p.1 #1 · couple and car


pretty. From December :-( so behind.... Anyway feel free to comment. These kind of shots are traditionally my weakness. If I could do one thing differently, it would be to position the couple to the left of the car but I was concentration a lot on the sky too, I tend to get blinded by a good, stroppy looking sky.

It was a one light setup bounced of a wall behind me. High ISO, later in the day. We lost lots of opportunities earlier because a storm came but we manage to duck out during the reception for this set.

There are many others, I just like this. If you don't, tell me why. The set has not been handed over yet so it wont be up for long.

LIke it. My only nit would be the amount of space on the left which doesn't seem to have anything of interest in it. Love the mood and lighting though.

Alex, yes I agree. I remember now what it was that I was thinking at the time I was being sky focused and looking at the way the clouds were formed - possibly too much.

Thats the problem with being so late with processing - its less easy to remember what I was thinking at the time and so the learning process isn't as clear and immediate for me.

Thanks for your input though, it means a lot to me.

However, the really good news is that my folks have come over from the UK and bringing me a llitre of Caol Ila and I still have half a bottle of Talisker on the shelf. So, its not all bad......

Great shot. They'll love it. They won't care about the technicalities.

Nice shot and processed very well. As mentioned, I would prefer to see a little more of the car and maybe a little less of the empty space on the righthand side.

Also my eyes keep getting drawn to the unnaturally bright rear end portion of the car. I feel like some of the localized brightening spilled over onto the clouds and pavement a little too much in this area of the photograph.

Is that a reflection of people on the car's bumper under the headlight?

Otherwise, I don't care about the technicalities, I like this image a whole lot; even the puddle of water to the rear of the car.

Reminded me of hearing about a shooter who brings a couple of liters (gallons) of bottled water to a shoot.
If he runs across a situation where a little water spillage could enhance the mood. Bamm .... water is spilled as needed.

Like the shot....keep looking at the empty space on the left. Would like to see more of the car.

Nice capture!
Are you sure this was bounced off a wall?
Th shadows are too sharp and defined if it is.. looks more like it was a direct flash.
Also agree on the too much open space to the left of the shot as it somehow draws my eyes there.

I'd crop a bit off the left and clone the puddle out the image.

Ooooo Caol Ila, nom nom. Found a really really nice peaty Bruichladdich the other day. Nectar of the gods.

Do me a quick favour, lets see a square crop with the couple in the middle and some of the space to the left gone...

I like the use of dead space in the shot. Works well IMHO. Excellent use of local industry

Balance, schmalance. The couple will never even notice what we all obsess about here.

What I would edit however, is cloning that puddle out near the rear of the car.

Great shot. Really like the mood.

Hmmm, not entirely. I did a set later bounced entirely off a bank of bridesmaids dressed in white. but Im pretty sure that was not then.

It could well have been direct, higher and to the right on a stand, as per the reflection of the Bentleigh's bumper.

Wow, I wish banks of bridesmaids dressed in white were more common - that would be perfect for bounce!

I like the last shot the most, cropped in close.
Well done your photography is coming along very nicely.
