p.1 #1 · A foggy day at the beach


Some friends asked if I would get some photographs of them with their dogs. The fog came in lightly and I kinda liked the feel it gave to the images. C&C.

The tilted horizons in the first and second shots are very distracting ... more so in the first. Increase your contact a little in these as well.

Other than what I just stated, I like the over-all compositions of these shots.

They seem a bit loose to me. Try cropping a little closer. Nice expressions and posing.

I disgree with Andre a bit. This is a nit. I don't think the photos have a horizon tilt. I think the beach is sloping down towards the water. Even though the trees are out of the DoF area, the trunks appear to be going straight up. The dog's front legs -- straight up. I like them.

The fog contributes to the low contrast and the great even lighting. I wouldn't change the contrast. Doing so would take away from the calming effect of the fog.

We all see different things in photos. I'm not trying to argue with Andre... I think we just see different things in the same photos.

Nice job!

Tilt/horizon looks fine to me...

There may be a tilt to the first image, but doesn't bother me. I do like chuckg's comment about cropping/composing in a little tighter. With photos like these (which are really nice, by the way), I like the idea of going in close, or going WAY wide and massive negative space (although that's just my personal preference haha). Great work.

Neither image seems tilted to me, they both seem level.
I agree about cropping tighter, and work on expressions. The smiles and other expressions seem forced. To me it looks like the man is looking at the camera with contempt, and the woman is trying to force a fake smile.

The fog is not a bad addition to the image.

I agree on the horizon being tilted on the first, so I guess the score is 3 straight, 2 tilted. The second one is harder to determine, but it doesn't distract my eye. In the first it does. I really like the images and the fog effect, particularly 1 and 3, but I'd love to see 1 rotated clockwise about 10 degrees. Nice shooting!

Thanks for all the comments. I appreciate the feedback...and I apologize for not replying sooner. I see what everyone means about cropping and will crop tighter.

Regarding the tilt, I sat with camera level to the horizon and this is the original look. The beach was greatly sloped. I debated leveling them to the eye in post but felt they added something. Looking at it more, I feel the natural slope adds value in image #2 with the dogs walking to the water but I may straighten out image #1. The fog rolled in quickly. Any longer and it wouldn't have worked. Thanks again.

I agree.. level #1 a little more. The low contrast does not bother me. I kinda like it. Those dogs are so cute.
