improvement in image quality.

If you'd wanted to include more, rather than a wider angle lens, stitching a pano together is a good option. It's somewhat more complicated with an HDR image, but it can be nice.

For this image, consider adding some blue to the color balance (highlights and mid-tones), some gamma bumps and some dodging and burning:

I agree.
Beautifully done and always nice to see HDR done right.
Karen (Auntipode) has a far better eye than I do for color balance. Impressionistically, both variations, yours and hers look good to me.

Very nice. I think Karen is heading in the right direction, but I might push down the houses even more. If I was standing there at that time of day, I would expect the foreground to be darker. It's still a fine HDR.

HDR scenes are a tough gig. Doing HDR that doesn't "look" HDR is even tougher. It didn't strike me as HDR ... even after being told it was HDR.

Props to the technical effort and judicious use thereof.
